Creative Overload!

I've been busy creating the past few weeks, but hadn't shared any of my projects.

First off, I decided to try for a spot on the Pebbles Inc team.
Here are some of my submissions, which didn't photograph well when I made them. So I'm hoping someone from Pebbles might peek at my blog. (Keep your fingers crossed!)

Here's a layout from the Twitterpated line. I wanted to show that the colors could be used for a boy page. I loved how the colors showed the rosy glow of my son's face.
This week's Sketchy Thursday sketch inspired me to create this page:

I used this line to make my card. So many possibilities here!

Next up is some wall art I made using the Treehouse line. I just love the Chips and used a lot of them on this project:

This project was something very different for me. A friend at work was expecting her first grandaughter. She asked me to create an altered canvas for the baby's room. It was a big surface to work with, but she was thrilled with how it turned out.

The background was painted with acrylic paint, then spritzed with glimmer mist.
I used K & Co papers and lots of Jolee's and Martha Stewart stickers. Too cute!

Wow that's a lot of scrapping - Stay tuned for more tomorrow. Off to sleep since I'm working again tonight.

A peaceful easy feeling

I've got one.
A week of togetherness.
Catching up, laughing, a few tears.
Tons of pictures
It was a great week here in Ohio.

Here are some of my favorite moments...

Tomorrow we head back home.

It's about living LARGE

This is a ride called MaXair at Cedar Point. The ring swings in a pendulum motion to a height of 140 feet. It reaches speeds of 70 mph. I am proud to say I rode it, despite my crazy fear of heights. It was such a rush. I just knew I had to do it when I saw a program about Cedar Heights on Burt the Conqueror.
I was crazy scared, but I knew I'd be mad at myself if I backed out. So I put on my big girl pants and went for it. So glad I did.

Another risk I recently took was to apply for a design team. I was feeling so out of the online scrapbook community. I was just thriled when Debbi Tehrani emailed me, asking me to join the How Much is Too Much? Challenge Blog team. There is such crazy talent on this team- I am so honored to be associated with them! I hope you'll stop by and check our challenges out.
Here is my layout for last week's challenge. I created this for New England Scrapbook Company, using the Retrobot line by Reiminisce.

This line is so fun, and perfect for a teen boy. I used the music note stickers like a banner, and framed Colin with names of his favorite artists. It should be interesting to look back on someday.
