Sharing the LOVE

I’ve been busy in the craft studio preparing for a Scrapbook tea that was hosted by one of my former Sunday School students and sorority sister.  Her name is La Tondra Lewis also a 20+ year Breast Cancer Survivor.  Her lovely home was filled with tea sets. I’m so proud of her gifts that she uses to support others. I’m sharing a tag I made using a Bug-A-Boo image and also reading the Scrapbook Prayer I wrote and put on my craft studio sign.

Our Young Women Association sisters had to bring 10 gifts for Pink Sunday to give to our survivors.  Being the crafty person that I am, it's just hard to purchase something at the store when I can create with a lot of LOVE.  Such great therapy!!!  The easels were on sale at Michaels for $10 packaged in 6. Everything else was in my stash.  Was that a bargain or what including my 20% off including sale prices?!  Michael's made my day!

Simply packaged with a chalk wrapped in ribbon.

NCD with Unity Stamps

My Saturday was busy, but not too busy to make three cards for National Cardmaking Day!  I had a recent purchase with Unity Stamps and below are my three creations.  The first card has lots of layers just like the fall season. I'm looking forward to the cool temperatures! The second card is one of many I am making for my Breast Cancer Survivors. The third card reflects support.  I'm so thankful for my support of friends.  Blessings to you my friend!

Prima Doll card & envelope

Hello there!
Wanted to share my Prima Doll Sister Pal Swap idea that will be going on at Scraps of Color.  It's a card with embellished envelope.  This is my first take on the idea so with that said....I will use the same doll for the card and envelope.  I think it would looks better.  Don't you think?  Please share, I'm opened to suggestions.

Focusing on her jewelry

Friday Night Chat Fun

We had so much fun at Scraps of Color for our Friday Night Chat Challenge.  Yours truly was the hostess and the theme was Black and White with a pop of Color.  We used Tuesday Mornings Sketch for the Main Challenge and here's my take on it.  Below are the other two challenges, which they had 30 minutes to create and post.

Challenge 1  Your project should be Black and White only using five different elements: (i.e. die cut, edge punch, fiber, ribbon, lace, bling, flowers, metal, embossing folder, button, eyelet, etc)  Sentiment is optional
 Challenge 2 Your project should be Black and White with a pop of color

Featured at Color Throwdown

How excited was I to be featured as the Guest Star Stamper at Color Throwdown! When I saw the color scheme I thought about water coloring, which I haven't done in a while.  Don't you just love challenges?  They allow me to reach in to products I haven't used in a while or try a different technique.  The stamps used are by Rubber Stamper (image) and Lizzie Anne (sentiment).

Hope you take time and play at Color Throwdown!

Shaker Crazy

Just call me 'Shaker Crazy', but at least I'm using my crafty goodies!!!  I had fun in the craft studio.  My mother requested some thank you notes for those who blessed her during her sisters death.  I realized after making the first batch of six cards that the scripture missed the word  'your' between into and lap.  Don't you hate when that happens?   Well you know I had to correct them right?   The overlay of the butterfly is vellum.     It's a simple card, but I love the design. Embossing powder was used for the sentiment.

Photo Selfie Frames

Graduation Season has come and gone and it's time for trunk parties. TeTe Princess had a request for selfie frames!  
Hali is a graduate of The Central High and on her way to Clark Atlanta University. She is my motivational speaker headed for law school.  The board was painted black and paste was used to add templates for texture. 

Phillip didn't want the girlie look so I had to keep his clean.  I took out my markers to draw musical notes.  My crafty friend Samantha made the tuba using her Silhouette. Phillip is a graduate of Houston High and is on his way to Tennessee State University.  If you ever watch the band at halftime, he'll be playing the tuba in the Aristocrat band. He is my gifted musician.

They make me proud....from babies to college graduates.  The sky is the limit for these two!!!!
