LO Inspired by Luvleescrappin

So, I found this video on YouTube and was awestruck by how awesome it was.  I wanted to try one of my own.  I've NEVER done anything like it before, so I thought it'd be fun.  So, here is a link to the first video of the series, and pics of my project...   ~Sweet November~

Here is my version...SOOOOOOOO not the same, but not bad for a first timer I think.

Here is my beginnings after I glued down all the pieces I wanted and then Mod Podged and Gesso'ed the crap out of EVERYTHING.... Really kind of fun.

 I had a blast finding all these different little pieces
I, of course, had to add an Army button from one of our dress uniforms.  We have so many!
And here is what it looks like all finished.  I will be framing it a little later on today.  I will add a photo afterwards.

Just a quick announcement....  There's a GREAT giveaway happening right now over at  Blue Fern Studios.  They're giving away some awesome chipboard pieces.  They're absolutely beautiful!  You've got to go check them out and sign up for the giveaway!  Have fun!


Well, it looks like I'm finally starting to get back into the swing of things.  I've started scrappin' again, doing challenges on, and making my husband crazy by altering everything I can get my hands on.  I've very recently been inspired by a video I watched made by luvleescrappin.  I'm sooo excited to try her technique on a LO.  Hopefully it will turn out ok.  I will post pictures asap!!  Now, time to get caught up on everyone else's

I'm Back and Draggin' Butt!!!

Well, it's good to officially be back, but man do I feel lost in the sauce.  I feel like I've missed sooo much!  Now that I've settled back into normal life, I've realized that I've been out of the loop for so long, I have no mojo!!!  What does a girl do?
