November's DT work For The LOVE of Art

This week I am very happy to share the layouts and  other items I created with  the  Authentique "Lively" collection .  First let me give you links to the items in (fantastic) design team kit for November I received:
Petaloo Flowers and Pins, Freckled Fawn Washi Tape, Kaiser Craft pearl strips, Burlap sheet,
Maya Road Trim  and May Arts Mesh.
I loved the mix of supplies and since at first I was stumped as in how I was going to use the burlap I will start off with the card and tag I made from this months box of goodness.
  I took the following items...
 1st I took a can of "June Taylor's Basting Spray" and lightly misted a piece of cardstock and pressed a piece of burlap onto it. If you would like any of these pictures enlarge just click on them.

 Then I ran it through my "Vagabond" machine with the Tim Holtz sizzix butterfly mover and shaper die.
I liked the result so well I tried it again with a couple of more shapes.
Here is my finished card and tag.
I hope you enjoyed the little tutorial. I plan on making some more textured embellishments with the burlap.
Don't forget there is a fantastic sale in the For the Love of Art Store. Go there fast and check it out!
I will share on of my layouts tomorrow. I would love you to come back and take a look.

Carrie Underwood we have been "Blown Away" by you!

Carrie Underwood's cd "Blown Away" hit the stores and once Julie listen she had lots of ideas for photo shoots which of course lead to scrapbook layouts for me!
Carrie's "Goodby Shoes" song and video lent itself to a bit of fun..

Western Digital External Hard-drive

A couple of years ago I was told--you better back up your digital photos on an external hard drive..wish they had said DON'T buy a WESTERN is a 500gb with about 250gb of photos that I can't retrieve on it! according to data recover it will cost between $300-900.00 for recovery --NOPE not me. Luckily since I scrapbook everything has been printed and I can also go to the website that I have print my pictures and have disks burned--a heck of a lot cheaper than $300-900!
A word to be wise-- back up your external hard drive with another method... I am told it isn't a matter of IF the WD hard-drive fails it is WHEN it fails. ..even more ridiculous since it is only 3 years old and has been accessed less than 30 times!
The rep from WD said if it was under warranty he could offer me a replacement--and how would THAT help me? 1 I wouldn't use another of their product for anything other than a door stop and 2 I don't want another I want the pictures I have on this one!

Adventure Awaits us!

  I love walking the beach and watching the birds scurry back and forth as the waves roll in. Thank you for visiting!!
