Get Messy! My step by step!

So girls...... It's GET MESSY THA- THA- THURSDAY!!!

Bring it on
Ring the alarm
Don't stop now
Just be the champion
Work it hard like it's your profession
Watch out now
'Cause here it comes

Here comes the smasher
Here comes the master
Here comes the big beat
Big beat to blast ya
No time to quit now
Just time to get it now
Pick up what I'm putting down

OH ... SORRY! 

I was just thinking of this awesome song by my girl Britney Spears ... some think she is crazy but I find her to be a real human with real problems just like the rest of us!

So the song... It gets me fired up and THIS GROUP of Crafty Vixens also gets me fired up! Let's go shall we?

My first craft sales came when I designed wine glasses with black high heels and cut the persons name in vinyl. So I dug out this vinyl and new it was bad ass and needed to be in my journal.  This vinyl is almost three years old I knew i kept it for a reason. 

So this is my page and I want to show you what I did to get here.

Turned on my Cricut and found a font I liked and spelled out these words. A cricut is a die cutting machine. It's BOMB. I have carpel tunnel in both my hands and I would not be able to create if I did not have this machine to cut things out for me. 

I knew I wanted to use these items. I actually forced myself to use a wood veneer. Wood veneer and I just don't see eye to eye. I think it's just fear lol or um I can't comprehend wood on pretty paper?

Trimmed my paper with this awesome tool by Fiskars.

I then lined my papers to sit on top of each other.  From there its like a puzzle everything has its place. If you don't like something-you just move it. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

So this page....... These are lyrics to my all time favorite song by Tove Lo mixed with a lil Bando!

Before you judge... I don't get high. I don't smoke marijuana. I just like the song ok? I think it's catchy. Do I agree with the stuff that's in her videos - no. She is an artist. Artists express themselves. I am attaching the video in case you would like to hear the song... don't forget close your eyes! Stay High- the Queen of the clouds

Please before you go ck out my messy sisters!
