"Joy" - Prima PPP

I am so excited about playing in the 2013 January Prima Product Pick Challenge. I have been watching this challenge for the past year and I could never get this done. So my 2013 scrappy year is starting out on the right foot.

                  2013 Jan PPP

For this challenge, I created a 4x4 canvas using prima's products, tissue paper and glimmermist. My background was created by using tissue paper and gel medium. Then I sprayed the background with Patina and Electric Blue glimmermist. I added some prima resin and flowers to accent the background. Voila!

Layers, Round Robin & Swirlydoos....

Good evening,

So for the month of January, I signed up to play the Round Robin Challenge at Swirlydoos again. This time I had to follow and scraplift Linda's beautiful layout which had about 6 or more layers. I realized while scraplifting her layout that I typically do not use that many layers. It was definitely a challenge for me that I was determined to accomplish. So I choose my May 2012 Swirlydoos Kit and a family photo from our first road trip with the babies. This is picture of us outside the entrance to the MLK monument in Washington DC.

For my layout I used Donna Salazar, 7 gypsies and Bazzill cardstock. I also had to use my favorite go- to product which is glimmermist (electric blue and cranberry zing). I added flowers, resin chair and gray ink from Prima. Then added a few petaloo flowers to accent the white flowers and chair.

I also used white heuy mist on my fountain with ice silk paint. Unfortunately, the picture does not capture the sparkles and glimmer on the fountain.


Have a good night!

Cardabilities Sketch #66

I am so excited about playing in different challenges that I never had chance to participate in last year.
This is my first time playing the Cardabilities Sketches. Since I was leading a team in the Card Round Robin for Swirlydoos, I decided this was a good time to play at Cardabilities.

Cardabilities sketch #66 gave me some inspiration to use with my July Swirlydoos Kit. For this card, I used the Kaisercraft Lakehouse Collection papers.

Supplies: Pattern Papers: Kaisercraft Lakehouse; Flowers: Petaloo and Misc; Leaves: Petaloo; Clock: Prima; Mist: Viva Pink Tattered Angels; Misc Supplies: metal heart & doile

This challenge ends tonight at midnight but you should try to participate in their other upcoming challenges.

Have a great day!

Happy New Year and a layout!


I am very excited and hopeful for what 2013 will bring this year. I have a few scrappy and personal goals to achieve this year. I have contemplated on creating a top 10 list for 2012 but I change my mind. I rather just start fresh this year with my new focus on blogging. I did realize alot of my layouts from my Scrappy Chic dt assignment and personal scrapping was not posted on my blog or in my galleries. I will try to update a gallery in some way. I am still investigating which way is easier for me. So for the month of January, I am truly exploring the freedom of participating in challenges at multiple sites.

So this layout has served two purposes... The Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge at Flying Unicorn and the Heidi Kelley December Challenge for Swirlydoos. So my sketch is based off a beautiful sketch designed by Tammy at Flying Unicorn. I used the Kaisercraft Periwrinkle, Creative Imaginations, & Vintage Finds collections with some modeling paste, silk paint, Heidi Swapp georgia peach mist, and fairy dust glitter on all the flowers.

Thank you for taking out the time to review my blog post. Have a good night!
