Oh WOW ~~ Bring on the CKC LO's..... Lovin' ~~

We are nearing the end of the month,
and I feel like I've gotten SO much done!!
YAY for productivity =)

So this LO is so funny.
This is the last page in the birthday SB
I made for my friend,
and I wanted the last page to be really special and sum up the
events of her birthday.

Well, I worked on the page,
added my title,
and left it on my desk and left the room.

Now generally this is the point where I hang up my work and then leave the room,
but not this night.

I came back in about twenty mins later to find that my 3 year old grandson
had added his own art to the page.

When I asked him about it,
he told me that he'd drawn me, him,
and the girls.

It was so sweet that I left it.
He loves these girls so to,
and I think this may be L's favorite page =)
Well I do love me some detail,
so Sir Cutenesses (my grandson) detail
is perfect for this page =)

Yes, more detail with some braided, twiney love.
Yes you read that right.  I braided it and then on the glue dot it went,
but this technique is NOT for the faint of heart, or the impatient =)

'nuf said.

Oh be still my Sir Cuteness lovin' heart.....

I'm in a BPC class right now on Sketches,
and am lovin' it.
This is one of the sketches,
and it didn't lend itself to much detail.
So instead of adding a lot of extra stuff,
I chose to make detail out of what was on the LO.
So I corner rounded two of the four corners on my journaling spot.....

And I mixed up my title letters.
(Love this technique and do it a lot).
Look at that face =)

Here is another Sketch class LO,
and this one is my son and I and my mama.

Again with the twiney love.
Oh please, tell me twine never goes out of style =)

Oh and I took a journal card and cut it into strips for my journaling.
And some inky love in the corner.
Another fave. 

And some button, shinyness and sticker love!

And again with some mixed lettering.....
Not sure I'm in love with this mix,
but it works ok =)

And one more.....
Yes I was on a roll =)

This one, not my fave.

Pics I love.
LO, not so much,
but I went with it.
My details.....
to similar.
Lettering, the same.

I tried to add Washi love to tie it all together,
It didn't work so well.
But I love the people in it, and I just rolled with it.
Not so bad, I guess.
Just not my fave.
Have I mentioned that?  =)

So there you have it.
I'm hoping to use up most of the rest of my embellies this weekend,
as my paper stash is pretty much completed.
So looking forward to next months CKC.
Bring it!

Have a super Blessed and Beautiful, Crafty kind of day ~~

  3. Wow, you are still going strong! Nice job on your layouts!

  4. Great pages - you are creatively productive, aren't you. And I want to you to know that I have done some twiney love on a card in the interim - now I'll have to step it up to braided twiney love. You are an inspiration.
