Good Bye Larry

Yesterday morning I work up and I saw my baby Larry lying on the bottom of his tank. I was so sad that we lost our first baby. I told Quincie that Larry missed Lizzy so much that he went to visit her. He was a wonderful pet, even thought you could not pet him. I would tease him all the time, call his name out and he would look at me. After a few times of doing this, Larry started to ignore me. Love you Larry.

Twisted Sketch 116

I had a lot of fun doing this week sketch at twisted sketches. The twist this week was metal. It did take me a few hours to figure out what I was going to do. I remembered all that wire I bought years ago just setting on my shelve. I decided to make flowers for my sketch.

After I made my metal flowers, I took some white cardstock and painted it with my twinklings h20s. God I love those paints. I cut out flowers from the cardstock and attached it to the metal flowers with brads. Here is a close up of my fun flowers.

A few zoo layouts

I have been working on our recent trip to the National Zoo in D.C. So let me show what I have done so far.

There is Quincie and my two cousins Nick and Krista. They are trying to find the tiger. I used Sassafras Lass for this layout.

Cute little prairie dogs. What more can I say. I just want to and squeeze that cute little butt. I used Crate Paper that I won last month from Scrapbook Circle.

I love flamingos, so this is one layout of a few that I will be doing. I just wanted to go in their cage and push them all over. It is so funny how they stand on just the one leg. For this layout I used Glitz Design paper, three different black thickers, and Twinkings H20 to paint the Bazzil border.

Twisted Sketch 114

The brand new sketches at twisted sketch is up. The twist this week for team A is tiny. Right away I knew what I was going to do. Last week the family went to the National Zoo in D.C. and while in the reptile house I saw a blue iguana. He was so big, I think he was as big as me. I thought that would be perfect for my layout.

Don't Call Me Tiny

I used Sassfras Lass paper and stickers. I painted the chipboard flowers with my favorite new toys, Twinklings h20. The one thing I have to say is I did not do this layout my self. Quincie helped me out alot . Thank you Quincie!!

Duct tape fun!

A few months ago Quincie and I were into our duct tape phase. We bought every color and pattern of tape. And we made purses, lots and lots of purses.

Here she is modeling her purses I made.

This is the one she made all by herself.

This is a weave purse that I made and I still carry it around. I get compliments everywhere I go.

Right now my husband and I are in the process of redoing Quincie's bedroom. I bought a $2.50 trashcan from Target and wonder what can I do to teen it up. I thought duct tape flowers would be perfect.

They were fun to make but alot of work, I don't know how many times I burned my fingers with the glue gun.

I'm on the Twisted Sketches DT team

It has been killing me for the last couple of weeks because I could not tell the very good news. This was the second time I applied for Twisted Sketches DT team and do you know how excited I was to wake up on Sunday morning and find an email saying I was now on the team. For those who do not know about Twisted Sketches, it is a sketch with a twist. For the DT application we had to do the sketch with the twist of vintage. Here is my layout.

Publish Post

For my ACOT friends you may find some other ladies you recognize as new members.

Scoring with the Sassfras Lass mystery box

Last week on the Sass Lass blog, they were offering the mystery box for $45. I passed on this several times but this time I was getting it. Well it came today and I am so very happy with it. I say I have only 25% of this stuff already. Of course I'm not counting the alphas because you can never have enough.

In the box was 8 packages of flowers. Two packs of entwined blooms, four packs of in a stitch blossoms, and two packs of vintage brooch.

Five sheets of card stock stickers and seven sheets of card stock alphas.

Nine sheets of the journal tags and banners.

Ten packs of paper whimsies and two packs of the number chipboard stickers.

And 46 sheets of pattern paper.

Now, I can't wait to use all this fun stuff.
