I can see the stripe top was a bad idea, LOL. I just loved it though! You wouldn't think I lived in Southern California with glow in the dark white arms like that, would ya? =]
I did 2 make and takes. This is my first make and take EVER in my life! =] It's a little journal. I made it at The Art Bar booth, with liquid laminate and specialty tissue paper.

Journaling: Klayre was tasting yogurt with Mama and Auntie! March 23, 09
This is my favorite layout that I've ever made. Granted I haven't made a lot, lol, only 10 in 2009 if you can believe that! But I adore this one. The photos are of my Dad and my niece, Klayre when we went to the park one day while my sister was tutoring. All I really did on this page was tape my photos together on the back, measured and matted it with a purple paper (look close, it's there!) Then with an exacto knife I cut around the flowers that over lap the photos. After finishing that, I knew I wanted to journal, but had no where to put it! So I journaled around the edge. I figured that since the photos weren't too detailed, it wouldn't be too much. I painted the @ white and then used white glitter on top of it. I painted the p,a,r & k lavender with 3 dots of stickles on each and painted a glossy top coat over it.
Journaling: You, Papa and I went to the park one afternoon because you wanted to play on the swing set. You started crying when Papa started pushing you.. so much for the swings! You absolutely loved jumping on the bridge that moved. You tried jumping on other parts of the jungle gym, but they didn't move. You were very excited to go down the slides. You went down all 3 slides.. including the HUGE twisty one. You and Papa climbed all the way to the top. When you got to the bottom of the big twisty slide, you had the most terrified look on your face! Before I could say anything, you said "I okay, I okay"! That was the last slide you went down the rest of the day! We met Ga at a second park, which you enjoyed just as much! You loved to climb up and down and up and down and up and down! I think the stairs were secretly your favorite thing @ the Parks! 12.16.2009 ((She calls my Mom, Ga, since she can't say Gammie yet!))
How do you like me now?
This layout was made for a Shape Your Photos Challenge on scrapbook.com. I'm still not too sure what that shape is called, the only thing that I've seen it called is a "label". But I love the shape! I've seen the folded paper technique (that can't be the technical term!) done on layouts and wanted to try it. I distressed the edges and used a red stitching rub-on over the top.. yup, it's not real stitching!! Rub-Ons from K&Co. (stitches), Bo Bunny (bottom right swirlys), and 3Birds (the "label" with the date in it). Type writer key is 7 Gypsies.
Journaling: One week while we were camping at Doheny Beach we heard some exciting news! On the radio we heard that Toby Keith was about a half an hour away doing a signing. We went back and forth all day, then at about 6p.m., Mom and I decided to go! This just happened to be right after the whole thing happened with Peter Jennings. He wouldn't let Toby Keith the song "Courtesy of The Red, White & Blue" because it said "We'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way." So, while standing in line, I asked Mom to write on the back of my shirt and put "Peter Jennings Sucks!" They were taking CD covers and said repeatedly that they were the only things he'd be signing, nothing else. When it was our turn, we stood in front of him and I said I wanted to show him my shirt. There were two HUGE bodyguards next to him and they were telling me I couldn't. I turned around and wouldn't you know, he stood up, leaned across the table and signed my shirt! The shirt hangs in my closet still and has not been washed to this day! Mom and I took a picture with Toby Keith's bus and of his license plate too. As we were going to our car we spotted Shawn Parr. At the time, he worked for KZLA 93.9 and is the announcer of all the award shows. We started talking with him and he also signed my shirt. He asked us where we were from and we told him and told him we were camping near by. He then proceeded to take out his cell phone and called Dad! We had been talking to Dad on and off all night, so he almost answered the phone.. (title) how do you like me now?

I made an insert to hold 2 tea bags. This card is going to my cousin Denise and I accidently ripped the paper, so that's where the "d" tab comes into play!!
I wanted to share this photo of my niece playing with her tea set tonight. When she got the Sock Monkey Tea Set for Christmas, she was asking everyone if they wanted some. Of course I had to be difficult and say "no thank you, but can I have a decaf coffee, no whip?" Any words that end in "p", "k" or "d", it sounds like a "t" when she says them. So she said "TT, no whit?" Now, even when you said you DO want whit, she says "no whit, no whit??" lol.
An actual conversation....
My sister: Can I have tea, with whit?
(we now call it whit too!)
My niece: tea? no whit?
My sister: No, I do want whit!
My niece: no whit? Mama, no whit? no whit?
Anything I sell from now until Valentine's Day will go to The Red Cross as well!
Here's the goodies...
