Feelin' a Little Crappie!

Tonight we are off to a Crappie Fish Fry at Kirk's aunt and uncle's house. No, I did not spell that wrong! It's actually pronounced "croppie". They are pretty darn good! Last week the Nut Feed, this week we are eating Crap. LOL!

Here are a few things I created last night. My friend Denise wanted me to make four canvases for her wall, one for each of her family members. She picked this photo of Sarah even though I've already done two other layouts with it! It's her favorite. I wish the photo showed how cool the shimmery paint on the canvas looks! I did a little Christmas layout with some of the leftovers from this project.

 

 

 


And speaking of shimmery paints...

I saw my friend Kim today. She excitedly told me all about a brand new product called Shimmerz Paints. They are super glittery paints that adhere to everything. Check out their blog here. She is sending me some of the paints to play with. I can't wait. I'll be sure to share the finished products with all of you!

I'm sure tonight will be another late one. I got a happy little package from Denise today with the fabulous Making Memories Passport collection, some Tim Holtz stamps and some fabulous trims. I'm sure I'll be creating when I get home! Oh, I didn't even mention the ridiculous amount of new stuff I picked up at Archiver's today! Thanks for enabling Kim! :0)

TGIF!
