Good Morning,

First I would like to say THANK YOU to all my followers and for the wonderful comments you leave me. It is the comments and emails that give me inspiration.

I wanted to try something different and it was fun and messy. Not exactly what I wanted the end result to be so I will keep on practicing and trying new things. The image "MELODY" is from the Odds & Ends Sampler by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. I love her name. It suits her so well.Melody is colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles. The background is a Tim Holtz Faded Texture Folder on Kraft Paper. The musical notes are embossed and then I used different Distress Inks and blended. I am not sure what I was expecting, but it turned out looking kinda cool. If you click on the pic you can enlarge it and see the different dimensions. The rockstar is paper from the Rock Star paper pad and I highlighted the letters with H2O's. It has been forever since I use them. The kraft border was made using the Memory Box Meridian Border Die. Of course, the bow was made with my Bow Easy and the flowers, charm, and metal arrows are from my stash.

Again, I would like to thank all of my followers and wish all of you a Merry Christmas. !!

Good Morning,

It's Humpday! YAY!!!! Sure hope all of you are having a wonderful week and a good start for the holiday season. This is my favorite time of the year. My oldest daughter and family will be here the week before Christmas and leave on the 23rd and then on Christmas morning I will fly to my other daughter's for a week. I have 6 grandchildren and I looooooove being with them. Wished they weren't in other states, but both of my son in laws are in the military. One is a helicopter pilot and the other is a Captain - good place for them to be now since the economy isn't the best. Enough rambling.

On to happier things. This adorable image is PEACE from the ODDS AND ENDS SAMPLER by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. I just love the name and her face is so beautiful.

PEACE is stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.

Hair: E59-37-33-31-50 Chocolate, Light Umber
