Mixed Media Page

Hello my crafty friends and happy Monday to all of you!!   So here is my first attempt at a mixed media page for my art journal that I started back in September.  I only have limited supplies with me as i am in Celina, Ohio visiting my husband at his new job, and he would only allow so much in the car!! hahaha!!

Here is a close up of the journaling I found in a DCWV stack!  I really liked it so it was my foundation for the layout!

This is the lower side of the page.

This is a closer look at the top of the page!  I used alot of glimmer mist sprays and dabbed and dried them until I got a look that I liked.  Then I just started to tear paper and found some green sparklers to add to the top and bottom!

I hope that you enjoyed my "masterpiece", it's hard to show how much it shimmers in the picture, but I loved that I just went for it!  It may not be the best, but not bad for a beginner!! haha!!  So I am challenging you to go try something new!  It doesn't matter how it turns out!  Just try!  Have a great evening everybody and keep on crafting!!

Love & Happiness

Hello there my crafty friends!!  Today is my turn to share here on She's a Sassy Lady!  Thank you so much Sheila for having me once again!!  This is a page that I put together while at my scrapbooking retreat last weekend!!  We raised over $1200 for a breast cancer organization located here in the Indianapolis area!

So, here is the layout:

The background paper is from my "stash" of paper and the banners and rectangles with circles are oriental trading christmas paper.  The "Love & Happiness" embellishments are from prima and I sprayed them with my glimmer mists!

I promise to share more in-depth pages with you, but I am sorely under the gun, as my son's wedding is in 3 weeks!!  So I am just a wee bit crazy right now!!  I also think that I will play with how to take better pics of my layouts for you!!

I hope you enjoy the layout and that it inspires you to be creative!!  Have a great day my crafty friends!!

My Cricut Craft Room Blog Hop

Hello my crafty friends!!  Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's October Blog Hop!!  Collectively the design team and guest designers have made some amazing and special projects to share with you... over 60 projects are on this hop, but it is in less than 20 stops..    You should have started at  if not, please start at the beginning!! 

I am super excited to be a guest designer on this blog hop that is helping to relaunch Erica's blog!!  I have two projects to share with you today!!  So scroll on down and take a look!!

This first two page layout is entitled "Bathtime"  I know we all have some cute pictures of little one's taking a bath and the New Arrival cartridge has the perfect cuts for this!!  Don't you just love that little baby in the bathtub!!  She is from the Paper Dolls for Everyday cart!!  I also used an EK boarder punch!!  And some ducks and water spots from my un-ending stash of baby embellishments!!

Now this layout is one that I have been working very hard on.  It is a vintage "Generations" layout.  It is still a work in progress.  I think I am done with it, and then when I look at it, I add more to it!!  Lol!!  But, we are preserving memories here, and the photo of my grandaughter holding my mother's finger is priceless to me.  As well as the photo of all four generations.  The Heritage cart is the perfect cart for this type of layout!!  I love the font from the Blackletter cart and the Art Philosophy cart made the perfect tag!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my crafty space!!  Please make sure to follow me and by all means leave a comment!  I love hearing from you!!  I hope that I have inspired you to do something creative today!!
