BOO!, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

A card for ya, this one I made to get published but it didn't get picked up. I had forgotten about it, and then going through my pics I found it and how appropriate for the time :) I really like this card, partly because I got to use those fun Hero Arts - Halloween stamps, just so fun!
Well, quick post, will be MIA in the next couple days, me and the hubby are going on a trip and we are going to be out of town, pics to come soon!
I hope you like the card, I really like it and even though I'm not too big on Halloween, I can see how fun it can be. I actually carved my very first pumpkin this past wkend and it was fun! pics to come soon of that too! I hope you have a great rest of the wk!

Friend - Embellish Magazine color challenge

Friend, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

hey there peeps,

A card here this Fri evening, brought to you by Embellish Magazine color challenge, what fun colors, which I dunn usually work with but I was inspired by the Vintage theme, and well, I had the perfect die cut to work with. I used my Slice (Vintage Findinds card) to create the bee, and I worked around the bee to make the card. Pretty simple, not sure if they all go together but I like the card ... PTI (Autumn Mix) buttons worked perfectly as well, lots of buttons in rust colors!
Well, not much going in, I work this wkend :S blah! But you know what, i like having $$$ to spend on my crafting addiction, hehe.

My 6th Birthday circa 1991

My 6th Birthday, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

well, for some reason the kiddo pictures of the past have been popping up here and there for me :S Growing up we rarely took pics and well one day, the album with all (there weren't that many) the fam pics got wet due to the hurricane that hit us that yr ... so, there were only a few that survived, and this is one of them ... I scrapped it a while back with my Scrapbook Circle (Oct 2010) Kit, and while chatting with Savitri, she gave me the awesome idea to scrap my kiddo pics if I had any, so voila, how wonderful. Do you like my dress? my pose? hehe, my cake, which you can barely see is of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs theme, hehe ... the funny thing about this pic which took a long time ago, i actually remember it, it was taken behind my aunt's house, it was just me, my mom and her ... hehe.

Just the 2 of Us!

Just the 2 of Us!, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

It's Thurs and I'm SO glad that today and tomm I get to stay at home after school :) I started working at Starbucks not too far from where I live, and eventhough I luv getting paid, work is just work, lol. Besides being busy with school, I have not really been able to craft much this couple wks, and when I do, I really dunn have the energy to do so :S But this page was done a couple days ago, I found this pic of me and Scott together, so I jumped right into scrapping :) Really, if you haven't already figured it out, I'm not done using my Jenni Bowlin (Aug & Sept) Paper Crafting kits, hehe... I really luv her patterned paper, so yes, I'm slowly but surely using them! This pic was taken about 3yrs ago when Scott and I were in Westwood, CA :) He was on a work trip and I tagged along, and did some sight seeing too, he also went to UCLA so we were really close to the campus, it was fun!

Best Wishes - finally, a card :S

Best Wishes, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

hey there peeps,

If there is anyone out there visiting my blog now and then, let me know, hehe. I have had a bad case of crafter's block and I'm slowly getting my crafting mojo back, it can really be frustrating some times, especially when I really want to use some goodies that I purchase and I just can't seem to get an ounce of creativity!
The card, well I luv it, almost no stamping, but a mere blend of American Crafts Botanique paper that I won not too long ago, the colors are just so beautiful! and used exclusively on this card, save the cardstock, ink and sentiment. I wanted to start with colors, then I slowly built up this grid/squares layout. Beautiful huh? The butterfly punch is the ever popular and classic Martha Stewart butterfly punch I got at Michael's. I think it would be a perfect wedding card, don't you think? I hope more creative thoughts come to me, I really need to start crafting again :)
