Whale of a Memory
Well January was something else! With the weather feeling totally like Spring, I'm left feeling a little confused! LOL! But with that warm weather, I was crafting my butt off and reorganizing in the house. I'm curious to see what February brings!
It's my month to host at Stuck on U Sketches and I found this nice little sketch from Scrapbooks, Etc magazine. Check it out over at the SOUS blog!
Too bad my photos aren't that nice...any of you totally grossed out? Have you even really looked yet? Maybe you shouldn't! LOL!
Last October we visited our favorite local beaches for our Fall camping trip and we happened to be staying right down the road from a whale that washed ashore. This was for sure a once in a life time experience! The photo of Scotti and Jordyn is pretty awesome because it was windy and really stinky...hence, their faces! LOL!
This project is full of distressing, inking, sprays, glitter and such...it really was a fun one to put together!
Oh no, I totally forget which cart this cutie whale came from, maybe Just Because Cards? He was cut using the Imagine and choosing their pattern paper, as well as the waves from Zoobaloo. Both showing that you can cut from old carts but use their prints and colors. My title was 3 fonts from my cart collection and cut from the Expression.
My beautiful shells were also cut from the Imagine. I almost find the machine worth using just because you can skip searching for coordinating colors. I just choose 3 colors for my 3 different shells and I was done! No searching through my scraps! I did some inking with several distress ink shades on these, sprayed with Perfect Pearls and rubbed on Liquid Pearls also. You can see the water marks well on this shell....they really turned out neat IRL!
I also implore you to go visit Stuck on U Sketches because we have a bit of an announcement...though I think I'll let you read it there as its too sad to have to post twice....
