May Scrapbook Layout

Hello Everyone,
 So far I have done 4 layouts for this month, I met my goal.  I'm also working on doing more journaling on my pages.  I really love looking at Scrapbooks and knowing something about the story of the pictures. I did this lovely layout of my son, and I used the Tiny Tags die as the main accents from Paper Trey Ink. I also used mostly Echo Parks For The Record collection paper, a few rub-ons I had in my stash, buttons, and some I-Rock metallic bling. I cut my Title with my Cricut using Make The Cut.

Enjoy and CRAFT ON!!

House of Gilli Challenge 7:Black and Any 1 Color

Hello Everyone,
It's time for another Challenge over at House of Gilli and I am the Hostess. I used Black and Teal on this awesome layout. I really am happy about how it turned out. I have spent a lot of time making cards and other gift items but I have tons of layouts that I need to do so I did this. I did a lot of stamping and sewing and a little embossing.I used the Bloomers Gilli found HERE.  Just in case anyone is wondering that little circle label really is a shade of teal not green.(I promise) I hope you enjoy, and please join in on the fun at House of Gilli.

Enjoy and CRAFT ON!!

Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge 52 : Here Come the Girls

Hello Everyone,
Today is the start of a new challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays. I used this lovey Digi that you can find here at Prairie Fairy Designs. I also used this sentiment set, prefect for Here Come The Girls.
I have a love for all things Asian, so I knew I had to color this image. I also had to use red, no brainer, and I paper pieced the parasol and the oboe and her shoes. I really wanted the focus to be on the image and sentiment, so I kept the details to a minimum(that was hard, I also love bling). Look close,I did manage to get some sparkle on the flower. I think she turned out gorgeous. Come join us and check out the other Princesses work.
Hey Angie I didn't use YG at all:)
