Roses and Pears

Beccy's Place is the sponsor of the Paper A La Mode Thanksgiving Challenge at the Outlawz, and I was lucky enough to be provided this gorgeous Roses and Pears image.  I colored it brown since I love brown pears and they seem to fit Thanksgiving better.



I loved playing with this image - it is soooooo pretty!  I printed it if off a few times so I could add in some layers.  I also added in some little sprigs I made with the Martha Stewart Branch punch and I pulled apart a pretty little sparkly thin flower out of my stash and tucked the pieces in the back for some glitter. I colored  thus up with some Copics, some SU! Alcohol Markers, some colored pencils, and some Tim Holtz Distress inks and sponges.  My sentiment is from DRS Designs and is called Thanksgiving Blessings.  My bg is a free vintage image from Knick of Time (love that place - wow!), but I found the link to it on this unbelievably cool Pinterest Board put together by Becca Feeken (it has thousands of links to great vintage printables). 

Many hugz!!!

  7. This is just stunning with that bouquet of flowers, fruits and greens! I love the vintage background and noticed the 4 digit phone number! It made me laugh, because I still remember our old phone number growing up! It was 3 digits with a letter! LOL

  16. Okay, but this stunning creation is not a card, is it, Nancy? It's a centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table, right? It is going to be gorgeous there and so much prettier than a tissue-telescoping turkey - although there's nothing wrong with those! We've had ours for a couple of decades now! Happy Thanksgiving!

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 Splitcoaststampers.com 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
