A "she" me!

 This is my second "She" canvas attempt, got a bit more daring and created a mini Me, including my camera and my lucky number 5! Also added my bestie who is represented as the crow, an animal she has a huge connection to!

Loved how my pony tails turned out!

Wally the crow!

"The harder we fall the higher we bounce" this is very representative of Wally and I's life together as friends!

A bit of Bling!

"trip of a life time"

It doesn't show it off well, but the corners are very sparkly!

"She" made her first attempt...

Thought I would try my hand at some "she" art....
A design canvas concept I admire by Christy Tomlinson, if you have never seen her work you should google her. What a talented inspiration Christy is, not unlike another Christy I know!
These canvases are not as easy as the look, there are different techniques involved that I, as a crafty gal, had no idea existed!

We are never to old to learn....

Have you ever tried your hand at mixed media art? If so send me a link so I can check it out...

With love and laughter

So inspired!

Took the weekend off for a few reasons, one had to take my love for a not so pleasant test, two, had a weekend long regional HM conference! I am thrilled to say that all tests turned out fine! (thank God) and I learned so much at our Calgary Regional meeting. Have you heard of Heritage makers? If you haven't than clearly I need to work harder at telling my people all about the great projects, gifts and photo ideas that they have to offer and how easy it all is to get started.... Interested?? rocks You should be, click on the link and have a browse, start by going to the top right corner and creating an account... This will not cost you a think, and although it will collect some info the only person who sees it is me, so no worries about being overloaded with email advertising and such... ok, go have a look, I'll wait!!!

well this is a simple admission of guilt...
Yep, Cheated... I went to scrapbookers paradise in Calgary and with out even thinking I spent money... $35...
how many pages have I done, well, 3 ....
so even if I was justifying my actions I still couldn't account for $10 ....
feeling guilty, had to confess...
now its done!
Not sure what the next step is after admitting you have made a mistake...
My name is Laura S and I am a shopaholic... (among other things, but we can save that for another post!)

a challenge...

My friend Jackie was in the other day and I was asking her about any of her latest scrapbook purchases, she works at a scrapbook store part time so often has the in on things that I like. She mentioned that due to a challenge she was doing with some friends of our, that she hadn't bought anything in a while, I was intrigued . I guess he had heard of it from another client of the store and do to the extremeness of the rules changed it a bit to better suit her skill. Anyway, long story short, I have decided to throw my hat in the ring and give it a go too.
THe rules are easy, NO scrapbook shopping till you finish 20 pages, when ever you finish a page you put $5.00 in a jar, at the end of 20 pages you have $100.00 to spend on scrapbook supplies. Only exception is consumables, like glue, card stock... ect. It is a way to use up what you have, save your money, and really think about what that next purchase will be.
With all of that in mind, here are my first three pages, so nice to have something to motivating me to get scrapbooking again!!
Thanks for the great idea, hope I can handle it!
FOr those wondering, the other groups rules where they had to wait till they had 100 pages done, I agree that this could take a life time with the way we visit more than ever scrapbook, so for now we start at 20pages...
Wanna join the challenge with me?
if so send me a note, and you can be part of our challenge...
Here are my first three pages!

Camp Croppin'

Am finally starting to come down off an awesome scrapbooking high. It was camp cropping this weekend. For those that don't know it, it is an annual event put on by scrapbookers Paradise in Calgary. It is a time to catch up with old friends meet new ones, and of course, scrap book!
I hadn't been to an event with my gals in almost a year so this was much enjoyed...
Here are a few pictures of what I created, sorry about the flash, was too lazy to light things up better!
Have a great night!
with love and Laughter
