*just because the photo isn't perfect, who says it isn't scrappable?* :):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all...
I wanted to share some lo's tonight :)
First...is one I did for this month's chance at guesting for Sketchy Thursdays! :) We had to use the following prompt....Fill in the blanks:  "If I could __________, I would ________." and paint or mist in PINK! :) soooooooo here is my entry :) ..... the photo of Brookie is sooooooooo NOT perfect...but I love it just the same :) and it let me write my journaling on the photo :):):):):):):):):):):):):)  I also made this for The Creative Type....which is to "type" on your photo! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
My journaling: 
"if I could give you courage in a world of compromise - I would. If I could teach you all the things I've never learned and help you cross the bridges I have burned. Yes, I would...if I could." that is taken from a Celine Dion song! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)





Let's see......the papers, flowers and "grow" and other chipboard pieces are from the NEW Dear Lizzy line that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com.... :):):):):):):):):) And the vintage music paper is from Diana's ETSY shop! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is another LO I made with a photo of me and my lovely Sarah! :):):):):) This was taken by Gloria when we went out to dinner while at CHA! :):):):):):) I made this awhile ago...and submitted for publication....but haven't heard back yet...so I am going to post it for now with hopes that maybe, someday an email will come to my pretty inbox telling me they want it....and then ... well... I will remove it... maybe this is my way of getting it pubbed...lol lol lol..if I put it out there...then maybe I will have a reason to pull it down! LOL! Like that good old positive thinking..lol lol lol :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)



For this I used a NoelMignon.com kit! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And before I head out to bloggy land for the night...I wanted to share my new FAVE PJ's of Brookie's....I think I need these in MY size!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  27. Girl!!! I may have to say that is my new favorite layout of yours!! There is something to be said about "imperfect" photos- they tend to be my favorite because personality can really shine through:) Have a fab. weekend, I will miss you all!

  33. Wowwwwwwwwww! I saw that sketch and was going to give it a try- but mine was more along the lines if "I could have Johnny Depp, I would- in a heartbeat!" Don't laugh, you might see it on my blog!- Ask Melanie, we even talked about it today!
    sorry, I just hopped off Maggi's blog and I have Johnny Depp and the damn Love Boat song in my head now! Your layouts are always stunning my friend. Beautiful job, how you come up with all these unique designs is beyond me! Have a terrific weekend! xOxO
