Raindrops on Roses inspired my coloring for this beautiful retired stamp. The layout was inspired by Tracy's card. The main image is retired but you can still find the decorative corner die, swirls stamp and die, little posies stamps and die, decorative square, and paper lace die in the store.

I used Prismacolor pencils to color this image. The rose and leaves are topped with Stickles and I used a bit of Glossy Accents on the cup details.

I used Wheatfields Glimmer Mist to give shine to the little flowers and green swirls.

Thanks for stopping by!

love my helper *Memorable Seasons*

I have new Recipe Challenge for you at Memorable Seasons today!

I did scraplift of Attitude by Jayneway. Papers are from A Charmed Life by Simple Stories.

The wood frame is from Recollections- a Michael's brand. "Oh snap!" is a stamp from Scraptastic. "Love" is by Jillibean Soup. The letters for "my" are from Fancy Pants. Missy Whidden did an awesome job using a marker to write part of her title and then fussy cut it for her layout. I thought, I can't do that. Yes, I can! Go "helper"!

I love this fun sticker from Bazzill. The circular stamp is an oldie from Sandylion.

about 2 cousins

I haven't been over to Counterfeit Kits in awhile but their concept still rocks my socks. I love shopping my own stash and putting together a kit I can use for my next few projects. This helps me use things I would probably otherwise overlook. I also scrap faster this way.

Picture Apologies. I have a mix of Scribble Scrabble, Crate Paper, and Simple Stories here. I also pulled a 6x6 paper from Farm House.

I love hearts so they're taking center stage here. This old collection by Scribble Scrabble is called "Bric a Brac." The brick paper is from the Farm House 6x6 paper pad.

The title is a mix of Jillibean Soup, Crate Paper, and Basic Grey. The "family tag" is Crate paper and the heart is from Recollections- a Michael's brand. The border punch is Martha Stewart.

The brads are oldies from Kaisercraft. The arrows are rub ons from Fancy Pants. I applied them to Kraft card stock and then cut them out.

More random bits and journaling. The chipboard button is from K and Company.

I have several collections from Scribble Scrabble but I definitely prefer to work with brighter colors.

Thanks for stopping by!

grammy stops for rocks

I love these photos of my little boy with his Grammy. He has apparently spotted a very interesting rock and she doesn't mind letting him pick out his treasure.

 We've got a mix of American Crafts, Studio Calico, Teresa Collins, and Pebbles and more going here.

The journaling card is from Teresa Collins.

The hearts are from a punch by Martha Stewart. The title letters are from Webster's Pages, Basic Grey, and American Crafts.

The banner chipboard is Basic Grey. The circular stamp is... can't remember. Scrappy Cat? I topped the middle with a sweet little heart. I love hearts.

These fun clouds are from Pebbles. I rescued them from clearance at Michael's a couple of years ago.

Thanks for stopping by!
