About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Gimme some love, peace and PAPER!!!!

DCWV has some awesome paper stacks.
On the company blog (DCWV Diary) they sponsor a 
Stack-a-holic sketch challenge once a month.
Below is the sketch for October.

Remember, you have to use their paper.

It doesn't have to be exact as the picture represents, but a 
CLOSE representation.

They also choose randomly for free paper stacks for anyone that enters.   Awesomeness!!!!!

This is what I came up with.......
The tie dye paper and the green glittered polka dot is from
  All Dolled Up Stack.
The blue geometric design paper is from The Sorbet Stack.
and the silver is from The Textures and Finishes Stack
I used some punches to make the flowers, some stick on jewels, 
Tim Holtz chipboard, Cricut to cut letters, silver buttons and Dymo label maker.

It was super easy to follow and I love how it turned out.

The pic is from May of this year when Harlee and I had a girls day out and we visited the local cemetery in town.
  I couldn't miss a great photo op since she was wearing her best
bohemian outfit.  
She loves dressing up and especially in character. 

Hmmmm....wonder where she got that from.....

Until later sketch artists........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!

Test.....test..... is this thing on????

I'm going to start a new series of videos in the next couple of days.

There may be some newbies out there that aren't quite sure what the words....
 Crop-a-dile, Big Shot, or YourStory mean.

Well,  you've come to the right place. 

I will choose one of the many great crafting products to work with that day and try to go over some of the features and
show you how it works/or is used and I'll give my honest opinion.

I'll also show you any things that I have found that isn't the norm practice for that product. Tricks or other uses.

See ya when I see ya!!!

Until later,  testers..........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
