About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children. My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)

Yes, I have been away from my blog for a couple of weeks...I just needed a "regroup" time.  And, during that time I decided that I was not happy with my schedule so, I have changed it up.  I will not be doing the Pick 3 every Monday...now, the last day of the month I will do my Picks of the Month..  No set number, just however many I want to share.  I just realized that I was not crafting as much as I wanted...and that was kinda the point of the blog...to keep me motivated, so...change is good :)

Now to share a card I made for my girlfriend.  She is facing some challenges in her life right now and this image was just perfect...
Here's the details:
Image - "FIN-tastic" by Saturated Canary; I colored the image with my pencils then added Stickles in baby blue to the water, Distressed Stickles in burlap to her hair, and Crystal Effects to her eyes and the shark's fin.
Papers - all from my scrap box
Embellishments:  sheer ribbon, twine, bits of sea glass, shells, starfish and a small sand dollar   I also added some swirls with Stickles in Cinnamon.

Thanks for stopping by...and I LOVE comments.  Enjoy your day!
