Cece and Daddy love

This is my last entry in the PTI Anniversary challenge to use a photo in a project.  This is for Randy and his girl Cece.  He is going to be away for about a month and she misses him horribly when he is gone.  I am sure she will be keeping this for a while before giving this to her Dad.

It's a good life!

Do over

 I can't believe that this is the end of the PTI anniversary week already.  This was the redo challenge from PTI.  Below is the card I was making over.  I had just got my zig markers and was playing around.  After watching some videos I got the above result.  MUCH better.  I used a bunch more water and that made a difference.  I also planned my colors and placement much better.

repeating shapes

Oh my do I love a challenge.  The 10th Anniversary challenge was to create a card with repeating shapes.  I dug around in my stash and found this set.  This set that had never seen ink!!!  I adore what I was able to create and can't wait to bust some more creations out.

It's a good life!

Flowers

I have no idea why, but I LOVE challenges.  It just gets me thinking about things differently and looking at my stash in ways I hadn't before.  Today Nicole had some amazing peaks and the 10th Anniversary Challenge was all about flowers.

Well, I was feeling a bit modern and funky today, so I busted out this set and decided to use up some of the nail polish paper scraps.  I like the end result and think it gave me a fresh and funky card design.

It's a good life!

Matching envelope

Well, this was an interesting challenge.  You see, I am the crafter who makes cards and never sends them out.  I mean I make them, write in them address them and then never drive them to the mail box.  Totally crazy!  The 10th anniversary PTI challenge was to make a matching card and get that card out in the mail.

I made this card for one of the February challenges.  It is for my boss who got married recently.  Did it go in the mail, nope.  So I have the card & envelope now maid.  It will be in the mail tomorrow!

It's a good life!

MIM nail polish

Not sure how I feel about this technique yet.  We did it outside because of the ventilation issues I read about.  It was in the 40s, but I think it was still too cold to get the full effect.  I do like a few of the panels we ended up with.  This was for the PTI MIM challenge.

It's a good life!

Cece's first card video

Oh my, this girl is amazing!!!  Love her tip at 1:44.  She melts my stamping heart.  Can you tell we watch a lot videos LOL!!!!  She really is in love with the paper smooches line.
 Her finished project and matching envelope.  We used PIT white card stock and envelope.  She wanted to add this to the 10 year challenge over at PTI for matching card and envelope.  She is sending this to her teacher Mrs. Muscato.
This is the photo bombing dog.  She did her own layout and was so proud of this dog leaping over the other dogs for the bone.  This one came from Woofers & Tweeters.  She is a sucker for the animal stamps.  

Love that we create together and that she is so comfortable in front of the camera talking about what she does.  

It's a good life!
