What a Week!

I'm back to show the last of my LCOM Layouts using Bella Blvd.'s Tail Waggers and Cat Naps, but first, I had to share what an amazing week I've had! I usually don't enter a lot of layout contests, I kind of go in spurts, if I have something that fits the contest requirements, I'll enter it. This past week, I was surprised to be recognized three times!! First, Echo Park picked one of my layouts to display on their weekly blog post, I Spy Echo Park. Right after that, I got an e-mail from Becky Fleck letting me know that I won the MLS LO Contest on the Page- Maps blog with one of my Tail Wagger Layouts! Finally, yesterday I was roaming blogs and saw that one of my EP Summer Days layouts was chosen as a winner on Echo Park's Facebook Fan Friday Post! I guess when it rains, it pours!

Anyway, back to my final Tail Wagger's LO. This is a picture of my very unstable kitty, Daisy. It's a typical pose for her, she's a bit crazy!

I had a lot of fun with this LO... To add a little "something" to the top corner, I cut a bread tag using MFT's new Die namic.

I stitched a bit crazy... tried to make it look like yarn, not sure if I succeeded, but it added to the crazy feel.

The chipboard pieces from the Tail Waggers' line were fun to work with, and I had to add a couple of Whimsy Buttons!

I finished it off with some twine and rolled flowers made using MFT's Rolled Flower Die namic.

That's it for now, I'll be back next week with a patriotic LO using Bo Bunny's new Liberty Line.

I Scream (You Scream)....

It's been a busy month for layouts!!! I'm back with another layout using Echo Park's Summer Day for the Right at Home Scrapbooking Design Team. I just love this line... the colors are just so bright and cheery... it's easy to work with! This layout shows the girls on the last day of school last year, enjoying their ice cream, as has become our tradition!

I pulled out my MFT Die namic flat bottomed clouds and sun to add a little pizazz to the corner.

In order to make the colors pop a bit I lightly inked the edges in black. I really think it brings out the colors even more! Echo Park had some adorable chipboard flowers to go with this line, I couldn't resist them! For the daisy trim, I misted some Maya Road trim with Shimmerz Spritz to get it to match the colors in my layout.

To finish it all off, I added some twine around a Whimsy ice cream stick pin... I just love those Whimsy's!

That's all for now, I'll be back next week with my last LO using Bella Blvd.'s Tail Waggers and Cat Naps!

Pay Purr View

I'm back with another Tail Waggers and Cat Naps Layout I did for the Marketing Team over at LCOM.

My two kitties love an open window or door... it gives them a glimpse of all the critters outside! They'll spend hours looking out, talking and twitching!

The clouds and sun are chipboard minis from Maya Road that I painted. I misted the edge of the clouds with Shimmerz Spritz. The little bird is a pin from My Little Bit of Whimsy.

I made the yellow flower using Maya road Pleated Ribbon Trim and a Gluber. The gingham flowers are Maya, and the cute little bumble bee is a Whimsy.

I added some twirly hand stitching and a banner made using MFT's Fishtail Banner Die namic. It was a fun layout to play with!

I'll be back Friday with some more Echo Park Summer Day.

Summer Days are Here

Here's the latest layout I did for Right at Home using Echo Park's ado.rable Summer Days line. the colors of this line are awesome!!! Very bright and pretty! My layout is based on Frances Sylvia's sketch for RAH.

To make the colors pop a bit more, I stitched in black and doodled on the fun chipboard and sticker embellishments that come with the Summer Days line.

And the rub-on title was the perfect addition!! That's all for now, I'll be back in a few days with some more from Bella Blvd.'s Tail Waggers and Cat Naps!

Tail Waggers at LCOM

I'm back with some more Tail Waggers and Cat Naps from Bella Blvd. I'm so happy to get to work with this line for my June LCOM posts! I can finally catch up on scrapping all my kitty pics!
I love these pictures... they are of my Rosie hunting an ant that crawled into the waste basket. She was hysterical... wouldn't stop until she got that ant! I had fun with the chipboard pieces and stickers that come with the Tail Waggers line, and the Cute Cuts sheet had great pictures to cut and add like the paw print.

To finish it all off, I added a cute yellow button from My Little Bit of Whimsy and stitched around the edge and added some ants made from brads.

That's it for today, I'll be back soon with some Echo Park Summer Days and more Tail Waggers from Bella Blvd.!

MFT Fan Club

Hi Everyone!
We had our first MFT Fan Club at Right at Home Scrapbooking last night. It was a lot of fun and a lot of laughs! I created this layout for the ladies to do in class. It uses My Mind's Eye Good Day Sunshine papers and lots of Die namics from MFT. We featured the rolled daisy, but it also uses the Dainty Doily, Dainty Border,Butterflies and Layered Label.

That's it for now, just a quick post. I'll be back next week with some Bella Blvd. Tail Waggers and Cat Naps!
