Prom


I had a lot of fun making this layout. I wanted to add a little elegance and a lot of playfulness which describes Mitch and his girlfriend Meredith so much.  I embossed a lovely, light blue and white paper with a gorgeous embossing folder and then rubbed a darker ink all over it to bring out the embossing. It is meant to go with the flowers in the gorgeous dress. I also used the yellow background for that purpose. I added the black borders to go with Mitch's suit!! I am entering this in Simon Says Anything Goes challenge--love those!!!!! I am also entering it in my friend Stacy's tic tac toe challenge: mist, alphas and buttons....

Thanks for visiting!

Canvas with some fun new things I got for my birthday


So, I got some fun new Hazel & Ruby letter stencils (Dear Ruby) from my friend Lural for my birthday!!! So, when I saw the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Time to Grow/Botanical, I decided to try out modeling paste with a flower stencil along with the letters. I originally painted it with a light green chalk paint, and I felt it was hard to see the letters, so I went over the canvas with some gorgeous gelatos from Faber Castell. I also paperpieced/colored a cool Unity girl that I bought recently.  I'm sure I will do a better job next time, but I still kind of like the canvas!

Hope you are having a great Memorial Day weekend! Hug a veteran!! Here's a big virtual one going out to my little brother who spent 20 years in the Navy!!!!

Happy 20th Birthday Mitchell!


I can't believe Mitchell turned 20 this April...  Anyway, I made this for the Simon Says Die Crazy challenge.  And, I even dug out my old Sizzix letters/numbers for this one.  The hearts and love are from American Crafts! And the matting is from a set of Spellbinders.

Thanks for looking!
