Corrugated What? Alphas??

It is a beautiful Friday morning here. The sun is shining again, and I really really like that! Sunshine makes my day oh so bright!

Tomorrow is shaping up to be a bit of a busy day. Will be heading back to Joy, TX. Taking care of more "momma-do's", then we will head into town. Spend some time with the kids and maybe take in a movie. However the day is spent I know it will be enjoyable!

Speaking of "momma-do's", here is the next page for her album. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. The young girl standing with one sock down is my dear sweet grandmother. I love this picture! It's always hard to think of your parents as young kids, but your grandparents? This picture has always managed to make me smile from the first time I discovered it. I think it will bring a smile to my mothers face too.

The first weekend in Dec. my mother's brother, sister, and sister-in-law's will be coming to visit along with several of my cousins. We have lots of fun planned for the weekend but that's when I'm planning on showing this little puppy. I need to get it in gear and get more pages done because that's not far off.

I used a few new techniques on this layout. Well new to me! While taking a class at the Tulsa expo, which by the way I will be sure to attend each year, I learned to paint a chipboard letter and then stamp on it in white ink to give it a different look. I thought that was pretty cool!
I did some more Glimmer Misting on the flowers. They were all originally white. While misting on them some of my glimmer ran onto a flower of another color...hence the green flower with different colored tips... at first I was like Oh No..but then after a second look I was like...Hey, not to bad! I used my new Prima Pearl flower centers on this page. I really really like them!

Now on to my new find. Corrugated Alphas. These little puppies are really cute. They come in a sheet and are brown. Have a cardboard look. I just used a little of my new favorite Glimmer Mist and did my own thing with them. They are different and I do like the look they give the page. A little extra dimension and texture. I can see myself using these again and again.

My little mistake of a flower didn't turn out to bad now did it!

This is it for page 3. Told you I needed to get it in gear. The kitchen is almost done so I will soon be back to scrapping more.
Products used in this layout are papers from Bazzil, My Minds Eye, Core-dinations, Graphic 45 and Stampin Up. I never before really paid much attention to the paper from Stampin Up, but it is fast becoming a favorite of mine.
Embellies from Prima, Jillibean Corrugated Alphies, My Little Shoebox chipboard letter, Quick Quotes Vellum, and Stampin Up.

Wow, I am learning from you girl! I need to try that white stamp technique. And just last week I bought some little square ink pads for a buck and one was white. Love the corrugated letters too. I wish I could be there to see your family's faces when you bring out this very special priceless gift. You are doing awesome!

Thanks for the white ink tip....never even thought of white being an ink colour. And your oops flower is beautiful, the flower centers are gorgeous and the whole layout is just fabulous (and no, I'm not sucking up for anything, I really, really mean it!).
What a wonderful treasure you're creating for your mom!

Great job. Love the picture, family will love it. The flowers turned out perfect. Can't wait to see how the rest turn out.

Great layout, Lisa. The "oops" flower looks cute, and it looked like you had meant it to turn out that way.

Love those corrugated letters - I still haven't gotten any of that Glimmer Mist stuff. But it's officially on the list, really like that look. And your flower centers are to die for. Looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
