Victopia Projects!

Victopia is a casual event. We bring our own things to work on. We share ideas and get inspired by the talented people who we meet.

I was truly blessed to get to meet this wonderful woman! For those of you who have not met Kristi or do not know who Kristi is, she is the owner of Hanna Stamps!! She is beautiful, talented and what I always look for in a friend .... she gets my sick and twisted sense of humor!!!!! We have a bit of a wind blown look happenin' here - As soon as we started getting all set to get our picture taken together it started raining. AND.. we are just so sweet we were melting!!! I cannot wait until we get together again!!

This picture shows all the girls who attended Victopia!! We managed to get our pictures done just before the rain set in! These girls are so creative and so much fun. It was good times all around.

I get quite a bit done usually when I go to Victopia. This time was pretty productive as well.!

I love making name frames. I made this one for a friend of mine who just got a new puppy, named Boris. The funky background paper is from the Pet Stack! I love all the papers in it!

This layout I am quite proud of! My son has this talent where when he is in the bathtub he holds his fingers a certain way and can blow big bubbles. I snapped these shots one night while he was in the tub! The letters are traced on Whisper White card stock using the Stampin' Up! chipboard letters. I then stamped the bubbles from the Domestic Goddess Hanna Stamp set. I then coloured all the bubbles with watercolour pencils and a blender pen. Then over top of a few bubbles I put some baubles (also known as Dew Drops). Then I used some chipboard to make the bubbles and used the Coluzzle to cut the circles. I like the way this one turned out.

I purchased this kit at the Scrappin Bug. Since Vicki is one of my special friends it was only fitting that I put a picture of her and I on this layout. The beautiful lane picture, Vicki took when we visited Winter Wheat last summer. If you ever have the chance to go there - it's near Sparta in Ontario - you should go. It's a very unique place.

I am also pleased with how this layout turned out. Jade (the one in the blue) and Alexis (the one in the pink) have been friends since Junior Kindergarten. Alexis moved to the other side of town, but they have kept in touch. They spend lots of time together. Vicki gave me these designer papers last year and I finally got around to using them! The colours go great with the girls shirts!

This is the layout I came up with for our challenge! Vicki told us to bring 3-5 black and white pictures with us to Victopia. She then gave us the card stock and the designer paper and we had an hour and a half to design a layout. We had to use a bit of each thing she gave us. These are my cats shortly after we brought them home.

This is the card I made for my dad for his birthday. He turns 61 on May 23rd. It's gonna be fun cause my sister Diana is going to be home for his birthday. The great plaid paper is another piece from my Pet Stack! I coloured Riley with the Copic markers. It was my first time using them - and I love them - I need more practice to get good like Vicki and Kristi - but I love love love these markers!!!

So, that's pretty much it, what I got done - besides laughing and shopping!!!

Chow for now,
