A gift from Lisa AKA Raining

We are having a fun ATC swap over at Scraps Of Darkness and Lisa (Raining) and I were paired up first. I was so excited to come home last night to this from the Lovely and talented Lisa.  She has layered and inked and glittered her way to a mini masterpiece.  I am HONORED to have this in my craft room and look forward to collecting from all the amazing girls I have the privilege of having in my life.  For anyone who has never been to SOD it's so worth a look, I hope you will join us for lots of fun and inspiration.  Finally, I huge thank you to LISA, the ATC is perfection as is everything you create my friend! Hugs, Jenny

New treasures for me!

A new poppet for the Kitchen!  Hopefully she will make my cooking better :)
Picked this up at the bookstore today.  By far the funniest book I have gotten in a long time, I think I surpass shitty , I am grand poo-bah!  LOL!  Must read, your tummy will ache with all the laughter.
A little find on Etsy via The Magic Bean by Laineybean.  I fell in love with this set and finally ordered. Can't wait to see it in person!

My Sam 3 years ago playing on the beach.  He had this moment of hesitation as he explored the beach and ocean for the first time.  This lasted about 5 minutes and then there was no stopping him.  I have used "Jamaican Sunset" from Scraps of Darkness here.  A bit of mixed media, some fussy cutting and stamping from Tim Holtz.

Doisneau's L' Enfer circa 1952 in Paris France was a perfect fit for the papers from our Scraps of Darkness Sakurabana kit a couple months back.  This is my take on CraftySprinkles LO titled "A walk in the Woods" for the Robin Robin team two this month.  I am going second this month and am lifting from her, always a pleasure!  Mandy's LO features the tears midpaper and it inspired me to use this pic with these papers as it resembles flames to me, hence L' Enfer.  Gosh, is it halloween yet????  My favorite time of year!
