This is another LO that i did for the Black, white and another color challenge. It just seemed to fit. I think this is one of my favorite LO's in a long time!! I just love this picture. I took it on a special setting on my camera.

Aug LO #38

This is a LO for a challenge on S2L. It was use Black and White and 1 other color. As you can see, the other color was blue. This was a beautiful butterfly that was on the beach when we were camping. There is such a difference between the inside of the wings and the outside. The paper is Bazzill, the flowers are Prima, the journal page is Making Memories-5th Ave.

Aug LO #34-37

These are 3 LO's for Micah from our camping trip. These are from the beach. He had such a good time there!!

In the "Water" LO, there is a little fish brad in the middle of the A. It is hard to see.

Aug LO #31-33

These are 3 LO's that look a lot alike. There is 1 each for my 3 kids from a Touch a Truck event. The paper piecings i received from a PIF 2 years ago. They are so cute, i had been waiting for the perfect LO's for them. I think these are them. The paper is from the Dollar Tree.

This is my 1st Altered Frame!! I think it came out nice. It is for my girls and will go in their room. The little tag on top says, "Sisters are Special" I am going to have to reprint the picture though, as there are lines through it.

LO that needs ideas...

Okay, so i decided to use these border stickers...Found nice matching paper and put them on. I have this piece of paper in the middle that breaks up the color great, it is pink/green, from Fancy Pants, Key Lime collection...

One of my other passions, sort of...

THese are some items that i embroidered for baby gifts. The top 2 pictures are of a Lovey blanket and the others are burp cloths. I love doing these. Funny thing is, now i take the ribbon from my scrap stash!!

Images for cards....

These are for a card swap of Stamp2Lose. I worked on them last night while watching the olympics and doing an online crop!! I have to get a brown color pencil for the large one. the pine cones need color as does the bird house. I like how these came out. Funny thing is, i was selling off all my stamps at 1 time becaue i did not like doing it, now i do!! Finished cards will be posted at a later time, when they get done!!!

Aug LO #21-25

These LO's are for an album that i am making to give away. They are for Alivia's basketball coach from last winter. She was diagnosed with Breast Cancer during the season.

This LO is for a challenge to do a LO in less than 30 minutes. This took me about 15 with a couple tiny interuptions. It was just a basic LO that is of Me when i got my 1st shoes.

Quick Cards...

These are made with paper scraps from the $$ section at Target!! I love how they look!!!

These are a few cards i made during an online crop. These are made for the paper packs from the Dollar Tree. I did not stamp on them so that i can use them as needed. I will do it when i decide what i will use them for. The Thank you card was just scraps sitting around that i threw together!!
