Paper Trunk

This is my favorite Halloween page I have ever done! I am not much for the themed holiday papers, so I was happy to find the funky, retro style papers by Paper Trunk! You've gotta check out the whole line called Rockabilly, along with the "Flair" buttons. I have one of them in my blog header even! Paper Trunk is an up and coming scrap design label, be sure to check their website for fresh and fun papers and elements.

Oh, this is my son dressed as John Dillinger. Yes we are aware that Dillinger didn't have a French moustache, but it just looked so good with Cade's outfit!

As always, thanks for taking a gander at my Rockabilly boy :)

Wedding theme over at Paper Issues! Go check it out and link up your own special day masterpiece! :)

This is my sister, mother and myself at my sister's wedding a few years back.  I love how the background paper (Glitz) goes with the Something blue paper by Crate.  I also used Echo Park and Parisian Anthology by House of Three.  All Create paper embellies with some BG pearls thrown in.

Thanks for peekin'!  Come back soon! :)

Sassafras June Challenge

Hi you guys!  Today's post centers around the June Challenge over at Sassafras Lass.  Here is the sketch by one of my paper idols, Michelle -


And here is my take on the sketch ~

Isn't it crazy how some layouts just flow together, and others take painstaking hours?  This was the former, thank goodness!
I used Sass Lass papers (my personal FAVE!)- from Anthem, Wall of Fame and from Mix and Mend, Alterations and Bungle Jungle's Tree Tops.  There is a paper whimsie card thrown in with a couple misted doilies, and a hand sewn tag by Amy Tangerine.  The pins are from For The Luv of Art and the candy buttons from Pebbles.  For good measure I threw in a few stitches with Orange floss by Sew Easy.

Hope you like it!
Thanks for taking a gander  :)

Hey!  How's it going?  Welcome to my blog those of you coming from Punky Scraps Blog Hop - and all others of course!  I know you have been sorting thru many blogs, and there has been quite a bit to read so, I am going to keep this brief and get down to the meat!

The following LO is from the sketch by Camilla, I absolutely loved working with it!  If you look at my other pages, you will see that I have used this format before a few times.  So this is the sketch....

and here is my interpretation....

Thank you very much for stopping by!  Please take a gander at my other work, return to Punky Scraps or go on to the next fabulous artist, Jess and her happy scrappy blog!
