The Simple Life ~The Color Room #70~

I've been wanting to do an entry for TCR for a awhile now, but I can never seem to find the time.  So, yesterday I finally found the time and I had a blast.  I must admit that sticking to the color palette was very challenging for me, but I was able to use up some items that have been in my stash for awhile.  I think I'll be doing more of TCR palettes.

 
I had such a great time making this page.  In the picture is my husband and daughter...we were hiking at McConnell's Mill in Pittsburgh about 2 years ago.

 
I used lots of Prima flowers for the flower cluster...it was so nice using up some of my old stash.


Thank you so much for taking a peak!! Here's a link to The Color Room if you want to give the palette a try!!

More to reveal from My Creative Scrapbook

I was super excited to be asked to do the mini album this month.  Did you know that My Creative Scrapbook offers a mini album kit every month?  Let me tell you that this months kits was AWESOME...it was packed to the brim with Simple Stories Destination Collection, Basic Grey brads, Prima flowers, and so much more.  There is more than enough in the kit to complete the album and load it with super cute embellishments.

Since the papers were about travel, I wanted to make an album about all the different places we have traveled to over the years. 


Thank you so much for stopping by.  Head on over to My Creative Scrapbook and check the Design Teams gorgeous work.

It's reveal day at My Creative Scrapbook

Hi ladies!!! I'm back for the My Creative Scrapbook Reveal.  I had the pleasure of working with the Creative kit this month, and it was SUPER CUTE...very bright and Summery!! There are going to be lots of fun things happening over at My Creative Scrapbook in the next couple months...you'll have to be sure to come by and check it out.


I just love this page.  I did a little bit of fussy cutting and used the dot ribbon that came in the kit to decorate the stems of the flower chipboard pieces. I also tried some more hand stitching.




This page is one of my new favorites.  It's not very often that I get a decent picture of my boys.  I really loved the color combo of the 3 Bugs in a Rug "Lazy Summer" and "Chloe" Collections.  Isn't that clothesline adorable?




Here's another page of my daughter Alexis.  This kit really fits her personality.  I made the large flower diecut from a pattern that I had lying around.  I used some scalloped scissors to cut the borders. 




Lastly another page about Alexis.  We were fishing in Illinois.  She's so cute with her pink bows and pink and purple fishing pole.  I did a lot if fussy cutting on the this page.  



Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek.  Stop by My Creative Scrapbook and check out all the Design Teams wonderful creations.
