October Mixed Media Challenge for Limor's Mixed Media Group on Facebook

Hi Everyone,

I apologize for not keeping my blog up to date.  Things have been extremely busy for me and have not had much of a chance to do a lot of crafting.  I however did manage to make this layout for my best friends nephew who recently passed away.  He was a very unique, funny and amazing talented drag queen actor.  I used one of his pictures that was taken during one of his performances as it really depicted who he really was.  I hope you like it.

I apologize that the pictures did not rotate   Not sure how to do that  Here is a list of the supplies that I used for this project:

One sheet of patterned paper from Magnolia for the background
Journey die cut (from stash)
Prima flowers and spray
Prima skeleton leaf
Prima bird
Karlas001 etsy store's plastic dove birds
Lace trim from my stash
Golden Molding Paste
Lindy's Stamp Gang Mica Powder in Tiffany's Blue for the molding paste
Wheat Sprays from Karlas001
American Craft Thicker's letters for Kevin's name
Crafters Workshop Princess and Flourish Stencil for the textured background
Cameo from Karlas001
Tim Holtz metal crown
Bling from Dollarama
White paper doilies
Sage Green Ink from Stampin Up

I hope you like this as much as I do.  Please check out Limor's group on facebook at:  Limor1278 Mixed Media Art Group as well as her blog at:  Also a link to the sponsor for this challenge this month is Lindy's Stamp Gang and their website link is as follows:  Lindy's Stamp Gang.

IAR "Love Is In The Air" Contest

Hello Everyone,

I am posting my project that I made for the Iamroses "Love Is In The Air" Contest.  I used 4 products from Iamroses and incorporated some lace, bling, pearl trim, dimensional sticker and some ribbon with hearts.  I love that this has become a miniature candy holder with it's own little scoop that you can put your mini heart candies or anything else.  Great little Valentine gift for all the people you love!!!!  Too cute!

The following are the items I used from Iamroses.  Click on the link and it will direct you to the items on their website.

Hot Pink Paper Roses - R3-4
Mixed Pink Cherry Blossoms - S3-1
Small Pink 2-Tone Flowers - S10-6
White Mini Roses - R2-15

I also used some beautiful products from Karlas001's Etsy store.

January YouTube Layout Hop

Well it is that time of month again.  This month our theme for our scrapbook layout was "pick your own theme".  Let me tell you, I was overjoyed.  I wanted to continue working on my Breast Cancer Journey album and had the perfect pictures for it.  I hope you enjoy this layout and get some inspiration from it!  I will also post a link of the YouTube video below the pictures.

I used pink sheer box pleated ribbon and some clear iridescent flower trim around the picture.  I also used some Wild Orchid Craft Flowers and paper doily surrounding the layout.  I added a dragonfly pendant to the top right of the picture and then used a Prima Sweet Fairy journal tag along with the letter "K" bling from Michael's.  I added the words using American Craft thickers alphabets.  The layout was made using the breast cancer paper by Slice.  Super gorgeous paper.

On the second page of the layout I used the same papers from Slice.  I took one of the Prima Sweet Fairy journal tags and cut it in half to use on both pictures.  I used some recollections bling,  Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, a Petaloo flower, button from a dear SS and a mybutterflykisses flower from Karlas001's etsy store. These photos were taken at my boudoir/survivor photo shoot done by Vibe Photography.

Here is the link to the YouTube video on this layout.
