Good Morning, Hoppers! It is early and it is National Scrapbook Day, so what am I doing?? Scrapping! I LOVE being on the Creative Kuts Creative Team and I LOVE working with their files, but sometimes, a girl has to cut loose and just let the creative juices flow! So, today, I am working on some things that are completely my own.  Now, I know they are not as nice as any patterns you can buy, but they are mine, and that makes me happy!  This isn't anything that I will be selling, but just playing around with and having some fun, seeing what I am capable of, and also so as not to lose all or any of my artistic capabilities! LOL
First up:

A couple of bees!  I am making a too cute page with lots of flowers.  I got the idea off my youngest daughter's PJ's.  Finished LO will be posted in a bit! Stay tuned! I plan on cropping til I drop today!

 OK, so I have finished my Bee LO..... What do you all think??

 OK, now onto something else... hmmmmmmm.... Gears are grinding! Can you smell the smoke?? LOL

Next up, I decided to work on a fishing page.  Plain and simple.  I hand pieced the boat and each piece of the letters.  They all started as pencil drawings and then I hand cut each individual piece and added the detailing with a pen.  I am going to work on a second page later, but first, have to go coach a baseball game!

Here is the second page, which I actually made into the first, I am scrapping backwards!  I made the fishing pole too:

This will probably be my last project for the night.... This is an 8 1/2 x 11 page set that I made for someone.  They wanted a Spider man birthday theme.  I made both of them by hand, no patterns used!
Hope you all enjoyed hopping and cropping with us! See you tomorrow for Mother's Day!
