- Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art. I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them. I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing. It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

A couple of months ago, there was a paintstick swap over at Scraps of Color. This was an extremely fun, fun, fun swap. Just the way I like it: one partner, a due date and done! This is the stick that my partner made for me. I told her to surprise me with colors and whatever else she chose for me. Audrey, my swap partner did a fantastic job! And I think it's absolutely bea-u-ti-ful! It now has a spot on the wall in my dining room. That way, I pass it every time I'm on my way to the kitchen for Pepsi! Haha.
There's a challenge going on over at http://tammyscrapincorner.blogspot.com/. Anything goes....but the "twist" is to use a critter in your project. And this is the project that I'm entering. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, considering that I used scraps. I'm learning not to hold on too many pieces of paper (it just takes up too much room; which I don't have a lot of). Anyone who knows me, knows that this takes me out of my comfort zone...I really don't make many projects with animals (other than butterflies!); so I'm growing!! WhooooHoo!! And I have to admit, it was fun.

What girl doesn't like flowers? If I gave a number, I'd bet there were only a few that really didn't care much about them. But me? I love flowers. Real ones. Faux ones. Fabric ones. Plastic ones. All kinds. My mom loved plants and flowers and it rubbed off on me. I'm always trying my hand at creating them from all types of materials. It's like everything else that's crafty....it's challenging and fun. Try it some time. See what you come up with. I have to admit though...some of my mistakes, turn out to be my favorite projects!
That's right folks... http://jacksonsdigitalexpressions.blogspot.com/ has us on the ball! Keeping us busy already....with a sketch challenge this week. I love, love, love sketch challenges. Especially those that I can 'make my own.' This is the sketch: http://jacksonsdigitalexpressions.blogspot.com/ And this is my entry:
http://jacksonsdigitalexpressions.blogspot.com/ . Yup, it's new. And it's absolutely fabulous! The design team is in high gear and they are keeping us busy. The first thing to get us into the mix was to do a blog hop. This is the entry that I did using one of Robert's fantastic images.
