Tower Bridge (CSI Special Deputy)

Tower Bridge:  CSI Case file No. 141


I used all the colors!
Evidence: Birds, layers, leaves
Testimony: Journaling tucked between the layers


I found this sequined ribbon in my stash and thought how cool it looked flowing across the paper like the River Thames.

Treasure Friends

     Treasure Friends and Create incredible memories

 My daughter and I both adopted puppy girls this summer and they quickly became best friends.  I adore these photos of the two of them out in the garden.  It looks like they are carrying on a conversation.  Since I think they are so incredibly cute I have decide to give all puppy lovers repeated views of these pics!  lol!!  8)
 I created the center piece with these awesome chippies from Creative Embellishments.  They are so much fun to play with and layer. 

 This is my journaling.

Back to school house

                              Back to School House

        Today's challenge #16 over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous is all about using office supplies.

 My project was inspired by Graphic 45 design team member Keri Sallee's Steampunk Spells Spooky little house.  The base of this project is a typical file folder trimmed and folded like a piece of origami.  You can view Keri's video on how to fold the folder here.  Does anyone out there remember the song "To Sir with Love" and the move with said title?  It is a very inspiring movie about growing up and preparing yourself for the world.  So on the inside is a picture of my daughter preparing to write her story.
 September for me is a time for hitting the books and back to school.  I thought Graphic 45's Typography collection was perfect for this little red school  house.  
 I used the 8x8 papers.  The base of the house is cut to 6" wide and 8" high.    The triangles of the roof are 8" by 4" cut into triangles.
Here you can write notes about special childhood memories.  There is a pocket to leave a  note.


The tiles of the roof are made up different shapes from circles to arrows traced and cut from card stock tag sheet.  The flowers are from a small flower punch.

This is where it all began.

Scrap Around the World has just inspired me so this month.  I love fairy tales!  Proms bring out the fairy essence in every girls life.  I took this picture of my daughter as she prepared for the prom.

Here I combine two pieces of Creative Embellishment chippies to create this corner piece.

A Beautiful Day

                                 A Beautiful Day

 Earlier this week I was invited to join the Creative Embellishment    Design Team!  I was over the moon with excitement.  I am a huge fan of their product as you can see by this design.


 Scrap Around the World mood board this month is all about fairy tales.  As I pulled by the lace canopy from the bassinet I discovered a baby prince.  He is the prince of my heart, my first grandchild.
 The bassinet is nestled in a flower covered meadow protected by the fairies.
 At the tip of this floral grouping is a tooth pick. 
 Here are some close ups of the beautiful Creative Embellishment chipboard pieces.  Simply magical

Sunshine in Regent Park - Craft Hoarder's Anonymous

Sunshine in Regent Park - {Craft Hoarder's Anonymous Guest Design Team}

 Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be this month's Guest Designer for Craft Hoarder's Anonymous.  There is nothing more therapeutic than rummaging into those paper and embellie stashes to see what you can create.  This week's challenge #15 is all about flowers.  It is almost embarrassing to think how long I have have the base sunflower paper I used here.  lol!
This is a picture of my daughter during our recent trip to London this summer.  Regent Park is so fragrant from all the blooming flowers which made it a sure fit for this challenge.

The base paper is filled with sunflowers followed by a soft teal card stock paper which I used my lace punch on then topped with this lovely door paper with stamping, misting and inking.  I used a variety of flowers that have been vacationing in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today and I hope you will join in on the challenge over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous.
