Started as an Ali sketch and then kinda did a takeoff of it's own

LOL So here it is, it follows parts of a sketch and then I did my own thing somewhere along the way. I hand cut the bracket paper from a template I made from some other papers and mixed some Graphic 45 with some K& co. nice mix I thought. :)

So Tim asked "How do you Distress?"

I know you are not asking me Tim who because if you know me- then you know which Tim I am referring to LOL (in case you don't know and have just popped into my blog from outer space (LOL) I am talking about the King of ink and all things Distressed...Tim Holtz)
So my newest distressing involves making my flowers I think the inking is what really gives them a realistic look. Yes it's a ton of work but it relaxes me. So here is a LO I did up for Tim to show how I distress. A very special Thanks!! goes out to Scrapping Outback for the Chipboard!! :)
There is hidden journaling under the yellow daisy on the left that goes under the picture that reads
"OXO Love from Mom (and Dad too)
It's hard to be a momma sometimes
(it's hard for Daddy's too) we want you to stay small and hold you in our arms, but you grow so fast! I
look forward to the fun stuff we can do together when you are bigger...if you must grow up so fast just grow big and healthy!"

Treasured Memories.

Another special Pic of me and my little gal...this time walking towards the camera. I just love that little foot kicking up in the air :) .There is a Winnie the Pooh quote that reads
"If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you."
-- Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
and under the dragon fly there is hidden journaling for DD that reads-
Perhaps one day off in the distant future you are at school and you feel lonely, or perhaps you are at a sleepover and you are home sick. Maybe it is many years in the future and you off traveling, I want you to recall this quote, and remember how much you are loved.
The Winnie the Pooh is off a pair of jeans she out grew....Loved those pants!

I love this pic!

In this LO...because I just adore my little gal! I love when she clutches my hand, moments like this are priceless! Journaling reads- The very best place on this earth to be is....Together!

Did a couple more LOs

I was hoping to flood my blog but it seems that mr. Mojo isn't cooperating with that idea...or perhaps it's a little girl I know conspiring with him LOL!
At any rate here's a couple I just got done...
First is one of my Little gal with her best pal at the time...Buddy Bear. At first this seemed like a silly toy to me but I soon realized how precious it was as she could clutch him when she was tiny! This was kinda marrying too styles my love for shabby distressed LOs and bright and colorful I like how it turned out.

This next one was inspired by my Aussie Buddy Trudi....I just hope I did justice to her inspiration! It's an all white (or in this case cream almost) and one color- pink LO. I was really happy with the crinkly gathered ribbon...all I did was to do a running stitch down the middle of the ribbon then I applied a double stick tape down to the LO and then put the gathered ribbon down. I liked it! :) TFL!!

So sorry...I just realized that pic of the Second LO is kinda blurry will replace it soon as I get a chance!

Two new Layouts!

I really would love to flood my blog with pictures...I am so far behind. I did a check and I have 158 days worth of photos to scrap and I have scrapped 35 days....WAY BEHIND!
So yesterday I started scrapping in the hopes to get at least one LO a day done....yesterday I did these two.
First one here is DD sporting her adorable overalls...shame that they don't get to wear these cute outfits longer

This next one is DD when she was just a few days old...she looks so tiny now...look at her in comparison to my hand! She used to be able to sleep sideways in that chair but that didn't last long...she outgrew it pretty quick! This Layout is very much my style before DD came along and I felt I should move into bright cutesy papers...I love a vintage feel and it felt great to do a LO in this style again...I should do them more often! Oh I meant to mention that Gabrielle inspired the ribbon weave!
