Happy Saturday

How is everyone doing? This has been a long week for me, with us being sick on Monday and Farrah being sick again yesterday I just knew I was going to get some sleep last night. Wrong, I crafted till about 3 am. I watched portions of Divorce Court and Smokey and The Bandit~ which was a funny movie by the way. So no I didn't get much sleep. But I have these beautiful creations to boast about....

I started using the MME Sweetest Thing line (Lavander), which I've had for a month or so to quickly put this layout together.  I distressed the edges and inked them. I'm loving the ppr strips right now and I love to cut them into banners. I was hesitant about using such a big title because I didn't want to over shadow my picture but I love it. The punch is by EK Success called Dandelion Burst, cute isn't it? Also that Dear Lizzy heart ribbon is pretty.
Hate, Like, Love
Gabby hated the beach in 2010 with a passion. She did not like the sand or the water. She would cry if she was put down. Well in 2011 she became more comfortable and liked it. Now in 2012 she loves the beach, sand and the water. I used BG Soleil in Rhubarb because it had a beachy, water type feel to it. I used my Swiss Cheese punch to make the confetti then painstakingly adhered it to the page. I used the 6x6 Punchinella template and Raspberry paint dabber, its not perfect but those things arent always easy to use! The ribbon is Dear Lizzy (American Craft's). I started using ribbon a little more. I love to make banners and pennants with them.
How U Guys Play
More confetti and some misting. I used Inky Black (Studio Calico). I want a random splatter but realized there's no random splatter with these mists, not like Tattered Angels, where you can get random. My kids playing on the slide. They love to go down the wrong way. I wanted to capture the look on Gabby's face, it is priceless. I had to enlarge it though but I didn't want a huge picture. My background ppr is Amy Tan Sienna Spirit. I used Crafter's Workshop 6x6 template (Mini Life Stripes) and Sunshine Yellow paint dabber. I used a mixture of Basic Grey, Thicker's and Authentique letter stickers. The tag is Amy Tan Bits and the other mist is SWAK by Tattered Angels.
