Once upon a time



Once upon a time

Once upon a time, not so long ago, I was one of those frustrated Nokia phone users who had to constantly send my phone in for servicing. The Nokia service centre was located in a building that was home to a scrapbooking store. Yes. My foray into the crafting world has to be credited to the Finnish company that used to sell toilet paper. *LOL* 

How did you get into crafting?

Just a simple layout featuring my older brother when he was 11 months old. I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and the BabyKiddoCutie Paper Craft Kit from Gauche Alchemy. Mist splatters and some handstitching on one edge. MS punch and brads. Buttons and sequins

Ohhhhhhhhhhh I love love love this Yvonne! I loveeeeee the photos, the sequins, the paint...and I love love loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that stitching!! Thanks soooooooooooooo much for playing along with Sketchy Thursdays!! And lets see... I got into scrapbooking I found out when I was BORN! LOL! My Mom used to put EVERY card that my Grandma sent me (and any photos of me and my Grandma) and then acted like I "wrote" all the captions in the book!! Sooooooooooooo fun! And then I also made a scrapbook for my Aunt when I was in the 7th grade....so I guess you could say I have been at this for awhile!

Oh so fun! The dots, buttons and brads add such a colorful touch - what a way to use a border punch too!
I have been crafting since I was little - my Mom claims she has no crafting skills, but she decorates cookies, so I will go with I got it from her! A friend bought me stamps and ink pads for a B-day present many, many, years ago - that started me on paper crafts.
