Gardening can be rewarding

I took a job helping out one of my parents’ friends while they are on vacation.  I am housesitting and tending to their garden and yard.  I was so upset that I didn’t take a camera with me today cause when I got there, there was even more flowers in bloom and it  was so peaceful and beautiful.  I did get hot after some weeding and I also didn’t like the mosquitoes……but I treated myself and brought some flowers home.   Aren’t they beautiful?

Been busy today

This is what I did this past Sunday.  Enjoyed a getaway drive and taking photos and having a nice picnic lunch with great company.

Then I did another layout of a new photo of Sasha I got today as well as some cards out of scraps.  It feels good to get some stuff done.


Woo hoo

I almost forgot to mention that I got registered in the Crop and Cruise event in Saskatoon this coming October.  It is going to be a blast hosted by Leica Forrest and other guests including the team from Canadian Scrapbooker.   Connie and I are both going and it is going to be a blast.

Up to my eyeballs in glitter

Used old BG pp and handcut my title along with some bling.

Who ever said applying glitter doesn’t mean you get it everywhere.  I had some on my face just awhile ago and I did this layout earlier today.   I got the neatest product called “Quickie glue Pinpoint roller glue”.  It is a very fine point and I added it to my title My Dad to give it a bit of pazzazz and applied glitter to it.  IRL it shows up so much more.  If I didn’t have glitter over half my layout and desk, I would love to use this technique more and it is perfect for very fine lines.

This layout is special to me as my Dad has been quite sick in the past, and again, I was blessed to spend Father’s Day with him this year. 

Round 4 Challenge

Used Prima Dude Collection \

I used the new PRIMA dude collection for this layout.  I also did a technique that is usually used on cards but thought it would be fun for my journalling note.  I stamped the Autumn Leaves swirl stamp with Versamark and then applied clear embossing powder and heat embossed.  I have already typed my journalling note on white paper.  I then used ink and my brayer and ran over the entire note to give it a colour close to my patterned paper with the squirl showing white.

FNC at Scrapbooking Fanatics

Using something old, something new and bright colours was the challenge.  The colours are different than I would normally use but the Prima pp and purple do seem to go together with Sasha’s shirt.

Let’s play Bugzee

Megan and Blake visiting here.

This is too funny……a great game happening on Lovebug which is their version of Yahtzee.  I finished Round 1 and starting on Round 2.  Here is my first one.  I used FP paper for this fun layout and used my cuttlebug to make a hidden embossed tag and chalked for colour.
