Some pages I've done recently

 I like to keep a record on the blog of what I've been making. It's one of the easiest places for me to reference. Just a simple place to share.

Here are a couple of my last entries at Pixels and Companies (PCO) "Cropped" event.

This page was a recent Creative Team project at

This page is about trying to take a photo with my iPad of myself with my buddy Ray amidst giggles, bad lighting and our ineptness on an evening when we went to dinner with our spouses. My plan for an original and striking way to incorporate my own large dot or circle pattern on a scrapbook page was to use the lovely art with circles by Milhazes that I found in a recent Vogue magazine as inspiration. I used my Pink Fresh Studio circle outline die on black card stock and then used it again on patterned paper for the centers. I used a paper plate as a guide on the large piece of polka dot paper but had to add to the edge by eye (use what you have when not at home. I left one quadrant square to work on my page. I used my Creative Memories circle guides to cut the dotted charcoal paper and the green circle outline. The circles reminded me of bubbles and flash bulbs (especially with those Bokeh-like dots on the large green paper). I loved the vibrant energy in the art work and tried to replicate that with my papers to add to the sense of fun. The original art used a stencil-like flower pattern in the design but I went for more texture with dimensional flowers though I used the shape of the flowers in the art as inspiration. I did add Ranger's Glossy Accents to the black cardstock for my "shine". Please refer back to Lisa Dickinson in the GIS archives for her "color, pattern, texture, shine" guidance for scrap pages.

A bit of sculpture. Yes, I needed help to move this! It is heavy. It was supposed to be  a coil pot. When it went wonky, I said it looked like a pregnant belly. Linda Gelfman said, "Go for it!". Thus, the ultimate vessel, LOL!

That's about it for now. Working on a few more items to post. I had some cute ATC's I made but the photos have gone missing. Alas! I'd have loved to have posted those.
