and then I remembered that I made this a few days ago:

not even two years old and my granddaughter already loves playing dress-up

I don't get to post my scrapbooking layouts here much,
 so I just figured I would slip this one in.

Eggs-cellence!

So, when I did this piece, I decided to take my own advice
and will ask that you read the very first post on my page.

If we don't ask,
we don't get.
And I know I have good friends in the art community.
So I am taking a risk.

Thanks for coming by!

Royalty

DISCLAIMER:     I love the queen.  Really.  I'm a monarchist.
(Except for the amount we spend on her and her minions)
But, when I saw this image in Googleland, 
I couldn't help myself.

Not much more to say.

Be sure to check out what I am sure will be
much more refined interpretations of
ROYALTY  at

She would NOT be amused.


And thanks for your visit.

And for the record, I grew up in the 50's and
yes, my mother DID always put on her
lipstick/"face" before she did
ANYTHING.

We've come a long way, Baby!

On another note,
 I have decided to share with you what is happening in my life
and will ask that you read the very first post on my page.

If we don't ask,
we don't get.

Gecko Galz In Wonderland

HI!
Have you made your sample for
this month's customer challenge yet at
If not, why not?  
There are so many great products you can choose from at the

Here are a few examples of what you can create:




Would you like to know how to make one of these?
Pretty much everything I do these days is digital
(well, not dirty dishes or cleaning toilets, or laundry, or...you get the picture)

So for the last one, you need a 
photo-editing program of some kind.
I use Photoshop Elements 13.
Now my instructions are going to seem 
backwards if you have never
done any digital pieces.
Be patient with me. :-)
Start with one of the Go Ask Alice collage sheets.
Crop the above image from it.
Then get out one of the Chalkboard Sentiments
collage sheets and crop the above image from that.
Apply a bevel style to the sentiment and
place over top of the Alice sheet.
Add text with the word "But".
I used the Medusa Font.
Create a new layer and add the words "she will".
Same font.
Position them where you want them.
Add the arrow
The one I used was from a blog hop quite some time ago,
it's by the Digichick.
Place it where you want it.
Duplicate the arrow a few times and
place them strategically where you want them.
Create a new layer, 4"High x 6" Wide.
Fill it with black.
Place Alice over that, kind of in the corner.
Open the black paper from the
Mad Tea Party paper pak.
Place your image over that paper, kind of in the corner.  
Add a white stroke to the top layer and a drop shadow.
Open the blue paper from the same paper pak.
Move your image over top of that,
kind of in the corner.
Do you see how we are just
repeating the process here?
Easy, right?
Add a red stroke to the top layer.
Over another paper from the same paper pak.
Place your image over that,
kind of in the corner.
Add a black stroke over that.
Go back to your Chalkboard Sentiment 
image that you cropped out and crop out
just the word "Believe" from that.
Using the magnetic lasso tool,
extract the actual banner and
place over your original piece
(that now has all those layers).
Add a white stroke to the banner.
Create one more new layer,
12"x12"-
this is the LAST ONE!
Fill it with black.
Move the whole shebang to
that last layer.
Add a bevel style to the top layer.
And YOU'RE DONE!!
I know, I know, especially
to the uninitiated, this seems like
a lot of steps.
But they are all just repeats of the first step,
for the most part.
Even a beginner can do this one!
(to tell you the truth,
it took me longer to type the directions out
than it did to make the piece!)

Now you have no excuse to not play along with our
April Customer Challenge, right?
It can be digital or paper, pens and glue.
You decide.
And remember you can get these fun 
Alice images and papers from the

We look forward to seeing your creations!
Thanks for coming by!


Electra out, cus I am dizzy.

Alice's Tea Party

It's a new month and a new challenge at 
And it's an extra fun theme...
Alice's Tea Party


I made a little sample for the theme,
hopefully, it gets you thinking:

Do you think it's dreamy?  lol
I used a Gecko Galz paper sheet
and one of the Gecko Galz Collage Sheets.

You can find all sorts of "Alice in Wonderland" goodies at

Are you going to create something for 
the customer challenge this month?
The only rule is that you must use one 
product from Gecko Galz

and then link up here

(You'll find all sorts of amazing
samples from the Gecko Galz design team there too, 
as well as a free digital stamp for you
every day!)

Have fun with it!
And thanks so much for coming by!
