Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain

Good Monday to you!  This week I am acting as Paper Queen (thank you but hold your applause until the end LOL) over at Paper Playtime and this week's challenge is "Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain" which is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.   I used one of their digital stamps for this challenge and colored her in using simple watercolor pencils and an aqua blending pen. I also used Stickles around the rain drops and puddle.  I didn't want to take away from the image so I didn't put a sentiment on the front. With these stamps I don't think you really need to put anything, the artwork will speak for itself.

This was my very first time ever using a digital stamp and I had SO MUCH FUN!!!  I'm hooked.  Give it a try and you'll have a blast too.

So head on over to Paper Playtime and play along with us. Be sure you take some time to "Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain", it's a beautiful symphony created just for us by a loving God.  :)

Take care
....the Paper Queen has left the blogosphere, you may applaud  LOL jk

Baby girl mini album

Here is another project I worked on over Labor Day weekend for a baby shower gift.  I loooooooove how it turned out. Lots of handmade goodies in here including tulle flower that looks like a ballerina tutu, tons of stamping and embossing and pink goodness everywhere :)

Charms for September charm swap with Cindy

Ok so my blog managing skills are lacking, I'm working on that. I can only juggle so many online sites at one time .... well that and I'm learning new crafting skills. Woot woot! Yay me!   

I've made so many projects over the summer it's insane and I am having a BLAST! Crocheting, making mini albums, cards, shadow boxes, altered wood shelves, name it I've had my grubby hands on it LOL

I have always wanted to learn beading and jewelry making but could never quite get it. I even held onto some of the supplies I bought when I first started out. So now the big thing is making charms to attach to a mini album or whatever you want to hang it from but mainly it's the mini album. One of the ladies I subscribe to on YouTube was hosting a charm swap for September and I dove in head first and signed up. I had so much fun!!  (so of course I had to go out and buy tons more beads and findings....tsk) YAAAAY!  I had to make 8 charms for my group and I will get back 1 of mine plus 1 from each of the 7 ladies in my group. 

I decided to go for an autumn theme ... I am so ready for the holidays to start!!!  :)
