The Mud Boys

I am thrilled to finally get a layout posted. I have made one double layout and one single layout. Of course when I finished my single layout and added all the embellishments I realized I put the wrong year in my journaling, so I will hold off on showing you that one.

Here is the double layout I completed.



I smile when I look at these pictures. I went looking all over for just the right splats, but finally decided to make them myself. The splats were taken from Microsoft Word clipart. I tood the clipart and opened it in a free paint.net program. I change the color on three and on the fourth I erased the letter, changed the color. I used clear embossing powder on the splats to make them shine. I stitched here and there to add some fun to the page. I hope you enjoy it or at least say "ewwww" LOL.

Thanks for dropping by.

Card for Heather

I wanted to make a nice card for my friend Heather and decided to follow Tiet's sketch and so the sugar bowl challenge. Here is the sketch:


And here is my card:



I've used Sugar Nelllie's "Summer Ice Cream" image. Isn't she cute!! I colored my image with with copic markers. I used my copics to color the flowers which were orginially white and also took some paper flowers, used my copics to color them green and added them to the back of the flowers to look like leaves. As an option you needed to use a punch, so I used my scallop punch.

If you are interested in joining the challenge go to the sugar bowl blog. Challenge ends today at midnight GMT.

Heather hope you like this card, I will try to get it in the mail this Monday. Hugs to all.
