Lovely ~Petaloo Color Me Crazy Challenge~


I did this page for the Petaloo Color Me Crazy Challenge.  Here's the link if you want to give it a shot. Petaloo CMC  This is a picture if my daughter Alexis that I took the other day.  I can't believe how big she's getting.  I used My Minds Eye Lost & Found Market Street and Madison Ave papers. 


All the flowers are Petaloo Color Me Crazy flowers.  I used several different glimmer mists and inks to decorate the flowers.


Thanks for taking a peek!!

More to reveal from My Creative Scrapbook

I got to work with two kits from My Creative Scrapbook this month.  I posted the creative kit yesterday and today I'm going to show off the Album Kit.  I love love loved the album kit this month.  It featured Pink Paislee's Daily Junque Collection.  This kit is so versitle...it could be used for a mini album, boy/girl pages, or even travel pages. Here's the link to the DT gallery so you can check out all the gorgeous work the DT has created this month.  My Creative Scrapbook


I had to put this page first...it is one of my all time favorites.  It is a very rare occasion that I get a good picture of my oldest son, so I was stoked when I got this shot.


The kit comes with the Pink Paislee Daily Junque Ephemera pack and it has the cutest cards in it.  I cut the card up and used the Bee picture and the word Bee for part of the title.



This is another one of my favorites from the Album Kit...I have lots of favorites, because this kit was awesome...lol.  These are pictures of my daughter and son playing in the tree behind our house.  
The kit came with lots of chipboard pieces.  To decorate the wings...I misted them with Patina glimmer mist and then applied a coat of Distress Crackle Paint (Picket Fence) over the top



I've been wanting to scrap a page about Alaska. This is the most beautiful place I've ever lived and I have the most amazing nature pictures...so when I saw this paper in the kit, I knew it would be perfect.  



I did a lot of fussy cutting on this page.  These are pictures of my youngest son Kyle and Sparky.  Kyle adores Sparky so much. 




This is another one of my favorites...I love the Prima Iron-on that came in the kit.  




I misted the large Pink Paislee flower and made the little lace flower out of the ribbon that came in the kit.


And last but not least this is a page about my middle son Troy.  I did a lot of fussy cutting on this page.
Thanks you so much for stopping by.

It's reveal day at My Creative Scrapbook

Yay!! It's that time of the month again...Reveal Day!! I had the pleasure of working with the Creative Kit this month and it features Echo Park's Splash Collection.  This kit is full of the cutest embellishments and it's great for those summer pictures.  I had a blast working with this kit.  Head on over to My Creative Scrapbook's website and check out all the Design Teams work...it's amazing!!


I tried hand stitching for the first time on this page.  I like how it turned out, but my hand was so sore by the time I was done.  Pushing a needle through 6 layers of paper and a photo was rough...I even used a paper piercer first and it was still really hard...maybe my needle was too big.






I did a tutorial on how I decorated the Smile Chipboard.  It should be posted on My Creative Scrapbook's page by the 10th under July's How To's.  Here's the link  How To's


I fussy cut the swirls from the orange paper that came in the kit and did a little doodling and coloring on them.








 I told you this kit was amazing!!  Thanks for taking a peek!! Become a follower if your not already ;)
