New DT Position

I've been asked to join the executive DT at! I love the diner, it's such a quaint site with lots of friendly ladies and tons of inspiration. If you've never visited this site, you must! There's so much going on over there this month; the diner is celebrating it's first birthday and there's a crop at the end on the month. More details here This is also a great place to shop, I swear Sher is the fastest shipper in the west!

Here are a few of the projects that I created with product from scrap-diner:

This photo is all 6 of my mom's grandchildren- we haven't seen my brothers son for 3 years (just about his entire life) and when we were finally able to do so I couldn't resist taking this picture!

I took the main color from me niece's shirt since she's the only girl in the picture. The journalling is very simple, 6 cousins all together...finally!

I painted the chipboard brown, then used a stylus to dot white paint, and finished it off with paper glaze for a smooth shiny look.
You might need your shades to view this LO- LOL! I used KI Memories lace cardstock as a mask for the background with I sprayed with 2 different colors of glimmer mist (gold and sandy beach). I drew the 2 flight patterns by hand, which puts me in the mind of 2 rambunctious little boys. I then sprayed the Tat chip dragon fly with sandy beach glimmer mist and added orange stickles to the embossed pattern. I then covered cardstock sticker dragonfly with stardust stickles.

I've wanted to scrap this picture of my mother in law since I took it a year ago. the journaling reads: Some women get "monster-in-laws" and I feel for them. I was lucky enough to get Renee. She has always treated me with respect and as if I were her own daughter. We can talk about anything and are a lot alike. She understands my moodiness- yeah, I'm lucky!

I sprayed sandy beach glimmer mist on the Creative Imaginations paper to add a little pattern to it and on the flower patterned piggy tales paper to mute the color.

I finally found a craft knife that agrees with me (the one by Heidi Swapp)! I used it to cut away the paper between the teal brackets, mounted it on the lime with white polka dots paper to add a little visual interest.

More glimmer mist and stickles here. I sprayed the Tat chip owl with gold glimmer mist and then added stickles to the embossed pattern.
