8 1/2 x 11 Challenge

I wanted to challenge myself to use one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and scraps and make tags/mini cards.  I used the unBEARably cute plate from Rogue Redhead Designs Getting Grizzly.

Stamps: Sentiments, Crawling bear, Bear with honeypot, Sitting bear, Bees, Honey comb and Corner flourishes from Getting Grizzly plate.

I colored the bear with honeypot and bees with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, the crawling bear with colored pencils and blender pen and I left the sitting bear white.

1st Recycled Project

Going out to get the mail is both fun, and depressing :) i think you'd agree.  Receiving packages and cards, FUN. Finding bills and junk mail, DEPRESSING.

So when I went out to get the mail the other day and we had received 4, yes 4, of the same flyer's from our insurance company, one for everyone family member no matter the age. I felt I had to make something.

The stamps I used are from the NEW full-sized plate Getting Grizzly from Rogue Redhead Designs.
Which is still on sale! Click Here to shop.

This is what I came up with...Hope you enjoy :)

This is what I started with.

Stamps: Honey Comb, Bears in tree, Crawling bear, Honeypot bear, Standing bear, Backward sitting bear, Single bear in tree, Sentiment and Forward sitting bear from Getting Grizzly plate

My oldest had the job of coming up with the story :) He did a good job.

I Miss You

I saw this set and immediately knew I had to create a LO with My Grandpa and Grandma Frost.

 Stamps: Couple, Pennant and Sentiment from Just Sayin' plate

I would like to share with you my journaling...

I Miss you. I Miss your phone calls. I Miss Grandpa always calling me about changing my oil. I Miss Grandma always calling me worried after watching the weather channel. I Miss you guys constantly saying "WHAT?" and having to repeat myself so may times during a phone call. I couldn't even begin to guess how many times, a call, that would happen. I Miss rolling my eyes, looking at Tom and him shaking his head listening to me repeat myself. I Miss you. And I would give anything to hear you both ask me WHAT? again.

Thanks for visiting and reading :)
