Something Dark This Way Cometh!!!

Check out these clouds that were looming above us about an hour ago. I have always had a fascination with clouds and when I saw these I ran upstairs and grabbed my camera. Aren't they awesome? The weird thing is that it was eerily calm outside. You would think that there would be wind swirling around us but there wasn't. Oh, and it didn't rain a drop. We sure could have used the rain but it missed us.

Finally Finished...Junkie Design Team June Layout

I am finally finished with this month's Junkie Design Team assignment. It's been a rough couple weeks with vacation, the flu, a toothache, a root canal and work all rolled up in one. But I survived.

On this second project of two I got to do a 12 x 12 layout using some great papers from My Minds Eye Breaking Free collection and one of Heidi Swapp's Invisible Papers.

The Invisible Paper was spritzed generously with Glimmer Mist and speed dried with an embossing tool. The pom-pom trim and rick rack were natural colored to begin with, but were also spritzed with Glimmer Mist to match the color scheme. The flowers and surf boards were cut from the MME patterned papers. Diamond Glaze was painted onto the surf boards to give them a lacquered look and then sprinkled lightly with some ultra fine glitter for a little pizazz. Stickles were used to embellish the flowers and pop dots gave them a dimensional look.

I had a blast putting this layout together. I really love playing with the glimmer mist and getting my hands a little dirty. I thorougly enjoyed the challenges this month and am looking forward to the next assignment.

Junkie Design Team Canvas Album is Complete.

The Junkie Design Team Canvas Album has been completed . Tonight was the 4th of July Social at the Junkie and I turned in my part of the collaborative effort: the cover. Beth and I inserted the pages that the other Design Team Members completed and it is to die for!!! I love how it all came together. Each and every page reflects the personality and charm of each of the designers. I am so proud to be a part of this design team. The talent in this group is amazing and I love working with all my fellow design team members each and every month. Take a look at the amazing talent in this group!

Great News!!!

One of the Junkie Design Team projects I am working on (and yes I will post pics soon) is a part of a really cool Canvas Album from the Donna Downey/Prima canvas lines. Each of the Junkie Design Team members got to do a part of the album and the really cool part about it is that one of us is going to get to keep the album!!! When it is all completed the Design Team is going to draw names to see who the lucky winner will be! The album features the Making Memory new Travel line and it is awesome. I can't wait to see it all finished and put together. Someone is going to be one lucky duck to receive this!!! Good Luck to all my fellow Design Team Members and thanks Beth for a wonderful idea! I will keep you posted and PROMISE to post pics of my part soon.

Back From Vacation!

We had a wonderful trip to San Antonio and then on to El Paso. In San Antonio we visited the Alamo, the River Walk and Sea World. The kids had a blast. On Tuesday we drove to El Paso for Mickey's Dad's memorial service. There we also took a day trip to White Sands National Monument in Alamogordo, New Mexico, and we visited family and friends. I had not been home in seven years and alot had changed. The day after we arrived in El Paso, Wyatt got sick with the Type A flu and we had to spend two days in the hotel room. We tried not to let it put a damper on the trip. Thankfully he was feeling well enough to go to his Grandpa's memorial and got to enjoy most of the trip. It was good to be back home after not having been there in so long. I had forgotten the cool evening breezes and the delicious Mexican Food! Yum Yum. We had a wonderful visit and we enjoyed seeing everyone. Time went by so fast and we didn't get to spend as much time with everyone as we would have liked, but there is always next time.
