Hello everybody. My vacation is going well but winding down. I have one more free day (Monday) and then its back to work on Tuesday. Can I make it???? I have been cranking out layouts this week. I have 2 more recent layouts to share. Thanks for looking.

Don't you just love this sassy pose? She's 8 but acts older @ times. I started first but cutting the strips into banners and adhered them to the page. I splattered the paint with a toothbrush and let it dry. I punched out the "doily" die cut with Martha Stewart Embroidery punch. I pierced the holes with WRMK brad setter and stitched with embroidery floss. I love using part of a stamped image. I used Staz on in Jet Black and partially stamped over the ppr. You will see more paint from me in the near future.

Here is my next creation. I decided to do 12X12, I got the inspiration yet again from Scrapbook Trends 6/2012 book. Check out "The Big Orange Balloon" by Elizabeth Gardner on pg 29. This was pretty easy and was quick to put together. This picture was taken last Sunday after church. Yes they love each other very much but they can still get on each-others nerves a lot. Don't they look so happy? As you can see I used Martha Stewart Cherish punch for the border. I added some stitching for interest. Once I put down all the elements I misted with Tattered Angels in Pink Taffy.
