You are such a blessing ... and Funny Story! :):):):)

Hi everyone... :)

Thank you all for the love on my "Magic of OZ" altered shadowboxes! You all sure know how to make a girl feel AMAZING about her art! :):):):):)

And if any of you follow me on Facebook... I have had quite a rough week...and I have done a bit of venting/crying on your shoulder posts on there this week... as we all know.. life isn't a bed of roses...and we all have rough weeks.... so even though you may know me as the SMILEY girl... there are times I am just having a down week... I just wanted to share that as if any of you saw my wall posts this week...wellllll that is just the way it is this week for me :) Thanks for listening :)


And today is Thursday which means its time for a new Sketchy Thursdays! :):):):)


I used some GCD goodies, Kaisercraft embellie, My Mind's Eye's embellies, Jenni Bowlin rub-on that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com and those adorable little resin flowers in the corner are from Diana's ETSY shop :)





Here is our sketch this week :):):):):):):)



And today is also my second week as Guest Designer for Flamingo Scraps! :):):):):):) Here is the layout I made for their blog this week! :)  I used Crate's Portrait Collection on this one... :):):):)

And my title..."Funny Story" .... yep! My Mom is GOING to kill me for this one! LOL :):):):):)




My journaling: “She will kill me of telling this story! On the back of this photo, my Mom wrote – “Me with a wig – when you’re camping, you have to resort to something to look good!” I LOVE this story! Must have worked – I was born at the end of the year this photo was taken!” ~~1971 Niagara Falls :):):):):):):):):):):)





Ohhhhhhhhhhh and I am such an enabler... BLUEMOON is having a HUGE sale!!! All those collections that you have wanted but didn't want to pay full price for??? American Crafts, Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin, Echo Park, Cosmo Cricket, Bo Bunny and MORE.... well... now they are ON SALE at BLUEMOON!! Go check it out! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
