Playtime at Sea World Layout

I have done some pages lately but haven’t had a chance to take any pictures so here’s another layout from last year:

Products used: DCWV paper, CTMH flowers, Tattered Angels glitter mist, CTMH Giggle alphabet stamps, Darice rhinestone stickers, and CTMH Cherish book.

The girls had a blast at this fun contraption within the park at Sea World in California.  They just bounced back and forth!  The flowers were white and I sprayed them with pink glitter mist to add color and sparkle.

ScrapSketch & Tinkerbell Layout

ScrapSketch is back up and running! I am so excited! These are the first 2 sketches for January and my layouts:

Products used: CTMH Stardust paper, CTMH Stardust Stickease, Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge, Accents Essentials Cricut cartridge, Queen & Co. felt fusion, and Kaisercraft rhinestones.

2010 Layout Challenge: #14 of 210

Products used: DCWV Luxury Stack, Disney Jolee’s boutique by EK Success, Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge, Sandylion vellum Disney stickers, Kaisercraft Pearl Strips (pink), and unknown 3D butterflies/flowers and organdy ribbon.

I am very pleased with this layout.  I used the Diecuts with a View paper from a stack that I bought online and I didn’t like it as well when I got it so it became buried in my stash.  It was the perfect colors for these layouts and I don’t think I noticed before that it had a sheen shine that is very pretty.  The pearls I used come in strips and I used them to create my own flourishes and used the remaining pearls as centers for the flowers.  I’ll have a layout tomorrow using ScrapSketch #3.

Challenges:
Flutter by Wednesday – any butterfly, fairy, or angel

Corrosive Challenge – favorite things

Glitter and bling are among my favorite things!  Well, among them and high on the list – really how do I pick just two!!  I have seen many cards done where the papers are all matted but this is the first time I have done it and I have to say I like mine just as much as I like everyone else’s!  I think I will be doing more of this.  I’m not too worried about running out of paper.  ;-)  As I was making this I started wondering – does coloring get hard as you get older??  I don’t have many stamps to color in but I really like the look of them.  Apparantly, I don’t know how to color!  I guess that’s something for me to work on this year.  I just never thought of it as a hard thing to do and now I’m starting to think that it is.  I just love this fairy that was sent to me.  I might have to start buying more stamps to color because I don’t have any detailed ones.  I tend to stick to the simple stamps or two-step stamping because it’s faster.  It is faster but I really am liking the colored look.  This could be a good idea for my Christmas money.  Well, enough rambling.  It’s taken me long enough to make this card without prolonging it any further.  I hope you enjoy it!  Oh – just one more thing – the stamped image was sent to me and I wanted it cut smaller but I could not get it cut straight for anything – therefore I distressed the edges!  It’s a great technique to fool the eye!
