Some Fun Pictures and a Pretty Flower

Happy Mother's Day! I had a wonderful day! Woke up early and did two more pages in Allie's Scrapbook (see them below), an early breakfast with my parents, my sister, and Kenny (I had steak and eggs - yum) plus church, then Allie and I made some pasta with sausage and wine and then made some fruit shortcakes (yes, I splurged - it is Mother's day after all). I ended the day finishing up a pretty flower card.

The two scrapbook pages I made for Allie's book were done with CSI's Case #122 which is a sketch. For evidence I picked the following: crystal, flowers, tags, circles, cursive and for testimony I picked cursive journaling. The colors are mint, seafoam green, and peach/orange (my interpretation of the colors). The pictures on these pages are from a fundraiser Allie's Sorority did this past Fall. Pledges from the various Fraternities dressed up and competed for the title of AOII Queen. Allie did the make-up on several of the guys (the ones in the pictures with her) and had a blast. They raised money for the Arthritis Foundation. Fun!!!


This card was done for the Monochromatic Challenge at Aurora Wings. I used the Hydrangea - Flower Heads and Leaves image from Aurora Wings - I love Mitzi Sato-Wiuff's images. I was lucky enough to win this image in a recent challenge and can't wait to make more cards with it. I drug several copies of the image with Tim Holtz faded blue jeans (pealed paint on the leaves) ink sprayed with glitter mist and then added in some more color with a SU! blender pen dotted on the ink pad. Added a few Zva Crystals, some sugar glitter, and white gel pen.


Hugz - hope your day was wonderful!

  2. What fun the kids must have had. Even the guys got into the act. Hope the foundation got a few dollars for their efforts. Great scrapbook pages. As for the hydrangeas, they bring back memories of my grandmother sreading old tins of rusty tacks under them to make the produce blue flowers. Love your coloring of them and the card.
