Getting My Scrap On!!!

This weekend I am planning on getting together with my Southern Scrapper Girlfriends and doing a little creating.  First I need to finish my little ATC Cards for the month of April.  I joined a group of ladies that swap ATC's once a month.  We follow different themes each month, which is set by the cruel wicked witch leader. (she makes us wait for the 1st before revealing the new theme, but starts around the 20th of the month with little teasers).  You're a cruel one, Mrs. Grinch.  This month's theme is "Inspirational quotes", wow that's hard because I have sooooo many quotes that inspire me.  Like, this one

“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.” — Louisa May Alcott

And This one



And This

And This is just....  too true...



And this...
 AND this one....
Oh and I can't forget these...


There are plenty more than these but I think I will choose one from above for this little project.  The background for my cards are all hand created.  I used watercolor paper and either painted on them with oil pastels, acrylic paint (matte and pearlescense) and/or glimmer mist.  I will also add some hand painted butterflies and the quote.  I'll post pictures after I'm done. 

I think I will also start working on my altered roledex and I will fill it with these inspiration quotes, and kind of project life type cards, where I can add a small photo and journaling.  Should be interesting!!! 

Have a creative weekend, later.....
