Yay!  Get ready, I'm able to share all the projects I've been working on for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine!  I use a one-word title.  I had fun with lots of inking (Ranger inks) and clear glaze over my rub on (the wings) to make them demensional! It gives it the look of epoxy stickers.
The layout is about my Granmother. What brings me joy is seeing parts of my her (she passed in 1994) in myself.  My smile, my hair, and the stories I tell my kids.  One big thing I remember is her "white lies" she'd tell to make my sister and I do what she wanted us to do.  To make us eat she'd say that if your stomach was hungry and unfed, it would start eating our intestines!  Or if you crossed your eyes and a gust of wind blew, you'd have crossed-eyes forever!  SERIOUSLY! We believed her for years!  I find myself telling my kids similar things! LOL!  They're just fibs, right?

We've been busy with lots of summer happenings.  I've also been extra busy with projects.  I'm having way too much fun'll see!
