LOTD

It's a Wonderful Wednesday!!  Love that I hoarded the Illustrated Faith (collab w/ Bella Blvd) collection pieces ...my original intention was to do another journaling bible but as my projects continue to pile up, I decided to use some of it on some layouts!

















"Focus on the good in your life" (Phil 4:8)



















Crafting for Our Cause!

May of 2014, Brenda was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. Trigeminal Neuralgia is one of the most painful conditions known to the medical field. She has had the surgery to repair teflon padding in between her nerves but it has since worn off and with no medicinal relief to be had, she sought out additional treatments in this area with none to be had. She has since turned to TN expert, Dr. Mark Linskey at the University of California Irvine Medical Center. He reviewed her case with a fine tooth comb and has also determined that she has compressions on not just one nerve as previously diagnosed by Johns Hopkins, but four nerves. After discussions with her other doctors and her Hopkins team, she (together with her family) have made the decision to travel to California this summer to allow Dr. Linskey to operate again and to treat the new diagnosis of geniculate neuralgia.

It's a scrapping first!

I usually scrap a layout and then am done with it once I pot it...but I looked and looked at the last post (4/5/17) and thought wth ??   Is that it??  And so, since yesterday was a Scrapping Sunday, I pulled it out and had to junk it up!  A first!  Sorry the picture is blurry; am not sure what's going on with the camera (or is the user lol?)  Loved using up some more of that My Minds Eye that I was hoarding :)

LOTD

**LOTD** using some of my My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 papers and Mystery journal cards
Ultra clean layout, I had created it for the Challenge YOUrself challenge but of course, with the sick boy and running him around (someone tell me why it took 45 to wait for 3 prescriptions at Walgreens?)-I ran out of time and missed the deadline!  It's all good; I'm still finding a bit of ME time this week to play with paper...  That makes LO # 7/25 for the WhoGAS Facebook challenge!



It's a Wonderful Wednesday!

Got some additional layouts on this gorgeous April day...2 more for the WhoGAS Facebook group April challenge to use your stash and commit to crafting!  That's 6/25 so far!  Will be doing more once I put my Counterfeit kit together this evening.

MY GIRL BRENDA :)
People always ask me what products I use and I'll be honest, I usually don't know because I always mix manufacturers products!  My eyes see the colors and prints as coordinating not matching and so I usually pack my kits like that and everything gets jumbled!

It's a Terrific Tuesday!

Terrific because the sun is shining, the sick boy finally got some meds to put him on the path to wellness  and he went back to school after missing 5 days!   Laundry getting caught up, admin duties almost caught up...I'm on fiyah!!!

I'm hosting a fundraiser crop for a dear sick friend (who also does scrapbooking and photography)and I'm pretty sure that I've posted in 85% of all my local groups, but just in case I haven't, I'm gonna post info here too...For any fellow out of town scrapbookers or planner chicks or mixed media friends who want to contribute something for a door prize, please contact me via email!

Scrappng Sunday!

Oh my, has it really been three weeks since I posted for Scrapping Sunday?? Tsk, tsk, tsk... I ave been scrapping here and there but just not consistently. BUT, I will be hosting a fundraiser crop for a dear friend of mine who is very ill, and as the host, you have to giveaway prizes!  Well, that forced me to go down to the scrap studio, deconstruct all of my kits, re-do some of them, and to start organizing embellishments to see what I have duplicates of.  I also made the decision that from now on, whenever I buy a collection or a kit, I MUST kill it all at one time and be done with it!

So, today was a day full of multitasking (including hanging out with bff2 this morning) but since the boy child is still sick, chores went by the wayside, we ate dinner early and so I've gotten in some scrappy time all while watching Fantastic Beasts AGAIN!  Four layouts done JFM!  I had originally planned on scrapping all of the Paper Issues facebook challenges before March 31st, BUT got sidetracked and so I just decided to go ahead and scrap them anyway and then continue on to the April challenges.




**so this is 4/25 for Patricia's  Facebook WhoGAS Back to Basics Challenge

Scrapping Sunday-CKCB

Layouts 1 & 2 using my March 2017 Counterfeit Kit!
I still haven't figured out my Silhouette with the new desktop, so I pulled out this awesome cutout placemat I had from Jillibean Soup as my starting point!  For the design, I went to Scrap Our Stash and used their Tic Tac Toe Challenge; I used the right diagonal row with washi tape (mint green washi under my layers at bottom), gold (my HELLO is gold chipboard) and mini alphas (gold ones at bottom.)

March Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge
and the second one was created for the April Lilli challenge on their blog and in their Facebook group using this awesome sketch by the super talented Victoria Marie:

Most supplies are from my March CKCB kit but I added in some PinkFresh too!  Two layouts done, on my way to look at the Counterfeit challenges to see what else I can create today!

March Counterfeit Kit reveal!

I skipped February for all kinds of crazy reasons-both in putting a kit together and in scrapping...but, I jumped in on this scrapping Sunday since I got relieved of cooking duties and decided to put a kit together.

This month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit was inspired by all of the February kits from Hip Kit Club!  Their main kit consisted mostly of Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes' Chasing Dreams and their Oasis papers...loved this one to counterfeit!   I was mainly inspired by:
  • BOLD FLORALS
  • GRAPHIC STYLE PAPERS
  • DOTS, DOTS AND MORE DOTS (OR ARE THEY CIRCLES??)
  • STRIPES
  • MAGGIE HOLMES
  • BUTTERFLIES

I knew I had a Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper stockpile so I tried to use as much of it as possible.  I also added some of the American Crafts Hazelwood collection that I've been hoarding.
For the add-on kit, I focused on the tags, gold and the Maggie Holmes of it all...gotta use up these sticker sheets that have dregs hanging on to them!

I will probably add some stencils, paints, washi and modeling paste for some mixed media addition in there as per their Color Add On kit (I'm too lazy to do it now)...sorry for the horrible pics, but it's late and dark down here :)   So there you have my March kit-I hope to get at least 6 layouts done with it if not more this month!

Scrapping Sunday LOTD

Just using up Simple Stories stash and misc items in the scrap basket!  Coming back in a few with my March Counterfeit Kit since I'm on a 30 day spending freeze!  Wish me luck!
