Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #13: Mother Dear

Today is such an exciting day!!  I can finally share I am now part of the Tuesday Alchemy Design Team.  I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing and talented group of women.  I hope you will check out all their blogs as well as becoming a part of the Tuesday Alchemy community if you haven't done so already.

This weeks challenge is called Mother, Dear and this is my first project submitted as a design team member.   I hope you will consider submitting your own project for this challenge.

The canvases are 5" x 5" and I painted them white.  Added some gorgeous paper to the front, back and inside.  Of course I had to add as much bling as possible by using stickles, strands of pearls, an elegant black button, along with lace and ric rac.  I love the colors and the photo is of myself and my two amazing daughters when they surprised me with a trip to Disneyland for my 50th birthday.  We had so much fun.  

Thanks for looking and I hope you will visit again soon as I am putting together my first blog give away.  Have a blessed day!!!

I have also submitted this project to the following blogs:

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
