 Hi there! Do you have any fun weekend plans? Early tomorrow morning around 6:00 am, Angie and I are headed to the one day event called Junk in the Trunk! It's a HUGE indoors flea market style event. We are hoping to find a few treasures and trinkets :)Tonight I have a layout to share featuring a photo of Angie:
I surrounded her with die cut fall foliage and roses:
 I just love this photo of Angie that was taken by a friend:
 To create the background, I added lots of texture using a Tim Holtz stencil along with texture paste, various distress stains and Tim Holtz stamps. The layer immediately behind the photo, was cut using a Sizzix Tim Holtz die and grungeboard then coated with Distress Paint and Distress embossing powder:
 I embellished with die cut grungepaper fall foliage and die cut roses that were made using Sizzix Tim Holtz dies:
and colored using various Distress Stains and added a layer of crackle Paint to the leaves:
The title is from a Tim Holtz stamp set:
For theme / color inspiration, I joined along with the current A Vintage Journey which is: The Colours of Autumn and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend! 
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! So happy to be playing along with the September Prima Build A Page sketch challenge:
I created a layout featuring a photo of my dear daughter Angie:
surrounding her with a variety of pretty Prima products:
To create the background, I combined pretty papers from the Prima Something Blue collection:
I added texture using a Prima stencil and embellished with various Prima trinkets, flowers and die cuts:

The title was stamped using my favorite Prima typeset font stamp set:
The color inspiration came from the current Scrap Around The World challenge mood board ~ (the binoculars, the set of books and the heart pendant):
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great rest of the week!

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Don't forget, it's Stamptember over at Simon Says Stamp and I really hope you'll join us for a month long stamp party full of inspiration and celebrations. It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week we are challenging you to Rock the Techniques!
I was inspired to create a tag featuring the heat embossed resist technique:
I love the contrast effect that may be achieved by heat embossing stamped images using white embossing powder. With the Autumn season right around the corner, I opted to create a fall themed tag featuring Leaves.
The background was created using a variety of Distress Inks and the sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamps Thanks set. After created the background, I embellished with Fall Leaves and a doily:
