Color Challenge

This was the color challenge on Mommy Scraps blog. You had to use Bubblegum, Kiwi, Sunny Yellow, and Watermelon. CTMH colors of course. I used one of my newest CTMH stamps and colored it with markers. I used my QK daisy embossing die to give some texture. Used my glue pen on the big "S" and parts of the flower and butterfly, then added some glitter. As you can probably see, I didn't dust the glitter off real good. I did this in my sauna of a Scrapbook Room, while Mike watched the All-Stars game that lasted FOR-EV-ER.

This one is a Thank You card I wanted to make for some of my family members I just met at a family reunion. They let everyone hang out at their gorgeous house that is part hanger and live right by the small runway in their little town. Seeley Lake is soo pretty!!! Anyway they live close to the Blackfoot River and we went rafting. This is kind of what it looked like. I about fell into the thing they called "suck hole" Thought it would be the perfect card! Hopefully they like it.

Quick pages

I just used bazzill CS for this LO. I cut some QK oven mit shapes out. I used the Martha Stewart sticky alphabet to spell EASY BAKE. I added some pink glitter to make it sparkle. I also wrote JUST ADD WATER with a glue pen and glittered it. I used a little metal cookie sheet and put a sticky heart on it and glittered it. It went with the heart shaped cookies they were making. I wanted to use all my pics, so to make them all fit good, I did some trimming. I thought that it turned out pretty good. Kind of "old school" but still fun!

For this Easter page, I just opened a paper kit I had lying around. You know, the one you got years ago, and still haven't used??!! To make it fun, I decided to use some Angel Mist. I started with big letter stickers and spelled out EASTER. Then I took my pink paint dauber and inked around it. Wasn't quite the effect that I wanted. So I sprayed the pink mist on it. Little better, but not quite there yet. Then I peeled up the stickers. It left a fun look. Kind of peeled up some of the PP and showed the white core in spots. Let me know what you think.

Another page kit

These I had just whipped together quick. I had all the stuff together except for my title. I made it with the Stencil alphabet from Sizzix. Doing this page made me remember Shane had his first Dilly Bar. Then threw up shortly after. Allergies to dairy!!

Page Kits

I had these LO's ready to go for quite some time. I usually make up some page kits to take to crops. That way if you aren't feeling creative right away, you can still work on some stuff to boost your mojo.

This one says "BIG BOY UNDIES" I used some CTMH stamps to go with the shirt Shane was wearing. He helped pick them out, and even helped decided where the pics should go. He is always wanting to help with pages...especially ones of him! Also the aphabet stickers came with the pp. Some stuff I got on discount one time. Don't you hate when you don't have enough of the right letters? Well that is what happen and I just wrote them in.

Rya made this when she was 4. She loved the Wiggles! I cut the logo and pic of the guys out of a sticker book she had. Added some buttons and WA-LA! Childs artwork into a page!!
