Butterflies and Flowers

Spring is here...for some of us...and I am loving all the birds and tulip tips I'm seeing!
This card combines bright pink washi tape and lime paper.
 I love how it gives the tape a coral tone.

Last summer's family photos look great with Authentiques Easter collection for this year. So GLAD I'm a procrastinator! Haha. Or not. 
But I am thrilled that these colors are so perfect for my photos.

 The inspiration for this layout comes from this weeks challenge at Red Carpet Studio:
Create a Unique Background
Here is my background mid-design.
I used white embossing powder for the flourishes at the top right.
I inked a star mask with grey ink, then used the same mask to add glitter paste stars.
Of course once I matted and set my photos I added more to the page.

Whisker Lullaby

Drill #53

The Mood Board for this month is all about flowers and contrasting colors.
I particularly like the lime and cobalt tones.

~ Whisker Lullaby ~
We fostered a kitten, rescued from a storm drain and crying piteously in a box at the vet office. He was always a tough little guy and good at finding the warmest spot in the house. Some mornings I would find him under the covers, in my toddler's bed.

Enchanted Wings

Red Carpet Studio #96
Magical Fairy Tale Theme
I must admit that fairies, mermaids, and unicorns are something I never will grow out of! I am THRILLED to see this as a theme over at RCS. My girls told me I'm much too old to make such a card. I just smiled and painted my stamped wings with a touch of Dylusions and a paint brush!

Love You To Pieces

This photo of my boy was taken on a lazy summer day. We had stopped at a favorite park and everyone was relaxed and happy. This is how summer should feel!
~ Love You To Pieces ~
To add a splash of color to this green frame I used my Funfare lego stencil to make yellow and black blocks. Altogether it's a simple piece that will make me smile each time I see it hanging on my wall.

 Bo Bunny Glitter Paste is perfect for that touch of glitz or for turning stars from shapes into dreamy night lights. A gem here and there brings out the shine.
 To enhance the dream like quality of this layout I used Kreaxions Punches to make circular frames. A scattering of the left over pieces adds to the star theme.
This layout is my entry for
