Families are forever

Good morning all

Well today is my last time posting as a design team member for Practical Scrappers:-(

It is bitter sweet for me I loved doing it and being a part of an amazing team , but on the other hand I don't have to do projects for the challenge and have them ready for a certain day.

I can make what ever I want when I want. I just wanted to prove to my self that I was good enough for a design team and I did that for 2 terms....I know I will miss it.....

Was a wonderful experience for me!

Now on to my layout we where to use buttons and that was an easy one for me because I use a lot of them. I did this layout of my Family minus 1 Brother that doesn't seem to think he is a part of our Family. My Mom in front from left to right Me , Brother Butch, Sister Bonnie and Brother Dave missing is my Brother John ....That we love and miss!

I did this layout with thoughts of Mothers day coming up you will see what I mean in a minute.

Families are forever Layout using

K&Company paper EK Success corner punch for pic mat

Cricut Just because cart for tree cut at 16 ins inked, doodled and pop dotted and added buttons.

Title cut at 2 ins and doodled.

wagon cut at 3ins doodled and pop dotted.

apples cut at 1in pop dotted and added the date.

Lace and ruler ribbon, tore some green paper and added as grass inked the edges for depth.
And last the big button that represents my Mom and the fiber that represents my Family the button is tied to the fiber with string that represents LOVE and it holds everything together because that's what a Mother does.....Today is my Mom's 83rd Birthday and this layout is very special to me....

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

Freezer paper shirts

Good Friday to you all

Here are the freezer paper T shirts I made for the kids for Easter.

I really enjoyed doing them and they were fairly fast except for having to wait for the paint to dry....I used the glitter paint for them.

Like the boxes I didn't want them Easter themed I made them summer.

I bought these shirts at Michael's and they are thin , I think next time I will try to find a heavier shirt...they make everything so cheap!

I really like how they turned out and I hope they like them.

Cricut cart used Life's a Beach for all the cuts
I used the word titles for the fronts , icons for the sleeves and the boarder cuts for the backs.

I used my sm flower punch and added them on Ryan's surf board and Courtney's bikini

I also used my dog foot prints for Ryan's shirt....

I love how Lily's turned out with the pretty Lizards and I thing the glitter paint is perfect for the summer they just sparkle....

Blogger will only let me add 5 pics to a post so
on the back of the Bikini shirt I added a boarder of sm bikinis don't know why they all look purple or blue...they are bright white and the colors are very bright .....

I hope I have inspired you to try one they are fun to do ....

Thanks so much for dropping by and have a great day

I hope all of you have a very Blessed Easter
