Reminds me of MY dolls! @ Creative Embellishments!

Hello! Only a couple more days remaining in 2017! 2018 here we come! A happy and Healthy one to all of you!  Here is a page of my brother, Mark and his daughter, Marrah.  Seeing her innocent face clutching her doll reminded me of how much I enjoyed dolls when I was young-I still have my 1st Barbie-she is 57 years old!!!  Anyway!- You only have a few more days to join in this month's challenge @ click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous products!  Maybe you can squeeze it in!

Here is the page I created:
Creative Embellishments Products Used:  Triangles:  I loved using them on this page since the paper itself was triangles -I colored them with Sharpies and attached different patterned papers inside them and place them sporadically on the page.  flower FLOURISH:  I cut them apart and placed them around, placing "bling in some flower centers as well as coloring them with green and yellow ink.

Hello!  I know it's December!  But-this was August and the Philadelphia Zoo had snow!  I was so curious, I took my grandsons and WOW-was it fun for them-and ME -to see their joy!  This page was created for the new monthly challenge at (click & go->)  CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS/Be inspired by the following photo and the "twist" is to use a border.  You have ALL MONTH to join in for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous products, hope you can join us!
