I know, I know its been a long time since I posted!! I am just a slacker when it comes to this blogger thing! i love to read everyones elses craft blog but my own, blah! this challenge is going to be the 1st of two things for me. One, this is the first contest I have EVER entered, yes ever! and this is going to be me jump off point to get into my blog! i am going to REALLY get serious about it now! I want everyone to see what I am up to in my little crafting corner of the world and I am gonna just do it! So now that I have gotten that out of my system on to my project.
I had a few wonderful ladies actually find me on youtube. After they had subbed to my channel I went over to their channels to check them out and to give them a thanks. Well while I was there on there channel I saw this really cool ning site that they have and an awesome contest going on to be a guest designer! Anyone that knows me and my work is probably saying mini albums well this is right up her alley... So I decided to do my best at winning this spot! The video said to create a 6x6 wall hanging any style any colors anything goes. I have been very under the weather and almost passed up doing it but I just had to at least try. This is my 6x6 acrylic scalloped square wall hanging, that is actually made from a premade mini album page. I backed the acrylic piece with some designer paper that I had inked from My Minds Eye. I fussy cut the bird and birdcage out of another sheet of paper from the same collection. I used some pieces of Foam to raise the bird and bircage up and attached to the acrylic. I used a favorite pic of my husbands of our baby girl, CaleighAnn, framing her in a sizzix die cut out of script paper from the collection and corrugated cardboard to give it some chunkiness. I attached the frame under the bird and birdcage. Then I used some prima flowers and some recollections roses. Added some recollections and Prima bling, marshmallow Glimmer Mist, some ribbon from my stash to hang and I think it looks pretty darn good LOL! Let me know what you think!! I hope I win wish me luck!
I am a stay at home mother of 2 wonderful kids. I am with the love of my life and my soul mate. I love all kinds of crafts, from paper crafts to painting and sewing. I guess I just love to create! I created this blog as a place to share both my trials as being a mommy and to share what I create! Please do not claim any of my designs as your own, although I will be honored if you want to scraplift me just please do not profit from me (at least not without sharing and permission lol!)
