Lookout World Here I Come!

My latest LO is for the Scrappehuset challenge! The challenge was to create using things not made just for srapping! To use some unique items. My daughter Brenah is starting her first year of high school, and she inspired me to do this LO! I used cake paper, or paper doilies behind her picture! It's kind of hard to recognize here, because I inked it to death! But it's normally plain white and round! I also used leftover toile fabric scraps to create an extra layer of petals behind the metal, felt, paper flower! I added a glass heart charm from an old necklace of mine, a Norwegian coin, antique buttons, and vintace lace! As for the normal scrapping supplies, I used some of the new chipboard I purchased in Malaysia from Scrappingglitz.com! Crackle paint, prima flowers and lots more!!!! The Journaling reads: Dearest Brenah, This is one of my favorite pictures of you! We were at the park and you had this lovely smile on your face! Confident and ready to take on the world! Thanks for looking!

Breaking Dawn book release!

Just wanted to share this pic of me and my daughter Brenah, at the local bookstore release party! We both love to read and this series "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyer has been tons of fun! It's a great young adult story about love and friendship! (And vampires and werewolves!!) The party began at 10:00 pm and lasted until midnight, which is when they released the newest book!!! I hung out with my daughter and several hundred over zealous teenagers!!!! It was a costume party, hence Brenah's lovely scars! She went as the character Leah, who is a Native American Indian that was attacked by a werewolf! We played trivia, had our fortunes told, made a toilet paper wedding dress, and overall had a wonderful time!!! By the way, she won 1st place in the costume contest!!! Any other Twilight fans out there???? Thanks for looking!!!

Scrapping in Kuala Lumpur..

Yes, I had to try to and find a scrapping store here in KL! And I did!!! It's called http://www.scrappingglitz.com/ ! It is family owned and and run by the sweetest person! I called the number given on the site and spoke with Nadrah, she runs the store out of her home and was very happy to have us. She told me to get a taxi, head for the National Zoo and have the taxi driver call her on our mobile to get the rest of the directions! What a fun adventure we had all in the name of scrapping! We made it to her home in about 30 minutes. She offered us coffee and Jerry, (DH) played with her son while I shopped! She had a lovley selection of paper, chipboard and handcut paper flourishes!!! I got to see her lovely scraproom, she does beautiful work, by the way! What a nice treat to meet a fellow scrapper so far from home! Thank you Nadrah for having us! If you are ever in Houston, let me know!!!! Here is a pic from our vist! Check out her blog, she posted a pic of our vist too!

Look Mom!

My newest LO! #2 in a series, I was lucky enough to get several good pics of Evan playing in the rain, so I thought why not do my first series??:):) I was excited to try sewing directly onto
transparency with metallic thread! I dreamed about doing that one night and couldn't get it out of my head! :):) I wanted the thread to appear like it is floating.... Anyway, this was fun, it was difficult trying to make myself STOP adding stuff!!! Does anyone else have this problem?:):) I used more of the lovely crackle paint, grungeboard, and fancy pants stamps. The fabric music notes was a piece left over from one of my quits. The felt butterflys and chandelier beads are Heidi Swapp. Thank you so much for looking!
