Sketch for December over at My Minds Eye.
This is my take on the sketch.
These are my wedding photo's.
My personal challenge was not to distress.....very very hard.....but I could not leave it I sanded the edges...
I can live with that!.I
mounted the photo's on chip board then sanded.

The title. "Found Love" made with a die from Tim Holtz- Sizzix. Cut x6 stacked and glued......
yes it is a pain, but worth it!
Circles from chip board, cut with the help of  a  Sizzix die. The design paper sanded and gold embroidery thread around the edges
The leaves are also finished with gold thread.
I used the  MME stamps from the collection LOST and FOUND 2
The easy sew came in handy to finish this strip, also sanded the edges.
A close up of the bow.....very very happy with this. Take the time to visit Becky's bits she gives a great titurail on bows.
Thanks for dropping by. Have a scrappy day and Scrappy hugs Susan.

Being A Woman......

" Being a woman brings forth life.....being a grandmother embraces a wonder!"

This canvas, colors, inspired by the color room and journaling, once upon a sketch.  Both challenges expired a few weeks ago. 
Noah, my step daughters boy, has grown so fast. He is now over a year old...and he looks so different now. Where has the time gone? I think this is a treasure of a photo and worth putting on the wall. 

Isn't he so want to see him now!

Stamped, then painted with Glimmer mist. I love the effect this gives....a subtle hint of shimmer in the light...great for on the wall in a sunny room.

 Butterfly's done in the same way, with the same colors. The die cut used is from Cherry Lynn. Mini size

 I did a melting pot work shop at Scrapdelight. We all had so much fun, as per usual. Janine is always so relaxed and layed back......we got to make these wings with a mold. Scrap delight still has them in stock if you are interested. A great you can see......
The blue wings are from MF painted with blue Glimmer mist.....yes you see it...or NOT see it. No stickles this time...wanted to keep it down. 
No bling this time! Just mist!

Close up of hand made flowers painted with the Glimmer mist, once again.

Thank you for taking the time to take a peek at my work...have a scrappy day/night...
Scrappy hugs....Susan
