Altered Items for Scrappy Jo's

I just finished up my monthly altered items for the Scrappy Jo Design Team.
Here are two of the projects that I finished. The bird house features 64 paper shingles that measure 3/4 square. I glazed them and let them dry to give the rustic look you see!

The bottom items are an altered tape dispenser and a tablet that holds large and small post-it notes in one place. All to beautify the work space!

I'm so excited

I just found out that I have been selected as the Altered Item Specialist for Scrappy Jo's Scrapbook Supplies. Hope you will all come visit!

I also just finished this project! An elegant altered french fry box and no it did not come from a fast food restaurant. Don't you just love the papers? They are from the Black Market Paper Society, a new company.

Celebrating America and the Cowboy

As many of you know my husband Jim owns a Western clothing store in Portland Oregon called Yee Haw. And yes that is my son in the ads. We think he is kind of funny and photogenic!
In this time of year that we set aside to honor our Country, it seems only fitting to me to have created a red, white, and blue cowboy layout. We love the free-spirit of the cowboy and we all love to ride horses. Although I am the newest at it.
Last year for Fathers Day we had these photos taken for Jim. I finally had the right inspiration to scrap them.
Have a wonderful week and remember to be thankful for the freedoms we enjoy.

Is It July So Soon?

How can it already be July? Preston is out of school for summer.
We have been to several Seattle Mariner's games, although we can't seem to get them to win for us.
This weekend we found a fabulous, new to us as a family, place to go. The Museum of Flight in Seattle. What a fun place for kids and adults!
I've been doing more scrapping lately. There was a fun crop over at Serendipity that I did. Now Scrappy Jo's is having a wonderful July event. I have so much fun doing these!

I posted a new crop LO I did. Love this picture of Preston. This was simple with Thicker felt lettering. I did the journaling in word art and used a wavy setting to echo the "watery" theme.
