Playing With Paisley

I started out today with the intention of making some cards for a Valentine's themed card swap that I am in. That got me started working with the red and black, but my end result was not quite a Valentine. Oh well, I love how this card turned out! I used the Paisley Rockz stamp set to make the petals of my flower. I then used the little flower stamp in the set for my flower center and put a black brad in the center of that. The red paisleys are the Palette Moulin Rouge Ink and they are a much darker red in person. The scan shows it lighter than it actually is. The base of the card is 4" x 4", and the Scarlet cardstock is 3" x 3".
It was unbelievably hard to resist doing something to the black card. I wanted to stamp something on it, add some ribbon, brads or just something. I kept reminding myself that sometimes less is more, and I really like the main focus being on the flower. There isn't anything else to detract from it.

Got My Picture Scrapped!

I had some time yesterday morning to play with that picture of the kids and I got a page done. It is an 8 x 8 page and it turned out really cute. I put instructions up on my website.

When I was done I had it sitting up on the shelf above my table. When Emma saw it, she said "2 pictures of Emma!". She has this obsession recently with pictures. There are a lot more pictures of Alex around the house than there are of Emma just because he is so much older and I have been really bad about putting pictures in frames lately. Well, she has noticed! She is constantly going to the pictures around the house as if she is looking for pictures of herself. So, she gets really excited any time that she sees a picture of herself. Needless to say, i'm in the process of printing and framing some pictures of her so she doesn't feel left out!

My Two Little Cuties

We decorated our Christmas tree the other night and of course, we had the camera out to get some pictures of the kids. I got this picture of Alex & Emma...

I just love this picture! Not too silly, but not too serious. I just printed it out and it is sitting on my table waiting to be scrapped. I'm just drawing a blank right now and can't get anything going. I guess I will wait until tomorrow and see what happens.

I can see my table again!

Yesterday I finally got busy and started cleaning up my workspace. After a couple of hours of sorting and organizing I can finally see my table again!!! I just hung the shelf on the wall and I am going to hang some more. I like having it there to put up some of the cards that I have received and it will be nice to keep some of my stamps right there above my work surface.

Now I just wonder how long it will last. With everything so neat and tidy it really makes me want to go play! I really can't wait to add more stuff to the wall. Just adding the shelf made a huge difference. The wall was totally bare, and now it is starting to actually look like something. But, my most favorite thing is the little green Yoshi that is on my lamp. Yoshi is my favorite character from the Mario games, and I got him out of a Happy Meal a couple of months ago. He is hanging on right where the lamp arm folds. Too cute!
