Generations Crafting has a wonderful section on the site called Yard Sale...your going to freak when you see the deals! I grabbed these (and all of them! hehe!) stamps and embossed them and added them to the page! Imaginisce Grab Em' Stamps!
Here is a close up of my title. As usual I have no idea what font I used but it did not have a shadow so I just off set another cut in black. That wasn't enough of a color change so I used a grey marker to add a bit more...
I added some stash buttons to the project and also added some detail to some of the circles in the Basic White Sphere with Glossy Accents. There are a few surprises in the circles on this printed paper so the ones that showed got a bit of a highlight with the Glossy Accents. I also added dots in 3's of this to some random circles.
So I guess because my time has been so limited lately, well not even lately, for awhile. I have been doing some more simply pages...like this one. But I have to say that I do like it. I guess thats the joy in scrapping and trying different things and different styles.
Thanks for coming by!!!

The photos are of Scotti and Jordyn at a local BMX bike track. I have done so many bike photos that now I am nervous I scrapped these photos already! LOL! Wouldn't be the first time I've done that though (or the last! LOL!)
Can I tell you all how impressed I am with the Tim Holtz Texture Fades! They are deeply embossed that they just jump off the paper! I do wonder how that will be with certain papers, these were thick enough but they still cracked when embossed. That was fine for this project because the distressing matching the feel.
I finally bought the DCWV Rock Star stack and used those prints for this page. I fussy cut the flocked flower and slid my photo underneathe. I used Basic Grey Granola letter stickers. That was my first time using them and I have to say I was super impressed with the thickness of these. Very easy to use! I gave them a layer of Glossy Accents as well. I like how that looks against the softness of the flocking. Plus because it is a clear medium you could still see the distressing on the white letters.
I had see Jennifer McGuire do some dots on a project and after doing the letters with Glossy Accents, I realized that would be perfect for the dots on this printed paper! IRL this looks amazing! A small detail but very effective!
You can also see here some of the layering. There was a lot of layering in this LO. Because the papers were white cored I distressed with a sanding block to pull out the white in the edges, which also helped enforce the white in the color scheme. I used my border punch but kept my mistakes in punching, fun silly detail.
Thanks for coming by and hope you all have a FUN and SAFE 4th of July!!!!

We actually were able to sleep last night, we got moved to a section with a few kids recovering from heart surgery, so it was pretty quiet. Well very quiet in comparision to the very active ICU part we had been in.
He seems fine still and without too much drama we got the rest of the samples we needed for the rest of the testing.
I feel strange being home. I can imagine what it feels like for someone to come home from a war. You come home and everything is normal except you had just came home from somewhere stressful and you can't forget what you saw.
Anyways, Scotti was happy to see me but my daughter is too busy playing to care. LOL! I did get some kisses but very reluctant ones!
We have a doctors appointment on tuesday morning with our regular peditrican.
The only and only at all "news" we got is that he had had some acid show up in a blood drawl from his first time in the hospital. And that he has not gained weight at the rate that he had before. He's little and thats fine but they want us to work on getting more into him...that and to add butter to some of his meals for the fat! LOL!
We have about 1-2 weeks for the metabolic tests to come back...I asked what they were looking for and they said that they are testing more rare things w/in the system. So I guess we'll see.
Thank you all again and again for your prayers. And I ask that you just keep us in them for a while...and I want to ask you to pray for the other kids that have stays in ICU's. I felt so lucky for us to be going home but I can't begin to tell you how I feel for all the kids that are still there. I can't imagine having gone through this experience without having the other Mothers there. Such amazing, strong and brave women, not to mention some tough kids!
I'll try and post some photos a little later...
xoxo Leah and Cody and family!
