Might As Well Jump! - Scrap Friends Color Challenge

Hello everyone!

There's a new color challenge up at Scrap Friends and it's such a pretty one! Of course there's nothing pretty about my interpretation ;) We love to do these jumps wherever we travel. In this case we were in the middle of nowhere Iceland, heading towards a glacier when we decided to get out the car, go exploring, and as the Van Halen lyric says....jump!

Now let me show you those pretty colors before I go on:

Doesn't it truly look yummy??

Hope you get a chance to play along with this month's colors!

Having Fun With Embossing Powder!

Hi everyone!

I wanted to get this post out a bit sooner but it's been busy, busy here with work, friends visiting from out of town and prepping to leave on holiday this Thursday!

Anyhoo, I've got my first tutorial up for Scrap Friends here and it's on using embossing powder. I'd love for you all to go check it out of course and tell me what you think!

Here's the page I made:

Again, I've got all the "how to's" over at Scrap Friends, hope you find it fun! Cheers!

Friends - ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge #17

Hello everyone!

It's time for a new sketch challenge at ScrapFriends! Angela makes such amazing sketches and this month's is full of energy and fun!

I feel there's a grungy energy to this but what I love about sketches is the endless different ways to interpret them. They can be suggestive, or inspire or guide you. I wanted to scrap these super adorable photos of my youngest daughter and one of our pooches. It was going to be all about girly and sweet with a dash of grunge...here's what I came up with..

I used Prima flowers and UmWowStudio hearts for the girly feel and of course I had to try and match that tutu's color. Faber Castell gelatos came in handy to get just the right colors in the background. 

I hope you play along! Thanks for stopping by!
