I am so happy that I found my mojo again. I have been on a total scrapping and ATC frenzy and can't tell you how happy it makes my heart. I can hardly wait to get settled in our final house and make an art room that is truly mine, one that I won't have to move from.
There were a few challenges that I busted my ass to make tonight as the deadline for them is almost here and the first one is
Use your stuff (and thank God I found these guys because I truly do need to USE MY STUFF!!!!) where the challenge was "white" so I made this ATC (but I had to add just a touch of green!) and also Shopping our stash where the challenge was "never been inked before" so I used a stamp that I have never inked before which was the naked woman
The next one was the ARTastic challenge blog where the challenge was a painting of Bacchus where I used the color scheme as well as fit all 3 of these in:
1. Fruit or grapes on your page= 1pt
2. wine glass and or bottle on your page = 2pts
3. A bow = 3pts
I know, holy shit! I love these guys because how challenging is that??? So I used 2 different stamps to make this and as you can see I have fruit (the pear), a wine glass (she's holding it) and a bow (I made a glittery one for her hair)
And last but not least I had made this one for another challenge but missed the boat (that's what happens when you wait until the last minute to play in your art room)
It's cold where I live and I am so not ready for winter. If I never saw another snowflake again I would not be sad. Seriously. Here is what the backyard of the rental looks like

I can't believe it wasn't that long ago that we sat on this snow covered deck and had beers and listed to music. Here is a layout I just did about summmer (I miss you summer!!!!!)
I also made this layout on my sweet pea's cast from when he broke his little leg (it's off now and he's as good as new!)
and speaking of my little sweet pea we had the grandkids for a visit on the weekend and here is our smiley girl
and my little man
and my little man after Grama played him out and gave him snacks and chocolate milk
It was so cute, he fell asleep sitting up just like an old man! haha
