"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

Happy Saturday!!! Here's a little card for today's RetroSketch! It's based on a card of Kasia's that I just love! I wanted to use this PTI picket fence die - so I reached for 2 older sets from the Alley Way Stamps - Tweet Spots mini set and Chatterbox.


Hope you can play along this week!



Happy Friday! This is post #3 for me today! We are starting a new challenge over at A Day For Daisies' blog today and showing off some of the DT's favorite images - mine is called Peacock Magic (well - ONE of mine anyway...) The challenge is ti use something shiny on your project - here I've used shiny sequins and pearlescent watercolors. They are just a cheap student set, but they are so fun!!!
Here's a closer look at the shimmer of pearlescent opaque watercolors... they are by Enesco.

Big hugs!!!

DREAMS & UNICORNS / DB - "Tags"...

Hello, this is my second post for the day! The theme this week over at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog is to make a tag! I love tags and rarely make them! I have been dying to use this adorable little Unicorn Girl image. The sentiment says... "Dreams are the playground of unicorns."

There's a joke in one of my CT's that I "LOVE" unicorns... and actually I now do a little, strangely enough. People are always posting unicorns pics and tagging me. I actually didn't care for them one way or another when the joke began - but they are growing on me! It all started with a conversation about fantasy scrapping and me saying I hated it. One of the ladies decided to scrap a layout of me as a unicorn to change my mind... and here it is. Jennifer Valencia it's all your fault!

Thanks for stopping by!

GOOD JOB / TAWS Be Inspired #33...

Happy Friday! We are at a wedding this weekend, my sweet cousin Robert is marrying his beautiful bride tomorrow! Alex and Maisie are in the wedding as the ring-bearer and flower girl, so we've been hyping it up to them, hoping it will all go smoothly. With all the wedding talk, apparently Alex has been thinking about it a great deal...

Alex: "I wish I had gotten married."
Me: "It's okay, you need to finish school first..."
Alex: "You're right mom, I will!"

Anyway on to the card.... I saw this inspiration for the TAWS Be Inspired Challenge and knew I wanted to use the pencil from Learning Curve - it's so awesome! I also used twine to mimic the packaging of the photo.

Have a happy day!


IT FITS / Simple Scrapper...

Over the next couple days I am going to post some scrap layouts that I have made this month... here's one of Alex. He brought out all these blocks into the living room and told me they were a puzzle. I didn't think so, but a few minutes later he had pieced the all together! He's so smart!
