I have been busy for two weekends in a row I have had fall family photo shoots. Both paying jobs. I still have doubts sometimes that I am worth paying for. Wait that sounds bad that my photography skills are worth paying for but people keep asking me and they paid so whats a girl to do.

I have a wedding that I am shooting this weekend. Not a paying gig. She offered but I said I would do it in lieu of buying them a gift.

I ran across this picture of Kyler today and it made my smile. It was taken right after I came back from my New York trip. I think he was happy for me to be home.

Scrappy Jo's - My Product Review and Monthly Projects

This month I got the opportunity to try a product I have always been interested in - Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. To say that this product is versatile would be an understatement. There are just so many things you can use this on: paper, acrylic, metal, fabric, and chipboard!

The first thing I did was read up on Glimmer mist on the Tattered Angels website. I highly recommend that you start there.

Next up I used a Decorative Corner Glimmer Screen Stencil. I laid it over the craft paper spraying the mist over top, leaving the negative space of the Decorative Corner. I did this multiple times. Making my own paper in a way for the background for this card.

Lastly I applied a generous amount of glimmer mist to Decorative Corner Glimmer Screen Stencil. I then placed the Decorative Corner Glimmer Screen Stencil directly to the paper. and lifted it up off the paper. I really loved the look of it but felt it wasn't dark enough. I let the design dry and did it again and came out with this.  

Here are my other projects for the month many of them feature Glimmer Mist too!

To purchase any of the paper in my layouts or the glimmer mist Make you way over to Scrappy Jo's Store

Weekend Leaves

I forgot to post this last weekend. We have been having such nice weather that we raked some of our leaves and Kyler took that opportunity to do what kids do.
