A Little Bit of My Mind's Eye Goodness

I can't remember when I have enjoyed a CHA release more than this past Spring. In fact, several of my favourite releases came from My Mind's Eye. Two Scrapbook Friends, my dearly beloved local Scrapbook Store received their shipment and I was all over it! In fact, I was so enthusiastic about it they let me have it for my Design Team kit! I love those TSF girls!

The first design I created is called Just Like You. It is about a beautiful photo that Angela Smith of Waterloo took. It features a smiling photo of my son and some sweet little daisies.The photo is special because those flowers were growing in rough terrain. They were surviving hardships and yet, were a beautiful part of life. It reminded me of some of the hardships my Max endures in life; that he grows tall and strong and beautiful.
Most of you, who know me well, know I am not a big fan of FLOWERS for flower's sake and I really don't like them very often on masculine pages. I am a big believer in "meaning' in our embellishments. So when my BFF Ann saw this lone daisy, she said right away: "A Flower?" but being the BFF she is, she got the meaning of that lone daisy.   I should confess that I did try OTHER embellishments but the flower worked out the best. I also used a sketch from my pal, Laura Whitaker.
The next design is of my sleeping dolly when she was such a little girl. Still had her blankie and her 'tootie'.
I decided on a centralized design and a layering of the great patterns of this line.
The little letters are Momenta and are raised and sort of puffy. I love this size! The buttons are CTMH and the swirl is cut by my Silhouette. Did you hear? Two Scrapbook Friends are carrying the CAMEO Silhouette and all the accessories!
Finally a few cards, using this line :
This card is made using circles! I just rolled them gently on my knee with a pencil until they took this shape!

Some great strips again with some zigzag stitches.
This final card features a rose from Prima with nice chunky glitter. You can actually make the roses for yourself and I will be doing a brief tutorial in the very near future!

I hope you'll invest in some My Mind's Eye from Two Scrapbook Friends...I still have lots of product left over and already have plans for it!
Until next time, keep doing what you love to do!
