Just be you - September SATW

Here’s my entry for the September Scrap Around theWorld mood board.
I'm still digging the green/brown/yellow combo from this 7 Dots collection.
I also like how the embossed feather chippie turned out ;)

Here's a close-up.

And here's the moodboard. I was inspired by the quote.
I want my kids to be moved by the littlest details that surround them every day.

Bliss - W&P August

My son was out with friends the day before school started.
(School started for him August 13!)
I asked him to send me a photo/selfie when he was out.
This is the photo he sent me.
And the end of that drink is what I think the Sunday of Summer must have felt like for him.

This is my entry for the August Words & Paintery Challenge.

bling bling - W&P March

My brother took me to my very first concert. It was Bruce Springsteen and I was just twelve years old. I am happy to enter the March Words & Paintery Challenge with this LO of my son Johan as a younger boy. The inspiration comes from the colors for the month and Bruce’s song, Badlands. I went from the line that reads “poor man wanna be rich,” and I used this photo of Johan wearing his cousin’s hat with the bling on it. I know it made Johan feel like a king!
...and a close-up...
...and the inspiration from W&P...

The Dusty Attic - March

I’m entering the Dusty Attic Challenge this month with this LO. I’ve used a lovely Long Stem Flower DA chip that’s been watercolored. From the mood board I used the splashes as well as the pinks and purples. The title is from a Bruno Mars song because this LO is of my niece, Lenora, who likes him a LOT. I also made this LO of her because she’s no longer the little girl in the photo. She’s now a grown and hopeful college girl and I admire her so much for how beautiful she is inside and out. She’s a strong woman with her feet firmly planted on the ground and a vibrant and humble soul who has overcome so much to earn everything she has. She takes nothing for granted and her faith and perseverance are the reason I look up to her.

going up? - W & P February

Here’s a LO of my son Emilio as a younger boy at the ruins of Teotihuacán outside of Mexico City. I’m entering the “Embrace the Past” Challenge at Words & Paintery with this. My son was mystified and excited to visit this part of his heritage (from way, way back). Climbing the pyramids was one of the most exciting parts of the visit to this magical place.

...a couple of close-ups...

And here's the fresh and citrusy moodboard at Words & Paintery.

CSI CC-4 - Magic

This is my entry for CSI Collaboration Case CC-4.
This is one of my older son’s first Christmases.
and a close-up

I’ve used the inspiration word “Celebrate” for the Testimony with my journaling below the photo: Thankful for being able to watch you enjoy and celebrate the magic of the season.
For the Evidence I’ve stamped light gray snowflakes, stenciled some stars with texture paste and made the title with glitter alphas.
All of the colors were used for the Scheme.
And here is the wintery inspiration board.
