Love You Aneya

I started with one layout in mind and ended up with something completely different.  I do love the way it turned out, though.  First, I stamped the floral images in Versamark and heat embossed them with Whisper White Embossing Powder.  I then used Shimmerz Paints, Creameez Berry Hot and Green Acres, to add these pretty colors.   Using the cut file Love All Around from The Cut Shoppe I cut it out using International Bazaar DSP.  I wanted to add a little more to the right of the photo, too.   I found the cute little bird in the Silhouette Store and was absolutely thrilled to find the perfect color of card stock in my stash!  I added a Not Quite Navy Candy Dot, the same color as the DSP, for her eye.  A bow made with twine and some glittery hearts from Katie Katz Supplies along with the date finished it up.

Handmade Embellishments

Lastly, this challenge was to make handmade embellishments.  I really like the look of negative spaces in my designs.

Love You Mom

The next challenge I chose was a Project Life page using scraps.  Since it was also Mother's Day weekend I did a page for Mom.  It is so pretty!

Team Player

The 2nd challenge I chose was a sketch.  I have been working on an album for Quinn of his year with the Lone Star Brahmas which is going to be mostly black, purple, gray, white and vanilla.

International Scrapbooking Day

A couple of weeks ago was International Scrapbooking Day.  I joined a forum on FB that posted challenges every 2-1/2 hours over the weekend for us to scrap.  We had till Tuesday at midnight to post our photos.  There were prizes, fun games and lots of pages to see!  I was able to complete 4 challenges.  

The first one I chose was to use as much yellow on a page as you could.  I love yellow so this was fun.
