Crafty Weekend

Hello Monday. You came too fast, but I was able to get a lot of scrapping in this weekend, so I'm happy about that. I almost got caught up in the Sketchbook 4 class with Kelly Purkey. She's had a bunch of great sketches that have really stretched my creativity.

Today Much Joy

Archiver's was having a sale on mists and masks, so I picked up the plano mask from Studio Calico and a couple new Mr. Huey colors. I used the plano mask on this page, and love how it turned out.

These pictures make me smile. I especially love the last one, where A is sneaking a look at her brother.

Hello Nine

I had fun using a bunch of scraps and stamping and mist splatters on this page, including some festive confetti. I'm liking all the white space too. It's definitely a sketch I'd like to come back to again.

My nephew plays the violin, so we made him a violin cake. Well, more accurately, my sister made him a violin cake. It turned out so cool. We used a guitar shaped cake pan, and altered it to make it look like a violin. We used black licorice as the strings and black frosting for the S holes and chin rest. We used a little piece of cake for the bridge.

I'll be sharing more pages from the class this week. This weekend was a good reminder that scrapbooking isn't just a hobby for's good for my soul. I feel lighter. I feel better. I need to make more room for it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great pages! I love your misting. Always makes me itch to get mine out. I was so sad to see the Archivers sale on mists and masks because I am nowhere near an Archivers anymore. :( I asked the store in Nashville for Mr. Huey's from the day they opened and was told they were "coming". Too bad they arrived after I moved. Glad you got there for the sale though.
