I finally "conquered" the layout that was giving me fits
It doesn't look anything like it did in the beginning.

Here is the finished piece (hopefully this link works).

I'm trying to decide if it needs anything else.

Tammy, I KNOW your friend will appreciate the cards! So very sweet of you.

Kim, I think your lo is lovely and I don't think you need to add anything to it at all.

Linda, sounds like you are making great progress on your album! I can't wait to see it

Yesterday I bought a stamp and last night I got out the colored pencils and colored it in. No particular reason, I just felt like coloring. I have also been working on a batch of cards for a good friend of mine, and trying to work on a wedding layout too. The wedding page is almost done but I'm trying to decide where to put the bling and that's been stumping me tonight.

Tomorrow we are going to the lake with a friend from here, and the weather is supposed to be nice and cool.

Last weekend I took some classes from Dyan Reaveley (the creator of Dylusions sprays) and in 2 weeks I'm taking some classes from Paula Cheney (she works with Tim Holtz) and I'm so excited! I love taking classes

Hi Hon, You do not need any reason to color in an image. Coloring an image is one of my fav things to do. I adore my colored pencils I have had them for 15 years. I loved coloring & art stuff when I was a kid too.
I know your friend will love those cards you are making. Your stuff is always fabulous I know later you might like where the bling is on your wedding page. I hope so.
I hope you have a blast with your friend at the lake.
I can see why you are excited about your classes. They sound like fun.

I am trying to figure out what you mean LOl Do you mean you posted a card here & you forgot your friend was here & you didn't put a greeting in the card..is that ok?
It is fine if you never put a greeting inside I do that often.

We had a nice time visiting our dd. We met her and her boyfriend for a late lunch and then we hit a few thrift stores.

It sounds like everyone had time to work on projects today. I can't wait to see them.

I have a question that I know has been asked before, but I couldn't find the answer when I looked.

How do get a layout picture to show up in a post? I was hoping I had done it right the other day but I guess I didn't.

It does feel great. This was the first time I put 2 patterened papers together on a lo. I have always admired how others mix different patterns but for me it always felt weird. Now I will challenge myself to do it more often.

I was even "brave" and cut a piece of paper when I wasn't sure if what I was doing was going to work. That probably sounds strange but for me it was a huge step. It has always freaked me out that I would ruin the paper if it didn't turn out. I finally decided it's only paper.

Hey Kim it is very easy to embedd a pic in here.
choose the image from your gallery or someone elses gallery..near the top right are some buttons..one is pinterest...the first button says link..click that..up pops a box..there 2 types of codes to choose from..choose the one for bulletin board & message boards...then right near there is the address for that page in a little box....save that addy.. Then you choose reply to the thread..paste that addy in the reply..that is all.

Don't feel bad about feeling weird about doing something new or different.You are so right...I feel the same way. I have a hard time matching prints unless they are from the same line. It is hard to cut..I understand being brave abut cutting into our precious paper.

Donna and Kim, your layouts are lovely. I don't think yours needs anything else Kim, and that photo is sooo cute! Oh and it took me years (honest) to get over my feelings of not wanting to cut up my papers. You are not alone...
Donna, I love your title of the first layout, combined with the beautiful photos and paper it has such a happy feel to it, and the vintage one is beautiful. I love that masking feature!
Linda, we have spent the week-end adding more stuff that needs storing to our shed, but my wonderful hubby has created a walk space to my scrap desk, as he doesn't want me not to be able to scrap for a month...he's the best....

It was funny that you said hope I enjoy it. It melted my heart. I love the papers, the way you arranged everything, you did a great job on masking. I love vintage children images ( I have many boards of them)I love pink roses but peach hold a close 2nd and peachy pink too. I loved the embellies too. :)I left you some love.
What did you use on your stencils?
I used to do cards & some pages with it but it was many years ago & it was inks or paints..
I did buy 2 new templates here last yr. one was bricks & one was prima wood. I forgot I bought them

Linda, I've been learning a lot about gesso lately. You can get a recipe for homemade gesso from google. I am also wanting to mist. Painting the paper with gesso before misting helps a lot. Anyway, trying new things is fun.

Andrea, hope your vacation was great!

Linda and Donna I love using mediums in my scrapping. I do not use gesso in stencils, Nothing wrong with it. I just like modeling paste. The modeling paste takes color better. I mix inks, paints, micas and all kinds of stuff in my paste. I also use gel medium and embossing paste. Have fun playing.

I also prefer modeling paste but I think it's because I like it to be pretty thick and textured and I haven't been able to do that as well with gesso.

