Fixing up an unwanted smudge


Nothing worse than having an accident on an almost completed page.
Sigh.
In the upper left corner where that flower sits innocently
I was adding some Nuvo dots.
I was quite successful adding them on the right side of the flower
and down by the butterfly but on the left side
the dots ran together and looked like a bug so I took
a wipe and made a huge black smudge
that no amount of cleaning up was gonna make it right.

Of course I was annoyed, really annoyed. 
Since I cut the paper down to 8x8 I had extra so I cut
a 1/2 inch piece and decided to run it all the way down the side.
Which looked well stupid.
UNTIL
I added stitching and now it looks like I meant to do that.
Love it when a plan comes together.
Cough cough.
Studio Calico, WRMK, and MAMBI alphas (again).

Presplatted paper and Arrows

The brown and gold splats came with the paper
and it was perfect for this
series of photos.
Of course I had to add more colorful splats with some hearts and stars.
 I thought arrows would be fun to roll through with the photos.
 Stamping some fun thoughts and that title is perfect.

TA-DA Annie caught the football

Fun page that helped in jump starting the ole mojo.
Studio Calico everything except the Quickutz arrows.

Tags that can be Tree Ornaments

Hopefully!
Hoping the grandkidlets will love them as they
did the ribbons and maybe think about hanging them
on their trees!

Had a fun time making these - mostly all hand 
and fussy cut and really so easy to do.

The trees were made from various project life cards that
sort of had "Christmas" colors and
it was easy to just slice on the diagonal.
The "Merry Christmas" was a stamp I found when cleaning
out my stamps. (Who knew).
My thought was to layer up different size tags, 
thus the gold color but it looked
well goofy and cluttered
so I just fussy cut the sentiment out and ditched the 
multiple tags idea.

Stamped the date with a library stamp from Studio Calico-
love that stamp by Shimelle and use it ALOT.
 Those MAMBI alphas that I didn't think I'd love
seems to be appearing on ALOT
of projects lately.

The stars are punched from some gold glitter paper I picked up
and love having on hand so I'm not running
out of enamels AND I use them with my heart punch
or with any punch which is not only very cost effective and unlimited uses.

Kardashians at the zoo!

 And I was totally clueless.
Like for real.

I happened to be in the elephant zone
when there was a big hubbub going on and there
were tons of cameras everywhere as opposed to cameras
in the zoo.
So of course, I joined the hubbub and just took pictures
all the while asking people what was a happening.

Turns out I had to resort to asking people younger than umm.....
30?? LOL!! to identify who was causing all hubbub
(and there was a lot).

I have to admit I was really kind of disappointed because
I didn't and don't follow the Kardashians
but decided in the end it would be fun to have gotten
them on my SD card.
