Who doesn't love a Friday when its a SOUS 
reveal? I do I just love all the amazing talent at SOUS.

The title was cut on the Cricut using the Blackletter Cart.
Various punches for the stars, glitter, the papers are the fabulous Creative Imaginations Harry Potter Line.
LOVE IT!!!!
The scroll I handmade using papyrus paper, DAS clay (love this stuff), and cording.
The frame is actually in the paper collection from Creative Imaginations.
Look closely and see Dusty's forehead he was 9 3/4 months old (WINK) and learning to stand and walk
he had a crash....and of course Cody and his imagination says.......He looks like Harry Potter, well the rest is history! Love it!
When I bought the paper I said in the store.....Dusty Potter I Presume!!
Our whole family loves Harry Potter!!!!! We could forever watch the movies!!!
Not to mention the book.....over and over!!

The owl was from Silhouette SD called snowy owl. I loved how it turned out.
I used Copics C00-C02 to add the highlights.

Say It With Letters Dress Bodice for Hair Clips and Bows

Dress Bodice from Say it with Letters which trust me the photos don't do it any justice...it is SOOO GORGEOUS!
It looks just like a real dress. This is to hang on little girls walls to place their hairbows and clips.

The bodice is great to decorate in any color and style
a perfect gift for any little girl.


The tulle is shiny and soft. The ribbon is satin and the ric-rack is the Disney Tinkerbell roll.

I first lined the bodice with batting to help give it that soft look and and deminsion.
I used a hot glue gun to glue the items on. I bought everything at Wal-Mart yeah our Wal-Mart still has fabric!!

I had so much fun making this and it went together real fast.
I love the colors and the texture I can just see it hanging on my granddaughters wall.
Shhh a birthday gift for Miss Abigail!!
She will be five in June!


This bodice can be purchased at Say it With Letters also check out the Say it with Letters Blog.
       Hello again, I know as my head hangs low....I have MIA......It has been the craziest past two months. I had posted before about my 17yo dd breaking her leg (who just turned 18), well she had surgey on a Thursday in March. My oldest dd Alexis who is graduating from college calls us on her 22 birthday after we had just went to town to get her gift an hour from my house, she says " Daddy I just broke my leg" my husband was like YOUR KIDDING! No she said and we left and drove over two hours to the hospital she had broke and dislocated her leg. She had her surgey the following Thursday...so long story short exactly one week the two girls had surgey on their legs one right and one left! WOW! I have been trying to adjust to all this and now I feel like I have and able to add Amandas chores and duties to my list of to dos. I have been a little late with things and behind on some stuff...but I am catching up and rolling again. I of course still have had my garden going, and it looks AWESOME!! I have made 40 charms fro Inspired and 29 charms for Art and Soul. Twenty two journal pages front and back for Inspired, and 20+ ATC cards....so I have not been short on creating. Anyhoo here is a post of the bodice with details under each picture. I would love to see your version if you direct me to it. Thanks so Much!! Hope everyone has a great weekend and happy creating! Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop

Stuck On You Sketches "The Lips of an Angel"

SOUS Blog Challenge this week using the ever so talented Beggahuna.
Using the wonderful papers of Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection
The picture is of my beautiful granddaughter Abigail who is four. Her lips are red from the lipstick
she was wearing playing dress up. She even has a feather boa around her neck.
The flowers are Prima and the rub ons are Basic Grey.
Tulle around the ring.
I inked and stamped the background using the Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger.


The wings are chipboard painted then crackled. The pins are Maya Road. Vintage lace and buttons. The pink butterfly
is from Wal-Mart. The other butterflies are handmade by me. The title is cut from Silhouette SD.

Abigail is like an Angel to us..and I thought this quote fit so well.
Angels are direct creations of God, each one a unique Master's piece.
