sketch 47 from 52 sketches 52 weeks

Here is the interpretation of sketch 47.  I used two pics from my lil man(grandson).  He is very coy, he loves the camera and then loves to see the pictures after they have been taken.

I hope you like my interpretation as well as the pics themselves.  Please feel free to leave a comment and come back next week for sketch number 48. Have a Blessed Day.

Hey just another little sample of what I've learned

Being a relative newbie, I am on alot of the sites out there looking and trying to learn all new and interesting techniques. Now the one I am going to show you is not totally an original idea.  It's what we call scraplifting. Unfortunately, I can't remember who I scraplifted the idea from. And I am so sorry that I can't give credit where credit is due for this one. But I can say I had a lot of fun making this card.  I used my expression to make the cuts. Plain card stock from ACMoore, white and green plastic glitter, gel pens and red stickles. For adhesive I used my zyron and my 2 way glue pen, also used a piece of white and blue ribbon which I also purchased at ACMoore. (ya think I like that store lol) Ok so anyway here it is.

So please tell me what you think. Thanks for stopping by.  Have a Blessed Day

Sketch 45-- 52sketches 52weeks

Good Morning:
I've completed my interpretation of sketch 45 for this weeks challenge. I really loved doing this one because the pictures I chose brought back very fond memories. The two pics chosen were from a cruise my hubby and I took a few years ago. We had a great time as always and its the time where we are devoted to just one another. So, anyway here is the sketche and my interpretation:

I hope you guys like, please leave me a comment.  And don't forget to sign my guestbook.  Thanks for stopping by. Have a Blessed Day.

Veterans Days

First I want to thank those who have served in our military, a Happy Veteran's Day.. Our fallen are gone but not forgotten (nicely put by my son Victor Jr.) Would also like to thank those who are currently serving our Country.  '
For me it was a day off.  One that I took advantage of in my quest of cardmaking and scrapbooking. With the holidays coming I have many things that I need to accomplish.  Sending Christmas cards is a tradition and one that I enjoy doing year after year.  This year though will be the first time I will send out hand made cards. So, I have been practicing trying to make some nice ones. I beleive today I made two very simple cards, but in my opinion nice ones.

I used regular ACMoore c/s, the lavendar/white card was stampled using stamps from My Sentiments Exactly and then I used stickles for some bling in lavendar as well.
The red/wht card was embossed with snowflakes from Crafts Too and then also colored in with stickles. TFL

Vacation page layout

Well Happy Sunday to one and all. Today is Sunday and my hubby is away on a short business trip. So I had a little trouble sleeping, I hate sleeping without him. So anyway, I got up extra early, 5:30 am on a Sunday, can you believe that? That sucks, big time. But on the other hand it gave me a chance to work on a layout. I am in the process of making my son and his wife a scrapbook about the vacation we all took together this summer. And I wanted to make a page with all the pictures printed in circles. And so I printed them in the form of circles. The first one I cut came out all bumpy not a very nice circle. Then I remembered having seen a video on using the center point option on the cricut. Thank you so very much Pink Stamper you saved me, by teaching me how to use the centerpoint option. So I finished the page, it's simple but it has perfectly cut circle pics lol. So here it is

I hope you like, if you do please leave me a comment. Have a Blessed Day.

Sketch #44

Hello Everyone, How's your Saturday coming along. Mine has been running around a little this morning with my hubby helping his daughter get her car repaired. Someone slashed all four of her tires night before last. It's disgusting how people just don't know how to respect other peoples property. Anyway, havin got that done, it was that time again. I finished my interpretation of sketch #44. I don't know, I think it could use something more, but for the life of me I just can't seem to think of what. But this is the original sketch
and my interpretation.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Hope everyone has a wonderfully Blessed Day, and a great weekend.

A day dedicated to a little scrapping

Hi, it's Tuesday, Election day. And thankfully I was off today. So I decided to do a little bit of scrapping. I made a few Christmas cards today, and I made one that I think came out kinda cute. It was made with Joys of the Seasons cartridge, some gel pens and stickles. I hope you like it.
Here's another one I made.

I'm having alot of fun with this. This one was made with regular cardstock and ribbon from ACMoore and the stamp was from MySentiments colored in with gel pens. Thanks for looking.
Please come again.
