More Pictures Please!

Wow... I cannot fathom the fact it's been exactly one week since I have last posted! I have been helping out with VBS for the past two weeks and my daughter has so many softball games there is little time for much else.
I was able to steal a way for a bit to create this layout for the newest Ella's Scrapbook Challenge #13 Adding extra photos with pockets, flippers, accordion mini's and any other fun and creative way.

Here is what I came up with I will be posting three photos to demonstrate the flaps:

Torendi continues to see Pink Elephants!

                        second posting today, scroll down for Pixie Dust Studio releases and challenge...

First off I want to say wow to all the fantastic layouts created for Ella's Pink Scrapbook Black & White photo challenge! This week for Challenge #12 with Ella we have a sketch as well as the theme Park/Vacation/Zoo spot or Fun Day, here is the sketch

As we just recently returned from vacation this was a no brainer and this picture of Oscar is among one of my favorites from the trip.

I used my June Kit From Torendi "Paris in Bloom" to created this layout because the colors were perfect and Sassafras card stock banner stickers really gave me the feel of Mexico I was looking for.  These kits are just the ticket as you receive just the right amount of papers and other great product to keep you inspired until the next month. There are plenty on sale right now or if you sign up for 6 months you get a discount as well!  Gave a great day! Beth

Release Day!!!

It's here! The release day of  "The Fair" from the Pixie Dust Studio!  I just adore these images &  you will too! My final sneak peek incorporates  Rah Rah, I love her sneakers!

Today  at the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge we'd like to see Twilight Inspired cards using the colors Red, Black, White and/or silver. For all of you who played along last week you made some awesome creations and I cant wait to see what you come up with this week! Beth

With cherry picking season upon us I felt it most appropriate to used this pair I cut them from the Sassafras Cherry Delicious  paper.
