Rock n Rolla

Hello, my lovely ladies.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank Shannon from Brombshell Stamps for featuring me in her newsletter this month.  Love ya girl!  If for some reason you don't know what Bombshell Stamps are, I can't imagine that :), check them out here.  They are awesome!!!  You can also find the newsletter  here.  Thank you Shannon and all the lovely Bombshell DT ladies!!!  Yall Rock.  Don't forget to check out the Bombshell Hump Day hop every Wednesday also!!!!

Have you ever had a song in your head that you just couldn't get rid of? I have and it can be so annoying sometimes and then other times you can put that song to use and come up with some pretty amazing things. This time I was  purposefully trying to come up with a song so that I could make a card for the Rock N Rolla group over on Smeared and Smudged.  I heard the song that I ended up using one day on the radio and it was stuck in my head but I was still trying to find another song. I don't know why.  Anyway I was sitting at the craft table in my craft room trying to come up with something for this project, I closed my eyes and boom there was the card.  It just sat there, I saw everything!  Does that happen to any of you?  Anyway, I pulled out my Bombshells and went to work.  Well actually the first thing I did was go to the computer and make the patterned paper that I used for the card with my digital scrapbooking kit.  Man's Ruin is one of my favorite sets so of course I used her!!!  So this is what I came up with! 

Song Used: Sex on Fire
Group: Kings of Leon
Lay where you're laying. Don't make a sound
I know they're watching. They're watching.

All the commotion. The kiddie like play.
Has people talking. Talking.

You.  Your sex is on fire.

The dark of the alley.  The break of the day.
The head while I'm driving. I'm driving.

Soft lip are open.  Them knuckles are pale.
Feels like you're dying.  You're dying.

You.  Your sex is on fire.
Consumed, were the words to transpire.

Hot as a fever, Rattling bones.
I can just taste it.  Taste it

If it's not forever, If it's just tonight.
Oh, it's still the greatest.  The greatest, the greatest.

You, Your sex is on fire.
You, Your sex is on fire.

Consumed, were the words to transpire.

And You, Your sex is on fire
Consumed, Were the words to transpire.

Here is my card that I made to go along with the song. 

Not sure if you can see the words or not in the pictures but on the front of the card is the title of the song and on the inside are the lyrics.  All printed out on vellum!

Ace in the Hole Idea Book

Here is an altered notebook I did for the Design Team on Smeared and Smudged!  This book has two totally different covers.  The "front cover" is light and airy with sass and the "back" is dark and gothic!  I made this book to write down my crreating ideas and wanted the two sides to match whatever catagory I thought the ideas belonged in at the time!  Going from the front would be normal ideas and going from the back would be my not so normal ideas....although I am not sure if I have normal ideas!!!  My daughter seems to think I will always write from the back of the book!  The images on the front are from a ACE energy drink can that I found at Biglots...I am not an energy drink drinker so I made my hubby drink them.  He loved it..I just bought it for the images! LOL  The stamped image on the back is from Third Coast  Rubber Stamps and her wings are made from the same energy drink can!

Come on over to Smeared and Smudged and check us out!  If you enjoy Alternative, Vintage, and Gothic Art Rubber Stamping, then this is the place for you!
