Calgon take me away!!!

It's just been one of those weeks, where it seems everything that can go wrong does!!!! So today I'm pretending I'm at a SPA with my favorite scented candles Strawberry Rhubarb, some Pinot Noir and Massager named Rico Suave massaging all of my aches and pains with natural oils! OH Can you picture it, yeah me too! LOL

Well let's get back to reality though, the only one good thing I did this week was go to a hair salon and do the works, yes colored, highlights, and haircut the cost $105. The time away from home Priceless.

Just a few announcements Timeless Daydreams is having it's first NSD Crop on Saturday May 1 and the celebration continues until Monday May 3 til Midnight EST. There will be Challenges Prizes, Raks, and games to play! Also we are giving away some Prima flowers on our
Timeless Daydreams Blog. Come and join us this weekend, we can't wait to see you all!!!!

funny little girl

Let tell you the joys of being a mom to a 5 yr old at my age, it's fabulous. She makes us all laugh the things she does or says. Everyday you can expect something wonderful though each day too you can expect a little stress, but overall it's just fabulous. I had forgotten I taken these pics of Elisa on the last winter snow storm we had. She was getting ready for a snow day outside, and all of the sudden she says "Mommy I need goggles, I say Elisa you don't have goggles" she says "yes I do" and runs to where her beach toys are and then comes out with her swimming goggles. LMAO Had to take a picture of swimming goggles with winter gear. Used my kit from Timeless Daydreams

Manic Monday!!!

So it was a great weekend, I was so anxious on Friday because I was going to meet with my scrappy sisters and work on a canvas. I have to say that the response was fabulous looking forward to seeing these ladies again in 2 weeks. On Saturday I went to a Cricut Swarm class, loved that I learned new techniques on my cricut looking forward to trying these out soon. On Sunday was my day to just relax, I was a little sick but at least I was relaxed.

So last week Rosann challenged me to create a Masculine layout, she says that she loves my work, but wanted to see a more Masculine layout. At first I thought OMG can I do it! Well I did and I loved it, I used Timeless Daydreams Tavern on the Green kit which includes Pink Paislee's Queen Bee line along with some Basic Grey's Origins line. Love this kit, can be used for unisex layouts. I also used some Helmar 450 Quick Dry and some Helmar squares Zap Dots I love the dimension of the stars in this layout!!! Oh and by the way when you are stuck and don't know where to start with a layout head on over to Creative Scrappers blog, new sketches posted Mondays

I can see clearly now

As many of you know I love acrylic, and the many uses for it! I created this layout for Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs. Let me just say that I love the out come of this layout. I had an extra sheet of acrylic from the Flipped out collection so I decided to use it on a layout. I stamped flourishes with Staz On ink love that stuff, works wonderful on acrylic I then added some pearls to give it a bling, and well lets not forget the flowers. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere the acrylic to the cardstock and I also added it to the flowers. It's a simple layout, I wanted the acrylic to pop! thanks for looking!!!

Remember that Canvas

I said I was working on, well here it is I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, OMG this stuff really dries quick and also clear. I added it to adhere the pattern paper to the canvas and viola it was on like magic. I also used it to roll my pattern papers loved this new technique and knew I had to try it and the Helmar 450 was perfect for this project.

I am so excited to be teaching a class next week on the canvas and for my some of my
Timeless Daydreams gals you are all going to love painting, rolling and using Helmar adhesive.
Products used: Martha Stewart calligraphy pen, Pink Paislee Bayberry cottage, Kaisercraft pearls, Ranger ink paint dabber, American crafts, Helmar 450 Quick dry, Making Memories trimmer, Bubble wrap, Prima flower

Spring Break over

thank goodness, the bickering between my 16 yr old and my 5 yr old was driving me crazy. LOL. I think what I loved the best was not getting up so early to rush kids off to school, but I tell you this I was up at 5:50am this morning I was not playing those kids were out of here. LOL

On the bright side this past week my 5 yr old learned how to tie her shoes, can you see a layout coming... here are some pics
