MFT WSC Create a Scene-KelliJo

Close Up
Well for this weeks WSC we were to create a scene.  I thunked and thunked and BAM!  I came up with this idea... I used MFT Fallin For You, and Grow Love Plant a tree and the Tree dienamic, along with the leaves, LOTS of leaves...WTG has apparently gotten too much fresh air and is delirious.  Do you know what all is IN a pile of leaves ???  **blech** but there she is rollin around in 'em.  Just look at her feet... **sigh**
Clouds were sponged onto the back ground using SU Chalk, then gray felt clouds using the cloud dienamic were made.  A bit of grass dieing green felt along with the grass dienamic were also used. 
Check out her Flannel shirt... tee hee... I colored with copics and then used my blender pen and created the flannel lines in her shirt. :)  Smart huh?  LOL

Here is the completed "Scene"

I took some 12x12 chipboard that I got several months ago at M's on clearance, cut a hole outta the center and then proceeded to stamp the chipboard with Rich Cocoa Ink using my Weathered Wood BG Stamp by Judi-Kins.  Added two coats of Clear EP and viola!  Instant Wood Frame.

I'm thinkin this baby might possibly be the next Mona Lisa... Watchou think????

That's it for me... I had best go get the desk cleaned off... it is TRASHED...

Good Morning on this Day of Remembrance for those that lost their lives and those that lost loved ones. I think we all lost a bit of something that horrific day in our History...Innocence, Faith, Trust, Understanding...

I remember sitting in front of the TV doing Hailey's hair for school... Bub was down the hall getting ready for school, the first plane had hit and it was being broadcasted as a late breaking story...all of a sudden, here came plane #2.... The Horror.... I sat shocked and began crying...

Let all people know... you may have hurt us but you did NOT BREAK US!!!! Our Young Men and Women of the Military stand ready to protect us all!!!! Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brothers, Aunts, Uncles, Neighbors and Friends... As Lee Greenwood said it best...

God Bless The USA
by Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone,I'd worked for all my life.And I had to start again,with just my children and my wife.
I'd thank my lucky stars,to be livin here today.‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,and they can't take that away.
And I'm proud to be an American,where at least I know I'm free.And I wont forget the men who died,who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,next to you and defend her still today.‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,God bless the USA.
From the lakes of Minnesota,to the hills of Tennessee.Across the plains of Texas,From sea to shining sea.
From Detroit down to Houston,and New York to L.A.Well there's pride in every American heart,and its time we stand and say.
That I'm proud to be an American,where at least I know I'm free.And I wont forget the men who died,who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,next to you and defend her still today.‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,God bless the USA.
And I'm proud to be and American,where at least I know I'm free.And I wont forget the men who died,who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,next to you and defend her still today.‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,God bless the USA.

MFT WSC Back to School Blues-NOT!!!!

It's time for another MFT Wednesday Stamp Club (WSC) challenge... this week it's called Back to School Blues... I add, "NOT!" to that sentiment... I laughed this morning after dropping Hailey off at High School, she's a Sophomore this year! There were Mom's on the corner of the grade school, waving and blowing kisses and wiping their eyes! LOL NOT ME!!!!! I am THRILLED to have the house *somewhat* to myself...well until Dave announced he got laid off again but that is a whole 'nother story...
I used my "Are We There Yet" Pure Innocence. This lil cutie is SO much fun to stamp... tons of accessories... including this little wheelie know the UN cool ones that you buy for your kids to save Chiropractic trips and they REFUSE to use...yes, experience talking here... but THIS lil PI is a GOOD GIRL...she's using hers!!! ;) OK, check out her hand bag... I did reverse masking on this and used a $1 stamp that I got as a Thank you gift in a swap (Thanks Veronica)... Hailey actually has a bag IDENTICAL to this one... bling included!!!! YAY ME!!!! :)
TONS of Dienamics on this card, the NEW Bracket die, Rounded flower die, then the good ol grass, clouds, mini scallop and sun dies... I SEWED them together, yes, threaded a needle with linen thread from TCP and sewed those babies together, with ALL that felt I used a Red liner dot from Jody to hold them secure... you cant really see it in the picture but I chalked on some clouds using the cloud die as a template, SUPER cute... The DP is from I {heart} Paper called "Night Light" by October Afternoon. that was mounted onto PTI Pure Poppy and THAT was mounted onto SU! Pacific Point. The sentiment (my thoughts exactly today) comes from MFT's CHA set called Happy Days! There are 3 Bling Adornments on this card, her hair barrette and on the Zebra bag!
All in all I LOVE this card!!!! Makes me smile and giggle!!!! :)
Have an AWESOME Rest of the week... dont worry, your kids ARE eating all the healthy foods you packed for them!!!! Yea right!!!! LOL

Mojo 155~kellijo

Welcome to my Mojo 155 challenge card... :) Glad you stopped by to see!

Wedding Pics LOL

LOL!!! OK, so Matt and Bub have been friends since 3rd grade, neither one think twice about having a little bit of fun, so when the Money dance came around today, Bub was game to dance with Matt and of course Matt said, "I'll do anything for a buck!" LOL Not sure which one is leading however, they danced and danced and danced... Bub was a little bit worried as no one seemed to want to cut in on them! LOL

Hailey of course thinks of Matt as her other brother so it was her turn to dance with Matt...
You can see his Bride Heather in the background, dancing with I believe her sister...
The couple was SO cute, and looked SO happy, I Wish them nothing but the best for MANY years to come... hard to believe my "other son" is married!!!!! :(
Congratulations Matt and Heather Justice!!!!!

Kraftin' Kimmie #44 Challenge~KJ

I decided to use the CB Punkin folder but flipped it over to make it debossed... and some Basic Grey "Eerie" DP, MFT Orange Fizz and Black CS, nesties, copics, and a phrase from KK's Halloween sentiment set...
Tryin my hand at the coloring with copics to give dimension, I think I done good!!!! ;)
Thanks for looking... I made 5 others just like this for a swap...sorry about the bracket however this baby would NOT stay up by itself....

C4C #53 Books~KJ

It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges, Challenge!!! This week it's about Books...
I used the Framed Greetings Dienamic and stamped a phrase from the MFT set "I {heart} Books", used some DP that had a page from a story on it, some colored DP that has letters, then used the MFT Flower Trio Dienamic on some actual book pages, again using my Father in laws romance novel...LOL!!! He loves those things!!!! Anyway...

Well, NOW I've gone and done it...

Jeanne S from SCS is on the cover of a magazine for cards I bought the other day, remember my Jolinne post? Well, I cant get her card outta my head, it was the CUTEST lil fuzzy hedgehog... I am NOT turning Hedgehog lover... NOPE!!! I have placed my first order for Flower Soft... AAACK!!!! I had a jar when it first came out, figured glue sprinkle easy peasy... yea umm, not so much, you see NOW I have watched a video on Flower Soft TV (yes it exists) and learned that you dump the jar into a bigger bowl and "stir" it up to fluff it up... so whenI dumped mine and it bounced around my card and desk then made a mess, NOW I KNOW WHY!!!!!

SO, I am on the Flower Soft Band Wagon... so, for those that LOVE ME... LIE TO ME when I post a card using Flower Soft! LOL

Just a heads up of what's to come... FINGERS CROSSED it's KJ PROOF!!!!! I REALLY like that look... and it will probably be like Copics, must practice practice practice... a LIGHT HAND with the glue... UH OH! I was never a light handed glue-er and am still not, so NOTE TO SELF.....

Hugs kj
