I've really missed adding paint to my pages. A year ago or so, I had to throw out my Making Memories paints. All of them were dried out and unusable.

Recently, I picked up a few Martha Stewart paints from Michael's. I think I like them even more than the Making Memories paints! They're thick and smooth and easy to apply. I've also been experimenting with other mediums. The first layout below has "glass beads". You can mix it with the paint and it gives a really cool texture.

The last couple of layouts I've made have some paint on them:

 Papers are  Lily Bee (one of my absolutely favorite companies). I think the title card is Fancy Pants. I keep a stash of "loose" items underneath my desk. It forces me to use something I normally wouldn't.

Papers are Studio Calico. There is also some Crate, BasicGrey and 7Gypsies.

Thanks for looking and thanks so much for your comments. Have a great day.

Oldies but Goodies

I was going through my stash looking for scraps to throw out (because I need the room!!). After they were all spread out on the desk, I decided I couldn't part with them quite yet so I made a layout using them.

I also added some newer stuff like the Fancy Pants and the Prima stamp. I love mixing up old with new.

Thanks for looking. :D

The baby is sleeping

It's so nice. I can just put him in his pack and play and he falls asleep. I love it. Of course, he has to have his special blanket. It used to be his pacifier and blanket but he doesn't use the pacifier anymore.

Here are a couple layouts that were in Ready, Set, Create. I recently had to step down from the designer position as I still could not get enough time in from watching Blake all day. Now that I can just lay him down, I'm starting to get a bit of time back. Whew!

Both of these use Echo Park.

Thanks for looking and thanks for your comments.

Trying to get back into this

Oh, it's hard to blog with a baby. It's hard to create anything with a baby. I don't know how some of you do it.

Anyway, here are a couple layouts I've completed a few weeks ago. It's taken me this long to get them scanned:

 This was made with mostly October Afternoon Farmhouse.

This one was all scraps I was going to throw away. Mostly Sassafras. There is also some Daisy D's and Making Memories.

Thanks for your time!! I hope to keep this blog up.
