What an interesting site to wake up--the ground covered in that white stuff! I am so not ready for it. Left my house to tak Jaedon to pre-school and we had about an inch to an inch and half on the ground but roads weren't covered...but on the way home from pre-school (approx 1 hour later) there was about 3 inches on the ground and roads were coved...talk about a complete white out!! I slid right through an intersection with my 4 wheel drive on and I was going 10 miles an hour. I just kept praying please don't let anyone come, please don't let anyone come! I made it home and this was the view!
So, Not really been doing too many LO's been into cards thanks to dear Aymee from SAS with her Christmas Card Challenge! They are fun and allow me to be creative quickly rather than putting so much thought into my LO. Sometimes I hate how much I think about the LO's! I keep putting more and more detail into them and it's driving me a bit mad! LOL! Anway here are two that I did this week! One was for a challenge on Just Scrappin' and the other was for a 1 hour LO contest on Creative Scrappers! Happy Looking!
This first LO was the October Challenge on Just Scrappin. We had to" make the paper work for you". Only use paper as embellishments. So here what I did was I used the leaf paper as background, cut out the edging of the leaves with my craft knife to make photo holders, and I inked them up. The monkey paper I just cut them out, and I popped them up with foam squares to give the look that youwere looking into the rain forest and peeling back the leaves to see the lemurs. I know deep for a zoo LO!! But, that was the vision and I'm sticking to it!
The next pic is from the 1 hour LO contest That I just finished tonight at Creative Scrappers. So, the first pic is of the sketch that we had to follow which was a fairly easy sketch to finish in 1 hour. The second pic was my creation based on the sketch. I took this pic of Delaney two weeks ago on October 14th. It was a beautiful fall day and we went for a walk down to Little Flipper Lake which is about a half a mile. The leaves were falling and she was just dancing and twirling around hile they were falling. I just happened to catch this shot and I absolutley love it!
So, as for what I used. The leaf paper and the base paper are both from DCWV Fall stack and I used some burgundy, gold, and orange card stock, red stickles on the leaves, and my red studio g ink pad. The journaling says, "What a fantastic fall day we had walking in the trees. How I loved the smile on your face while you were dancing with the leaves".
