I finally got to try a new technique from the TJ's newsletter that I have seen so many cool examples of, Alcohol Ink Foil. i made some atcs for two of my groups with them. One with the recipient's name included and the other for my Divas group called Changing Seasons. Very hard to photograph so a bit blurry but they are gorgeous in person!

I have been too busy to blog lately! Here are my inchies for my group that swaps month. This month I did Letter "J" is for Jigsaw and Ghosts/Ghouls. I used shrink plastic for the ghosts and colored the backs of them with colored pencil before shrinking. I cut these out with a Sizzix die.

We celebrated little Phillip's first birthday last week-end with a huge party at a park near their home. It was cold, windy, and rainy but a good time was had by all. Phillip slept through the opening of the presents but woke up to have his own personal cake. We took a lot of pictures and this is a four generation shot of my Mom, Kayla, Phillip, and myself. He was a really good boy through all of the noise and excitement especially for a little guy with croup. He was so sick all week and still was not himself but did so good all day!
