The Picture is my Daughter Serena and her Best Friend Iastha. They are Seniors in High School this year and will graduate in June.  They had pictures taken in their Traditional Ribbon Dresses. The theme  Song from the movie seemed so appropriate. They are most likely going to different schools.  I know they are worried. But I know true friendships don't fade away.  They are teenagers. They are Jocks, Princesses, Nerds, Basketcases and Criminals ( bad ones they got caught sneaking out of the house once) All rolled in to Beautiful packages and they are preparing to head out into the world. Scary and exciting at the same time.

Please join us at Red Carpet Studio and link your Creation inspired by The Breakfast Club Movie.

The page will also be entered at Scrap Africa. Recycle Challenge. The gauze is from my home care nurse the package was open but unused (he was going to throw it away) and he thought I was crazy when I asked for it. I told him I would not use it medically but could Reuse it creatively in my scrapbooking.  The green doily at the bottom is from a local restaurant it was under my dessert( I used mist on it). and the white die cut doily was a dud that was in the garbage I pulled it back out and cut it in half and let the part that worked stick out.

10 of my favorite Scrapbook pages using Chipboard pieces

I decided to try out for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard Design Team. Here are 10 Layouts that have Chipboard on them.
Love Grows 
Heart Chipboard pieces. I painted Chipboard pieces with Glimmer mist.
                                                           Our Story
                                I used chalk ink on Naked chipboard  Heart Shape.
                                                  From This Moment on
                                Left Heart shape in natural state
I painted Chipboard with copper acrylic paint then applied gesso and rubbed some off to reveal some of the copper color.
                                                         Make a Wish
                              I painted the chipboard with  Green distress stain

                                I painted the frame with gesso and applied chalk ink

                                Chipboard letters are stamped with white gesso
                             The Chipboard Cage is painted with white picket fence crackle paint.
                            The Window is painted with white Gesso then stamped with a script stamp
                             and then I used Chalk ink to distress. The image has Crackle paint

                                The fine chippie has Green distress stain added

I know I have other pages I have used Chipboard on but these pages are on the computer I am using.  I have so many favorites it is hard to pick just 10.  Not so much because of my work but because of my subjects.  Some of these where for Challenges, some made for Design Team work and some made just for me.    I was having a couple issues with blogger that I could just not fix.  But I tried to get it to look ok.  Blogger just wasn't playing fair. lol.

Happy New Year! I have some Scrappy News.

Good Morning!  Thought I would do a Saturday Morning post.  I am back to work and the holiday Season is over and time to get back to normal. We are in a deep freeze here in Akwesasne but warming up today -21 degrees Celsius. Great day to stay inside and scrap.

 I have 2 announcements.  I had mentioned earlier that Boy Meets Girl will be ending after January.  I am sad to see it go. But when one door closes one door opens.  I am also Happy to be joining Let's Get Sketchy Design Team.  The girls are making room for 3 of us to join. I will be on Team B.

My Second announcement is that I will be part of Ann Butler's First Design Team. Follow the link to see the official announcement on Ann's Blog.  Creativity Stirs the soul. The term starts in February to give Ann and Lisa time to get ready for CHA and prepare our Design Team kits. I am so excited and can't wait to get started.

 2014 is starting off Creatively just the way I like it. It is going to be a Great Year!
