A very exciting piece of news in my scrappy world!! I finally decided to get brave and apply for a DT. I was so excited to learn yesterday that I was invited to design for Creative Scrappers!! You can see the new team here. So, I am still in shock and am excited and scared at the same time as this is a first for me. LOL I can't wait to get started!! I have to thank my bloggy friends who have been encouraging me to apply for a DT. You know who you guys are!!! :)
On the scrappy front, here is another LO done using my Paper Poppy kit! I still have enough for one more!! Yay!! I'm trying to discipline myself not to start another LO because I really need to clean my house. It is in a sad state as I am enjoying not having to have it in "showing" order! No one would buy this place if they saw it today!! ;)
This is my brother Andrew's family!! I was so happy to be able to scrap this photo of the three of them. :) I started this LO with the vision of it being yellows and blue. I soon realized that the yellow paper I had planned on using would not show up well against the white background. That is when I noticed the red paper from the Jillibean line! The pops of red are my favourite part of the LO!
I fancy cut the large butterfly. The small butterfly is a chipboard piece painted with distress crackle paint. I got the idea from one of Aphra's LO. First time using this product and I really liked the result.
I used this sketch by Julie Bonner.
Before leaving I just have to share this photo of this sweet little Sparrow!
I found him sitting on my back deck this morning. He is definitely young but has already lost his downy new baby look. I was worried that he was injured at first. After quite some time he did fly quite low to the ground and hide in one of the bushes. I'm hoping that he doesn't have a wing injury. The chances of survival for these little ones is never great. Needless to say, Mo will be kept inside today. Oh my, I don't even want to think of it. Tonight we will take a look and if we can find him and he appears in distress, Rob will end his suffering. I hate to see these little creatures die a slow and painful death. :( We brought an injured baby Robin to the emergency vet in downtown Edmonton, years ago, and they looked at me like I was a total crazy lady!!! :(
Hope everyone is having a great day and I'll keep you posted on my new adventure with the DT!!! :)
Happy Scrapping!! Jen
