Here are 4 of the 7 halloween cards that I made. Forgot to take pictures of the other 3 before sealing them in their envelopes. Below is the inside of the middle card. The eyes are on accordin folded paper so the eyes pop out when the card is open. All the older nieces and nephews got explopding candy. I have to make a trip to the dollar store today to buy some soft candy for the 2 little ones that are only 2 years old.
Peggy and I have went to a few crops at Scrappin Friendzee and when ever she sees a new face in the store. She take time out and introduces herself and helps them. This lady and her little girl came into the store with a stack of pictures. The lady was looking for someone to scrapbook the pages for her. Peggy said that she should scrap the pages herself because it is such a personal thing. Well the lady did not expect to be scrapping that day, but her and her daugther did 2 - two page layouts and a title page and she was hooked. Can't wait to see the finished album.
Finished my #4 painting. My son wants to sell my paintings. My sister's brother in law wants to buy my 1st painting. I am not selling any of them I painted them for my living room wall. I have now sketched out my 5th painting.
The PINK crop was held at Scrappin Friendzee at 2201 Barataria Blvd, Marrero, Louisiana on Friday, Oct 8 and Saturday, Oct 9, 2009. I attend on Saturday and worked on cards for the troops. I completed 20 cards. While there we were asked to decorate a pink breast cancer ribbon. I did not bring anything pink all christmas cardstock and paper. But be hold I did search my paper container hoping that I had something to decorated with and I did, one magenta cardstock and a very small piece of a pattern pink cardstock. So yes I was able to create a little something to put on my ribbon. It was a memory ribbon for my mom, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1991.
I am really on a roll another painting just a simple craw-de-lis painting. I am sure I could use lots of instruction on painting, but I am having fun just doing it on my own. So here it is the 3rd painting.
Instead of doing a paper piecing class last month (September) at Shey Lynne's crop at Cucos's the group worked on flowers. I cut flowers from the circut and showed the ladies how to use a stylus to give the flower a 3d look and some texture. Here is the end results.
In the world of scrapbooking I am known by several different names.
Memorycollector is my name for my online group called "The Crop Room".
Paper Piecing Patty is the name that Garnet (MeMe Cat), and the Scrapping Cats started to call me, and everyone at the Scrapbook Cottage.
The Scrappin Packin Mommas, which is a group of 15 ladies in Harvey, Louisiana that meets once a month to scrapbook. Each of the ladies in the group has a momma name, and they named me Momma 411. The name stuck since I am the resourse person of the group.
