Great Aunt Phoebe

  Hey there! Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day! I have one "furry baby" by the name of Abby who I love dearly! She is an Abyssinian Cat, 12 years young! Her and her sister, Rudy (who we lost last year to kidney failure), are in a slideshow on my sidebar.


  It's been awhile since I posted. Lost in my Family Tree! This photo was given to me by a cousin who I met on the internet a few years back. This is his grandmother, Phoebe (Chant) Newton, and his 2 uncles Frank & Reginald. Phoebe's brother George Chant, was my grandfather; dad's father. I posted George and Dorothy's wedding day layout a few weeks back, which you can see HERE. I'm also posting my heritage pages in a slideshow on my sidebar.
  This was great fun to put together. The papers are from K&Company Julianne 12x12 pad set. The ornamental fence die cut is Die-Versions (love this!). The birdcage on the right is Tim Holtz from the Artful Flight stamp set and the round cage is from Kaisercraft Le Chateau stamp set. I stamped them both on the same floral background paper; glued onto Grungepaper; cut out and glued on to the page. 
  The birds are from the Clear Art Stamps set, Bird Notes. Butterflies, bee and white flowers are from K&Company Tim Coffey Garden White Floral Dimensional Stickers. The big flower and smaller one on top of it, was cut from a page from the Julianne set and layered. 
  Charms are from Michaels. I also cut the background out of the photo and glued them onto Grungepaper to make them stand out a bit. The beautiful button is from a co-worker. She gave some of her mother's buttons. I added bling to the middle of it. 
  Martha Stewart "Punch Around the Corner" - Cherish set was used on the floral paper. Journaling was done on a journal stamp that I stamped onto vellum with Stazon Jet Black ink.

  Getting ready to go to Florida next week. We have never been. Not big travellers. I have scouted out a couple of craft stores!

Thank Heaven For Little Girls

  She is too cute for words! She is from the Thank Heaven For Little Girls #1 sheet, available at The Stampsmith Online Shop.
  Paper is all from Prima Almanac 6x6 paper stack. Love this paper! The paper doily is Martha Stewart. They are tags and come in a package of 12.
  She is stamped on glossy cs with Colorbox Mudslide ink. Pink chalk to her cheeks for colour.
  "Wishes" is from Clear Art Stamps, Mini Memories set. I love this set because they are small.

The Stampsmith Challenge for May is a Sketch Challenge. You don't have to follow it exactly. I didn't. Hope you can play along, and remember, you must use at least one Stampsmith stamp. There is rubber to be won!