Hi guys, I have been getting lots more headaches the last few months. I am sure it is from old glasses. I had a pair from a prescription a few yrs ago. They broke so I have been using one from 8 yrs ago. I know that can do that. I do have an eye exam tomorrow thankfully. Since our income has been dropping for yrs..dave is a heart patient with lots of other med stuff. he always has to go the dr. we have ins but we still have to pay a lot so I quit going to the drs because it is urgent that he goes. since he turned 65 all of his med stuff is paid for so I have been able to go to the drs thankfully. Then my headaches will stop.
I hope that I am able to read all your posts.

Hey Linda, glad you are able to get to the doctors. Hope your headaches will soon be a thing of the past with new glasses....my daughter gets headaches if she doesn't wear hers, and another friend was getting headaches because of needing new glasses....

Good morning everyone. I hope you all have a good Thursday. No scrapping happening so far for me this week. Maybe that will change this weekend.

Linda, I hope your visit to the eye doctor resolves your headache. They are never fun.

hi guys, I am still having lots of headaches still. I did go for the exam but we don't get my glasses till tomorrow. I do hope that I will be able to read your posts.today. I am so excited. we went to Jos which was next door. I got a bunch of new stickers that go with the album. I told her it would be late before her birthday & she does not mind at all. Most of the stuff I was using was heart stuff that I loved but I realized later that i do want to use them specific stuff for some of it. animal stickers instead of hearts for animal lover. I had your calls & texts are the highlight of my day but used heart stickers but they had a pack that had a phone open with a text in it. It was PINK it has other text stuff.
they had nurse aid (she loves to help her elderly patients at the nursing home) & nursing (she is going to school soon. ) they had you inspire me.. you are one of a kind (I was going to put thaT)
I got 16 packs of stickers. I have felt too sick to work on it. It is making me sad.
writing this is making my head hurt more. I am so happy though.

Andrea, you are very welcome! I am so happy to see you using that beautiful butterfly stamp. It wasn't long ago when I bought that stamp here, and now it's discontinued. Wow.

Linda and Donna I love using mediums in my scrapping. I do not use gesso in stencils, Nothing wrong with it. I just like modeling paste. The modeling paste takes color better. I mix inks, paints, micas and all kinds of stuff in my paste. I also use gel medium and embossing paste. Have fun playing.




Hi hon, thanks for this info. :).I will reread it when I am going to work on that project

I also prefer modeling paste but I think it's because I like it to be pretty thick and textured and I haven't been able to do that as well with gesso.




thanks Vae,:) I will reread this when I am going to work on the project

I spent the morning re doing my re inker pallet. I had one but needed two. I wanted to be able to have the seasonal in there too. so i washed the one out and re did the color chart. Now I have ll the colors ready for coloring my next stamp.

Now I am working on a lo. I am trying to use some stuff I have not used in awhile.



I am glad that you got your reinker done. Isn't it funny when we look in our stash & see stuff that we forgot we bought lol

linda- hope you feel better soon! I have been having little headaches lately also. Sucks.
I am going to make some los using black and white photos (copies for my sons album) they are not that good of photos but I need to have something to work on you know?





I am so sorry that you have been having them too Mindy
I say scrap photos that are bad...lol The memory is still there even if the pic is blurry. if you look in my gallery many of mine have bad pics but I would rather scrap the memory anyway.
I used to want perfect pics to scrap but when I started doing my heritage (my childhood esp) most of the pics are terrible. (blurry, chopped heads, faded, all kinds of stuff) when I started to scrap them..I really had a few perfect pics. I realized that it was more important to scrap them anyway.

Hey Linda, glad you are able to get to the doctors. Hope your headaches will soon be a thing of the past with new glasses....my daughter gets headaches if she doesn't wear hers, and another friend was getting headaches because of needing new glasses....




Thanks Christi I really appreciate it

Good morning everyone. I hope you all have a good Thursday. No scrapping happening so far for me this week. Maybe that will change this weekend.

Linda, I hope your visit to the eye doctor resolves your headache. They are never fun.



I do hope that you are able to work on something this weekend. Thanks for the good wishes :)z

well I got lucky. K & Co has these displays in jos that have little pull out bins. maybe 6 ft wide in these tons of 6x4 in sticker sheets. many are 1 but some are 2 but they were closing out the 2 so they were 1 too so it was 16. bucks they have lots of stuff on the pages some have a few things most are 3 d. That is why I was so excited. lol

I really hope the new glasses help with your headaches.
