My name is Sandi Smith and I live in Newfoundland, Canada with my wonderful husband and 2 great kids, Rick is 22 and Claudine is 15.I started scrapping January 2010 and was immediately hooked! I am obsessed with all things associated with scrapping and I am sure I have read every how to and watched every tutorial that has been made! I am always in "scrapbook mode ", constantly looking at things in our everyday lives for sources of inspiration.
I love to tear, wrinkle,sew and to get messy with gesso, mists, stencils and paint and flowers are an absolute MUST! I also love to refinish antique furniture, make wreaths and my latest love is painting those distressed wooden signs you are seeing all over Pinterest!
I don`t have a definite style...my creations can be vintage, shabby chic or loaded with paints ,sprays and gesso...depends on my mood and what inspires me at that time. I think I am a layout girl but I also love to think outside the box and always enjoy a good challenge to get those creative juices flowing!
Thanks so much Cheryl for letting me be part of your awesome team!

"Back to School" with Coredinations!!
Fall always comes to mind whenever I think about "Back to School" and I just love the beautiful colors of Autumn. So I decided to put those colors to good use on an altered clipboard and added a little inspirational quote to get the kids back into the study mode!
I applied the Vanilla Cream Core'dinations cardstock to the clipboard and sanded the edges with the Core'dinations Sand it Gadget. I then started my flower cluster on the top and also made some rolled roses from the French Roast Cardstock.
Here are a few closeups...
I finished it off with a hemp bow, an old paintbrush, a little gesso and a few splatters of mist!
Thanks for dropping by and be sure to visit again because the other ladies have some awesome projects to share !
