Halloween Wedding at Forever Hollywood Cemetery

Today my youngest brother got married in an incredibly entertaining ceremony at Forever Hollywood Cemetery. Douglas Fairbanks could be said to have been in attendance as it was held on the Fairbanks lawn.

Crazy Hair Day

Well this week was certainly interesting. We had Crazy Hair Day, Door Decoration Contest, and Costume Day. Actually the students did well with the academics, all things considered.
They designed doors for Red Ribbon/Halloween Week. They listened to my ideas and came up with their own. I'm all about empowering kids so gave them access to the supplies they needed and watched what they came up with.

The message states, "Don't do crack or I'll eat you as a snack."

After spending Saturday birding the Ventura ponds, I got out some binders with samples from classes I've enjoyed. I explored for ideas that use glitter for this week's card swap.

After finding some of my favorites, I chose to play around with collage from a Sandra McCall class. I needed some double sided backing much wider than tape, so I headed over to AJ's Scrap Shack. I got what I needed and Amy showed me some amazing glitter strategies! Call them for more information.

The green part of the card is all glitter on two sided tape.

This photo shows the Be Creative™ Tape Sheets that I used for the backing with a collage piece shown from the back.

Weekly Craft Adventure

After an all day birding trip on Saturday it was time for me to get my weekly card done. The challenge of the week was a card with eyelets or embossing. I've wanted to do a fall card with Judikins Four Leaves stamp for quite awhile. So, today was the day. However, what I wanted to do wasn't as easy as I thought. After several tries, I finally ended up with a few passable cards. Look closely and you will notice some problems I had making the cards. Here they are.
