Hi everyone! :)

To those in the US ... Happy Memorial Day :) 

On NSD (National Scrapbooking Day), I went to my LSS "Scraps of Love" for an all day crop -- I was there from 11AM to 11PM (YES! 12 hours! -- but you know I got up every hour and went outside and got my walking in! LOL!)  .... and during that 12 hour period, I made 15 LO's, one card and one altered project :)

Over the next couple of weeks, I wanted to share those projects with you :)

Today's LO features the "Summertime" collection from October Afternoon, along with buttons from Queen & Co. and a couple of "A Flair for Buttons" ... and the wood title piece is from Fancy Pants Designs  :)

I used Echo Park's "The Wild Life" collection on my page :)


And I have to give a HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to my bloggy friend Wendi for getting this photo for me ... while we were in Simi Valley, California on vacation in 2014 -- I didn't EVEN think about getting a photo of this street sign that became a running joke in my family --- but Wendi lives in Simi Valley ... and I contacted her and she got a photo of the street sign for me!! THANK YOU WENDI ... YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)







The story that is happening all because of the photo Wendi got for me!!! THANK YOU again! :)






And here is our sketch :)

Treasures for the Princess :)

Hi everyone :)

Brookie has an obsession with Shopkins  -- she LOVES those LITTLE TINY toys that never seem to have a specific home in her room ... they end up here, there and everywhere ... lol! :) So I decided to alter a box that I had for her to store them in :)


I started with this box :)




And then I had this napkin from a co-worker that she had in her desk left over from her daughter's birthday party :)




And here is what I made with the above items :)






I painted the box pink and then used ModPodge to adhere the napkin to the top ... then I added mixed alphas, flowers, gems and little flatware to the top ... I was inspired by Ariel's song "Part of Your World" where she is down in her cavern with all her "things" she has collected - that's the main reason I used mixed alphas ... it reminded me of her mix of goodies she had :) 









And now Brookie has a place to store all those Shopkins *wink* :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
