HSS Challenge and more

There is another fantastic Guest Designer this month over at HSS. Holly Pittroff has the coolest challenge over there. Here is the link for the challenge. The challenge: use at least 3 stars on a LO and alter or clue it down in two different ways.
I used one huge star as you can see and I used brads to pin it down. I also used several small stars and I embossed them.
This is a picture taken 2006. Here in Iceland we have this run called The Women's Run. I have taken Sunneva to it 4 times. This picture was taken after the run 2006. On it is me, Sunneva, my mom, my mother's sister and her husband. They are like my grandparents. Baldur (the man on the pic) past away month after this pic was taken. This pics along with other pics taken that day were the last pics ever taken of him. They mean alot to me.
Supplies: Bazzill paper it light brown, Crate pper (the brown with circles), Creative Imaginations (the green under the star) and Autumn leaves (the one in the corner), Chipboards Fancy pants, brads Queen&Co, Hambly journaling box, American Crafts letters, KI memories chipboards (flower, photo corner and butterfly) and Tim Holtz embossing powder.

Another project I had over the weekend was the first class in my Sassy scraps techniques class over at NYC scraps Our first class was all about embossing and using things around our house For that technique.

This one was a trial and error process for me. First I picked patterened paper I liked and tired to emboss the mosaic tials in my bathroom. I did not like the out come of that one and I think it's because I used PP. Then I tried cardstock and used buttons to emboss. It was ok but hard since the bottons were thick. Then I went into my DD room and looked around for some time and then I saw it the perfect thing...I took apart her Babrie Van. I pulled the door of the bathroom from the Van and used it for this project ! This was totally fun. I kinda felt like a little kid again. I used Chalk ink to highligt the embossing. The quote is from a Rusty pickle line, ribbon Basic grey and the rub ons are American Crafts.

I have also been working on my HSS design project this weekend. I have an upload next thusday and I have never been so late on my projects but they are coming along and I'll be ready to upload them.

Over and out
