Butterfly Love...

Hello Ladies
While looking through my paper I 
came upon my DCWV Mariposa stack.
Love that collection as most of you do also.
I knew I had to create a card with
it. So I started cutting out
butterflies and this is what I ended up
with. I love how it came out.
Hope you do to.

Hi Ladies, I guess I'm getting my crafting mojo
back this is the second card since yesterday
afternoon. I colored her with my Copic
and Spectrum noir markers. I challenged myself
not to use any flowers on this card but 
as you can see lol i had to use one.
You all know I love my flowers.
I used a banner that Jules sent to me.
Butterflies, around the page punch by Martha
Stewart, some white lace, seam binding ribbon,
My Minds Eye papers and 
a Saturated Canary Image.

Altered Box

Hi ladies today I'm here to share a 
Altered Box that I created for my sons 
girlfriend Jesse. I also created  a mini album
that fits inside but I'm not done with 
that yet, I'll post photos when I am finished
with it. I've had this old box for a long
time, saving it for a special project
and this was it. I wanted it to be
used for this project, hope you all love it
as much as I do. I used The Paper studio papers,
WOC flowers, Prima bling, handmade 
flower in the center, ribbon, pearl, doily,
flat back pearl trim and metal corners.

Creative Bloggers Hop

I was invited by Kristina (Craftypaws) to participate in the Creative Bloggers Hop!
The Creative Blogger Hop is a continuous hop every Monday with a host of inspirational bloggers taking part every week.
The creative  blogger selected answers some questions related to their style and creative process.
They may share how they get their creative mojo or share some little tip with you!
In turn, they select 3 Bloggers that have been a source of inspiration to them
and that they would like to showcase and feature.

What Am I Working On At The Moment?

Right now I am working on a altered box with a 
matching Mini album inside for my sons girlfriend.
I can't wait until it's finished so I can watch her
face when she gets it. I also have a small
mini album started that I am going to finish when
I'm done with the altered box.

How Does My Work Differ From Others In My Genre?

I'm not sure that its all that different I do however
prefer a clean and simple style. I don't usually
load my projects with to much stuff. I don't stick to
one style, I like working with shabby, clean and simple
and vintage. 

Why Do I Write/Craft What I Do?

 I craft as a way to relax. When I'm crafting
my problems disappear and I don't
think about what is happening in the world.
Its my little bit of heaven on earth and I Love it.
I also love the look on someones face
when I give them something
I created with my own two hands.
I craft what I do simply because I love it.

How Does My Creative Process Work?

 It all depends on what I'm making. If I'm making
a card my process starts with the digital image or stamp.
I pick out the image I want to use, color it, then pick
out my papers for it. After my papers are all picked out 
that is when I find all the embellishments I want to use on it.
Then I put it all together, I always lay it all out before
I glue anything down.
When it comes to making a mini album, I always figure
out what size I want to make, make the bones of 
the covers then pick my paper.
When it comes to everything I make I always try
to lay it all out before I glue anything down, I 
always seem to change my mind on the 
positioning of the embellishments.

Thank you so much for hopping along
and stopping by. I will post who 
I invite to hop along.
