My second journal entry is inspired by the beautiful henna designs that certain cultures tattoo on the hands of brides. 🙂

Do you art journal? I have recently started an art journal using an old book, come join my ongoing art journal challenge at The Paper Passion for the rest of the year!! It’s a great way to play with colors, inks, pens, paints, scrap supplies…..anything and everything!!!!


Love this time of year!! ❤ Here are a couple packages I wrapped for my girls. Grab yourself  the printable PDF file for the tags over on The Paper Passion forum!!

Since I have a bit of time before my classes start again I thought I would try and put this years xmas pics into an album…only thing is, I didn’t take a lot of pics haha!! I am using a BoBunny “Rejoice” chipboard album, papers and various other christmassy odds and ends. That scrumptious flower was from The Paper Passion’s last kit On Angels Wings“, only a few left so grab one, it’s a beautiful kit!! Stay tuned for the finished beauty!! 🙂


Had a good time creating this canvas…lots of layers and details!!! The banner across the top left was made with Fiskars banner punch.The birds were freehand cut. Thought it was fitting to post this one as it matches my wordpress theme that I just chose lol.


Sometimes I just need to remind myself that “He” walks with me so here is a fun little 5×7 piece of cardboard turned wall art/reminder.

Simply cover with paper and distress. Add psalm using left over alphas…cut  2 1/2 inch circles into spirals and roll into flowers…add trim as you see fit….voila’!

Can be hung on fridge with magnets or add some ribbon to hang on your wall….either would be super cute! 🙂

Would love to see your take on this idea….post a link to “your” creation so I can drool over it…lol



Well my first major project in 3 months or so is this canvas!! Lots of Prima yummies used, along with paint and glimmer mist, lettering is grunge-board sprayed with the mist too. The fabulous tulle is from Scrapbooking Fanatics as are all the Prima goodies…oh and the mist too lol…. Click image for larger view. 🙂
