Quote (again!)

Well, how cool is this?
This week the theme at both 
so I get to do two quotes,
in two different mediums.
The woman is by Xquisart and the birds, as if
everyone doesn't already know,
are Tim Holtz'.
The background was a fit of Gelli plate madness.

I had fun though!

Thanks for soming by!

For the life of my, I don't know what the jars are full of;
Peaches?  Pickled Eggs?

The theme this week at
I am anticipating most of the artists will
create something lovely, full of heart and hearth
and good feelings.
I however, did a self-portrait of my home.
It IS lovely and full of heart and hearth
(if you include my fireplace)
and good, in fact, great feelings.
but it is kind of full.
Do you have any idea how long this puppy 
took me to put together?!?!?

Here are the credits:

I believe I can Fly!

is the current challenge over at the wonderful
and so of course,
I had to Try It.
I used a journal page I did using some Gecko Galz digital stamps and images,
and put it on a Tim Holtz canvas.
Added a butterfly on the canvas with some Dreamweaver Embossing paste. 
I don't remember the maker of the butterfly stencil, sorry. 
A little bit of colour with some purple Starburst
glimmer spray by Lindy's StampGang.
Some flowers, butterflies and bling from my stash
finished it off.

Love the inspiration I get at 

You should check it out.

Thanks for visiting me today.

Weekend Reflection

Thanks for coming by!
Have a funny weekend!

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Shhh, let's Get Wordless!

Gecko Galz Get Busy!

It's almost July (gasp) and
I am just now showing you my Gecko Galz 
samples for the month of June!

But that's OK, there has been a whole month of gorgeousness
to inspire you!

The theme this month
(as you can see on my sidebar) is
Man O Man.

My first sample fits the theme because the rabbit
trapped in the timepiece is saying 
"Man O Man, Get Me Out Of Here!"

The fit of the second is evident, I believe.

 And for this one, I used a
digital stamp of the hourse, from the Gentlemen's Club Digital Stamp Set.

For this next one, I used paper from the Gyspy Market Collection.
I cropped the woman from the Stay Young and Beautiful Collage Sheet
Then, I erased what I did not want on her.
I added a little wordart by Meaghan;s Creations, and placed the 
whole kit and kaboodle over top of an unknown blue paper
from my stash.
I finished it off with a little brush work, both with paint and with glitter.  
She strikes me as a woman who would like a little glitter.

All of the products I used in these can be found at the
and there is a free gift this month with each purchase!

You know, I'm sure that you get a free digistamp from each
DT member's blog, don't you?
Here is mine-just right click on it and save to your computer.
 Here is what I made with it to get you started.
Digistamps can be printed out and coloured, or
use them digitally with your photo-editing program and
colour them in on the computer as you watch
Downton Abbey reruns on the tellie.

In my sample I did it digitally with a brush.

You still have time to enter the 
Man O Man Customer /Challenge
I hope you do,

If I haven't been by your blog, please forgive me,

Woo Hoo!  She's awesome.
Two little kids under 4 years old, husband away working in the coal mine,
She lost her father and sister, 
and she still graduated. 
I couldn't be prouder!

But they have gone home now, and I found time to sit down and make this for

That's right!
The Belles have invited us to create

I like to fussy-cut when I am watching TV.
Anyhoo, enough about me.

Ice Cream

When I saw that the challenge at 
I knew what I wanted to do.
Old fashioned digital scrapbook LO of my favourite
photo of my daughter when she was little,
enjoying an ice cream cone.
Is the look on her face not Pure Joy?
The kit was called Exuberance and I'm pretty sure I got it from Scrapgirls way back when I
started digital scrapbooking.

This was fun.  Thanks for the challenge!

Here is mine:

This just kind of evolved.
I loved the art journal page by
Kate Crane on the Paper Artsy blog
and stamped these houses, intending to use them on a page, but,
you know how that goes.
The houses are a Penny Lane stamp.
I made the "hotel" with a mold and UTEE.
That precious sign was a gift from my friend Sonya Nelson in the U.S.of A.

I surely did have fun though!
OK, you've seen mine,
