Welcome...

So glad you chose to stop by!

I hope to use this blog to share some of my handmade cards as well as some of my scrapbook pages and maybe a few pics here and there that may or may not make it to a scrapbook page.

Scrapping for me is simply a fun hobby that I don't do often enough. More often than not, I'm a collector of all things scrap... i.e. tools, paper, embellishments...

Now to become motivated... Maybe this blog is just the way to do it...

Enjoy and come back SOON!

Just Us GIRLZ…Challenge #11

This is a LO of just an ordinary day. Since I have a camera in my possession 95% of the time, ordinary days can easily turn into photo ops… On this day, my mother and grandmother were in town visiting and as with all visits, we ended up shopping… Pam (not shown) and her mother (far right), met us for a portion of our store hopping venture and later we had lunch together… This photo was taken outside one of my mother’s MUST VISIT shoe stores… Notice the back drop in the photo. How appropriate…

So this LO not only documents an ordinary day, but it also fulfills a challenge issued by my friend Julie… The challenge was to create a 12 X 12 LO using at least one circle as the background… We were to also include a famous quote. The quote that I used is located on the arc of the circle at the bottom and it reads, “If the shoe fits BUY it… in every color” Julie, don’t know if the quote is famous in your family, but it’s FAMOUS in mine…

Anyway, had loads of fun creating this LO… Couldn’t stop adding colors, flowers, or ribbon... (circles too for that matter) Yep, I was pretty obsessive with this one, but I enjoyed every moment of it…

Well another completed challenge… AND it’s a LO… That’s an accomplishment in itself…

Enjoy…
