~Hello Crafty Monday!~

Good morning my crafty friends!!
Can you believe it is practically the middle of October?
The boys are officially back to school so mommy can create!

As many of you know my scrapbooking has always
been tied deeply into emotion. I am not one of those
"Only the happy moment" scrappers, my scrapbook is a diary
of my life including the bumps and bruises.
Music also inspires me greatly.
I rarely sit down and scrap just for me anymore, but I was
so inspired by Anderson Coopers interview with Eminem last night
I sat down immediately and began scrapbooking a page for my book.
Journaling: I thought you were my friend but you now I see
you take and take more and watch me burn. You never cared about me.
Love the way you lie
Hidden Journaling: I can stand here in the fire and take the pain, I am strong
so keep on watching me, it won't take me down.

I used mostly Ruby Rock It papers and embellishments,
with a sheet of Hambly and also some Maya Road.
The photo, I altered using Photoshop and I layered in flames.
I am pretty happy with the LO I have to admit.
It was fun to scrap just for me :)

I know we have all had those so called friends, this (as always)
was very therapeutic for me.

Now back to my AWESOME FUN Halloween project!
I am covered in Glitter!!!! I hope I get it all done today!
See ya tomorrow.

~Have a beautiful Monday~
~Thank you for stopping by~

I love the sewing over the chipboard letters! I would love to know how you do this.... by machine, but what needle, what type of machine (the one you use for sewing cloths), do you have to clean the machine after sewing on paper, any other hints?

Pinky said...

I just sew over it with my regular needle and use it on fabric too...I know I should change it but i change the needle about 1 X month
