My Great Granny

Here is a Lo that I did for the challenge over at the My Mind's Eye blog. This Lo is my take on the sketch that was provided. The winner of the challenge gets to pick any three collections to take home. Can you believe that???? The paper I used is from the "Complete Boy" paper collection. I used the same papers to make the flowers. The journaling spot is actually a stamp from the "Laundry Line" collection that is stamped on more of the "All Boy" paper collection. The growing everyday glittered sticker is from the "Enlightened" collection. Of course I had to add some ribbon, bling, buttons, and Thickers for the title. I had such a great time creating this Lo, the flowers are handmade, all the distressing, Glossy Accents on the title, and even machine stitching. I normally don't do much stitching on Lo's because my sewing machine is always put away and I'm to lazy to drag it out. Needless to say, I have now created a permanent place for my sewing machine to be set up in my craft room so hopefully I will use it more often. Everyone has until November 19 to enter so get your Lo's in.

TFL, I hope some scrapin happens for you today!

My Donation to Locks of Love!!!

I just wanted to show everyone my donation to Locks of Love. This is a great non-profit organization that provides hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children who are suffering from medical long term hair loss, from any diagnosis, in the U.S. and Canada. I have been wanting to cut my hair for quite some time but always had an excuse not to, so finally here is the result.

I still cannot believe that I was walking around with that mess on my head and after it was cut it looked like a dead rat laying on the counter. Lol!!! There was not even a tear shed, yes it was time for it to go. When I came home my son, who will be 3 next week, said "Oh Momma your hairs all gone, I'm gonna go get you some more hair." He even jumped in his motorized car like he was going to the store, lol. I have to say that I am soooooo happy with my cut, and believe it or not I have natural curly hair so I can wear it curly or straight, it is very versatile. I am thankful that I could help out even with such a small gesture. I hope everyone has a beautiful day and happy scrapin!
