Pretty Denim by Nathy Geuens

Isn't this a cute denim kit? Love the pocket and flowers. Thanks Nathy for sharing your talent with us. Follow the link to download your copy, and don't forget to say thank you!


Boy, they weren't kidding when they said that this was a roadblock! This was a "messy" challenge. And for those of you who know me, I don't do messy, funky or cluttered. Anyway, the challenge consisted of using 2 pattern pprs., 1 plain ppr., fancy title AND 15 elements. I know that you are thinking this does NOT sound hard, right? The kicker is that you are only allowed to use 2 things (be it element or pprs.) by designer.

These are the credits for my layout:

Traci Reed's birthday is today!

Happy birthday, Traci! I hope you have a wonderful day and that all your wishes come true.
The Studio Crew celebrated Traci's birthday by giving her her own blog play day. Most of the crew made layouts featuring her layouts. The one thing you can say about Traci's kits is that they are bright and oh so fun! Aren't the colors of my layout just wonderful? I was lucky to get this great photo of Liam...the colors are so vibrant and the splashing motion creates such movement. If you want to see it bigger and links, click on the gallery links on the upper right corner of the blog.
Thanks for looking and have a great day. 1578

Butterfly Wings Pk. 2 at Cottage Arts

Isn't this layout pretty? I just love, love, love its colors, stitched frame and brushes. It is called Butterfly Wings Pk. 2 found at
I also fell in love with an alpha pack: Elgant Alphas Pk. 1, which has 4 alphas! I used theBronze Bubbles Alpha for this layout, but can't wait to use the others. They have a classic, vintage look to them that appeals to me.

Scraplift Challenge at SBG: BombPop Lover

So, what do you think? Is it too cluttered? I love those naked stamps by Meredith. I was able to use a bg. ppr. from the kit (Little Summer Breeze by Sausan Designs and Amy Martin at the LilyPad) to cover the stamp. Aren't these colors just gorgeous? I am in LOVE with this kit. I have used it 2 times already! LOL

Anyway, these stamps are great because they allow you to include lots of photos to help tell a story. In this case, you can see the progression from when Kaylie started eating her bombpop, as it gradually got smaller, ending with a happy girl all the way on the upper right hand corner.
Did I tell you I love this color scheme?

After 2 years, I think I am finally getting the hang of putting together pleasing pages. I can't believe it has taken me that long to come into my own style, whatever that is. Anyway, I got to go wake up the kids for summer camp. See you later. Ciao!
