"This Moment" for UmWowStudio

Hi everyone!

September is a busy month in my household because 3 out of the 4 of us share September birthdays. But not this little one, she gets a month all to herself! I snapped this photo back in May, one day before my baby girl turned two. Busy busy little thing she is and I love capturing the random moments.

This is my latest page up at UmWowStudio. I really wanted to put their new masks to use. On this page I used the Star Confetti Mask to create my background.

I colored the mask with Faber Castell Big Brush pens, spritzed the mask with water, and randomly pressed down on paper (like a stamp really). 

Here's flair from the Black and Blue set dressed up with Heart Confetti...

And of course some chipboard! I've used Star Confetti here.

Thanks as always for the visit!!

ScrapFriends Color Challenge #17!

Hello everyone!

ScrapFriends has their Color Challenge #17 up and it certainly is a yummy one!

Aren't those colors gorgeous?

I had fun with this one..........!

And the daughter discovered the meaning of photobomb during our trip to Iceland and she made it her mission to, how shall we say..."practice" the act of photobombing as much as possible for a time. Here she jumped into the pic, enthusiastically blocking her younger sister.

I used the 7Dots paper from the Love Is In the Air I love those papers! I just went and added some gesso stenciling, water colors, and stamping and the background pretty much made itself!

And these Studio Calico mistable cameras came in very handy considering the topic of the paper...

The challenge runs through until October 14th so why don't you come and have a play?

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!!

My Exciting News!

Hi everyone!

I've got some very happy news that I can finally share (actual I'm a bit late sharing here but as the saying goes, better late than never!):

... I've joined the design team over at ScrapFriends!

When I was asked to join, I did a little happy dance :) I've been following their blog for some time and I love their gorgeous sketch and beautiful color scheme challenges! And if you haven't visited their store, you should. It's full of anything you could want to make your pages and projects!

And speaking of sketches, the September Sketch Challenge #17 is up right now! You have until September 30th so go to it!

My take.................

I threw banners across my page, a little splitter, splatter here and there of distress stains, stamps and paints.

OK, every time I see that photo above, I. Crack. Up. That squished up nose? That's little one "blowing" out her candle...except her mouth is closed and she's forcing air out her nose! She had never blown out a birthday candle before and she thought that's what the big girls were doing! Hee hee!, so funny, forever precious.

That was a little long of a post so I'll say goodbye and invite you once again to play along with this month's sketch over that ScrapFriends!
