Pretty in Pink

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

I've got my Fitztown DT hat on today and I am sharing an altered small composition I made using one of the gorgeous rose images from Fitztown.


Here's how I make my altered composition books whether they are the large or small ones.
  • I used a small file and lightly sanded the front & back of the book until all the shine is gone. 
  • I added the cardstock to the front and back using glue.
  • I used my bone folder to make sure the cardstock was adhered well.
  • I used Copics to color the roses.
  • Fussy cut out the roses and attached to the front of the composition book with glue.
  • Used my bone folder to make sure the image was adhered well.
  • Added a strand of faux pearls to the left side.
This really is a quick and easy project.  I actually like to make several ahead of time to either give as RAK's or gifts to family, friends or co-workers.

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your feedback and comments.  It means a lot to me.  

There is still plenty of time to join in our challenge which ends of May 4th and the winner will be announced on the 5th.  

By the way the theme this is month is to use Flowers and/or Leaves.

I am also entering this project into the following challenges:


As You Like It Challenge - I love my Alcohol Markers.  They are easy for me to work with and I like how its easy it is to blend the colors.  The colors are so pretty too!!


Have a great day!!

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…

Freshly Baked Cookies

Happy Friday Sweet Friends Today it's a Bestie kind of day!!   I am sharing my DT project which is a cookie recipe using this adorable image by Sherri Baldy. She can be found here in Sherri's Etsy Shop. Bestie Image 051 and I just think she's adorable. I colored her with Copics and used the following colors: B00, 02, 04 (Eyes) C01, 03 (Cookie Tray) E000, 00, 11 (Skin) E21, 23, 25 (Hair) E93, 95, 97, 99 (Shoes) R32, 35, 37 (Hat, Dress, Socks) Y15, 17, 19 (Dress and the heart on her hat) As you can see I added flowers to the recipe itself.  I used a letter template to cut our the letters for the word COOKIES.  I also added some white flowers to the box that she is standing on. I hope you will join in our challenge this month and the link can be found below:

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…
