REALLY {{MUSTACHE}} & SCRAP - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday - April 15th

HI there!

I am sharing my latest
Sketch-y Friday
April 1st, I was truly BLESSED to sneak away for 3 full days of scrapping 
for the ScrapMuch? Spring Retreat at the beautiful Elm Hurst Inn
with my girls Ronna and Mom.
"this one's for the Girls!"
This page is screaming how silly we are and how much FUN
is to be had.

[ a little info to share, in order to make this weekend happen,
we were preparing for some major renos to be
completed while I was away,
my little would attempt his first solo, 2 night sleep away
and Easter Monday our basement flooded :(
needless to say, I forgot to sleep on Thursday
night but accomplished EVERYTHING!!]

Here are some close ups:
 I chose this Echo Park patterned paper (obviously!)
played with some acrylic paint and texture paste with
my Tim Holtz stencil.
My title is a smash up of: Fancy Pants mini-alphas, Mustache (I wore), 
Calico wooden veneer (altered) and Amy Tangerine Thickers (altered)
 I mixed in a film strip with a polaroid sleeve adding a stencil and acrylic paint,
Maya Roads metal mustache tied with red twine.
The addition of my mustache clip tops off this fun page!!
I tinted my kraft paper ric rac and tucked it behind my photos
and added Calico wooden veneer GO SEE DO
I had so much fun both creating this page and
spending an entire weekend scrapping.

Here is Laura's sketch:

Fuse Tool

Hi there!

Apparently, I live in a bubble and a little behind in the "NEW"
of  the scrapbooking world.

This weekend, I am retreating...
(Definition:  3 day full days of scrapbooking with a full ScrapMuch? store on hand at 

Elaine demonstrated the The Fuse Tool

I love , Love 
love it!
I could wait to start creating...

Here are a few cards I made:
 I up-cycled a large baggie and divided it into 3
The bottom was a Project Life card I added some corner 
sequins and inked the edges.
The middle section I added some sequins - wish I had added a bit more
The top portion I altered another project life card with gold.  
This is now the front of my card
- some lucky person will be receiving

Next, I did  a small card of thanks,
while I am away we are having some renos done to our house and 
I sent my little off to my friends house.
Bottom section is patterned paper cut to size (fitting into a small plastic baggie),
added a cut file arrow adorned with a heart enamel dot.
fused it
Middle section is red glitter and sequins
fused it
Top section, is a silhouette cut file "thanks"
I have to thank her for taking my little all weekend.

Truth is, I didn't get much done, other then fusing EVERYTHING I could
get my hands on. hahaha!!
I can't wait to keep creating with this tool.

Thank you for stopping by

First Haircut - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hi there!

It's the first Friday of April
and I am packed and on the road for a
scrappy Retreat weekend
at the Elm Hurst Inn
- no joke!!

Today is a double page
First Haircut
 For Ecuadorians, it is custom to have your child's first hair 
cut at the age of 2, traditionally there is a big party and a hairdresser
guides everyone to donate and cut a lock of hair,
we opted for waiting until he was 2 and paying a professional!
(my sister cut my hair when I was little and have pictures to prove it LoL!)
My little wasn't sure if his hair would hurt being cut...hehehe

Left side

Right side
Here are some close-ups:
 Cut file title, adorned with his lock of hair
 Layered up loving this embelly (we love this photo of him with his tongue),
with a mixed layered cluster 
<<celebrate>> everyday moments
Mind Mind's Eye 2 brad, and an Evalicious capture camera
here is some layers and ink splatters to match the 
Bella Carta line.

Here is Laura's SKETCH:
