That Darn Dog

I just get her spick and span and then this happens...
'God Made Dirt'
Sure, sure, she's cute...but dirty, and then there are all of these wonderful, little paw prints throughout the house because she insists on busting past me at the door before I can wipe her feet... what a nutbar.
Anyway, this layout started with, well the pictures, but then a file folder, which has been cut down to 8.5" square.  I added some My Mind's Eye and Authentique leftovers and threw on some {acrylic} paint {just cheapies from the dollarstore} to create the look of 'mud'.  The alphas are a mix of Pink Paisley and Thickers that have been rubbed with a mix of sandpaper, Walnut Stain distress ink, more paint, and {homemade} glimmer mist.

'God' has been popped up using popdots {dollarstore} for some added demension.  This is my first time really working with paints on a layout...and it will definitely NOT be my last!

 Thanks for stopping by!

A Guilt Trip...and some FREE STUFF!

Okay - I have been feeling a wee bit guilty about not scrapbooking...Then I got to thinking, that's not entirely true...While I haven't put a layout together in sometime, I have been QUITE BUSY with scrapbooking-related tasks! For example, like purging my scrappy supplies {some of which are pictured at the end of this post - they are up for grabs...more details below}, making {digital} invitations and fun signs for my Dad's Surprise 59 and a half Birthday Party, re-organizing my {ever-growing} supplies and the list goes on...
{Purged Supplies}
{Surprise Party Invites}
Back & Front
{Surprise Party Sign}
{PhotoBooth Signs}
 So, you see {self}, I HAVE been doing 'paper-crafting'!
NOW, onto the purged items... I think this is how I will do it, EVERYTHING IS FREE - EXCEPT for the SHIPPING! If you want it, just leave a comment saying just what item you would like {it is going to be FIRST COME {comment}, FIRST SERVE} and then just email me} your shipping address and we will figure the shipping payment out together.
Okay, here are a couple of the items:
Vintage Measuring Tapes
{9ft in length}
Prima Flowers
{still in package}
Crate Paper - Restoration
{random chipboard - 16pcs}
Crate Paper - Emma's Shoppe
Tim Holtz Stamp
Random Stickers {un-opened}
That's it for today - remember to COMMENT AND EMAIL ME...and the item is yours! {When I run out, I run out!}

Hope your days are GREAT!

It's Wednesday!

Thinking of You
It's Wednesday and it's my day to post at Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches! For this card I punched the corners of the floral patterned Crate Paper with Kreaxions 4in1 Punch #304, I then kept the punched pieces and attached them to the cream matte for some added detail {plus a great way to use what I would have otherwise tossed in the trash!}. The sweet, little BIRDS {die} was cut on Crate, as well {I believe it is from the Random Collection - it came from my scrap box}!

Happy 4th of July to all of my American Friends {and Family}!
Great Days and Happy Crafting!
