Here's What's Been Happening...

Greetings! Michael and I went to this amazing movie today...I was especially interested in seeing this true story because my mom has been following Mr. Lopez' articles in the Los Angeles paper ever since the beginning; and she was so inspired by them that she has been sending them to me to read too. Both Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey do an awesome job. Check out the trailer here.

This week's song at Scrapping The Music is "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson. It's a beautiful song - come on over and play along with us! Here's my take on the challenge...
I busted out one of my Q-Tea kits for this layout - I've been wanting to use that beautiful Danyeela paper for a long time and this was the perfect opportunity! Everything is from the kit except for the houndstooth fabric, dictionary paper, and some jewelry wire that I used to dangle the charms from the crocheted flower. I used oil crayon to frame the photo.

The journaling is a lyric from the song and it says "...and I love the way you call me baby, and you take me the way I am."

Oh, and p.s. I don't know if you had heard the sad news that Q-Tea kits was closing down after their May kit; but they just recently posted on their blog that they won't be closing down after all! They have a new owner coming on that will start with the June kit! Yeayyy! Check it out here.

I also want to let you know that on Wednesday I will be posting the first of three step-by-step tutorials that I did for my final project catwalk projects. The projects include: 1. Gaffer Tape Mosaics; 2. Making the Most of Your Patterned Paper; and 3. Modsheet "Favorites" Mini-album. I'm so excited to be able to share these projects with you!

Take care my scrappy friends and I will be back tomorrow with another update!

Thanks for sharing about the movie.
I'll be looking out for it. The music is playing in the background now while I am looking at things and it is beautiful.

I am looking forward to the movie, but I think I will need plenty of tissue.

STM song is one of my favorites. I usually am singing it in the car. I like your take on it.

Love that background paper on your layout! It looks handpainted - like something we could try after taking the AJ class? ;)
