About Me

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'!

Hello scrappy friends! It's been a little while. Like always, life just seems to get in the way of having some time to myself and trying to faithfully keep up with this blog. Plus, with all of the many crazy, busy, little things going on in my life, my scrapping mojo ran away. I called and called, but couldn't find my mojo! I would pull out supplies with ideas floating about in my brain...assure that I would create something, anything....but then I'd sit and stare at those same supplies sitting on my desk for hours...Sure, I've done some little projects; like making ATCs and a few page layouts for swapping over at Scraps of Color, but other than that...nada, nothing, nil, zip, zero...get the picture?! I guess I just needed a little bit of inspiration to get mojo to come home. So I started hopping around different blogs, generally surfing the web and going through picture galleries. Of course, that's what I should have done a month ago! Mojo finally came home... So....Over at SOC there's a group of scrappers and card makers that enjoy using a wonderful artist's digital images. The artist's name is Robert Jackson. You really have to check him out. I love the fact that his images depict people that look like me; which is hard to find. Sure, you can use crayons, colored pencils and Copics to color an image "brown, cocoa, or tan," but the features still don't look like "us." HIS DO! Thank you Mr. Jackson! The latest challenge was to use one of his images in a project using the colors purple, pink and white. The image that I chose to use is called Madame. And this is what I came up with. (I haven't added a sentiment, because as usual I'm not sure to whom it will go). Here it is,
I wanted to give Madam's clothing some texture, so instead of just coloring it, I added fuzzy yarn. And added a small pink pearl to her hat. The decorative edges already added some pop to the card, and so I didn't bother to add ribbon.
