Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #42 - Anything Goes

Hello again my lovely friends - this is part two of  my Tuesday Post. 

It's also time for this weeks challenge at Tuesday Alchemy.  Once again our design team has made some great projects.  I hope you will check out their blogs as well as join in.  Listed below are the links to our sponsors for this week and each one is giving a $10.00 gift card voucher for one winner.  You can't be one of the winners if you don't join in the challenge so we hope you will jump in and show us what you got!!!  Think of how much fun it would be to do a little shopping.  

I made a small altered album this week.  Actually it was a special order for a young lady who wanted to give her hubby a little something something extra for their wedding anniversary.  She wanted it to be simple and with no fluff.  It was hard letting this one go - I really like it and wanted to keep it for myself.  Isn't that horrible?  :-)

This is a chipboard album and I cut out each piece and rounded the corners after I attached the cardstock.  All she has to do is fill in the blanks and add her own sweet touch.  I can't wait to hear his reaction and I only five more days to wait.  WooHoo!!

That's it for this project.  I appreciate your stopping by for a visit and treasure your comments as well.  Until next time....

Hugs and smiles

    I am back. My laptop had to be repaired yet again! so that was me off the cyber world for a while. I can't believe how many gorgeous makes you managed to make like in a week or has it been longer since it went pear shaped for me. Love your cutie cards from your previous posts and those coasters look brilliant too and of course not forgetting your last creation you made. Totally SUPER. Love it. It looks gorgeous just in black and white.

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…
