Ton's To Share!

Hi everyone!  I'm back... ha  I have actually gotten my scrappy mojo back....yeah!!  But I'm still dragging my behind on getting back to blogging my projects.  I am getting there but I'm being a bit slow so today I will be sharing 3 projects!  Let's get started...

One of the reasons I have my mojo back is that I found a new local scrappy friend!  The amazing thing is the way I found her.  My daughter brought home a birthday invitation and it said to RSVP to Rochelle Spears.  When I read the name I went, "wait a minute!"  "Rochelle Spears?!"  Could this be Rochelle Spears Scrapbooking that I know online??!  I went all "fan girlie" for a minute!! LOL

So I rushed to Facebook to check if my online friend was in fact the mother of a child in my child's class!!  And can you believe it?  She was/is!  So I emailed her to RSVP and tried to play it cool so that she didn't think I was a crazy stalker! ROTF  At the party we talked scrapping as much as we could and then made a "play (scrap) date".  And the amazingly wonderful thing is that when we got together it was effortless and it just seemed like we already knew each other.  And we had a fun scrapping together.  We have already gotten together twice and plan to do it again next week. (and again and again!)   I am thrilled to bits to have made friends with Rochelle.

I have made 3 layouts and 1 card during our scrapping time.  I'm sharing some of them here today in addition to one other layout I made.

The first layout I'm sharing I made for the challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  The sketch is by Rochelle and it was super fun to scrap.  You are required to make your own background w/cardstock, stencils and/or mask and a medium i.e. paint, ink etc.


I used white cardstock and a fun stencil for my background.  I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Chartreuse to spray my stencil and then I dripped Primrose and Teal Color Shine on top of the paper too.  Then I inked the edges of the paper with my Ranger Distress pad in Peeled Paint.  The photos are some that I took on Mother's day.  I'm entering this in the number challenge at Making Today Better Than Yesterday.

My next layout is for the May 1st sketch challenge at Sketch N Scrap.  I decided to scrap some photos of my son and his friend that I took while they were working on a cooking project for their World Geography class.  I used papers from the Bo Bunny - Our Lil' Monster collection.

The next thing to share is another watercolor card.  While Rochelle was here the first time, I showed her how to do the watercolor technique that I used to make the two watercolor cards I recently posted (last two posts).  Afterwards I had this pretty watercolored square just sitting on my desk so I had to make it into a card.  And of course I had to share it too.  lol

The stamp is from Hero Arts - Big Ticket stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine onyx black pigment ink.

So that's all from me for today.  Thanks for sticking around and reading this LONG post! ha  Until next time...happy scrapping!
