Ugh!! Don't know what's up with these migraines, but since I came back from El Paso, I've had 2 three day stints of these. Bad enough for me to ask my Mom to take me to the doctor's, to get better meds!!! For years, I would only get about 2 'normal' (as if there's such a thing), migraines a year. But this past year has been horrendous!!! I'm getting them more often, and they're lasting a lot longer!!! Definitely NOT fun!!
Needless to say, everything I wanted to do last week, got pushed to this week. And now, well...I def want to apply for the Graphic 45 DT. I've been working my butt off, trying to get some projects done. So, once again, everything is being neglected. Including my poor little blog!! And my normal blog hopping!!
I did get a nice little gift, from my scrappy buddy Denise at Vintage Scrappin......it's the
How cool is that?!!!!! This is how it works....if you get tagged with the award, you need to create a post, where you post the Liebster Blog image. Then you choose 3 to 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post. Simple......

And now, for something scrappy......
For the life of me, I can't remember where I got the GCD paper!! I want to say that it was part of the January Swirlydoos kit, but I'm not sure. Anyways, LOVE this paper. It's really too bad, that this isn't a very good pic of my LO!! Cause it doesn't do it any justice. Long story but I got a taller easel to take pics of my projects, and it's thrown my picture taking off. Doesn't take much, does it? LOL
I'm continuing on, with my resolution, to use at least one old piece on each project. This one used a bunch of older stuff!! Which is good, cause I just ordered a bunch of new stuff!! As a side note, I used some of Ranger's Liquid Pearls today....OMG!! Now, I have to get these in every color!! They have got to be the easiest dimensional paints I've ever used!!! I seem to have issues with all of the other brands I've tried...they just never look right.
I'm finding that I'm getting more 'outgoing' with color!! Using much brighter colors, and opting for higher contrast now. Still love the subdued look, but sometimes you just got to be BOLD. Lots of layers here. Even inked the little hand.....which was a button.
The chipboard spinner is K&Co, I layered it over some chippie wings from Maya Road, which I glittered (Martha Stewart). Then layered those over an inked piece of acrylic (packaging), that I embossed with a Timmy folder, and then I tucked in some eyelet lash yarn from Expo Intl. behind it.
I can't decide if I like the way I placed the wings or not. It looked good, when I put the whole thing together, but once I added it to the page, I felt that they were just a little off. Oh well......cause I used my best sticky stuff....and there was no way I was going to take it apart!!
I just read my post over (my spell/grammar check).....wow!! Really choppy, and broken up. If this was an essay for school, I'd flunk!! LOL I guess I'm tired, at least that's what I'm going with!!
Back next week with Graphic 45 projects!!!!!!
Til then, happy scrapping!!
