Altered Fabric Journal (Chipboard)

Happy Monday my Dear Sweet Friends - I hope you had a fabulous weekend!!  It was a quiet one for me and I was able to get some rest and finish working on this new project (which I actually started a while ago but wasn't able to complete).  

 I absolutely love the sentiment and find it is so true in my own life for over 20 years now.  Which makes this soon to be journal extra special to me.  There are no inside pages yet but I wanted to share the journal itself and get my feet wet by entering a couple of challenges this week.  

I made the journal from scratch using heavy chipboard and covered it with actual fabric with adhesive on the back.  I believe its from DCWV.  It was a little tricky to work with and yet great I didn't have to use any other adhesive.  As you can tell I used lots of bling, pearls, lace, charms and inked the edges to give it the total shabby chic look.  The journal measures 5" x 7".  

If you have any questions just let me know.  

As always, THANK YOU for taking the time to stop by and leaving me such sweet comments.  It really means a lot to me.

I also came across this amazing blog from a very talented woman named Lori and she is having a $30.00 Saturated Canary giveaway.  Her coloring is FABULOUS!!!!  Here's the link and it ends August 15th.

  I also checked out a few more of my favorite blogs today and found a great give-away if you are interested in submitting your link.  The products are gorgeous!!

I am going to enter my new journal project into the following challenges:


  1. WOW! Beautiful cover. This is amazing, and I pray the journal will be a blessing for you as you fill the pages.

  2. Oh my goodness, that front page of your soon to be Journal with pages is MAGNIFICENT. Consider your feet wet. Love the color, bling ribbon and charms.

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…
