DSC Gypsy Market Kit

For my September DSC kit, I used my photos from the August Expo. Here, Rosemary and I met Marie, Arlene and Bona. Rosemary saw them first~ she recognized them from their blogs! Alot of smiles and laughter!

On the front cover, I used Marie's technique~ tearing the cardboard to show the coragated areas. I love this idea! Thanks Marie! (A Pretty Paper Boutique). The thick lace piece from the kit I sprayed with Tattered Angels Mist in Olive with a little touch of Copper mist and used it to hold journaling spots and photos.

Lollipop Flowers

Hi Everyone! gosh, it's been a while huh? I've been busy with this and that, and moving my scrappy space downstairs. Not thinking it was going to be such a large project, I soon discovered I had misplaced alot of things during this process but did carry around my kit from DSC, September Gyspy Market. Also, I was in the middle of trying to perfect my lollipop flowers. I cut the circles out, burned the edges (I learned from RoxyCar1) ~ put in the flower centers...........but still wasn't happy with them, something was missing!

I finally perfected them ~to my liking~ by watching Hope, from MsScrappaperScissors.blogspot.com ~ she did a tutorial on her lollipop flowers and added "stickles"! I am on a stickles kick now, and that was it! I used my stickles and I love how my flowers turned out! Thank you Hope for your inspiration! Your technique is exactly what I needed! My favorite stickles are the cinnamon and the new Coffee! I also love the copper! Take a look! (ok, my "image" thingy is doing it again..........so we wait, I'm so impatient!) Help! what am I doing wrong, as this isn't the first time this has happened)Mmm, still waiting..............
