Monday

Can you tell which letter I ran out of ? *winks*




So I'm slowly working on the photos I've taken with my phone....love that printing them card-size makes them perfect for a 8.5 x 11 layout. :)


I love this My Mind's Eye patterned paper....just included some paper blooms and embellishments to extend on the patterns on the paper as well as add some texture and dimension. A good way to add the bits and pieces you have laying on your craft table.


Can you tell that I ran out of the letter "S" ? I was too lazy to paint the lone chipboard which would make it blend seamlessly with the rest of the chipboard letters...so I coloured it with a pink Copic marker, then added stickles [glitter makes everything better!]. Had to strategically add pink elements around to complete the "illusion" of a planned design...*winks*

Playing along with the recipe challenge at Punky Scraps.

Supplies: My Mind's Eye and Echo Park patterned papers, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, Maya Mists, Prima blooms, Ranger stickles, MT washi tape, buttons, white pen, ribbon, embellishments.


P/s: I'm really behind in my google reader....[1000+ Yikes!] I'm playing catchup this week! Don't forget to play along with my guest Sonia's recycling challenge...it ends on Friday! Can't wait to introduce my next guest blogger! You'll meet her tomorrow! :)

Love it! The use of the glittered "s" is perfect for a day of shopping! I adore the woodgrain paper you used! It's a fab design!

Sherry Eckblad said...

Love it and would of never guessed that was why you had one letter a different color.

I love the woodgrain backing paper and I run out of letters constantly...so I too do what you have done.Nevertheless it blended beautifully with the rest of the LO.
Your title is eyecatching and attention grabber.
P.S.- To make something for Sonia's challenge has been on my mind...but i am so busy with the scrapbook I am making.I hope to play along before time runs out

Love it! I have to remember that next time I'm scrambling for that letter I *need* - usually I'm out of "a." And yep, sparkle makes everything better. Always.

Ooh, LOVE this layout, Yvonne! What a fun and artsy blend you've got going on here. Love how you built on the pattern already printed on the paper. Looks like you did the whole thing. And love your touch of pink title work. I think the extra color is a fabulous touch! Planned or not, it's just genius!
