…. My Sister’s Keeper

I am in love with the book My Sister’s Keeper.  As far back as I can remember, I have always claimed to not be a big reader but this book changed my mind.  When These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things put out their Fav. Book challenge I knew My Sister’s Keeper would be the center of my LO.  On my page I tried out a technique that I had read about years ago.  You print out a picture from your printer on regular paper, put clear packing tape on the top of the picture, and then soak the back of the paper with water.  After a few minutes you rub off all the white paper and you get a transparency of the image you printed with a glossy look.

The title… It’s Raining. is from the book.  All of the characters began a chapter with this exact line so it seemed fitting to also include in the lo.  I also added the last line of the book in the right bottom corner… i take her with me, wherever i go.

I don’t know how many of you out there are LOST fans but I am for sure. Every week I would tune in to end the episode feeling more lost than I did before. Now I fear that I will truly feel lost without the show to watch. What will I talk about now. Well nonetheless I want to make a few lost svgs. Here is the first and I hope to work on a few more over the next couple days. Click the picture to download the file.

Dharma (1) Hope you enjoy!!! Don’t forget to follow me (I’m really trying to hit 50 followers) and check back soon for more free svgs. Also I always love comments!!!!!!!!!!!

Peace Out!

…Sketchy Green Candy

Hey Hey Hey!!! I feel like it has been forever since I actually sat down and did some scrapbooking. I was working on my Create It Green Design Team layout and decided to use the great sketch from over at Sketchy Thursdays and loved the color scheme from Candy Shoppe Designs (they have a great challenge going on called Cotton Candy with a great prize from Magpie Club!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)… so I put them all together and this is the awesome layout I got!

I used this rockin’ pink eco friendly mesh from a company Nashville Wraps. It is definitely a new fav!!!!! I also recycled some tulle scraps and the fleur de lis tooth pick from the bottom of one of my kitchen drawers. shiny happy people 3 Peace Out!

... Manny

I went to Chico this last weekend and came home with a new addition to my apartment... Manny!!! I found this guy for $5.00 and had to have him. He was painted a marble grey but I think the black really suits him. My friend suggested the name Manny and it is growing on me. Manny will be modeling some fun projects that will be previewing this weekend!!!!!!!! Pin It
