Lo's & altered art I created within the last month

I am now adding the last few things I have access to update at my moms house. I have another two mini albums at home to post tomorrow. So, let's begin shall we???? lol

I created this layout with scraps from the Friends mini album in my previous post. This was the kids doing the pinata at Alicia's luau birthday party! I love using scraps. I call this Pinata Fun! I cut HAPPY out of a piece of scrap birthday paper I had. I added some leftover rubons and a piece of bling in the middle of the flower rubons. I inked all the sides of the papers. I added a few cool sparkle brads from Bo Bunny that I bought at the dream. The little stickers that I am addicted to these days are Making Memories tiny little alpha stickers. I use them on everything these days.

A time to honor using my close to my heart star stamps. I used Reminisce sticker letters that have stars all over them. Stickles were used to add some sparkle to the word TO, which was also created using Stickles. I cut the strip of stars off of a piece of paper I got at the dream. Can't remember who makes it but I added a sticker strip on each side of the star paper. The bottom was also created using stickers.
The Halloween layout was created for a challenge I participated in on It was a to use multiple pictures of anything other than summer things. I loved this Halloween Paper that I bought last year and used it, Like Jenn, I should be using my old stuff but she is better than me because I continue to keep buying spending lots of MULA at the dream, week after week! hehehe. I bought the rubber stickers at the dream for 2.99 for a set of like 5 they are really cool. Had trouble with the stickers they had on it and had to put additional adhesive on it. A friend of mine on had sent me a message saying she makes them at her job in NH. How cool is that. The lil' bat and stars are Cloud9 Designs. The papers are Making Memories as are the tiny alpha. Told you I love um!

The last layout posted, "Life is Good" was created using an awesome find at the Christmas Tree store. I bought this lil' kit by Daisy D's for - 1.99! BARGAINS! I love them. It came with like 4-5 pieces of paper and a pack of rubons. Used my tiny lil' alpha stickers by Making Memories, two rubons that are on the side of the Making Memories Die cut paper are 7 gypsies. I bought those at the paper tree when we took the doodle class. THAT WAS A FUN NIGHT! Added some ribbon I bought while vacationing in Nantucket the beginning of the summer and added some buttons to it!
This is a KaiserCrafts Christmas Wall hanging tree I made Using Robin's Nest pebbles to look like Christmas lights strung on the tree. Used pop dots to cut out the Christmas circle papers and popped them up to look like ornaments. All papers were creative imaginisce new Christmas line papers. Imaginisce - Snowy Jo Winter Christmas Collection - 3 Dimensional Stickers - Tinsel Tags, BRAND NEW was used to journal on. An eyelet at the top for the string. Pic of my dd the first and only time on Santa's lap lol. The ribbon was a newer ribbon the dream put out! It is very thick Ric Rac!

OMG. That's some fierce scrappin. Alicia is gonna love that you scrapped her parties. I wish I had pics from mine when I was younger. I love the clean lines in A Time To Honor. Great pics for you both. I still use your special technique when posing. I got TWO of those kits from Christmas Tree store. Why two? I dunno. I still have yet to use 'em. Finally, LOVED the use of robin's eggs for Christmas lights. I'm so gonna scraplift that idea.
