A Bee's Habitat and Another Goody

After Carolyn from The Crafty Scrapper came back from CHA, she issued a canvas challenge to make a habitat. Well....after a false start, this is what I have come up with. I'm not sure that this is what anyone had in mind, but it is what I have.

There is a lot of dimension. The beehive has three layers and the top layer does curve.

The bottom grass layer curves as well.

I'm wondering if I need to do anything else to it.

I did make a LO using a photo that Marie Q made of my boys. I was very nervous about doing this because of the monotary investment. But I really wanted to make a LO for my scrapping area if it ever gets completed.

Been Busy

I realize I need to make a new blog header....I will probably get around to that this summer.

I do have picts of the LOs that I made with my Wesleyan gal pals when we retreated to Cedar Creek Lake- Melissa thanks so much for inviting me! It was a very welcomed break. Here are some of the things I did.

Some of you may remember that last summer I took the boys to Dinosaur National Park and Dino World so I would have an excuse to buy that really cute Basic Grey Paper. Well I did finally scrap. My problem is that I have a really hard time scrapping tons of pictures on a paper. But, I did it.

Tune in next time when I show you what happened when I was brave enough to scrap a Marie Q photo.

BTW....Here is a little LO that Sam and I made yesterday using Dawn Inksips Brand New Day and her new Clay Buttons. Sam thought they looked like Easter Eggs. So I did the extraction and he placed the elements. We had a fun time! Happy Easter Everyone.

Some LOs

Contrary to popular belief, I have made some LO lately.... I just haven't posted them. So I'll post some of my digi ones. Maybe later I will post some of my paper.

The first one is with Kris Myers' Natural Beauty Add on Kit.
The next one is kinda funny because it is Kari Q's Alyssa kit which is a baby kit. So I used it on the biggest baby I have. It really has some cool not so baby colors.

This was done with Kari Q.'s Natalie Kit. It is fun- just right for those Tweens. She does have another daughter, so I will be doing the other kit tonight.

I'm very excited to be a guest creative team member of Dawn Inskip for the month of April. I have been internet buddies with Dawn for a while. I have always lover her kits. The girl just has a way with a copic marker. I love her style. It is very unique.

The first LO is one of her older kits- Weather Station. I did this for a white space challenge at PickleBerryPop.

The next two kits used her Brand New Day kit. The first one also incorporates her Dates, Borders element kit and Paper Layers.

The colors are just awesome.

Oh....I forgot. Sweet Melissa from PBP gave me a nice award. Her blog Remember to Breathe is found here:

Well I have several people that I think really promote cultural awareness, ethical and literary awareness.
My friend Monkey at Hi! Monkey is always educating the public on cultural holidays, good will to his fellow man and just having fun. I feel like the world is a better place because of him. I know my tea time has certainly been enhanced.
Sara, a dear friend of mine from Kerrville, inspires me with her charm and whit and elegant taste. She is a straight shooter and always tells me what she thinks is true and is faithful to her beliefs and convictions.
Sherri has been known to let loose with some great literature from time to time makes me happy everytime I go to her blog.
Cindy at Yappin Cat is always educating me. Enjoy your awards!
