"Dream" Challenge and Christmas Tagsl

Below are a couple of samples I created for the "Dream" Customer Challenge.  I used some Cinderella images on my two cards.  If there were anyone who had a dream in life, it was Cinderella.

I used a book page for the background on this card.

Below are my Christmas tags.  This first tag is a little unusual for me as I have never made a tag go sideways.  All images are from Gecko Galz.

Peaceful Christmas

Nothing exemplifies a peaceful environment as a snowfall on the landscape.  Here I have taken one digital from Gecko Galz and cut it to make two matching tags.  Glittering snowflakes were added.

Here I have two pages from a Christmas book I  have been working on.  These also use a couple of Gecko Galz digitals.

Moonlight and Magic

Moonlight and Magic is the theme for February's Customer Challenge.  My sample has a distance moon on which I placed a Geck Galz image.  I decreased her size so she would fit on the moon and used butterfly wings as her angel wings. The background is a collage of papers.

I have just started putting tutorials on YouTube and I would love for all my visitors to this blog to find them and then subscribe.  This is my first attempt at this so please bear with me as I am learning and my first videos are not the best.

You can find my videos here.

Also please offer suggestions on how I can improve.  Just send them to    There are 4 videos in all.  PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!

Tag Tuesday

I decided to do things a little different this year by entering a number of challenges.  My first entry is for a "New Beginning" theme on Tag Tuesday.  This tag emphasizes the Beginning with a background that is vast, void of shape.  I took watercolors and combined the blue that would be the sky, the green and brown that would become the earth.  Time began at creation  The clocks in the background were  made with a glittery gold paste.  The words were made with my label maker and the girl is a sticker.
