Recent Projects

Hi all,
It has been over a month since my last post. We have been busy, busy this month with graduations, birthdays, fairs, etc... I have overcome a recent mojo block and have created a few projects I would like to share with all of you....Here we go......
This layout highlights our family day at the Vermont Dairy Festival. This was the first year that my youngest daughter was tall enough to ride on the Tornado. She wanted me to ride along with them so I did...The base of this project is orange cardstock from DCWV. I am not sure which stack it came from because it was a loose piece. The striped piece of patterned paper came from the DCWV Indian Summer Stack. The orange patterned paper came from my scrap bin and I am unsure of who made it. The colorful polka dot paper is from My Mind's Eye Bright Dots stack. The banner stickers and the tickets are made by 3Birds. I used baker's twine from the Twinery. The larger pic of the ride is a standard 4x6 and the 3 accent phots are 3 3/4 squares. I really liked how this layout turned out. I am not a big fan of the color orange, but I thought that color helped the pics stand out really well.
                  Project # 2

This layout showcases my beautiful daughter as she gets her hair and makeup done prior to her 8th grade graduation in June. I will be working on another lo of her all dressed up soon and will post when done.
 This lo starts on cardstock from the DCWV Christmas Cardstock stack from a few years ago. The yellow patterned paper is from the K&Company Primary Designer paper stack. The orange cardstock is also DCWV that I punched with the Fiskars Apron Strings punch. The pink polka dot paper is from the My Minds Eye Bright Dots stack (love this stack). I cut the word Gorgeous using the Birthday Bash cartridge and I welded the letters and shadow letters together using my Gypsy. The chipboard pieces are from colorbok and I threaded them using baker's twine from the Twinery. The journaling card is also from colorbok, but the original from the Sticky Journal Stak was too small for me to use so I copied and enlarged it using my HP all in one photo printer. Rhinestones are from Darice. The shiny green border strips are from 3Birds Paper Trails collection. I love these photos of my daughter.
    That's all I have to share for now. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think...
Have a Great Day!!!!!
