If it’s Tuesday it must be….

28 Dec
Believe it or not, I am not going to share a Christmas card with you.
Can you believe my Christmas tree is already down and Christmas is boxed up and put away.
No, I am not trying to be a bah-humbug, but the house has been turned upside down since we brought the tree home.
Also, if we kept the tree up too much longer, I am afraid our Christmas decorations would keep dwindling, thanks to my 2 little ones who just can’t comprehend the “HANDS OFF” policy.

I am excited to show you my project for, Cheery Lynn Designs, this week.  My little fairy princess, my 3 year old, was my inspiration this week.  She loves princesses.  She loves fairies.  She loves book.  She loves telling stories.
I thought it would be fun to combine all these loves into one project.  I have made a mini book about princesses and fairies for her.
She loves to make up her own stories, so I have included fairies and princesses of all sorts so she can use her imagination and make up her own magical stories.

I hope you enjoyed this little project I have shared with you today. I know my little one does! Imagine all the possibilities with this tiny book die set.
Thank you for stopping by, I will having something new, next week.
The Cheery Lynn dies used in this project are:
 

Tiny Thoughts Scallops and Rings

 

 

Scalloped Square

 

 

Buttons 1

 

 

Butterfly Bundles

 

Also since it is Tuesday, that means there is a new sketch and challenge up at Tuesday Trio.

Our leader has been through a tough couple of weeks and I would love to have any of my followers go on over to the TUESDAY TRIO blog and look, participate in a challenge, leave kind words…any and all would be so kind.  Imagine her joy if she had a slew of new participants?

I would love that, bringing someone happiness?  What could be better?

Feel like joining along in our challenge?  Here is our new sketch.  Sketch # 47.

The theme to follow is NEW YEARS.  What could be better?


Here is my take on the sketch:  How did I do with the DIGI flair?  Most of the paper and elements I used were mere FREEBIES I have collected on the way.  Now if it were only free to print all those pages I have done out..that’d be lovely!!

I will have a lot of things to share over the next couple of weeks, I hope you will keep tuning in to THE POLKA CABANA…

A gift from a friend.

While my little one was in the hospital, I tried to send messages to keep in touch, when the hospital computer was behaving.  My design team leader, Therese Travis, was one I need to let know what was going on, because, I had assignments due and was missing the deadlines.  I let her know where I was and I told her that my little one needed and ANGEL to watch over her, thinking Therese would know I was asking her to pray for us.  The next day in my INBOX was an email with an attachment from Therese.  It was an ANGEL/FAIRY of my little one.  We will call it the Boo Angel Fairy.

Therese, a wonderful artist, has the wonderful knowledge of how to take a drawing of hers and turn it into a file that the computer can understand, and then I can cut the pattern on my CRICUT.  So below, I am showing off the Boo Angel Fairy on the cards I made for the wonderful, doctors, friends and family that helped us out through our scary time.

Here she is!!

Different lighting.

Oooh, different angle!

A close up of the Boo Angel Fairy.

All 10 cards that I made, whew!  A lot of love and work went into these!

Thank you Therese, from the bottom of my heart!

TOO MANY IDEAS Design Team Project #2

15 Jul

I first came across Therese Travis on ETSY.COM.  I loved her FAIRY cut files.  She is a great designer and I loved the Fairy I had purchased from her.  I wrote her and gave her a suggestion for a certain type of Fairy, and do you know she made one based on my idea and her FAIRY, looked just like me, even though we had never met and at that point she had never even seen a picture of me.  She named the Fairy JEANNIE and you can see her in THERES’S ETSY store, HERE!

I felt like a celebrity when she sent me her final product.  So, for this challenge, I have used “JEANNIE” to create my scrapbook page about one small part of me.  I am very COMPLEX, so this is just a SAMPLE!!

Here is the page.

Bubble Page

The Text Reads:

“I have often thought of my life and all of the things I need to do with this analogy.

I feel like all the things I need to do and all the things I want to do are bubbles.  You know how when you blow bubbles from a bubble wand and hundreds of bubbles float around?  No two are fully connected and they all float in a different direction.

Well that is how I feel!

I am trapped in one of the bubbles, and all the things I need and want to do are in their own bubbles and I can’t get to any of them.  I am trapped in my own bubble and can only look, but not REACH or CONNECT, at the things that I want or need to get done.

It is a very helpless feeling.”

I am trying to show the details and layers in this picture.  Can you see them?

Best of all, here is “JEANNIE”, or should I say “ME”!!  Such a great file to work with!  Thanks Therese!

As usual, I would love to hear your comments, so let me know what you think!!

ECLIPSE Opening day is TODAY!!!!

30 Jun

In honor of ECLIPSE opening today, June 30, 2010, I have created a “TWILIGHT” project. The design team I am on for http://theresetravis.net/, is hosting a CHALLENGE. The challenge is to use the SVG, cut file for her box called the “FRYPOD” and one other of her files. I have use her FRYPOD and on of her FAIRY patterns. I used graphics and paper that reminded my of TWILIGHT type stuff and this is what I came up with! If you get to see the movie this week, I hope you enjoy it! Who knows when I will get to see it, but, I CAN’T WAIT!!
