My little Baker

Hello!  Today I have a page about my little grandson, Talan.  He is just too cute for words here (doesn't every grandmom feel this way?!).  He wants to help with everything so on this day in January 2017, we baked some cookies.  In these photos you can see JOY & SILLINESS. Oh, and that ME & MY BIG IDEAS CHEF is about 15 years old -I must have saved it just for this!!! LOL! I did this page for the following challenge site: (click & go->) 123-Challenge Blog.  This month's challenge was to use the word FUN, the color brown and borders.

 Thanks for stopping by!

Me and...Challenge YOUrself!

Hello everyone!...I am using this week's sketch at Hip Kit Club and playing along at (click & go there ->) Challenge Yourself. The challenge there is always to be in the picture yourself plus use negative space-that is a challenge for me which is why I did it!   This is a page with my sister in law, Marion and ME just before New Years Eve 2016-2017.  It was a fun evening even though my husband and I left before midnight! LOL!

 I used this sketch from Hip Kit Club along with supplies
from 2 different Hip Kit collections, plus my own stash!

Thanks for stopping by and I
appreciate your comments!

ATCs with Creative Embellishments!

Hello!  I am so enjoying being on the Design Team for -> CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  I truly love their products (and they are reasonable too!) The following are ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) created using several of their products.  (and don't forget to check & join the monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in products!
and a closer view of just 1 of the cards:
Distressed text stamp (used in the background)
Flair buttons (1 on each card)
Butterfly (chalk inked each one)
stars (this is a border length and I cut and inked and silver stickled each piece)
Gears (silver stickled)
love (a tag that I cut into strips!)
Thanks so much for stopping in!
