"Baby girl" GD for *Child's play challenges*

Hello everyone!

As I've already told you, I am currently on vacation but (of course) I took some scrapping stuff along with me! So I made this layout for "Child's play challenges" as I was their gust designer for July (thank you Tiffany!).

This image is for inspiration!

My layout was inspired by the round shapes of the photo and of course I used watercolors to make a few circles and splatter some paint around using the tip of my brush! I hope you like it!!

I guess you must know by now that I can't live without Purple Pumpkin embellies...LOL! I've used a few doilies and 2 buttons on this one!

I have also used the sketch from "Stuck? Sketches"

Materials used:
White cardstock: American Crafts
Patterned paper,Letter stickers: Webster's pages
Doilies and buttons: Purple Pumpkin
Flowers, pearls: Prima
Glimmer mist: Tattered Angels
Punch: Martha Stewart

So,That's it for now!
I'll be back soon!!!
Have fun!

I am on Holidays!!!

Hello my dearest friends and followers!

I am currently on summer vacation to this magical place:


This is the reason I haven't visited your blogs lately and my blog is a bit neglected...
I'll be back in August with some great news and lots of work!

I will post again on the 18th as I am guest designing for a challenge blog, so until then....
Happy scrapping!!!

"Today is worth remembering" *Purple Pumpkin*

Hello my friends!!

I had a play this week with palette #117 at "The Color Room"! I fell in love with these colors and I had to play! They are so inspirational! I used the sketch from Creative Scrappers #215.

This is what I came up with...

It was the perfect chance to use all my gorgeous fuscia and orange PP buttons, doilies, tickets & twine!!!!

This masked butterfly is from Imaginarium Designs! I love it! Can you see the PP doted button, the ticket and the yummy fuscia doily??? Just LOVE that stuff!!!

Here is another button and the lovely twine! You can find it in every color at the PP shop!!!

For the background, I have used gesso over a stencil (for texture) Glimmer mist, stamping, Glimmer glaze, rub ons, distress inks and pearls!!!

I really enjoyed the process and had lots of fun making this!!!
I hope you will try it out and play with your mists too!
Have a nice day!!!
