It's been a super busy week for me: my daughter turned five, my son has the flu, we got in a car wreck, doctor's appointments, design team work, our second car is in the shop.. Eeek! Then this weekend I am teaching at class, and Sunday we have about 30-35 people coming over for a birthday party. As you can imagine I haven't had much time to do the scrapbooking I have been hoping to finish.
I did manage to squeeze in making a mini-album. These Pink Paislee papers were calling out to me. I knew they'd go perfectly with some embellishments that I never had the right paper for.
I just love the murky browns and blues. They have a beautiful aged appearance.
I used a lot of traditionally boy colors, but dressed everything up with flowers and bling so I think this album could be for pictures with a son or a daughter.
I think these jeweled stems and leaves really soften things up.
I mixed in my two favorite colors yellow and green. :)
I thought the Jenni Bowlin "Read This" sticker was perfect for the canvas envelope.
I am hoping something gives in my schedule so I can put together a submission for Paper Cowgirls this week. I thought I had two more weeks to get to it, but the deadline is this Saturday. Stinkers.
Happy Scrapping! DeeDee
