SCRAPBOOK PAGES: Into The Woods

This is the two-page layout I had my friends do for our monthly scrapbook night.  It can be adapted for any season:  Use fall colors and add leaves or acorns in place of the ornaments, or use bright colors for a summer camping trip layout - use your imagination!

WEDDING CARDS

As I was sorting through my boxes of cards I realized that I don't have any congratulatory wedding cards.  I got the ideas for the wedding cake card from the Splitcoast Stampers gallery and the wedding dress card from the Paper Crafts magazine's Go-To Sketches.

50's POODLE SKIRT

My friend asked me to help make her daughter's Halloween costume as she and her little sister wanted to be 50's girls.  Here is the finished poodle skirt I made using a McCall's "At The Hop" costume pattern.  The leash is silver glitter glue and the poodle is an iron-on applique.

ARTWORK

I've had a couple requests to post some of my paintings since some people don't have a facebook account to view them there.  Here are some examples.  I mostly use acrylic paint on canvas or canvas paper.  Average size is 24" x 36".  You can see more if you go to the January 2009 link in my blog archive on the left side of this page.
