She misses the kids - she's got five great grandkids in all - I like to do things like this for her every so often. She can't hang frames on the wall, and obviously (by missing a whole box of photos now in my posession) she has no room for those either. A minialbum I can sneak in ;)
Products....Outback Steakhouse coasters (their fault); oversized playing card 5 of hearts; definition sticker; misc lace (actually got that from her a few years ago!); Li'l Davis bookplate; MM brads; misc metal heart; GlueDots; PP DreamStreet (love this); Colorbok transparencies (front and back); and MM typeset stickers Mini.
SO MUCH FUN!! ANd super quick -only because all of the photos are from the same night and were all printed together anyway hahaha - with exception of the beach pic at the end. I like to remind people where we are ;) jealousy is a good tool to help with memory problems!!

This is my fave size....my ultimate FAVE pic of bren as a baby (seriously...guess I'm a chronological scrapper....uh, NOT! lol)
I have been having the best time playing with my scrapbook supplies. Having ink and paint on my hands (and my clothes, and face...you get the point). Inspiration flowing...gotta love this!!
I am enjoying catching up with my tag-team-partner Lynn...projects flowing from both of us lately and it's spectacular! http://murphyslaw-lynn.blogspot.com/

My very first altered canvas project. I wanna know something though (kind of throwing myself a curve ball right at the start of the post...nice)...WHY is it called an ALTERED canvas?? Essentially EVERY canvas is altered from its original blank state if it is painted on or sketched on...so why the word altered??? Okayyyy...nevermind. TO THE PICTURES batman!
The canvas was teeeeeeny -- only 2.5 x 2.5 (not the one in the photo) --- I wanted to start small just in case it turned out hideously (seriously, there is always the slight possibility of gross-happenings).
I used acrylic paints, alcohol inks and glimmer mist (chalkboard). I had gotten some clear stamps, used Tim Holtz ink for those. old Maisy Mo white rubons are tossed in there as well. Dictionary page clippings --- definition for LIKE. THEN - this is the most awesome part of it that had me excited and jazzed for DAYS - image transfer done with gel medium and a photocopied picture (printed "mirror image" so that the pic would turn "right side" when tranferred). That was the most awesome thing I've done in a while!! It turned out WAYYYY more cool than even I thought it would! I'll like out the site I found the directions for it...I don't have it right now lol

What's missing now?
A shoe? no that was tuesday.
Socks? no, that's pretty much every other morning.
Phone? No, no, not that. We have the phones. I have mine. Kids have one too. Their dad bought them phones. Right now, he's paying for service on one that hasn't been on in like 12 days. Why? because that phone belongs to an EIGHT year old that refuses to keep track of her crap. It's dead -- because she can't find the charger. Does any other charger of the 132i3209482348 that we have in our "omg what is this" basket FIT her phone?? Oh hell no. that would be waaay too easy.
SHe balances her life well. Lose the charger for her phone for almost 2 weeks --- and got Citizen Of The Month for her school. Seriously. "...was selected for demonstrating positive character in her homeroom, in the school and for confronting the challenge to use good manners everyday." Really? So to tackle the ramifications of getting Citizen of the month --we can lose a charger that only serves ONE PURPOSE...to charge the PHONE that we "oh so desperately needed". REALLY????
I think I'm gonna balance this out by doing a couple of things. I'll either have to drink copious amounts of alcohol until this makes sense to me....or I'll color with crayons. It's a coin toss...

Errands to run. Groceries to get (and I absolutely detest this task...grocery store time SUCKS...but that is another post entirely). Dinner to cook. Chores to be tended to (and a task master/slave driver to the offspring). Dishes. Laundry? yep. *sigh* SO I'm left with what now??
Oh. I'm left with a mental checklist. A notebook with scribbled notations of the creating that I wanted to do. Pictures/gel medium/transfers/paint/glorious plans in my head for the creating that I want to do...and didn't get to do today.
Life. Gotta love it!
