C.Y.D.I.? Denim and Lace Challenge

Today is the first day of the new Can You Digi It? Challenge involving Denim and Lace.

To make this card, I used the Corset image from Dana's Digital Cafe and printed it out on SU! Whisper White and The Paper Studio Blue Jean designer paper. After paper piecing the image, I put on a little Ranger Distress Stickles in Rock Candy because who doesn't like a little sparkle when they are wearing something as expensive as a Corset.

I mounted the image on another layer of Whisper White and put that on a Spellbinders fancy frame die cut in black (Hobby Lobby) because it made the card fancier and this Corset called for fancy! I printed out my sentiment; it says,"The Little Things Make a Difference," - at least that is what the Google Translater says. My bg paper is from the Genuine pad from Authentique (also available in the C.Y.D.I.? store), and it is a house favorite per Michelle (the store owner)!

The blue jean flower was made with some old jeans I had laying around; I cut them with a Tim Holtz distressed flower die using my Big Shot. I rolled them around in my palm to distress the three layers, and then I put them together with a brad I think came from SU! (thanks to Kelly for that tip on cutting fabric with a die and distressing it to make it look like you have had it forever).

Here is a quick link to all the store products I used:

You should join the challenge - who doesn't love denim and lace! There are prizes! Below is the collage that Michelle put together to inspire us.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
