Hello my dear sweet blogging friends -

Wow, amazed, excited, happy, stunned, delighted and overjoyed are only a few of the words which describe how honored I am to be have been awarded the Liebster Award by Karon Hughes.

This has been a challenging but also exciting process - it was so incredibly hard to choose just 5 of you.  With all the said - here are my five choices:


Kim at Tillys Crafts has an amazing blog. I find her work inspiring, her coloring is wonderful and love her motto - "So many crafts, so little time" and of course Tilly her four legged friend is a cutie.  

Alison at Words and Pictures has a wonderful blog - I admire her style, creativity and inspires me to step further out of my comfort zone.

Michaela at Michaela's Blog - her coloring is amazing, love her attention to detail and her style.

Elaine at Ellapu Blog - love her mix of styles and her coloring is wonderful.

Eileen at Love in Envelope Blog - has shown me the beauty and talent of paper quilling.  Her amazing creations have inspired me to jump in and learn this technique.

Ladies - you are all so amazing, talented and creative.  Thank you all for your inspiration and wonderful blogs.  Congratulations to all of you.

I hope everyone will check out their blogs and take a look for yourselves.  It was a really touch choice.  

Many hugs and smiles

Laine

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…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.

Here is the link to Morgan's Facebook Group:
