Finally did something with this 5x7 pic of Darth Nic, it was a challenge on Scrapbooks.com - N O P. Use a noun, opposite colours & use a punch. Ugh purple is not my colour, I have about 4 sheets total of purple in my stash. I wanted to use purple letters but I didn't even have any, so I created a mask with QK moxie diecuts & painted over them. I'm happy with the page.
Another challenge - cardboard. I used cardboard for the QK letters (moxie again) and photo corners. Simple & fast page using up old old stash products.
Most of us are feeling better today, I wanted a nice picture of joe since he is 40. This is the lovely picture, thanks boys. Cute pics of nico being creative. He didn't want to get hurt so he strapped a pillow to his bum just like Pingu. He was too cute out there shaking his b00tee. K & Co. Citronella paper line, my latest favourite paperline. Love those quickutz penguins, perfect for this page. I used a Fancy Pants Journal page to use as the title box. Henry and his Citizen of the Month grin, he was so excited to use the gift cert. for a free meal at the Red Elephant. He ate the whole yummy pizza. Misc. scraps of papers & stickers, star diecut is by Creative Imaginations.
Beach Memory Jar filled with St. Augustine sand, pictures of the boys and seaweed too. All 7 gypsies items - rub-ons, tags, stamps.
Henry spotted this climbing up a tree out in the front, we were in side the house during a downpour. The tree is about 20 feet from the window, ol' eagle eye henry was excited to see a snake climb a tree. The snake might have been close to 30ish inches, I wasn't getting enough to measure. So 20 feet away this sucker was spotted on the tree, big enough for me. A page using Cosmo Cricket papers & stickers, I stamped a border using a Prima screening stamp with VersaMark ink. A page with my mom's junior year picture, hard to work with. I have about 15 pictures of my mom so I do not want to "ruin" them by screwing up a page. Loving those cheesy Prima fabric flowers.
Been busy this week, I guess having no email connection has helped me stay on task. Gmail & Yahoo have been weird the last few weeks, no emails or spam. Also the sites are not loading correctly on my computer, no idea what is going on.
A few pages for a friend, used items from my stash - stamps, ink, stickers.
A page for challenges - colours of your country flag - red/white/blue & "use your supplies" - KI Memories lace paper, Creative Imaginations "Red Banner" paper, Thickers letters. I added some red & white cardstock behind some stars for attention.
I'm in a "ugly paper swap" and these are the 2 pattern papers I received. Not bad at all, at least they are not pinks or purples.
