Butterfly clusterz 2 by CryztalRain ad Deviant Scrap

Back today with my layout titled Enjoy life using Cryztal Rain's beautiful Butterfly Clusterz 2.  Tried to combine my city roots-I grew up in Sprinfield, Mass with my love of my new home here in Florida-notice the palm tree?  Used the butterfly to hopefully tie it all together.  Butterflies have always symbolized growth to me and I just love thes butterflies by CryztalRain Designs. You can find all of CryztalRain's Kits at Deviant Scrap.

Flora Finery by SherrieJD at Deviant Scrap

Oh....I have been highly negligent in my blogging duties.  Tonight I am here with a new kit by SherrieJD and Tangie Baxter called Flora Finery.  Flora Finery is the NEWEST addition to "sprout" in the {Ultimate Art Doll} collections! There are an amazing 175+ pieces of garden and aviary art doll fodder! All made to work perfectly with the other collections in the series!  If you haven't discovered art dolls yet you are in for a treat.  Remember all those times you spend as a child dressing your paper dolls?  Folding all those tabs?  Well, forget the tabs-with art dolls you can create your own doll and dress her the way you want.  Combine torsos, limbs, tails (yes, I said tails)....the possibilities are endless.  Here's my page:

I ued a premade dolly-instead choosing to dress her up with the additition of some feathers and greenery. A gal can always use a few more feathers! 

As I mentioned earlier my poor blog has been neglected.  I have lots of photos to show you that I hopefully will get to in the next few days.  Jess finished horse camp and started school-and of course I have photos of it all.  And she celebrated her 12th Birthday.  We've been busy!  I soon!

Ankh by Crystal Rain at Deviant Scrap

Blogging's been a little off this month.  Have to blame it on the summer season.  Everything is kind of out of sync.  Jess is getting ready to go back to school on Monday and between getting her ready for that and the final days of horse camp well...I just don't know where the time goes!  But CryztalRain over at Deviant Scrap had been busy.  She released two new kits this week-Ankh and Ankh ATC add on.  Both are Egyptian themed and fabulous.  Great for scrapping all those Egyptian photos, camel rides, or art journaling.
Here's what I created:

When I saw this I couldn't get that Bengles song out of my head-You know the one-Walk like an Egyptian!  Or am I dating myself.  Anyway...... While I was working on this the girls-Jess and Sofia- decided they wanted in too.  Something about the exotic Egyptian theme really  appealed to both of them.  Here's their pages.

Jess's page is the one with the photos.  Sofia's creation features that awesome snake.  They both did a great job! And now I can't stop singing.....Walk like an nananaa......
