Quality Time

Every year we make New Year's Resolutions. One of mine this year is to spend more "quality time" with my daughters. It seems since they have grown we dont get to spend much time together I need to make it count more. Here is a lo I did for a steampunk challenge over at This is my second steampunk lo ever and I really like how it turned out. Grungy!
Here are some close-ups:

Cherish Every Moment...

This lo was inspired by another scrapper PennyLane @ you! I loved the 4 photos and the two circles with a break in the middle. Instead of using paper in the center, I used paper on the sides and distressed it in the middle. I also stamped a brick wall on the background. Then using my favorite masks from prima I inked on the blue paper. For the circles I used 2 doilies and I made a tissue flower in white (tutorial soon). The butterfly is the last of the set, so I wanted to use it up. The birdcage, the white rose and white pearls are from my leftovers from SCRAP THAT! Also I used some quilling paper for the bottom swirls.
These are photos of Roxy when she went to Prom and instead of individual lo's this 4 photo inspiration was perfect!
Here are a few close-ups:

Have you heard?

Scrap That! Canada's Best Kit Club is looking for 3 Guest Designers to join our team!

Scrap That! kits are unlike any others in Canada. Every month, we create an innovative kit full of carefully selected high-end double sided papers, specialty papers, premium embellishments and specialty items. We also include a collectable signature product, a scrapbook layout sketch and one technique product including instructions and tips on how to use it.

Each candidate will design for a two month term between April and September 2011. At the end of the term we will have a contest and let our members and subscribers vote on which of the three Guest Designers will remain for the rest of 2011!

Each Guest Designer Receives:
1. FREE PRODUCT - Two kits plus the embellishment add-on kit, valued at well over $50 per month
2. FAME & GLORY - Your photo and bio on our blog and our online social community!

What we ask of you:
- You must have a blog and update it regularly each week including posts about projects you’ve used from the kit, design tips etc. We ask that you also have links to our site on your blog and other sites where allowable.
- 4 projects created with the kit and 90% of each project must contain kit contents. 3 of these projects must be layouts and the third a project of choice (lo, card, altered item).
- Post your 4 kit designs in our gallery as well as to one other large gallery site, either or Postings on these sites must include *Scrap That! Kit* in the title line.
- Projects must be well photographed, cropped and ready to be uploaded on our site (and your blog) the 26th of each month.
- Weekly message board and gallery participation during the two month term is required. This is quite possibly the most important thing! We have started a great online community and our members are of the utmost importance to us, so this is huge.
