August where did it go?

Hard to believe summer is almost over...dang! Here are some projects I created in August!
Rusty Pickle Mini Album "All My Love".

Sweet Baby blue eyes, my beautiful grandson Hunter. Created with October Afternoon paper, thickers, Rusty Pickle Rubon's.
A lo of Kenzie using Cosmo Cricket, lots of distressing and layering.

An altered canvas for Kenzie using a couple different Rusty Pickle lines. The canvas was first inked with Ranger distress ink and a stencil used for the background.

Bubble Beauty is one of my friends daughters. Alttle handstitching on this one.

of course another of Hunter...finally caught a smile and had to document it! This is a NEW line from Rusty Pickle, not on shelves yet. It is super cute!

Another using the NEW Rusty Pickle, my daughter Kelsey. I used white acrylic paint on the cardboard.

and yet another NEW Rusty Pickle line...of guess who. I used a Quickutz butterfly die on this one that was recommended by Brenda of Rusty Pickle. Love the bright colors of this new collection.
Thanks for looking!

Altered Canvas & layouts

A few new projects created for Craft Warehouse. The first is a layout created with Pink Paislee Captivating collection. It looks so beautiful IRL!
Then we have an altered canvas using Pink Paislee Fasinating collection. It features my son Jacob from about 9 years ago. I seriously think I'm going to be addicted to altering canvas' much fun!

The layouts were created with My Little Shoe Box products. These will be displayed in 12 x 12 shadow boxes so I made them bulky. One with my daughter Kenzie K. and the other with my grandson Hunter.

Thanks for looking! Kathie :)

A big scare!

So I just thought I would share: My oldest daughter Courtney (19) and her boyfriend are "back-packing the world" they have been on their journey for a about a month now. She calls me every Thursday and we communicate via email the rest of the week since she has a solar panel for her laptop.
Thursday I didn't hear from her and about 11:30 pm I got a phone call, I was expecting it to be her...but it was the Wisconsin Police heart sunk when he introduced himself. He asked if I was related to Courtney or Bill, then asked if she plays the violin. Of course my first thought that all that is left of her...her violin. Then he went on to say that she had accidentally left it in someone's car, they had turned it in and it contained their passports inside the case.
I just have to say that there are some fabulous people in Wisconsin, for turning in the violin & passports....the police even delivered it to her this afternoon!
Of course this still is not easy on me, not knowing exactly where she is and that she is safe...but it is heart warming to know there are good people watching out for her (for me).
