treasure hunt make and takes redone

This was the make and take from Ruban Rouge - I decided to take and make this one and I am glad I did.

I got thinking and thought that I had plenty of stuff to be able to make a 12x12 page - actually 2 - 12x12 pages

Then I had enough items left over to be able to make 2 6x6 pages

Have I told you how much I love Ruban Rouge - what and awesome make and take.

I also played with the make and take from The Paper Playhouse - I used my texture plates on the background and used glass effects on some of the elements of the mermaid along with adding some glitter.

Off to see what I can do with the other make and takes

my boys

I am such a lucky mom. I have two wonderful, sweet, caring boys who are my world.

Dylan, my artist, was picked as Student of the Month for February. It meant so much to him. The coolest story goes with this.

Dylan loves art and loves going to school on Wednesday's because he has art that day. One morning last week I bumped into his art teacher and I stopped and introduced myself and told him how much Dylan just loves having art with him. Then he told me that he just nominated Dylan for Student of the Month and had the paper in his hand and was going to turn it in. How cool was that, his art teacher is new to the school this year and I have never talked to him. What are the chances that the day that I stop to talk to him is the day that he had wonderful news for Dylan. It meant the world to Dyl that his art teacher was the one that nominated him.

Brandon my athlete. He is playing baseball again this season. He is on the Red Sox (he really was hoping to be on the Yankees -maybe one season). I took one of his pictures from baseball and painted it (on the computer of course). I am having the hardest time learning Corel Painter, but I am determined to master it.
