I cant change

The next installment in the lost art of blogging. Haha! Dying with so many social media outlets. I mean they are instant gratification, wouldn't you say? It is so much easier to share things without having to actually SHARE things. I am seriously the queen. I do not write handwritten letters, nor email. I hate talking on the phone anymore. Please just text me. Yeah I am one of THOSE. I will try harder. To share. To have a real voice. I love my phone. I need to learn to put it down and do something that I wouldn't normally do. Maybe just one day a week. I will try. Whittle my social networking down. Or manage my time better. Yes THAT really needs to happen. HAHA!

Anyway have many many pages to share with you! I am sure if you follow me anywhere else (there is that social media thing again) you have seen these. Maybe you dont. For that reason, here we go.

Beware it is a lot of eye candy! Haha!

First up is the page I did for the Pop Off The Page 2 class. Challenge. I lifted JJ. I really love her style. She has been inspiring me since the sis days. Yeah I have been doing this a LONG time. HA!

My beautiful daughter Raven. My daughter raven. She is 17. She sometimes feels life is hard, unfair, maybe it's not worth it. Teens go through this. She is beautiful to me. I tell her it isn't as bad as it seems. Life is beautiful even with all the heartache and sadness. She will be 18 in a few months. It's been a long (seemed short) journey to this chapter, but it's been worth every bump. She is my first born. I am looking forward to what life brings us next.

Me and the girls at cha. This is for the scrapjacked that went up last month. You still have till the 15th to play. Why not do so?!

Used lots of Whisker Graphics for this page. It is for the DT. I love those glassine bags. I layered bags on top of bags. Divine twine was used to stitch the tag.

All these next ones are made with the March Studio Calico kits. That whole lot inspired me. I love the Neverland kit.

So many different techniques. This one I cut my quote with my cameo. Layed down washi tape, misted then pulled up my washi tape. Laid down my quote and traced it with my gold pen. Viola. Title created. This was quite by accident. Haha!

For this one I cut that file (one of my fav) and I really wanted to make it pretty but subtle. I layered my washi tape sticky side up. Different colors. I then sprinkled it with glitter. Bam. Instant sparkle. Of course I used a transparent glitter so my washi would show through.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my cameo? Well I do. This one has a few cut files on it. The title, the frame, the butterflies. LOVE! I also like to cut my files a head of time so I usually do so in a nuteral cardstock. This one was a shimmery white, it didn't match the colors and I wanted it to pop. I misted it with the mister huey and now it looks awesome. Haha! I love how it turned out.

Last one for now. I misted a few doilies and then cut them up. I put them together with some staples and made my own pie chart. I also made my own frame for this page by cutting some cardstock by hand. Lastly I used glue and glitter on my clothes pins, spots and heart.

That is all for now. Today is NSD and I actually have it off. Not going to go anywhere. Sit at home and make something pretty. How bout you?
