The new prompt over at the A Year in the Life of an Art Journal and this is it:


THE STUFF: Didn't have a chance to take part in something like Thankful Every Day in November? Maybe you were on the ball. Either way, it's time to make yourself a list!! 1 thing, or 22 of them. Share with us!!

THE TECHNIQUE: Use a clean white page, and your own handwriting. I dare you!

Well I'm glad Rachel dared me because this was a real challenge for me because I found it such a plain page but in the end I loved it! I wrote down a bunch of things that I am thankful for, from the very important to the little things, and then stamped "thankful" in paint over top of my journaling. I'm glad I made myself stick to the challenge because I ended up with something that I normally wouldn't have done!   Here is my page  

So come on and play along, I dare ya!!!

Viva Las VegaStamps We can do it! Lady stamp

Hi everyone, today I would like to showcase the We can do it! Lady stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps!

I have had alot of fun with her as she is the perfect size for ATC's, journal pages, cards and scrapbook layouts! I stamped her and then colored her in with watercolor pencils for this scrapbook layout

and here is a close up of the lovely lady

Isn't she fabulous?? For this project I used the following:

We can do it! Lady stamp
Miracle tape
12 x 12 scrapbook paper
White cardstock
Letter stickers
Smiley face sticker
Versafine ink
Staedtler watercolor pencils
Die cut corners
Plastic button

I have also used this stamp on an ATC

I stamped her, colored her in and then placed her on some peace sign patterned paper and then matted it onto black cardstock.

If you haven't used stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps you don't know what you are missing! They have the most unique, funny, fun and quirky stamps that I have ever seen.

Before I leave I will share a couple more layouts I did last week. Here is one on how I wish the hubs would quit smoking already!!!!
 and on our son
Well, it's a quiet day so I'm off to have some art time. Have a great day!!

Alice Cooper Concert!

The hubs and I went to see Alice Cooper in concert on Friday, November 9th. I'm not a big fan but he wanted to see it and I'm not one to turn down a concert! haha We had a good time and I got lots of great pics and another t-shirt to add to my concert T collection! Here are some pics from the evening

Me and the hubs ready to go out and rock it out!
I felt like ripping this guy's damn hat off. Figures I would get behind someone who is a giant.

 We walked home after the concert as it was impossible to catch a cab. Thank goodness it was mild even though it was snowing!
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!!

On a scrappy note I FINALLY scrapped the Loverboy concert we went to back in June!! Here it is

and I also have a couple other layouts to finally share (it's been slow lately...)

And that's it folks! Now I'm off to hopefully scrap another layout and get a little more caught up!

5 year blog anniversary!!

So today has been 5 years since I first started this blog!! Boy how time flies. I remember trying to figure out how to post, how to format, etc.. and thinking I would never get the hang of it! haha I'm glad I am still blogging even though I'm not doing it as frequently as I used to. That's probably because I am not having as much art time as I used to, which I'm still trying to figure out why? Since I got my Sony reader I have been doing alot of reading which seems to take up alot of my art time. Also I think I just slowed down, which is ok too.

I actually have nothing artsy to even show you with this post but since it was a 5 year blog anniversary I had to do something right?? haha Thanks to everyone who stops by here to visit me! Here's to another year!

Viva Las Vegas Stamps Pointing Lady Stamp

Hi everyone Glenda here! I just love this VLVS Pointing Lady stamp

and used her to make an ATC. She is the perfect size for an ATC and I love how you can make her point to whatever you choose. In this case I had her point to a quote but I look forward to having her point to many different things! haha

I used alot of layers in this card as well as the supplies listed below:

Supplies used:
VLVS Pointing Lady stamp
Miracle Tape
May Arts trim
Black cardstock
Various patterned papers
Hambly transparancy
Watercolor pencils
Versafine Ink

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I used the pointing lady stamp!

In other non scrappy news the hubs and I were supposed to see April Wine in concert on Saturday night and we drove 40 minutes to get to the concert only to find out it had been cancelled as the band was stuck in BC. We were sooo disappointed. I guess they will be rescheduling but we were sure looking forward to seeing them that night. We did have a nice supper out and then went looking for backsplashes for our kitchen but it wasn't the rockin night we had planned! haha
