Banish these evil jelly beans

I mean.. really who can resist?  Colorful, little, sour patch jellybeans? WOW talk about addicting.... I think I actually like these as much as sour patch kids... I really do have a sugar problem! lol

On to what this little bowl of color inspired me to make... I played around with some ink, some flowers and some yummy bright colors to get this layout.
I seriously have very vivid dreams... pretty colorful, not just the hues of colors, but elaborate, story filled experiences. I thought this would make a great idea for a scrapbook page.
I found some older Prima paper and paired it with some distressing and ink and lots and lots of gorgeous bright Prima flowers.. Yum... reminds me of this candy...

Peace and sweet dreams,

Just the Album

I created this pretty album using a combination of my favorite things... subtle colors, Prima goodies, vintage ribbons, K and Co embellishments, chunky board book chipboard, layers and layers of just goodies.. I followed no rules, did some painting, some inking, some original textures with absolutely NO plan in mind for this book... just a simple creation of love. It sits in my studio open for all to enjoy... no written words, no pictures, just the art of the book to fondle, turning the pages and exploring all the unique pages with every turn...
Sometimes, its just as simple as this....

Couch ridden

I woke up Monday with a horrible cold and it just overcame me completely. It quickly turned into more flu like symptoms and knocked me out these last few days. Erin was off of school today and was trying to help me get Ryan ready for school (Even though she is 22 months younger than her brother, she is a great help as Ryan needs such one to one assistance with such simple matters)  She fell down onto a drawer that was left open and bruised her little coccyx (bum... tailbone) poor little girl... so we have Ryan who needs special assistance with EVERYTHING... a very ill momma and a baby girl scooting around with a sore behind and needs assistance standing, sitting... Oh my.. we are a mess!  lol

I am sharing some Easter cards today that will be showing in my ETSY shop a bit later... if I stay awake long enough to list them ... HA...

stay tuned ;)
