Have you seen The Color Room?

I added a blinkie on the top right of this blog that you simply must click on.

It will take you to a great, truly incredible group of artist and inspiration. I have been struggling with a "look" for the wedding album I will be doing for my son and new daughter-in-love. And this site, this wonderful, lush site was the magic I was looking for.

Be sure and stop in, join in one of the challenges if you are braver than me. and be amazed by the sheer artistry of these ladies.

Have fun!

The year is going so's the start to my holiday crafts!

Well, most everyone is having fun, planning for Halloween and creating exciting, fun works of heart. Not me, I skipped right over Halloween, even though I love the fun, and am starting to make my Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts.

Here are a few pictures of the Vintage Holiday Tags I made for Lori's swap for "thescrapbeach" ning site. If you are not already a member, be sure to stop in and see all the fun going on. Lori is an incredibly talented member and has lots of great tutorials. You'll love her youtube channel, which is: klipngirl. Her swap "on the beach" is listed under Swaps Galore and is the Vintage Christmas Tag Swap.

One of my favorite things about youtube and the ning sites I love, are the challenges and inspiration I soak in. The latest one I am looking forward to is an idea of Sue on her yt channel: sue7777000. Her idea is for everyone to make a mini, with the cover being a "window" looking into a toy store or Santa's workshop. Sounds cute, and I can't wait to get started!

Well, I hope you and yours have a fun, safe Halloween and if you find you just have toooooo much chocolate, just give me a ring and I'll be glad to take it off your hands. After all, can anyone really scrap without chocolate? Have fun and please, keep sharing your creativity with us all!

Enjoying the journey

Well it has been too long since I last posted. The weather has turned cooler, the days are magnificent, absolutely glorious and I have been playing with my stash of fall papers to stir up the creative juices.

I have a new mini album I am playing with. A hybrid style perfect for holding loads of pictures, mementos, calendars and all important "lists".
These are just the start...I can't wait to get started embellishing. Oh the joy! The paper line I highlighted in this mini was Tim Coffey's Tuscan Sunflower. Had to have it, stayed up hours, scouring the internet to find it and am sooooo glad I did. It is beautiful!

Well enough rambling. Please take a moment, enjoy the fall and feel the stir of emotions building, anticipating the upcoming family holidays. Take alook at my newest mini and let me know what you think.

Have fun scrapping!
