My happy place and some Moxie card creations

Thursday, February 25, 2010

I never really thought about my happy place until I was doing my online training for SDU and there was a layout the instructor created titled "my happy place" It got me thinking and really my happy place is Manahattan Beach.

{I am so pleased with how this picture that I took turned out after playing with it in Picnik}

It's 10 mins from my home and we try to get there as many Sunday evenings as possible to walk with the kids. It's just so beautiful. Of course my happy place at home is my scrappy area, it may be small but crafting really fulfills something inside of me. This last year I have made so many new friends and strengthened relationships with others and I'm really thankful for them all. I just love the sisterhood of this hobby!

Speaking of my hobby, here's a few cards I made for the Moxie fab Olympics of Stamping. First up is my entry for the birthday themed card...

I am in love with my new Hero Arts large Chandelier stamp. It's wood mounted and big! Love this large image! I added some silver Stickles to make it bling and the silver embellies at the base are Hero too. I'd love to submit this to the Stamping Royalty Contest but instead it's going in the mail to my longtime friend Kim, who's birthday is today! Happy Birthday friend!!

Next is my Love entry

For this card I used 7Gypsies paper {yummy}, kraft from Paper Tray inks, a Maya Road craft tag, Kisses stickers for Adorn it, Japanese masking tapes (3 styles) from Love My Tapes and some silver Stickles.
Be sure and check out the Moxie Fab blog for some amazing giveaways! You'v still got a chance to enter!
Thanks for stopping by!
