i am not sure how it can POSSIBLY be thursday – where on earth did my week go – i seriously feel like yesterday was the weekend…probably in part because i feel a bit like the walking dead lately. i have been totally unable to fall asleep at night for a week – so i lay there awake wishing i could sleep instead BLECH! might be time for a little tylenol PM i think! the worst part – I STILL HAVE NOT BEGUN ON MY DOLLHOUSE!!!! but perhaps today is the day…Pezza and I did pick up some expired wallpaper sample books while getting our paint and we went through them this morning – SUH-WEEEET stuff. i LOVE wallpaper but i never really want it on my WALL. we tore out LOADS of ones we like – some will go in the dollhouse but most will be showing up on future paper crafts and decoupage projects!
i HAVE been playing with the kittens of course and wow are they EVERYWHERE. cutest pics EVER at the end of this post!

i LOVE these bright colors! i know the yellow is Bo Bunny but i am not sure about the blue…and NO my die cut is NOT Cricut (gasp). i was recently sent a Sizzix eClips to review for Craft Critique and this little flower was my first cut. How does it rate? How is it compared to Cricut? for that you will just have to wait for my review on Craft Critique. if you do not already subscribe you should – i have been reading it for years and it is a wealth of straight forward crafty information!
My main image is Dressy Marci from Lala Land Crafts. I just love their designs! She is colored with colored pencils – nope not copics.
I used Derwent Coloursoft pencils and the Derwent blender pencil (no gamsol or other solvent). Here’s one of the great things about colored pencil – i am working in completing my color collection of these a little at a time. so I did not have a color that matched my blue paper. no problem – i just layered two pencils so it matched perfectly. So what’s different about these compared to the Prismas?
and now of course – i have to include kitten cuteness:
be sure to tune in tomorrow to see what cool stuff i have been doing for SCACD!
