Going Buggy Blog Candy

Don't go to Enfys' blog before June 30th. If you do you will reduce my chances to win this blog candy. You must go to her blog and see her wonderful creations. She is wonderful.

Cupcake Candy

You must not go to this site. This candy is mine and if you go there I will have less of a chance to win this Cupcake Candy. Don't go before July 1st. Because that is the day that my name will be chosen. After July 1st, go over and check out her works. Kim Ross is a very talented artist.

Stay away until July 1st. The goodies are mine. Now, go somewhere else.

Opus Gluei and Gluebooks

These two are intertwined this week. I recently found this article on gluebooks. I was thrilled. A way to release creative energy without worrying about what to do with the end project. I have a tendency to have to "DO" something with what I create. So a gluebook is the perfect answer.

I took an old, slightly used composition notebook, a stick of glue, a pair of scissors and some old magazines. The first challenge on the YAHOO Gluebook group for me was PURPLE.

So, here it is. My first gluebook page. I made is a while back, but am just now posting it.

(I have a NO STRESS IN CREATING policy.)

The challenge this week on OPUS GLUEI is WHITE WEDDING. Since I don't have any weddings coming up, I decided to make a page in my gluebook. See how handy they are to have around!

Here's the right page:

I was trying to get the feel of how most brides get lost in the wedding.

Yeah, it's supposed to be about the bride, but with all the details, she is sort of just one of the ornaments.

Much like the groom, delegated to the bottom corner.

The actual commitment gets lost in the pomp and circumstance.

And the left page:

This page is just some pretty dressed and a nice little saying with some color thrown in.

Except for the knife and chain in the middle.
Take those as you will.....

And here is how they look side by side:

As you can see, I couldn't stay with just white.

I HAD to throw in a splash of color.

365 Cards - Catchin' up molasses style...

I made this card for the 365 Cards - Day 117 Challenge - Simply Stamped. I made this in time to post, just didn't get to posting it. This darned family wants to eat. EVERYDAY.

Anyway, the peacock is from Unity's January Kit of the month, and the quote "Dare to be FABULOUS" is from Stampin UP. Not sure which kit. Sorry. I colored with regular ole Crayola colored pencils.

And, why YES, that is the 2009-2010 Stampin UP Catalog. Yummy. I have a wish list started...
