scrappin with Deedee....

Ok... seriously, we finally got together Deedee and I, hooray!!!  Something about the zero degree weather this morning, I thought, now that the girls are in the car... I'm going through the Starbucks drive through and heading over to Deedee's house.  Once you've got them bundled up and ready to go, you've got to keep going, or you might just not get out again.  After our morning coffee, we ventured into Deedee's craft room, and we started playing with a letter her mom wrote... back in the day.  I started going crazy with her beautiful BoBunny papers, and it had to become a funky valentine... don't be disturbed by the headless school girls.  Yes, there are more than one.  This has nothing to do with Deedee's mother, just my crazy collaging.  Deedee is making a beautiful vintage piece, and look at that cool photo of her mother's school house with the letter she wrote super imposed on top of it.  She's learning photoshop and it's quite inspiring!  She takes her time, so her pieces are timeless, and I jump right in, so my girls are beheaded... yeah.  Maybe this will inspire some fun valentines... It's coming up!!!  Crazy!!!

More photo transfers

Here's another photo transfer that I made for my sister. I was tempted to hang it on my wall but decided I would much rather give it to Donna. :-) I love those old family photos! I am going to start working on an album soon that will be all vintage pictures and things that my grandmother saved or wrote down. My aunt Patricia is going to help me with the album. I will post pictures of it as I go. At the top is a picture of a letter my mom wrote about the one room schoolhouse she went to as a little girl, I layered it on top of a picture of the old schoolhouse. I can't wait to get started on the ablum!

making cards...

I hope your holidays have been great!  I can't believe we're already into January.  I took down my Christmas tree today, 'cause I really stretch out the Christmas season as long as I can get away with it.  I've done a few scrapbook projects these last few weeks, but it seems like they were all done in a whirlwind, and I needed to wrap them up before I could even photograph and post them!  Deedee and I are in serious need of a crafting day together, and now that the holidays have past, we're looking forward to getting together and throwing ideas back and forth.

With my Memory Bound gift card, I picked up a new Tim Holtz die cut.  It's a lot of fun.  Aeva modeled it for me before I decided to put it on a card.  Here are photos of both Aeva and the thank you card she inspired.  :-)

Happy New Year!
