Sunshine Canvas

I found a 3 pack canvas panels 8x10 on clearance awhile back and thought I would use them.  Also thought I would use one for an Imagine Challenge using the Sun from Imagine More Cartridge over on Jen's Scrap Closet

I used the Sun and the boarder from the Imagine More Cartridge, I then used Sentimentals Cartridge for the Welcome part and shadow.  The little bubbles and butterflies I added are Creative Memmories items I had won a few years ago at a retreat.

I raised everything to give it a more 3D affect.

Birthday Block

I decorated this glass block for my Mother-In-Law for her Birthday.  I wanted to give her something of spring because we have had so much snow and ice here in Indiana, we are all so ready for it.  I cut the red, purple, blue and yellow butterfly from the Sentimentals cartridge I won as blog candy from  Royal Thinhgs  The Bunches of Blooms and the swril  I cut from the Cheerful Seasons Cartridge from Creative Memories.  My mother-in-law LOVES red so that is why the vinyl is in red.

This is the back side of the block showing all the butterflies

I glued the butterflies together after using a pencil on them to roll the wings up.

Rolling the wings up I thought gave it a good 3D affect in the block.

Another IMAGINE Layout

This is a layout of a picture of me with my youngest a couple of years ago.  We were messing around with a new camera I got.  Well I just love the JT Imagine Cart and used it on this layout.  The words are from Graphically Speaking cut out on the imagine also using black ink and layering them.

I layered the wicked 3x....I really love the possibilities you can do with this Imagine, LOVE IT!!!

The wings are from the JT cart also and I also used Creataive Memories Chalking Ink brown and black.

 I used the chalking ink on the wite background here as well, along with Creative Memories buttons and Stampin up blue twine in the buttons.  Then added a few embellishments above our pictures.

Thansk for looking!!

Another Layout with IMAGINE

I am really enjoying my "I" I got as a christmas present.  I wish I had 24  hours a day to spend playing with it.  I think I need to find a job where I can just create and play all day.  Anyway, I realy liked this photo of my oldest.  We were camping and he was relaxing in the shade.
 Thanks for looking! 

Everything you see on the paper including the paper I created with the IMAGINE!!  Love this machine!!!

Have a great day!!!
