Why Not Win Wednesday and FabScraps!!!!

Well it is humpy hump day again and another chance to win a great prize!!! FabScraps has provided this great package this week! The papers are Fab-u-lous! 

I made the following from my FabScrap stash, I love it so much it maybe hard to give away to my niece! 

Here is how I created this project:

1. I choose a background pattern paper and cut it to the size of the frame.

2. I cut out a medallion on my Silhouete as the next layer from a co-ordinating pattern paper. I inked the edges with ClearSnap ink. I curled the edges of paper with my fingers to give it dimension.

3. I took the FabScrap chipboard (Circle Swirl Frame) and sprayed it with Smooch, then I lightly dabbed on top some Donna Salazar Mixed Media ink to tone the colour down a bit and make a stippled effect. Finally I inked the edges with ColorBox ink.

4. I glued the three layers together and added a small photo to the center.

5. I embellished the whole frame with bling, flowers and punched Butterfly and ferns.
Well I hope you all go over and visit Canadian Scrapbooker and enter to play along!  Take care and see you all later this week!

Pce

2012 Christmas Love Campaign….. spreading love.

Christmas Love Campaign Gift Weckesser
BIG {smile}!
Guess what starts today? Yup, the Christmas Love Campaign….. the 4th Christmas Love Campaign! How COOL is that!!!
My heart is so full of emotions as I type this because this world is so full of so many challenges and trials, BELIEVE me, I really do understand! I try to post uplifting thoughts & words all the time because I know we need that in are life, but the world’s challenges weigh heavy on my heart too just like all of us!
Last week as Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the United States there was a couple days where I didn’t know if my son, who is serving a two year mission over there, was safe. This had come just after learning that my mother, who is an amputee is now facing the double amputee of her legs. I felt let I had reached the limits….. of whatever limits I am suppose to humanly have! Not to mention my husband, has never been that understanding and compassionate, or huggy, and so when I turned to him in crisis mode last week I just got a very clinical & emergency services answer: ‘He chances are good.” Yes ladies, being married to a fireman really isn’t that hot! lol sandy weckesser
My son took this picture of a basket ball court. they were digging out the sand around it because of the homes that need access. 500+ missionaries have been helping dig out areas, cut up downed trees, clean up basements, and help people out.
At the current time Christopher is right on the waters edge and in my heart I knew he must be safe, but as the media images filled our home my fear began to build. I was so happy to get a phone call from another mother one night telling me that the missionaries had made it inland and she had taken them out for a warm meal. She was calling mothers to let them know that their sons were safe.
I will always be grateful to that lady for reaching out to me, a perfect stranger!
This world can be so hard….. Each day we are faced by natural disasters, family crisis, health issues, monetary problems, and day to day things that just seem to pop up. But, we can ease each other burdens just by reaching out and doing one little kind thing. It always amazes me that when someone seems to be having a horrible day, like that cashier at the grocery store, if you just take a second and smile at that person, and tell them to have a nice day…. well, most of the time, they won’t seem so grumpy anymore!
So PLEASE join in the Christmas Love Campaign!
It won’t take much of your time & you will be so glad you did!!!!
You can follow tweets, tweeters and twitterings by following hashtags #christmaslovecampaign #craftuplove . Please feel free to use those hashtags when talking about the Christmas Love Campaign and tell us what you are doing!

A couple more!

Here are two more from lately, one more for The Scrapping Nook and the other for Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy challenges.  Snickers is my feral cat that we have had for 9 years, to this day she only trusts me when I am in the dark lying down! She will cuddle but only under those terms.  The second layout is an old photo of my niece, nephew and a few friends kids.  Aren't they cute!  If you have a change head over to CS to play along each month with the Sketchy Challenge!
