The Perrys

The picture used in the LO is of my DD, DH and myself taken at a family reunion in Chicago. I used this LO for a Technique Tuesday Challenge over at Scraps of Color, the challenge was to used pattern paper background. I used paper from a heirloom paper pack and a MS family punch and the cricut cartridge Don Juan for the title.

I created this LO for a posted sketch challenge over on the cricut MB but I didn't use my cricut for any part of it. I used pictures taken of DD while we were in Chicago, she's wearing a hat that once belonged to her father. When he saw the pictures he wasn't happy that it was all pushed in!

Family Ties

This is the first LO that I created using pictures from a recent family reunion in Chicago last month. I also created this LO for a challenge posted over on the Cricut MB. I cut the butterfly using the wrap from a cricut cartridge and colored it with alcohol inks; this was my first time using alcohol inks. These pictures were taken for the Saturday evening banquet where the requested attire was African. I used pictures of my DD, DH and MIL.

Sisters Rule

I created this LO for one of the Technique Tuesday challenges over at Scraps of Color. I used a picture of me and my two sisters, I don't know the exact year but I do know that it was Christmas Day and we were at a family dinner! I love this picture of us especially since it is one of the few pictures I have of the three of us. I used misc pattern paper and some foam stickers from the $1 zone at Target. I picked the embellishment up from ACM a few months back.

Chicago Cows

We recently went to Chicago for a family reunion. I took pictures of these cows in the Midway Hotel Center where we had the reunion. We have had fish here in Richmond and mermaids in VA Beach.
