Tim Holtz Configurations tray.........

Patti and I are doing an all day class on the 17th for this Configurations tray.  We needed an example to put out so we both took one home to work on.  Here's mine.  I'm hoping she did one, too!!!!!!  These are pix of my mom, her sisters and brothers and some of her friends.

And here is my Sherlock BBC version collage that I did today.

Zutter smash album!

Well, Patti and I decided to buy a Zutter binder.  I've been wanting to make a smash type album so this was the perfect opportunity.  My sister and I are going to England for her 50th birthday in Sept. and I wanted to make a 50 things to do in London album.  I wrote out 50 things to do around London and England when we get there we will do the things and I will take a photo for the album!  It should be fun.  Anyway, I got the album all put together but not embellished yet.  Here's a few pix.
I made a few mistakes and there are several pages I couldn't use.  The directions for this are a bit weird so I just winged it.  It turned out pretty good.  The next one will be better.

Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

I love using Graphic 45 papers.  I love the vintage look and I love how no matter what line you use you're able to go back and use one of the other lines and it will always match.  I think G45 was my first really foray into being creative.  I've been scrapbooking for ages but it wasn't until I picked up Fashionista that I really found a way to express what I wanted to say.
 This is a little accordion Steampunk album I did.

This is a circus album I did.
And a Halloween album.
Stacking wooden boxes.

An altered cigar box.
A steampunk shadow box.
I really love steampunk.  It kinda has everything I enjoy.

Fancrafts BBC Sherlock & Hawaii Five-0

Doing some fancrafting.  I bought this Hawaiian Surf sign at Goodwill then added a small shadow box to hold a  photo and maybe some shells from the beach. 
This one is based on the BBC series Sherlock.  I used a frame I got at Goodwill, some really neat scrapbook paper, an old dictionary page and a copy of Turner's painting of the Falls, some wings and letters cut out by my cricut.  I like the way it turned out.
