About Me

BC, Canada
I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !

A little mojo finally !!!

 I was beginning to think my mojo had disappeared but FINALLY this weekend I spend a bit of time at my desk playing . I have a couple Easter gifts I need to get done and sent so managed to get one done ! I bought these cool notepads just after Christmas and have been " going " to alter them for my Mother and Sister ...... and there they sat !

This is the side view and that is a LOT of note paper ! It also shows the diamensions on the cover

These flowers are cut with a Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Die then sprayed with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist and crinkled out and bent to shape before putting them together with a brad from my stash . The stems are florest wire and the leaves were by prima . Tida is colored with Copic markers , though I have no idea what colors  I used . The butterfly is from Prima and the rhinestones from my stash. the grass punch is from Martha Stewart .

If you have seen this idea before it probably came from the blog of Eulanda Silvey's as she has altered a couple of these notepads . Check out her blog for some fantastic cards and altered projects ! Funny thing is , we BOTH bought our notepads on the same day .... We live MILES apart from one another too but we both bought our's at a Save-On  grocery store ... though I have also bought some at Zeller's ! They are really pretty notepads even before they are altered !

Have a great week and happy creating !!!
