Coffee rocks!!

Hi everyone, Glenda here with a new prompt from the A Year in the Life of an Art Journal blog! The prompt today is:


PROMPT: Must HAVE IT? Take it, or LEAVE IT? Are you a MUST HAVE MY COFFEE kind of person, or an "I am able to start my day with it or not" kind of person?

SHOOTERS: Take a picture of your coffee near a visual indication of your time line. (calendar, clock, newspaper, lunch)

BOOKERS: Create a page using "all or nothing" in your embellishments and/or texture. http://pinterest.com/pin/1055599884603104/

If you enjoy art journaling or even just taking pictures (you can be a "shooter"!) I hope you pop on over and play along with us!

I am a "booker" which means that I love to art journal and for the above prompt I had fun using a bunch different stamps from the super fun Viva Las VegaStamps!! such as the always awesome Line of Chevrons stamp




and the 6 hexagon background  stamp





the row of stars stamp





the chicken wire stamp





the Nun with hands up stamp





the Large lightbulb stamp





and last but not least the Coffee stamp





and I combined all of these plus a ton of strips of washi tape to make this art journal page about coffee!





This page was super fun to make and it makes me smile when I look at it! I hope to see you come on over and play along with us as I would love to see your take on our prompt!

Marianas Trench Again!!

Me and my bestie went to see Marianas Trench in concert on April 10th and it was amazing!!! This was the 2nd time I saw them in concert and they put on such a great show. Josh Ramsay, the frontman for the group, is so full of energy and I just love him!! Here are a few pics of our night







Loooveeee these guys!! And I love that they just won Group of the Year at the Juno Awards in Regina, Saskatchewan!! Woohoo!! A big shout out to one of my fave bands!!

On a crafty note since it's been a while since I got my art on, here's an ATC I made using a stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps

Have a great weekend!!

A Year in the Life of an Art Journal

Hi everyone, Glenda here with a new prompt from the A Year in the Life of an Art Journal blog! The prompt today is:


PROMPT: What's your Story? (everyone has a story about a person, event, emotion, feeling, whatever, tell me yours)

SHOOTERS Shoot your mug with a stack of books.

BOOKERS: Focus on lots of journaling! Use stencils or masks. If you don't want your journaling to SHOW, journal THEN PAINT! Cover your journaling with your paints and embellishments!!

If you enjoy art journaling or even just taking pictures (you can be a "shooter"!) I hope you pop on over and play along with us!

I am a "booker" which means that I love to art journal and for the above prompt I had fun using a few different stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps! such as the Birds on a wire stamp


and the Row of stars stamp


and the Washi chevron background stamp


that you can also find on Plate 917


and I made an art journal page using a ton of paint and lots of journaling



I hope you enjoyed my page and hope to see you pop on over and play along with us over at the A Year in the Life of an Art Journal!

April Wine!

So the hubs and I went to another concert and saw April Wine last weekend!! It was an awesome concert!! They sang so many of their hits and sounded just as good today as they were then! Here are some pics from the concert
This is us on our way to the concert!
Here they are!
How cool is his green guitar?? And this was the view from our seats.
and here is one of their songs from way back:

 It was an awesome concert!! This Wednesday night my bestie and I are going to see Marianas Trench. This will be my 2nd time seeing them and I can't wait!!!! wooooo!!!

Scrappy Sunday

I had so many pictures of the boys that I decided to do a couple layouts on them. For some reason, and I don't know why, I love calling them "Big papa" and "little papa", or "the papa's". It just sounds so freakin cute. But really "little papa" is Sam
and "big papa" is Skyler
how cute are they??? I am so behind on my scrapping. For some reason I just don't have the energy at night and prefer to kick back on the couch and read. So today I'm in my art room and am hoping to get at least one more layout done. Wish me luck!
