50th anniversary layout with roses

Here is the layout that I've done with the paper roses, if you look carefully you can see the words "I still love you" in the top left and bottom right corner of the photo, I used the daisies, roses, butterflies and 2 mats from my files, I also have a total of 4 rose petals,2 daisies, a mum and leaf in that collection, with a PDF of how to make a basic paper rose with a 6 petal flower. I already have them uploaded to paperthreads HERE , still planning on posting instructions and a free file on Friday.

Paper Roses

I've been surfing the web and seeing all the beautiful flowers that can be made out of paper, the layouts that use these flowers are just stunning. I really love Tim Holtz, I'm not quite as distressed as he is, but I'm a wanna be. I took a little of what Tim Holtz taught and a little of what the other blogs and video tutorials taught and created my own way. I actually taught this in a class at the crop this past weekend, and look what I made?

I'm really going to try to work hard, and get the tutorial written up and get the files made, I have several types of roses that I made and try to have it all ready by friday. I may even give out a free file of one of the roses, are you excited yet?? I'm also going to give away the whole file collection that I'm making it includes 4 types of rose petals, a large mat, 2 smaller mats and daisies, mums, leaves and of course the instructions for putting the roses together. All you have do to be entered in the drawing is .....
Make something out of one of my files and e-mail it to me 1 entry
If it's not a file I gave away free 1 additional entry
Make a comment on my blog 1 entry

Eggstra Fun Layout

I CASED this layout from the last crop I attended, I think it turned out pretty good. I'm going to use this on my grandson's egg hunt pictures for this year. He's such a cutie, My son and him met me for lunch yesterday and he wanted to come home with me, so of course he did.
Have a great weekend, I know I will, going to Cadiz, KY for a crop, I'll see you there.

2 simple layouts

March Sketch

I'm doing the sketch contest at Papertheads this month, we'll see how it goes, but I will go ahead and post a sketch every month, I can do that much at least. So anyway, here is the sketch and the layout I did from the sketch for this month, I'm a little behind on my books, so I'm submitting a Halloween page for your approval.

Here is the Sketch, click on the picture to see it larger

Here is my interpretation of the sketch

I used the title from Spooky Halloween, the spider webs are ribbon and around the pictures are ribbon, I used candy corn brads, and inked all my paper edges with dark brown ink.

Thoughts and info

My life is getting busier and I'm still not getting done what I want, so I've decided to cut back on my free file every week. I'll do at least one a month, maybe more, but not one each week again. I hope you'll still visit me anyway. I'm doing a monthly challenge on paperthreads and I'm thinking about cutting back to one every 2 months, maybe one of the other paperthreads designers will take the opposite month. I'm behind on everything, I wanted to put my Spring Collection on sale this month, and I've not even done that, but check back I'll get it on sale sometime this week.
I had a great time this past weekend, I got 8 pages done, and several sketched out in my sketch book, I also got a bunch of cards for soliers done, and started planning my Baby birth announcements for my new grandchild which is due around June. I'll post some pictures of my finished pages this week.
Have a great day, and if you have any comments, go ahead and post them, good, bad, ugly I want to hear them.
