SHE GOT A BALL!

YEP!  My little niece, Marrah, was singled out to get the Phillies ball!  She is 4 1/2 and already an avid Phillies fan, like her parents!  Well, you can see her excitement!  I created this page for (Click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  You still have 2 weeks to join the monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in their terrific products!  Hope to see you there!

MY LAYOUT:
I used the following Creative Embellishments Products, leaving them all natural.
Family Frame, THE LOVE OF BASEBALL, Corner Flourish
I also used the Distressed text stamp subtly in the background.

SOME CLOSE-UPS:
Thank you for stopping by!

Legoland and Creative Embellishments!

Hello! My grandsons and I had so much fun this past summer when we went to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in PA.  I bought the photo they took which is on this page-otherwise I wouldn't be in any of the fun photos!  This page is for (click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  It is  real thrill to be their design team because I already loved their products and believe in supporting small business! I don't know how they keep the prices so reasonable!

If you have some time, you have the rest of this month to join in the monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in Creative Embellishments products!  Hope to see you there!


Creative Embellishments Products Used:

Fishnet Panel:  I cut it to make a long strip, coated it with white gesso and
colored it with Sharpies in the colors of LEGOs.
JOY : LOVE the large words at CE!  I did the same as the fishnet panel as described above & finished it with a coat of glossy accents.
memories:  I colored the word with a green sharpie and a coat of glossy accents.

SOME CLOSEUPS:
