I love using chipboard on my projects. It is so easy to alter whether you paint it, glitter it or leave it natural it just adds the perfect dimension to a layout. So when I saw that Magistical Memories was having a contest using a sketch and chipboard I was like why not? Here is my layout using there sketch thanks for looking !!!!

I did it!

I have not done this in a long time, but I took the plunge and decided to go out for Fancy Pants Design Team Call! I was told about the DT Call through a phone conversation, and asked when is it over? Tomorrow oh no I'm not going to try out, that is not enough time for me to get something done, but then yesterday at 6:00pm I thought you know what I'm going to do it. I am going to sit a my scrap desk look for some Fancy Pants pattern paper and I am going to create. I will tell you what the best part of these few hours of my me time. I was quickly inspired by the Vintage Valentine line, now I have worked with it before but that was 6 months ago. I found the right photo and began my work, my love for distressing had a few tears in the paper but made that work in the end I truly love this titled Dream. A little girls dream to begin the journey of dance the anticipation of learning her new steps, meeting her new friends. This little girl is Elisa my baby girl who just loves to dream a little dream and dance her little heart.

I was so inspired to create that I went into that negative space yes I did it! OMG and can I say I just loved it. Love the simplicity of it. The photos are old when Elisa was 3 look at those chubby little cheeks.

Had a scrap so you know to try my hand at my making a card and love it too! So even if I don't make the team, the thrill of the call inspired me to CREATE!!!!!!

got a photo of Elisa on her first day of school, right outside I love the brick wall at her school. So she sees my camera and this was our conversation.
Elisa : Mom really?
Mom: I said yes I didn't take a picture this morning.
Elisa:  fine!
gives me this whiny look. I take the picture delete it.
Mom: come on please smile
Elisa: I don't want to!
Mom: I am taking you to IHOP
Elisa: Okay

Now she puts on this big smile and it's just perfect! She had a wonderful day and most of all she likes her teacher as do I. thanks for looking

First Day of School

So today is the first official day of Public Schools here in NYC. My baby girl is now in kindergarten and can you believe that me the scrapper did not take a picture! I was in such a rush, Christopher's bus was late so he had to meet us at Elisa's school. I wanted to make sure Elisa ate, and that everything was right in her back. I'll be picking her up at 11am and I know she will tell me all about her day. No School tomorrow or Friday already can you believe that then classes resume on Monday. So next week I'll be home alone and guess what I'll be doing in this peace and quiet environment SCRAPPING!!! WOO HOO!!! today I'll relax for 2 hours to some light chores then pick up Elisa and take her to IHOP!!!

On another note, Timeless Daydreams is having a 4 week back to school contest, head on over there and sign up!  Can't wait to see you there!!!
