After the March page disaster lastnight I started June. Only took me way too many hours to complete but it is done and looking good. I used Perfection and Friendship paper from the Authentique's Genuine Collection, Echo Park's Yellow and Adventurer paper from the Boy's Life line. I embellished with Not Quite Navy and More Mustard grosgrain ribbon, Kaiser Craft rhinestones and denim self adhesives from Creative Imaginations. Now to start my second attempt at March.
This weekends goal is to get 3 months of my moms 2013 calander done. When I saw this line at DATS ideas started popping into my head and after playing around with the papers for a bit September fell into place. The paper line is Little Yellow Bicycle's Hello Fall which includes Sweater Weather, Delicious Autumn Text and Happy Fall. I embellished with My Minds Eye's Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Lovely pins and buttons and Stamping Up's 1/4 inch Bravo Burgandy Grosgrain Ribbon. I inked the edges with Stamping Up's Close to Cocoa ink and I punched leaves from the Delicious Autumn Text to add a little something to the page. One month down two more to go.
My niece Brooklyn turned 9 today. My inspiration for this card is her love of Teddy Bears and her favorite colors. Along with this card she finally gets the birthday present I've been taunting her with since January!!
When one of our scrapbooking gals has a baby several of us get together to create a scrapbook calandar book. Everyone picks a month and puts their talents to work to make a unique book for momma to paste pictures and write down milestones of wee ones first year. Since fathers day is in June and the Father of the handsome little boy this page is for loves Cars I couldn't resist. I used the Cars cricut cartridge and all solid papers. Yes that checkered "paper" is made by cutting 2inch black squares and pasting them 1 by 1. Totally worth it.
