oh la la!! Another kit to share!

WOOHOO!! It's reveal day at My Creative Scrapbook. I have an awesome MCS main kit to share with you. I just love the mix of soft blues & pinks in this kit featuring Teresa Collins chipboard, transparencies and pattern paper. Here's a peek at the kit contents and also the design team gallery.

His Girl: Larissa was cuddling with Daddy while we waiting for my brother's wedding reception. It was so sweet...she leaned into him and whispered "I'm your girl Daddy...I'm your favourite" Indeed she is :)
To create this pink accent inside the die cut and ribbon, I simply ripped up little tiny strips of pink Bazzill cardstock and glued them in and slightly under the ribbon. I wrinkled them to create this effect. I wanted the texture to contrast the softness and lacy look of the ribbon and the die cut.

Good times: This is DH and Larissa as they headed down the dock for Larissa's first fishing trip on labour day. There will be many more layouts based on photos from this day!

Girlfriends: This layout about my dear Texan friend whom I miss dearly even though I am dreadfully inept at emailing!

Journaling reads: Since Margie & I live so far apart, when we finally get together we need to squeeze all the giggles, laughter and silliness possible into the short amount of time we have together. We snapped this awful self portrait (well she looks great but me...oh my!) during Margie's August '09 visit to the Island

I used the Tim Holtz crown and swirls masks that came in this kit. First I used Tattered Angels glimmer mist over them and then I moved them slightly and used an inked sponge for a stronger effect. I also used my circle punches to make cardstock circle masks over the layout.

As my altered project I made yet another decorative jar. I know it's not the most creative project to make but I really enjoy them and giving them to friends and family.

Okay, seeing that picture of us just makes me giggle! The layout is lovely though--they all are! You do such wonderful work. :-)
