not your typical "Halloween" or "masquerade" but the new ones by Tim Holtz!

If you don't know what I'm talking about..its like a clear piece of thin plastic with forever "sticky note" glue on one side! you put them down on paper and ink around the mask making kool designs! i made one big sheet and cut it into quarters.

I wanted to make a new brother in law just got engaged!!!!!

i used then distress inks..started with peeled paint (green) then moved the mask and put on brushed corduroy (lt brown) then moved the mask again and used weathered wood (blue).

Each layer added more was hard to stop! then i had a heart stamp that i used with fired brick (red) and accented it with distressed stickles (another FUN discovery!).

I didn't really like how it turned out so i just stamped the heart, added some more flourishes and sprayed with gold shimmer. I'm soooo glad I had time to play today!!!

turned another one into a birthday card for my mother in law...with some grungboard!!

Whoo HOOO!!!!!!

I have a Scrap room!!!!! ok I can finally see the floor!

that sounds more like it! when I moved, everything kind a got "put" in the room...then I tried to find this and that and make the invitations and some ATC's and whatever....I totally LOST the whole thing. So (in Michigan) fire arm deer season starts on November 15. being married to a hunter...he left friday afternoon. I had 5 glorious days to Play!!! yea me!!!! i decided that i needed a place to "play" so ..i looked for the table....then remembered that i had a stool in there ....somplace....I remember having a radio i took everything out...spent 4 days putting it back together and purged a TON of stuff out! I really am good at organization, I just dont always follow my own rules! or remember to.......!

I am really embarrased to post the "BEFORE" pictures...maybe it will help remind me to keep it clean! a little public humilation goes a long way!!!
