Only two more Tuesdays left

Monday, June 15, 2009

Only one more Tuesday left for me on the Scrapping Out Loud Design Team. It's been a lot of fun playing along with the challenges. I've scrapped 24 layouts since becoming a DT member. I've got some amazing pages filling my scrapbooks for my kids to enjoy.
This week's challenge: Color Combo! - Scrap a page, using only brown, blue, and cream or white. Here's my take, a pic I took of my sweet Lily laying on the floor watching morning cartoons. I'm so thankful I get to stay home with her and capture these little moments

Now for my mini album I promised...

Love this pic...she did not want her picture taken but I bought that dress when i was 4 months pregnant with her just after I found out I was having a girl. The only size was 12 month. Do you know how long I waited to get her in

So there you have it. I sprayed the entire book with Glimmer Mist before embellishing with My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow paper and Prima flowers and misc embellies. I also used stamps by Unity and Pink Paislee.

I wasn't really impressed with the vendor faire at the CK Convention. We walked thru everything in less than 30 mins. There were 50 booths if that. A few highlights were the $1 store. You got some great deals there and the Ribbon booth, 50 cents per a yard. Scrap mart was there and they had Thickers 5 for 10.00 which was a great deal too. I also liked Queen and Company's $1 store too. I did get some new plates for my Cuttlebug and saved $2 but I could have used a coupon at Michaels and gotten that discount. I also came home with a new Nestabilities and both the new lines from Basic Grey, Lemonade and June Bug. Here's my loot

Maybe it's because I went to Winter CHA and it was SO huge I couldn't even do it all in one day. I was really looking forward to this big larger than life convention and honestly it really didn't measure up.

Thanks as always for stopping by. Please leave a comment so I can come visit your blog too!Have a great day!

The LL is Fantastic...and I so want to do another mini album! :) You've inspired me ( again )! My babies are "big" now so I think I'll do a mini album of my niece ( she's 20 months now) and give it to my sister. First I have to recuperate from the Wedding album I just finished. As always, Thanks for the inspiration! :O)

Nice work. I went to the ck convention in May. I took 2 classes & they were so rushed. I did buy some cute things for $1.
