My little Punk Rocker

It's been quite a while since my last post, and I do apologize. Life has been pretty busy. I'm trying to juggle kids, exercise, eating healthier (which does take up a bit more time than just winging it), a new job and trying to become more organized at the same time! But it's been paying off. I've lost almost 17lbs, and my house has never been cleaner! Anyway, I've finally found some time to get downstairs and do some creating, and here's what I've come up with:



here's a few close ups...





And just for fun, I think I scrapbook like a tornado...here's the aftermath! lol


I'm entering this page into the challenge at Frosted Designs. They're doing a recipe challenge. You have to use 3 patterned papers, 2 fonts and 1 journaling tag. It's also being entered into the challenge at Do You Stack Up Their challenge is "Just Green It". It's also going into the challenge at Punky Scraps, another recipe challenge to use 3 out of 5 of these things: distressing, misting, black & white photos flowers or sparkly things.

here's what I used: PP: Fancy Pants, Cosmo Cricket, Echo Park, Bo Bunny. Cardstock: coredinations, Die Cut scallop circle and paint, Making Memories. Tim Holts: embossing folder, tissue tape, mini paper clips, distress inks, grungeboard, die cutting machine and dies (elegant flourishes). Basic Grey letter stickers, Quickutz alphabet (Katie), Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Ranger Distress Crackle Paint, Bo Bunny Buttons, CTMH Sanders, Cropodile, Zig Pen, and unknown journaling tag.

Thanks for checking out my blog!!

This is such a cool LO. I love the wings and heart. All of the colors are amazing. Super cute pics too. I think we scrap alike. My area is always so messy when I am done. But if it gets an outcome like this... well worth it!

Thanks so much for playing along at Frosted Designs this week.
