So I had to get some swaps done this weekend - I started of with making an altered canvas. And this one is going all the way to Pakistan! It is also going to be my November design team post. So I won't share the whole thing now, but here are some sneak peaks.

I will post more on this project next month, but till then stay crafty my peeps.

Had a good start to my weekend. I went to another paint night - this time hosted by Chinchaga Adult Learning Centre. It was a lot of fun. I think I am getting better at this painting thing too - it was a lot of fun and it seemed to come pretty easy. Natalie was also a good teacher. Check out my new painting!

This was what we got when we got to class - a black canvas and some paint

We used the blue in several shades to make the background  and the vase. We then used white for the first layer of the flowers - to make sue they didn't disappear into the black background. I have to say I was quite happy with the flowers I made. I am getting better at this drawing thing!

And this is the finished painting. I really like how it came out. This was a totally fun event.

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

I was so tired from my weekend I realized I forgot to post a few things! As well as the other projects I posted before, I also got a couple tags done. These were ones I had started I have no idea when - I have been dragging them around for awhile waiting for a chance to finish them. Very happy with how they turned out!

Not to mention, I forgot to show the prize that I won! I posted it to Facebook and then realized - DANG my parents are gonna see this! LOL But what can I say, it was that kinda weekend!!

So till next time - stay crafty my peeps!

The other project I got finished this weekend was my design team project for Mixed Media Mojo Challenges. The theme this month was haunted with the twist of zombies. This is what I came up with.

The technique I used for this tag was wrinkling a paper bag that I then attached to the tag, then painted orange. Once the paint was dry I brushed the entire tag with black ink. Finishing touches were adding the chipboard zombies and the words. A fun and easy tag for this months project!

And the best part? The chipboard pieces are from a Canadian company called Southern Ridge Trading Co. Make sure you check them out!!

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!


I cannot believe how much I actually got done at this crop! Even on the last day - which is only a few hours and mostly taken up with visiting. I got this layout done.

It was really a fun weekend. One of the things the organizers did was give us all a puzzle piece that everyone decorated as they saw fit. Then the put it together and gave it away as a final prize. I didn't win it, but it sure turned out great!

But then it was time to pack up and leave. SAD! :(

But I did have a blast with my posse!!

So another crafty weekend came to an end. Now I have to sort everything and get myself organized for the croptacular in two weeks. Not to mention get some swaps I am in finished. Gonna be a crazy few weeks. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So, day two of our crop was as much fun as day one! These gals really know how to have a good time. I got my big Moleskin A3 journal started - Paula and I worked on it together, but since it had to have so much drying time, didn't get much done on it. But I did get it broken in!

And of course, we had a LOT of fun, considering that they gave us all wine!!!

We made ours into spritzers. Yummy!!!

And the group photo turned out so cool - the fall colours made for such a fun photo.

I - of course - had to scrap this!!

I got quite a bit done too - I can't show one project as it is for a contest, but here is some of the other stuff I got done day two:

It is easy to scrapbook my grand kids when they are so stinking cute!!

And I did more work on the ATC's I started at the PMS crop. I prepped them first - and then check out the ones I finished.

All in all, a pretty fab say! We really had a blast! So till next time and more adventures, stay crafty my peeps!
