About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

SC410, Seaside Memories

Happy Saturday.  Today I did a card from SCS Sketch Challenge SC410.  Taylor made a cute sketch but for some reason it took me quite a while to come up with something.  I'm in one of those creative slumps again.  Anyway, I just got a new stamp set off ebay by Crafty Secrets called Seaside.  I just love that little tot on the shore.  So I went from there.  Using a Tim Holtz water brush, I filled it with Dove solution.  (I saw it on youtube once and wanted to try it)  I put Distress ink right on my craft sheet and used that as a pallet.  I also used Glossy Accents on the hat, shovel and pail. 

 The idea of a net was from my friend Lou Ann (Crooker Stamper)  from her scrapbook LO Catch of theDay.Thanks Lou Ann!
