Mercury In Retrograde?

New in my world – a volunteer project.  Every Saturday morning I head out to Zuma’s Ranch and spend two and half hours with this lovely creature

and an equally lovely little girl.  Together we bold over all things girly and horsey.  Such a good fit for my life right now.  One section of the session is about setting goals for the next week, knowing I’ve neglected this little blog for far too long, I set my goal to blog this week and is luck would have it I have a few layouts to share.

It’s no secret I love a good breakfast out and Snooze is my favorite place – lucky for me my sister has fallen in love with their hashbrowns so she makes the drive once a month or so and we have a great time together.

Here’s a quick layout to celebrate the simple tradition

Systems

Syndicated from Tattered Angels Blog

Developing and implementing systems that work, is a big part of what my friends call my ‘big girl job’, but systems don’t have to stop when 5 o’clock comes around.  I love that Tattered Angels partnered with some great companies to come up with paint systems that take the guess-work out of color matching and still leave lots of room for the creative process.

This month I used the Pink Paislee/House of Three Favorites Glimmer Mist Set. The set includes the  Starfish, Apple, Sugar Maple and Patina(one of my all time favorite colors) glimmer mists. I love how versatile these colors are…

For my first layout, I misted Starfish and Patina on some lovely Lily bee grid paper to create a springy background, then I combined with some great Basic Grey paper and other embellishments that all came in the September Cocoa Daisy kit to make this fun spring page.

 

Up next a quick vacation layout,  I used the Patina and a torn piece of cardstock to create a wave like effect on the kraft paper and the Apple as a background for my photo block. I also used the Patina to mist the Making Memories butterfly that has been in my stash for ever.

 

It’s fall here in my neck of the woods, one of my favorite seasons to decorate my home. So for my final project I decided to create a home decor item. I used my cricut to cut a delicate tree out of plain white cardstock and then misted it with all the colors in the set.  I used my embossing gun to dry and burn the edges just a bit and then used some temporary adhesive to adhere to my hurricane vase.  Tie a ribbon, add a candle and some dried baby pumpkins and voila instant centerpiece.

 

Hope you enjoyed my projects this month, think you’ve got what it takes to be an angel? Check out the call for the 2012 team on the main Tattered Angels Blog today
