FF #36

Where has the time gone?? I haven't blogged in awhile, since I've been crazy busy! We bought a travel trailer and my parents bought an RV, so we've been camping a lot here lately. I just love going out and seeing new places.....and the kids seem to enjoy it too (except when they want to hang out with their friends....LOL!!!)

Here is a page I did for The Shoe blog. It was a photo inspiration of this photo:

I decided to use the "princess" part of it and used pics of my daughters and our friends kids from our WDW trip (April 2007). We had breakfast with the Princesses at Epcot and it was so cool and we had a blast. Below I've listed the items used for this project.


CS & PP - CTMH (Key to My Heart); Flowers - CTMH White Daisy blooms (painted); Punch - Martha Stewart Doily Lace Trim; Paint - Craft Smart (from Michaels) in Ivory & Aqua; Shimmer - Shimmerz Paints in Babys Breath; Eyelets - Unknown; Bling - Kaiser Craft Pearls in Champagne & Teal; Grunge Paper - Tim Holtz; Alphas - AC Thickers Glass Slipper & Marcella by K; Pen - Gelwriter; Tools: Crimper - Unknown; Sizzix Big Shot, Tim Holtz Alterations Die "Ornamental", Cropadile; Adhesives - Zots, Glossy Accents, Adtech Dot Runner, EK Success 3-D Dots.

Fashionista Friday - Mother's Day Theme

This week over at The Shoe our theme is Mother's Day....of course! It is coming up this Sunday, May 9th and what a great way to celebrate by creating a lovely LO or card for your Mom!

This LO I made is of my mom and I in 1974 and just her in 2004 (I've blacked out her face per her request.) This picture of the LO does not do it justice, it is really quite pretty in person. I am a lot like my mom: we look alike, we got gray hair early, we laugh alike, we have the same sense of humor, we married men who are just alike, we don't like our pictures taken, we both had 2 girls, etc....I could go on and on!

It took me awhile to go through all the albums of pics she had at her house to find the perfect ones, and let me tell you, there are not alot of pics of my mom or of her and I together (hence the baby pic of me!) She is my world, and I don't know what I would do without her!

I've titled this LO "You are so beautiful to me" and unfortunately I've lost my list of supplies that I used for it.

Thanks for stopping by and checking it out! I hope you all have a terrific Mother's Day!
