The Blogger Scramble!

What is a Blogger Scramble you ask?

Well its a lot of fun where I completely let go of any ideas or notions of what I want to see featured and let the team create what they are inspired to do.

and as usual in this 'Anything Goes' Challenge, the team does not disappoint.

so without further ado let the inspiration begin...

My project for this Dare is an 8x10 mixed media canvas 
mounted on a pallet frame that features a photo of my Great-great grandmother.
This combines my 2 loves - paper crafting & genealogy.
Check out the full post at Paradise Lost


I decided to go for another mixed media heart - all done using some of the fab Emerald Creek embossing powders and charms and Tim Holtz Distress goodness. To create art that has meaning you have to be on fire about it. There's no real art without passion. And it is that passion that will let you and your art shine bright.
Don't miss the full details at Von Pappe2


for my piece this week i immersed myself into the whole creation of a piece from my heart. i have recently acquired a photo of my mother at a little over a year old that i have wanted for a long time. i wanted to create a piece that does it justice and i believe i accomplished that. i have my whole heart into this one piece and i laughed and cried and enjoyed. i figure if one creates a piece from the heart it shows. more can be found at missusgmoments

For the Anything Goes Dare I decided to create my first ever Mixed Media scrapbook layout featuring a step sibling photo. I love how combining the embossing powder, charms and brads all from Emerald Creek added awesome highlights on my layout.  And of course I couldn't finish my layout without adding some fantastic products from Tim Holtz and Ranger. The steps to my fun layout are over at Katelyn Grosart Blogspot

Anything Goes?! I was excited for this one because I was thinking in a beachy direction. But I decided that for me, this Dare was going to be Anything Goes that is not in your usual pile of "go to's"! So I pulled out my beautiful Angel Fish stamp and brads from Emerald Creek and my Gelli Plate and of course my Tim Holtz Distress Paints and Sprays and my new to me Wendy Vecchi stamps. Please come and see all the details on my blog Amethyst Dragonfly's Alcove.


For this Anything goes Challenge I wanted to use Sweet Valentine and Burnt Copper Embossing powder from Emerald Creek. On my this canvas, pink heart and Picture wheel have fabulous layer of heat embossed powders. I've also used hummer stamp and butterfly charms from Emerald Creek store. To know more about this project pls visit my blog Neon Diary.

For my anything goes, I have been so busy doing a plethora of production and various creative moments, the piece I choose to display is the tribute to Karon as she embarks on new journeys with her family. Don't forget to follow her blog Karons Krafty Korner . We love you Karon, thank you for all of these moments and creations. MWA
