National Scrapbook Day

This week Paper Wings is celebrating National Scrapbook Day all week!! How great is that! Some wonderful members have put together a week of fun for all of us! Everyday we are getting different scrapbooking inspirations and each day we can join in the fun! I set time aside to enjoy the event and above are two of my layouts. Sorry that the picture are not the best...I scanned them because I really did not have time to set up the camera and background. Once I get a chance I will take pictures and update the post! I hope you enjoy the pages!

Playing in the studio.....

Taking time to play and try new techniques has to be my favorite time! Since getting things together after the flood I have not had the chance to enjoy that special time until last week! Last week I was playing with the oil slick technique and tweaking it a bit and this is what I came up with... I hope you enjoy it!

I used acetate instead of glossy paper to do the oil slick technique and I put some of the stamped images below and some above the acetate. I used two cute sets that will be discontinue this season they are; Something's Fishy and Treaser Seekers.

A little note to send some cheer....

This card was a little card I put together to send a cheerful greeting to my cousin Cindy. I wanted to add a little smile to her face, so I colored the little girl to look like Cindy's granddaughter/ I used one of my favorite papers....Miss Moxie and TAC's Dear Friend stamp set.
