Home From The Holidays

So Here's our darling little Avery. 
My wonderful friend
Mindi made her the cutest hat for Christmas.
I've been so excited to share these photos with you. 
Its what I made for the babies room for Christmas.
But couldn't share until the kids opened them.
A quilt with shabby chic flowers,sheets,3 sweet pillows,a lamp,
a couple of shabby chic mirrors ,poem in a shabby frame and more

this is the bed skirt, sheer fabric with pink butterflies layered over creamy fabric

I painted the crib while we were there. 
Heres the crib in place. Everything for our little princess Grand baby!

I found a dresser while we were in Texas and painted it to match too. 
Just needed to pick up one more knob for the front. 

A shelf to hold some of her goodies.

Another shelf my son did. 
a shabby chic hanger with crystals and an Antique I found.

It was so much fun setting up her Nursery.
I know the kids have a few more things to add.

We had a great time with our little family in Texas.
Josh ,Kris, Emmett and Avery

Made extra special by seeing it through a child's eyes.

A Not so Scary Halloween Altered Book Tutorial

I wanted to make a Altered Halloween book for my 3 year old Grandson,
Nothing to scary, more about Trick or Treating.
I started with a hard cover book I found at the $ store.
I covered it with Gesso. 
I loved that it had windows I could use in the planning of the book.
Added white tissue and gel medium to give it lots of texture.
I knew just what stamps I was going to use. 
Had just released a new Stamp plate Jack-O Lantern
Cute kids and candy ready for Halloween
I stamped up the images on white tissue.
I added some crinkle shred for lots of extra texture.
When it was dry I used Distress inks to add lots of fun colors.
Stamped up the Pumpkins and Boo words and added to the front.
On the second page I added more texture and the stamped images 
making sure the little girl showed through the window.
Some fun Halloween candy ,colorful papers and Dresden trim.
I had some cool spider web paper from my stash I used as the background.
The Haunted Mansion Chandelier came from Retro Cafe Art
Added the stamped images.
The next page brings a colorful scene for a Harvest Ball.
Also used images from the Stamp plate
 Danse Macabre-Skeleton Ball

The final page done in dark of night. Perfect for Trick or Treating.
I stamped several of the images in white to show up
against the dark background.
The cat cut out is also from Reto Cafe Art..
I plan on illustrating a story to go along with the pages.
A Special treat for Halloween.
