My Joy and my Heart's delight!

Hi everyone! another post this week!!!
I was inspired by the colors in CSI's case file this week
it looks so pretty to my eyes
and CC's sketch this week was very lovely so I combined the 2
Using CSI specifications I needed several things besides the 5 colors
for my evidence I used
snowflakes, circular objects, dry embossing
I sanded the bottom of my "snow globe"
I hope you remeber my Luna, sweetheart of mine, guess I am in a snowglobe mode, LOL
She was wearing a Pink bow on Christmas Eve and was quietly resting in one of my cushions.
next evidence:
glitter,doodling/ pen work
I then gave my snowflakes some movement by doodling with a glue pen and adhering silver glitter on top, yum!
For my testimony I chose to work with a prompt from this site
I chose prompt #7. What I want for Christmas this year
You see my DD had never made a Christmas list before, EVER...
So Santa was good to her and gave her the doll of her wishes
"She’s a determined girl who uses her strengths to
turn challenges into triumphs—in the gym and at school"
And the full page!

Thanks so much for visiting!!!


Favorite Tea Room Project

Hi everyone it's Christmas Eve and I wanted to take the time to wish all of you a beautiful Christmas with your loved ones! This week at TSTR they want us to share our favorite project from any of the challenges in 2012
Well this one is my favorite for many reasons, here's my top 5
1.I absolutely love Christmas
2.It's pink
3.I got to decorate a Christmas tree again ;)
4.It was a special present I created for my mom's birthday this year
5. It gave me a ton of inspiration to even create a template.   You see after making it into a card I wanted something more, it could be a canvas for your hall or it could be a hidden box for a present.
PS I also made it into my blog header 'cause I loved it soooo much!
the tree
the box
the full package
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!



Week #144 - E.T.
Hi everyone it's been a while I know so much has been going one I have neglected the blog for a while.  But I am back from all the recent happenings ready to play and share.  This is so inspiring that I just had to play
I feel this should be my parlor, so pinky, shabby and girly
So I made me a little house, a tiny aqua one, shaded by a sweet pink tree dressed in snow and some more silver glitter and tinsel, hey a girl's gotta dream...
then I nested everything in a gorgeous glass dome
and heres my sweet little snow globe for the TSTR girls!
the house was built out of a set of mini houses by Maya Road
made 3 d with extra chipboard

the joy banner is a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and the alphas are MM
the base is a Maya Road wooden spool painted cream

the glass globe, tinsel and tree are Melissa Frances
This was a Joy to put together
Here's a bit of where I was this past 2 wks:
We had a mother daughter grand time at the big apple!!!
Times Square, Rockettes Christmas Spectacular, Ricky Martin @ Evita!!!
Skating in Central Park, playing at the Big Piano @ FAO and visiting the Empire State Bldg
among other things

Then I had Miss M's modeling graduation where she shined bright like a diamond, as the song says.

She performed as Katy Perry singing California Girls and it was AWESOME!!!

as you can imagine I was beading and sewing non stop for 1 week with mom's help of course.
We got to visit Moods in NYC where we felt like the Project Runway gals and bought the fabrics I used for her final dress.
Thanks for stopping by I missed you
