Bug Bear #3 Something to Buzz About!


I'm enjoying myself with these little bug bears. I have at least 2 more that I want to complete and then the bug series may be over. This little gal is my Bee bear. She is sooooooo Cute! I love how she turned out. She'll be beautiful on a summer scrap book page or maybe a halloween page of your little bumble bee. Wherever she may end up, she will be the center of attention!

Bug Bears!


It's so funny as to what kind of creations I can come up with next. I went to a scrap mania with my friend Emily a week ago and she was talking about lady bugs and bought some paper to complete a layout of her little lady bug at Halloween time. It never dawned on me at that time to try my hand at a lady bug bear! So...I was in at Michael's the other day, buying a few things and I came across these really cute lady bug stickers and I thought...'WOW, wouldn't that look cute on a lady bug tear bear!'. Yesterday I sat down and made this little cutie! I think she turned out darling. I might even try my hand at a Bug Bear Collection. Stay tuned...you never know what is next!

MLDT Goes GREEN!


Hello everyone! I decided I needed to update my blog with my design teams news. MLDT is having a GREEN challenge this week. We've been making things out of toilet paper rolls, recycled papers, leftover items from other scrap booking projects, etc.,

I wanted to share my 1 page 12 x 12 layout with you. I'm not a layout maker by any means but I think this turned out well. I used the GREEN Stack from DCWV for my green project because it is made from 70% recycled paper. I'm in love with all of the DCWV paper stacks, they are awesome.

Come on over to Ebay and search MLDT for all of our great auctions. WE have some super talent over there! Thanks for checking in this week!!

"SWEET" Bears



I had to share my latest creations! I've been working with the "Sweet" pack from DCWV. That paper pack is AWESOME! I'm in a swap with group that I'm in and I had to make tear bears using this paper pack...I made peek a boos...sorry ladies if you see these bears, they are for ebay. The peek a boos are really cute though.




Granted I didn't use much of the SWEET pack but the tops of the bears dress are made from it. I love how they turned out. The bears have been layered twice with mulberry paper so they are extra sturdy. Multiple layers of silk flowers have also been used. I'm starting them off at a mere $5.99 with FREE SHIPPING! So hop on over to ebay later on today and bid on them. My ebay id is kms4life1989 or type in MLDT and find them there. Thanks for looking at my blog today!!

What I think a Fairy Tear Bear looks like!

So this is my rendition of what a "FAIRY" tear bear looks like. I just bought a new sizzlit die and had to try my hand at making wings from it. The sizzlit pack I actually bought is a build a flower pack. While I love to build flowers, I bought it specifically to make some fairy bear wings. I hope she makes a big sale on ebay! I've started her out at a mere .99 cents. Come on over and bid on her.
