Simple Art Piece

Hey there and Happy Sunday!
I don't know what's wrong with me but I wasn't able to sleep in at all this weekend
My brain was too busy!
Here's a 5x7 art piece I made for my family room
I used some Tim Holtz charms that I have been hoarding forever
and some MME Paper

I also misted some acrylic paint to add a little color and glued some bling to cover
up the little holes on the metal charms
and it really was just that easy...
Love it when things work out like that!
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the
EAD Hop!

Mad Skills...

Hey there...
need to check out the
the website is all done, and it looks awesome!

So this is a layout of the boys and a friend of theirs
paddling their butts off in front of our house last summer
they had great expectations, but
Not to crabs ever came to harm during this expedition
not even a minnow
I pulled inspiration from
from pretty much any of her projects
because well I think she's cool and she does amazing things with spritzes and mists

You can even paper piece with them

Sometimes your family isn't actually related to you...
when you're a military family you often forge fast and close relationships because
you have to depend on your friends the way you do your family-
And it doesn't matter if one of you move, or if you don't still talk everyday
because when you see each other again
you just pick up where you left off
walk in their front door (without knocking)
with your kids, dogs, and suitcases
and you're home

I love this girl like she's my sister,
her kids as if they're my own,
love her hubby like a brother in law

I love how our kids treat each other like family
arguing like brothers and sisters,
but sticking up for each other in the same way
and It's the coolest thing ever that they pick up similar interests
(and taste in clothes) totally by accident

These pictures were taken last weekend when we
went to visit. Thanks so much for a wonderful time!!

Starting today in our book discussion group, we're talking about
this book
Goodnight Tweetheart
I have to say, I didn't expect to like this book
which is basically 95% a conversation in Tweet form
between two incredibly witty people
but I ended up loving it
and because of it
I've become hooked on this show
Product Details
I have no idea how I missed it while it was running or how it ever got cancelled
because it is AWESOME!
You'll recognize almost all of the young actors in the show,
who are incredibly talented and you can see where it was a big launching point for them

I also have a couple cards to share...

and Basic Grey Olivia Paper

And for the day O'Love

I pulled out some old Unity stamps (I think it was the first Donna Downey set)
and just some PTI CS
I love simple!

That's it for today!
Thanks for stopping by!
Make sure to come back tomorrow for the

Hey there Sweetness!
I've got a little altered canvas to share today
and I do mean little
it's 3x3
what a fun little size to work with!
I got these at and
they have little easels to stand them up on too!

I covered the canvas with gesso then added some vintage dictionary page pieces
gesso'ed some more
sprayed some acrylic paint (watered down)
added some old rub ons
stamped that cute little eiffel tower
glimmer misted a chipboard heart and added the pewter love token
Tied some tulle around it and called it done
Think maybe I'll give it to someone who could use a little love
Getting back into the swing of things now that I'm back at a full time job again,
but I really am liking it so far
That's it for today!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday!

Hey Geeks!
Today is officially...
my. last. day. off.
before I go back to work full time at the Andrews hospital
I picked up another contract, and I am looking forward to it
it's just going to take some time to get into the swing of things
I've got a layout to share today

These pics were taken at Dover when we went to visit our
BFF's when they came back from Japan
They're stationed there now, which is thankfully just a couple hours from here
and I'm actually hoping to go visit this weekend
Paper is Bella Blvd, Basic Grey, K&Co, and Echo Park
I also used some EAD Designs VINYL RUB ONS
I'm telling you if you haven't tried vinyl rub ons, they will definitely change the way you feel about rub ons..
the vinyl is so thick and durable!
AND Most of the designs are larger, which makes them perfect for scrapbooking!
That's it for today!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
