Lil Chef

Hello, It has been a few days.  My birthday was Friday and I have been celebrating with friends and family.  How was your Easter.  Did you eat lots of chocolate.  
When my son, Robert, was a little boy he loved to cook.  So I made this page to remember those beautiful, messy moments.  Cricut has some awesome pre designed pages.  I used a page from Familly Album and changed a few things up.  The chalkboard papers are Recollections, the rest is DCWV.

I can't believe this little guy is now an adult an will be leaving for college in August.  He was a was a wild and crazy 4 year old.  The base paper is and the solid mats are DCWV.  I used Echo Park stickers.Only 15 more years to scrap.


I though I would try to make a Try Fold card by Art Impressions.  I was going to start over because I thought the middle scene was crooked.  My daughter thought it looked like  quaint uphill, european street.  I stamped the images on Canson Watercolor paper using Stayzon ink.  Then I watercolored the images using Marvy Markers.

Hello.  It has been a while since I posted.  Both of my daughters are home for a while.  The house is busy.  Last weekend I went to the Scrapbook Expo.  I took a few classes and did a lot of shopping.  I bought a lot of Artistic Impression stamps.
For the last 25 years my old neighbor friends and I meet for coffee on Saturday mornings.  We have been through a lot together.  I made this card for one of the gals.
I cut the mat with a Spellbinders die.  The papers are Colorbok.  I stamped the image on Canson watercolor paper with Stayz on ink.  Then i put some ink from Marvy markers on a palette.   I then watercolored the images.  The beautiful Sweet Love Ribbon is from the Valentine Bundle at DL.ART
