I lifted the idea from a Mirrored Frame that I created in a class with Tim Holtz at CHA last year! Techniques are limited for the sake of the kids. I hope the kids like it. Will be back with picts from the class!!

It's hard when you lay your heart and soul out there, bear it for all to see, then your hopes are dashed!! Part of me says.... don't put yourself out there, don't allow yourself to be hurt.... settle for the mediocre.... you cry.... but I have to acknowledge those feeling and move onto the next step, the most important step.... PULL UP YOUR BOOTSTRAPS and try again... Keep trying until to you accomplish your goal. NEVER GIVE UP!!! For when then the day arrives that you reach you goal.... Watch out world... then watch your back so you don't get shot in the head!!! hehehehehe
On my long weekend, I created a few layouts.... here they are! I love my boy but I find it to be very difficult to create LO of him... I can do a girlie girl page without reserve, flowers, flourishes, all those things...but God gave me a boy....so here it goes ...I used Prima paper...TDF!!! the layered circles are cut out of fabric, and an added touch of hand stitching!!!
Here is the other page I did, of my Diva Niece!! I cut the flower with my Slice...gotta love it!! The stitching around the edge finished off the page!

Last night, was a special night for my daughter, Lysie. She was Queen of the 10th grade at the Winter Carnival....Her and her brother did a Sneak Peek on Thursday night....Lysie never ceases to amaze me...She said,"To bad Doug's not in 9th grade...I'd have him be my date?" Kids say the most amazing things... sometimes!!!
So, I can't wait to pick up my pictures from Wally Land and scrapbook them!!! Two BEAUTIFUL girls!!!
Here is a picture of a page I did about Dougalo... "Session" ....my extreme boy!!! I got to use Embossing Paste...how fun was that to work with...then surprise...surprise....I inked it....This was a fun page to do!!

I had ssssooooooooooo much fun creating this box....It was created using scraps off of my craft table.
Things I had taken out to use and never did, scraps of paper from previous projects and a "Few Finds" that just fit perfectly on this project....now to create a brag book to fit in there and it will be a complete project.......if you get a chance take a wander over to Project 52...it will be well worth your time!! http://wendyrago.typepad.com/project52/>
And what would life be if I didn't add some form of the cardboard ripple. So all in all I had a very productive day!!! Now to mount them onto their black cards....and back to the Gallery the cards will go!!!

The day of Love is right around the corner... the day to let all those special people in you life know how much they mean to you!!! I created this layout about my mom...my hero, my rock....
I used one of my favorite manufacturers paper....Webster's Pages....the flowers are colored in using my Copic Markers...you can't see...but I used Perfect Pearls to accent the flowers and leaves...it was rather tedious cutting out everything but the effect is WAY COOL!!! I rolled up my "Love Letter" to my mom and tied it to the page...
To my mom,

Hello everyone in Blogland...hope you had a wonderful day....mine was half and half...we had to tear apart my daughters room today for Servpro to come in and remove the carpet and tear out her wall...it was really beginning to stink...they came just in the nick of time. I am just amazed at how quickly it is drying out. When they pulled down the wall and all the insulation out there were icicles on the exterior wall...that was tons of water pouring into her room!! If you look close you can see them in the pict.
The other half of my day was creating this page for the Frugal Scrapbooker Contest. The flowers and leaves are made with packaging. The dots are left over pieces from who knows what and I used leftover Grungeboard for my "pop dots"! My kids voted this the coolest page I've done yet! Pretty good award from them...now for the judges....would be cool to win!!

Then it was off to Mom's, to celebrate her 70th b-day! We ate, We laughed and I took pictures. A fantabulous time had by all!! Here is a pict of mom with her girls.... FYI... my mother and sister were born on the same day....
what a great Birthday gift!!!
Now on the invitation it was clearly stated... NO PRESENTS. But who goes to a Birthday party with NO GIFTS!! I've always had a slight (an understatement) rebellious streak, so I brought gifts...of course! Another given....I made it that morning while Walt and Doug were shoveling off the roof.
You see...I won a Slice at CHA last summer and it had a glitch which caused me to have to send it back...well, the wonderful folks at Making Memories fixed it's wild hair and sent me goodies in the box.....it was like Christmas all over....Thank You MM!!! So....using those goodies, my slice and their paper....this is what I came up with..............................so very monochromatic....I Love it...now today I will make one for me...using the above picture! Yeah!!
We ended the day watching the Super Bowl....what a game....and what a Catch....Now I don't know about you but I watch it for the commercials too.....Rough though...Can't even get up to go the bathroom for fear of miss the Great One!! What was your favorite commercial? Mine, I think was the Doritos/Snow globe Commercial....so let me know which one made you laugh the most!!!
So I'm off to create.........smile, laugh and create!!
