Son Shine - IMHO

IMHO, I have a wonderful son. Not perfect, but perfectly wonderful. This last week was his school jog-a-thon, where he ran/walked 3.7 miles. I did this LO of him using a sketch from Sketches: Creatively Yours. I used sketch #20, which I really love.
These photos were from our beach vacation. I love not only how happy he looks, but that jump of joy! I am blessed to be a mom.
The papers for this LO are American Craft and SEI, Ink: SEI, Ribbon: Unknown, Buttons and felt are from Chatterbox.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that each of you has a wonderful, joyfilled, and creative week!

It is Fall!

I am so excited, fall is my absolute favorite season! I love the leaves changing colors and the cool crisp mornings. It also reminds me that Halloween is near. Our cat, Onyx, would love to be a scary black cat, but she was blessed by being black and white. In fact, her inner black cat is rarely seen. She is such a sweet cat, very affectionate. And rather than being scary, she tends to be the scare-e. She is a little bit jumpy! (She actually reminds me a little bit of me....). I did two layouts of her. "Cat in the Bag" is based on a sketch available at Serendipity Scrapbooks by Susan S. Susan is the most amazing scrapbooker around. She has such creative techniques and now she is doing sketches too! AWESOME news!!!!!
Appropriately I used a lot of ink on these, I love the Color Box fluid chalk in charcoal. It really adds some scary distress to these pages!
