The Lone Tree

Hi there!!! Today was a beautiful day in New Mexico! We hit highs of around 90 but this afternoon brought some storms through that really cooled things off!!! I was talking to my Mom about 4:45 our time (5:45 Texas time) and she said it was 101 degrees..............we were at, um, 74...............man I'm loving it!!!

Tonite Cait and I are scrapping. It is nice to have my girl scrapping with me again instead of her head in the computer - it would be there but we are having connection problems and Comcast isn't due out til morning so she can't really play her video games.........LOL

Anywho, here is a LO I completed for the Summer Soiree Blog Hop at Scrappin' Mojo. The challenge was to use a cute little nature animal so, my animal is the owl. I used a second sheet of paper and cut the owl out and layered it with a pop dot for dimension then I added, oh yeah, you see right, GOOGLIE EYES!!! I love using googlie eyes but don't have the chance to use them very often so I take it when I get it!!! The picture is of a tree that was growing on the side of the mountains when we went to the Jemez for my birthday. This beautiful tree was pretty much all alone in its glory and I couldn't resist snapping a pic!


Hope you like it!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Ahh very cute!

At least Cait can scrap and doesn't freak out like this when she doesn't get her internet games


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
