Hello and time for a new challenge at The Paper Mixing Bowl . This month we have cooked up a sensational recipe!!! Just look what we have...

So what are ya waiting for!! Get scrap cooking. This was a fun recipe to follow and I love the greens. Here is what I cooked:
These pictures were taken by my sweet friend ozmagi. I had the pleasure of meeting here when I was visiting Australia. Faye, Magi and I all got to scrap together and it was amazing. I am hoping one day they can make here to the US!!!
Now in my neck of the woods we frequently see deer....not in Aussie...you see Kangaroo's! It was awesome to see these beautiful animals hopping around. Australia was beautiful and there are more pics to come. Thanks a bunch for stopping by!

2 challenges done!

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I managed to get 2 challenges in one layout which makes me happy. I don't get a whole lot of time to scrap for my self. So the challenges are:
I  did a layout of my Mom from her 1st communion so this was in the early 1930's. I just love the clothes from that period. I used some Pion and Kasiercraft papers, handmade the big flower, and the wonderful embellies Krissy puts in a Swirlydoos kit.
I did want to thank all of you out there for all the inspiration I get from you. So thank you!!!
I used acrylic paint on the flower and stickles on the leaves. Did some fussy cutting and always use ink!!
Just another close up. I just love my Mom's hairdo. I think it is just beautiful. She looks so cute. Gosh I miss that woman!!!! Thank you for stopping by!

"Funtoolas" Vintage Treasures, July Kit

Introducing Old world charm with a victorian edge in our July kit, "Vintage Treasures." Lovely lace and a touch of pearls through flourishing florals in this elegant collection, as gorgeous red and turquoise pop with accents of midnight black. A Fabulous kit with so many possibilities!!

 Here is a layout I have made from the kit. Everything is from the kit. I have added some gesso and used a feather  mask. This kit was so much fun to craft with. Beautiful colors and embellies. I cut out the butterflies from some of the paper, added some ink and bling.
 Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate it. Have a wonderful week!!!!
