1st YouTube Video!!

Well the time has come I have created my first YouTube video... and let me tell you it was difficult... it was a disaster and I don't believe it is all that "clear" but for my first try I am going to accept it with all its flaws.. IT IS WHAT IT IS..

This week I completed the Week 1 spread for 2015... I did the unthinkable... I mixed kits, I cut cards, I chop'n embellishments... but in the end.. I LOVE IT! Here are some pictures for those of you (us) that don't really do a lot on YouTube! For those that love a good comedy show... please stop by my YouTube view! Link to YouTube

Project Life-2015 Cover page!

Today, I wanted to share my 2015 cover page! It is a "Becky Higgins-Design H" protector sheet. I didn't want to do the full page because I knew that i wanted the picture on the bottom to be the focus and I didn't take any other pictures that day to go with it! So simple, not picture heavy, and says it all! 

Over at Victoria Marie's FB Group she posted a challenge to incorporate hearts on the layout... Which seemed fitting for my children's picture! I just love these babies soooo much! Additional, closeups of the different cards below!

I just love this picture of my kids... I wish I could stop time... Right at this age!

I even choose 1 word for this year "Patient" because heaven knows I am not that!

I used a black gel pen to outline the black card
(you can see it on the polka dot card better)
and I even "Gold Splattered" for the first time!

Sketch Challenge

The Challenge!
I had such a good time making this layout!  I haven't done a 12x12 layout in a very very long time (like... 7years) so talk about a challenge... I attempted another sketch that involved 6 photos and I was so overwhelmed I almost gave in on the challenge but instead I searched the net for something easier... I figured 1 photo was a better place to start... and I would have to say I am very happy with the result! Some additional photos below!

I used texture paste and  Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks to create texture and custom colors on the stars... The paper and embellies are
My Minds Eye "Boy Crazy".  All supplies can be purchased at Scrapbooking with ME! with the exception of the paper... It is pretty old!

I didn't think about doing the different colors of stars being that big that difficult... but I also didn't put into consideration that the ink colors would stain the paper (my first time coloring the paste) and I had to wait until one color dried to apply the second color... 

I knew when I seen the robot he would be used in this layout. I wasn't sure how or where he would fit in however... HE WILL BE ON THE LAYOUT! Well here he is... holding a card that explains this photo to a "T". The photo is of my husband and son.. They had been playing outside all day... and decided to take a moment for a drink and shade... About 2 mins after I snapped this picture they were back out in the dirt being well... BOYS!

Thank you for taking a moment to check out my blog!!!

I shall get back to making projects to share!
