These banners were done for our new Pastor's ordination in July. Finally got a picture of them. Design is all mine. Banner background is suede cloth, lettering, wind and dove are satin. Sheer nylon shadow and crazy polyester (but the right color) flames.

I was commissioned to do this baby/memory quilt. It included her maternity top with his sonogram picture as well as a variety of his clothes up to one year. It was made to fit his youth bed. I've done several t-shirt/memory quilts but this is the first from baby clothes.

I had been intrigued by the background fabric of these banners when they caught my eye in the store (in my favorite area, clearance). It is an embossed felt...not the fuzzy, limp stuff of years ago. So I bought it... and it sat for 3 years until this spring.
Letters are white satin and s shimmery sheer with gold lame for butterflies and crown. The crown of thorns are actually ivy branches...I'm blessed not to have to deal with the thorns. Christ took care of that! and so much more...

Once again, Practical Scrappers challenged me to use an item I never had before and I was able to use 3 transparency pieces - 2 hearts and then the fun little dragonfly which is 3d, stamped and glittered. I'm also submitting this to the Chirper Challenger "Sweet".
Cricut - dragonfly- Doodlecharm Script - Lyrical letters (My favorite font cartridge)
Dragonfly stamp - Michaels Ink - Color Box, fresh green
Ribbon - Offray
Brads - Making Memories
Paper - Miss Elizabeth (plain cardstock) Vellum - Beverly's

A fun layout to do and it brought back fond memories.
Die cuts - Cricut "Life is a Beach" - gulls and lettering
Various stamp pads from Close to my Heart used for shading and distressing.
Boulders are raised with Miss Elizabeth's mounting dots.
This layout came from a story my teacher friend told me about finding a "house centipede" and her daughter's desire to feed it...what happened to be a black widow. Guess who won! (and yes, her 8 year old caught the "spider" and put it in the jar...). All this just took place Wednesday and I wanted to surprise her with the page, which now I can use too!
The centipede is a caterpillar off Cricut "Walk in my Garden" but needed many more legs so cut
5 crabs on "Life is a Beach", split them in half and there's a centipede.
Jar is from "Stretch you imagination"
Spider and Web from "Paper Doll Dress Up"
Lettering is "Lyrical Lettering"

A precious memory.
I'm kinda liking felt now... the added texture and depth. And I love the subjects :-)
Script is Cricut - Jasmine
Felt and jewels from Joannes. Paper hmmmmmmm
I had felt but have never used it as it always seemed too "heavy" to use on layouts. After looking at the design team's ideas, I was inspired...again. I love these challenges.
The felt is from Joannes. Paper is from Paper Pizzazz. Flowers K & Company.
Ribbon is from Michaels.
Misc. pearls, stars, gllitter from my stash

Didn't know that until it was pointed out to me how many of them I use in layouts. And I couldn't pick between the grandkids for the "Shape Challenge" on Practical Scrappers so you see them both in one of their favorite activities - anything to do with water. Most supplies are Miss Elizabeths.

"Plans fail for lack of cousel, but with many advisers, they succeed." Proverbs 15.22
I have been trying to scrap these pictures since I took them about a year and a half ago and nothing worked. But I was specifically inspired by the swirls in the "Doodles" challenge and even more by the vellum swirls that Kim did on"Beautiful". I wanted to show his breath on the dandelion. Had the basic layout last night and saw the Challenge of the Week this morning (PracticalScrappers.blogspot.com) so spent (waaayyyy to much) time with embellishments inspired by Katherine's layered butterfly, Kerri's jewels and sparkles in the snow and Kristina's stamping on vellum. I really pleased with the results. Thanks for your help!

A double challenge here...learning to upload a picture and entering a "contest" at Practical Scrappers. Their challenge was to use vellum so I added a little fall color to my vellum, loaded up the cricut and cut many falling leaves and bringing back one of my favorite memories with Timmy.

So I got this set up. Next challenge some pix or a new background...we'll see just what the Lord has in mind for me and this site.
