Another toot!

Hi there!

Just a short post to announce that, after a 6 month absence, I'm back on the
Sassy Lil' Sketches DT! Yay! Cherie's sketches are always inspiring, so I can't wait until August to get started! There are a few changes this time around on the blog. Layout sketches will be revealed on Tuesdays and card sketches on Thursdays. There will also be a new "Switch It Up" team who will reveal their layouts on Saturdays. I'll be revealing on the third Saturdays of the month. So lots of fun stuff ahead!

In the meantime, there are already 2 great sketches out this month, with 2 more still to come! Go check them out here for a chance to win a prize from
Tally Scrapper or Sassy Studio Designs!

Happy scrapping!


This is a "Cats" post of Scrap.Cats.Love.!

Hi there!

Nothing scrappy to share with you yet. I'm working on my layout for the
Sassy Lil' Sketches e-book, which is top-secret work! lol! But I do have some kitty news that I wanted to share!

After Chipper passed away last February, at the wise old age of 18 (yep! I was lucky to have him in my life for a long time!), I thought it would be nice to see Sable and Chipper together again. So I decided that it was time to finally get a portrait done of my angel kitties!

I had been wanting for a very long time to get a pet portrait done of my two special kitties, Sable and Chipper, whom I adopted as free kittens in a newspaper ad back in 1993. But I never found the "right" artist, until I came across
Susan Faye's work on her blog and in her Etsy shop. I love her cute, pretty, colorful, whimsical style!

So here it is, my pet portrait! I love it!! It will be hanging in my scrap room, where Chipper used to hang out in all the time when I was working in there!

If you want to check out more of Susan Faye's art, go over to her blog,
365 Cat Ladies and Friends where there's a post about my kitties today! You'll find much more than cats too! There are bunnies and birds, pretty flowers, jewelry, prints, bookmarks and lots more... even dolls! (Oh, and if you stop by her Cafe Press shop, you'll find tons of t-shirts, mugs, calendars, aprons, totes...)

Here are a few pictures of my pretty angel kitties to finish off this post. Thanks for stopping by and tolerating my "crazy cat lady" post! ;)


A new layout, a toot and a giveaway!


Here's my latest LO. It's my first page about our trip to Cuba last winter. It was my first time going south for the winter... and I loved it! I've never been a "beach person", so I didn't think it would be my thing. Don't get me wrong, I knew that I was going to enjoy it, but I didn't think I was going to REALLY like it! It felt pretty surreal swimming in the ocean in January when you just left snow behind you at home!

It's based on this sketch from
Sassy Lil' Sketches. I love muli-photo sketches!

I went with bright colors to go with the gorgeous color of the water over there! I used
Tattered Angels "Glimmer Glass" as black accents. I faux-stitched around the page in black also. I stamped little tags for my journaling. I used bling to simulate waves under the palm tree, and added a few cute fish glass beads that I found on clearance at an art store.

Now for my toot!
Sassy Lil' Sketches will be producing an e-book, and I've been chosen as a designer! I'm very excited to be part of this project! I'll keep you posted when it's all done and ready to go!

And the giveaway...
Purple Pumpkin is having a huge giveaway to celebrate their first year! There's a total of $100 in vouchers to the store to be won! The winners will be announced on July 22nd, so go check it out! You know you can't resist these cute buttons and embellies!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping!
