Our next challenge is our Bella Muse challenge.
This is where we provide you with an image to create with.
Here is the image:











I did an 8 1/2 by 11 page to fit infront of the sleeve of a binder. Lacee and I are doing a binder swap. We decided that we needed a binder to keep cool ideas in that we see on the internet of things that we would like to try, or cards that we would like to try to make. Neither one of us really make cards, but we are going to start challenging ourselves to do them.

In this challenge I also combined it with our Bella Unique Challenge. In the Bella unique challenge (all about techniques) we wanted to highlight Suade Chipboard and a technique on how to make your own. I used this technique with grungeboard to spell out the work ANGEL on my lay out. The saying on this reads "Friends are Angles without wings"


Here is a link to the technique:

Finished TH Clock Die mini.

It took me about a week to complete this little project. When you work full time and only have so much time druing the week to craft, something like this can take some time to put together.
Tim Holtz Die cut clock. I cut 6 of them out. I then spent several hours painting them, and also embossing them with Utee. Played around alot with colors, and added a bit of gold and glimmer mist as well.
After that, when everything was dry, I then cut the papers out into circles using the TH paper pack of Crowded Attic. I then glued them down. After all that was done it was time to embellish. That's always the fun part. So every night after work and after dinner I would sit down and get a page or two done. Looking through your stash of stuff to find the right things that you want to use is also a bit time consuming. So a week later the mini album is finally done.
I got this cute idea from Drew Scott.

So thought this was super cute

But when you watch utube videos of other crafters out there showing you something that they made, why does it always look so easy?
Check this out:
DREW SCOTT Click on his name.
I had heard of Drew Scott before, but this was the first time that I have seen any of his work. I just thought this was super cute..........so......because I have this die, I wanted to try this..................

Now Im not saying this was hard by any means, just very very time consuming. Especially for someone like me that works full time, and only sits at my craft table for maybe an hour here and there a night during the week. I started this little project last weekend...........here it is Thursday evening and Im still not done. This is just the cover that I am showing you now. Im in the process of completing the embellishments on all the pages and once Im done I will post the rest.

Antique Shopping

I hit 3 Antique malls this weekend. I love to browse them. Went to my first one a few years ago, and every once in a while I just like to go and browse. I found some really awesome stuff for my scrapping/cardmaking/altering. Although I dont do many cards, I want to start again. But I have so many things that I want to do and just not enough time. So what do I do? I keep shopping. I just could resist some of the good little treasures that I found, so...take a look for yourself..................

Super exciting

Just thought I would share this, because I had so much fun making this 7 gypsy tray for my mom, and I LOVED the Bo Bunny Time piece line, I shared it with Bo Bunny. It was so nice of them to reply right away and ask me if they could share it on their Facebook page (which of course I said yet to) That was a couple of weeks ago. Then I received an email from them asking me if it was ok if they also featured me as a Bo Bunny fan on their blog. Well of course I said yet..........so the blog was posted today................please stop by and leave a comment if you can.
