First off why do I love being me? I have seen God's blessing and miracles in my life. I have a precious little boy who just made the top score on a math bench mark at school. Great achievement in itself, but made even more incredible because his doctors told me when he was born at 1 pound 11 oz. that he wouldn't be able to learn and would be very sick. A miracle! I also have a beautiful boy who is about to graduate high school on June 10th. Miracle and a Blessing! And......my middle son is the most amazing tuba player who tells me he knows he made 100 on his TAKS test. What a blessing! My husband has been the love of my life for 26 years. A Great Blessing. Now....I get to scrap for TCS! I am very blessed.
Making this canvas was so much fun! Since I am a hybrid scrapper, I wanted to use the best of the digital and the paper world. My crown and wings are from my friend Fantacy Bryant. The button, list and leaf are from Weeds and Wildflowers. Then I added the Simply Luxe paper as a border and stickled it all over! I also Stickled my canvas. The B was a great project that Caroline from Maya Road shared with us during a make and take at the birthday crop. The chipboard was painted stamped and covered with UTEE and heat set. It was mega fun!
So...this is me...my blessing inspire me and fill me with such joy, that I just have to scrap about it!

Yesterday was The Crafty Scrapper's 3rd anniversary. It was awesome! Caroline from Maya Roads and the gals from Ten Second Studio were out doing make and takes. It was so much fun! I cropped from 10am to 12pm. Carolyn and all the gals are always such gracious hostesses!
When I do my new scrap room. I am basing it around the Graphic 45 Cherrie paper. Well....Carolyn sold that line so fast...I was left scrambling. Luxe has a new line called Simply Luxe. You can use it to accent or coordinate with anything in your stash. So I grabbed the red polkadot and some vintage photo and inked. Now I think it coodintes really well with my Cherry Crossword Paper in the middle. My friend Sharon gave me this great B. I am pretty happy with the results.
While I am talking about Luxe, they are having a DT call. Don't know if I will do it or not, one of the categories is to make some jewlery. This is my attempt at jewlery. I have never made wearable art before. It was fun.
This is a layout of one of my favorite gals. She is at her daddy's b'day party a few years ago eating a blue cupcake! I used the new Basic Grey Cupcake and the Maya Roads chipboard letters and flowers. I covered the flowers with paper and bling. I painted the letters and doodled on them. The first d freehangs from a flower.
Who is this precious gal?! She was having a great time with her grandma at The Crafty Scrapper! I tell you, the place is fun for all ages!
