another spread

in a music deco. The theme of this deco was music legends. The owner started off with Mick Jagger, the next artist did Elvis and I did Ella Fitzgerald, know for her scat singing, among other things. She had such a full life I couldn't include everything I wanted into the spread so I went minimalist and included just a few facts. The scan didn't turn out well due to the fact that the page before was so dimensional, my spread wouldn't open properly. LOL

I did it, I did it

Fluffy Fatbottom's Twisted Tuesday's challenge today was for wicked witches and here's my attempt. It feels so good to get something done!

me bad

I have been such a bad blogger lately! I haven't been able to do any art this week and I'm so swamped with swaps, I'm frightened now I won't be able to do a really good job just so I can get them finished.

Please be patient with me while I get everything straightened out and get some art done to show. Thank you!

I got the challenge for Fluffy Fatbottoms Twisted Tuesday fish challenge just in time for tomorrow's challenge!


If you do things differently–or try new things–you sometimes feel like “A Fish Out of Water”–So, we want you to use a fish image–and have that fish doing something totally different than swimming comfortably in water.

I was tagged

I was honouered by my dear friend Heather at Creative Solace in a middle name tag and it goes like this:

Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blogpost containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

Well I don't have a middle name and ever since Heather tagged me I have been wracking my brains to come up with one that I would have loved to have and still can't come up with one. After many, many years of hating my name and wishing for anything else but the one bestowed upon me, I have finally accepted it.

But I do remember that I was supposed to have been called Leslie until my Mim put her foot down and said no! LOL What's strange about this is that my dear friend Heather's middle name is Leslie and there's no way I could do as good a job of this tag as she did.

L - loving
E - energetic
S - supportive
L - learner
I - intuitive
E -emotional

Lame eh? LOL

Now I'm supposed to tag as many people as there are letters in the name so I'll try to pick artists who's work I really love but don't get to often enough.

Linda C.
Beth A.
Gayle P-R

Ladies have fun with this!

P.S. - can you tell I'm trying to get caught up all at once? LOL

world cardmaking day

was 2 days ago but because of my silly schedule, I wasn't able to to do anything for it, shucks, I missed all the fun! So yesterday as I was doing a bunch of catch up I did these 2 cards for Halloween. I had got a big sheet of chipboard accents at the dollars store, gotta love the dollar store! and i did this with some of them. These are just off a 3 x 3 format.

music deco

my spread

my sign in tag, the owner supplied the basic white tag and we are to decorate it

this is my page in another artist's deco. Her page featured Louis Armstrong and was so delightful I had a hard time figuring out what I was going to do until I heard a song by Frank Sinatra. Now, I was born to and raised by older parents and the only music I heard in the house was 40's and 50's 'stuff', swing, jazz, big bands, etc ... and I loved it all. Frank for obvious reasons was and still is one of my absolute favourites.

4 x 4 Friday

The theme for 4 x 4 Friday this week is Black and White and while I love this combo, I struggle with it. I think I over did this one. Enjoy!!
