It’s about time!!! . . .

Hi there, I am sorry that it has been so long.  It is not that I have not been playing . . . I have just been really slack in sharing what I have been doing.

I have so many new toys that I have been trying out and wanting to share with you, but I seem to get lazy when it comes to taking photos and blogging. I am hoping that this will all change.  I am planning on setting aside time, at LEAST once per week to share what I am creating with you all.

So here are just TWO of my favourite things . . . at the moment!!
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I have only just discovered them, and am obsessessed (don’t worry, I have not given up on my Copics . . . I just have to make room for another obsession!!).
There are so many things that you can do with them.  Here is just a sample . . .

If you are going to the Scrap2Relax Retreat next weekend, I’ll be showing you some of the fun things that you can do Smile

Talking about the Scrap2Relax Retreat, I was thinking about what I would mostly be playing with . . . I am thinking Card Making – mostly with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and my Copic Markers. 

So, I was looking around the internet and found a sketch site that I used to look at Called Mojo Monday.  I decided to download some of their sketches, to use on the weekend, and ended up making them into a book!!

I used another toy I have, that has not had nearly enough use – My Zutter Bind-it-all.  What fun it was.  I created a sketch book from scratch, decorated it, and then used the scraps of paper left over to make a cute little notebook.

Maybe I’ll take my Bind-it-all away as well!!

Anyway, this is the end of my post for today, but I look forward to sharing with you regularly this year.

Remember . . . When Life gives you Scraps ~ make something with them Smile
