Perfect Day @ Creative Embellishments

Hello!  This was really a fun and "Perfect Day" for Talan.  I took him to a birthday party @ Sahara Sam's. We (Yes!-I did EVERYTHING!) had so much fun! This is a nice memory already as fall quickly approaches.  I created this page for (click & go) -> CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  You still have 2 weeks  to join in the monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous and reasonable products!  We hope to see you there!

Large Corner Flourish:  I used white and red ink and turned this as a centerpiece for this page.  In the center I used 1 triangle, backed with cardstock and added Talan's name. Word Bubbles:   See the close-up below as to what I did to these word bubbles.  Perfect Day:  Ink with dark Blue Ink.  Photo Flair:  Placed Next to the title.

Best Friends @ CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS!

Hello!  I couldn't resist these photos of my niece, Marrah with her bestie in matching outfits.  They really are sweet together!  Doing this layout gave me another "excuse" to use my faves-HEARTS!  I created the page layout for (click & go) -> CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  November has just begun-so if you have some time, we would love to have you join this month's challenge for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous ( & reasonable!) products.  Hope to see you there!

MY PROJECT: with a touch of whimsy!
Creative Embellishment products Used: Best Friends: these are considered BORDER WORDS-I just LOVE them-I left this chipboard natural on this page.  Mini Heart Panel: I cut it unevenly and placed it around the photos as well as on the dangling heart pieces-I also left these pieces natural. 2018 Flair: I love flairs and try to use them on most pages; I placed this one in the center of the die cut Butterfly. Distressed Text Stamp:  I stamped all across the bottom o this page and then used a blue ink around this area.

Some Close-Ups:

Smores @ Let's Get Sketchy!

Hello! Happy November!  I am here today with the 1st of 2 monthly sketches from (click & go) -> Let's Get Sketchy.  I created a page layout of my grandson, Brian at camp this past summer.  It happened to be Grandparents Day and his bunk had Nature-he was so sweet with all of the animals, with no fear at all! (not me! LOL!) S'MORES was the name of the Guinea Pig!

Take a look at the sketch and hopefully you will have some time to join us!

Artist Trading COINS

Hello!  Well, they are still called "ATCs" but the "C" can also mean COIN these days.  I didn't really want to get into something new! (LOL!)  I have been running a quarterly swap on Splitcoaststampers.com for the past few years making "ATCARDs", so this 3 month swap period, I added a 5th category for the COINS...2 1/2 inch circles...

Here they are!...& Thanks for taking a peek today!
