So, i had a little set back with my diet and i was feeling kinda bad.
AND because i had family in town for 4 days I didn't have a chance to scrapbook at all and i swear to god i felt withdrawals from that!!
Anyways, instead of continuing to whine on my couch i decided to make a page about it and it totally cheered me up!!

No plan, i just grabbed my favorite color acrylics and textures.

I didn't realize until today how much this craft fulfills and feeds my soul!

I love how using textured cardstock and lightly applied acrylic creates a canvas texture.

DCWV Metallic Stack - Nightlife with Acrylic Paint
Glimmer Mist - Black Cherry
Bam Pop Frame
Queen & Co Felt (and the backer of the felt painted)
Assorted ribbon, yarn and buttons
Chipboard and alphabet stickers

OLW : Full

For the One Little Word challenge: Full.

The background paper is a piece of cardstock I've been using as a pallette for the last month or so - i thought this challenge a perfect use for all the paint, glimmer mist and ink that's accumulated on it!

yeah - paper AND tulle flowers!!

My Story : Tattoos

From Challenge #2 over at inked scrapbookers


Once upon a time there lived a chick who lived to create, dance and sing - "free spirit" was her ultimate compliment. One of her greatest fears was to live an ordinary existance. For no other reason than to make herself feel better, one day she got her first tattoo. So addictive was the experience that one turned into eleven (and counting...)

My tattoos are my story. They make me feel proud, strong, sexy and confident - anything but ordinary! They don't define who I am, but they are a personal retrospective, each with their own story, each unique - just like me.

I just got Photo Booth on my Mac and that is the inspiration of this layout (as well as the reason i scrap naked)!

OLW : Simple Delight

For the One Little Word challenge.
I couldn't get good photos of this one, but I already have it framed and on my wall :)

I played with a lot of different texture and mixed color to try and replicate the Delight that mother nature gives me in her own creations. This is also one of the more simpler layouts I've done in awhile hence the title. All the pictures I have taken in the last month or so.

Dail Card box

I made this box to house all of my recent daily journal cards. The template for the box can be found at Crafttvweekly.com.

The word brads on the spine have been something I've been holding onto for about 2 years. I love them so much. This box, well the contents, are perfectly described by each word so I took them out of their packaging and put them on there.

The journal cards (past, present and future) can all be found here.

Box Materials:
DCWV All Dressed Up Paper
Acrylic Paint & Stamp Ink & Glimmer Mist Black Cherry
Bottle Cap embellishment I made
Heart frame from secondhand shop for $1
Pink Heart from Maya Road
Dymo, Buttons and Net Fabric
