Commit2Paper April 2009 layouts

So proud of myself, getting done early and not bad layouts if I do say so myself. And I do LOL! I've already cleaned up my mess from this session (sorry no pics) and found a project that I thought I had finished but NOOOOO so now I can work on it. Just feeling so creative this spring!

Ok, all together, some I retook the pics, added a bit more to "My Clock" and used the Daisy D's rollon rubons rak'd from Kylie on the "I'm Ready" layout. Yes I still use those, but have discovered they do much better on smooth paper instead of textured Bazzill!!!

SO, give Amy a call and get this kit!

I'm ready...

for my close up Mr. DeMille.... ok so I'm dating myself.

Played some more with the chipboard pieces, the button cb, painted with a bit of ribbon from stash. The paint colors were a bit bright so rubbed some TH Antique Linen which toned them down just right. The two pp were too similar. Lined the circle with a blue Galaxy Marker to make it stand out.

Ellis Pond

Yep, dug out another punch. Everyone seemed to like the photo mat punch on "Spring Cleaning" so thought I'd try it again.

Used the ribbon to make flower stems (think I lifted that idea from Genie), added some Primas along with a few of the Artsylicious brads.

I pass this little pond every day and it always makes me smile (wish I had left room for that rubon).

Spring Cleaning

Caught Sheldon getting the yard & Garden ready for spring planting.

The thickers came with an earlier kit, hit them with a Galaxy Marker, Souffle pen around the pics, rubons from the kit and a few goodies from my stash. Enjoy!

My clock!

Well it's not done yet but couldn't wait any longer to show you! Used the clock face from the Biggest Board that came with this months kit, two of the pp, DH cut a piece of masonite to mount it on. Picked up a clock kit from Joann's ($7.99 which I think you can get cheaper somewhere else or use a coupon). Some ribbon from stash and used a gold leaf pen to trim around the clock face.

The space to the left will have a few of my fav pics probably of DH and me. I'll have to think on that so that's why I didn't want to wait to share!

Garden City

Garden City is the nickname for Augusta. I always wondered why till we started exploring during April, all the azaleas go nuts! And this is my favorite street, brick pavers, avenues with something blooming all the time.

Oh and the Thickers are fabric! Didn't realize that till I took them out of the package, didn't even know they made them. Took a marker (AC of course) and highlighted the texture in the fabric for the title. Dug out some journaling spots from my stash to match and of course covered the cb butterfly which was in the Big Board embellie, love that.

Guilty cat!!

I knew someone had been getting up on the table and just knew it was Boo! It couldn't be my sweet Yoda, he knows better. Hmmmph. Sheldon knew I wouldn't believe it. Sorry for the fuzzy pics but he was in a hurry to get the shot before the "evidence" jumped down.

Every Day Things

We just love movies. Course now we have NetFlix we don't go as often so it's more of a treat when we do. These are just a few of the tickets collected over the year, have more to dig up and might just start doing one per year with more comments. But these papers are so great for the every day pleasures in life.

Commit2Paper March 09 - First up!

Who doesn't like Fancy Pants!!! The Daily Grind and it is named perfectly, just the papers for the every day kinda things we should scrap to remember. Things that make you smile or giggle.

Look at the goodies:
And something that always makes me giggle, Boo. I don't think it is in this cat to lay on something flat or comfortable. Weirdest cat I've ever been owned by.

Yes thank you Jen, I found it. At least a little.... (and I finally found a use for those ugly letter brads)
