"Proud to be your Nina" ~ Etsy Inspired Challenge

I created a 2 page layout for the challenge over at EtsyInspired Blog.  The challenge is to browse the Tzaddi Shop and find an item that inspires you; then create a layout, card or any other project. 

This is the item that inspired me, the Peacock Floral:

This is my silly Goddaughter Dulce when she was four!  LOL I love these pictures.  
The swirly background paper and polka dot paper is from Colorbok.  The green paper on the peacock is K & Co.  The paper flowers are from Prima; the crochet flowers were made by my sister, Connie. All rhinestones are Darice; lace is from a kit by Rusty Pickle.  The black tiles, tags, and the brown slide letters are super old and I don't remember the brand.   The peacock is from the French Manor cartridge and the brown swirly SVG frame is from Craft Love.

This challenge is what I needed to get back to scrap booking.  I need to complete Dulce's album!

Sorry about the pic, but it's late and I am tired. :)

Be Joyful & Sing {Gaby Abby Challenge Glitter It Up}

Isn't this the cutest bird!!  Inspired by Paula, LowCountry Paisley.  The bird was a freebie from MyScrapChick and may be purchased for two bucks.  The paper is from my stash, who knows how long I've had it.  The holly and ribbon are Creative Memories stickers, surprised they still sticked!  I remembered to do some embossing on my Cuttlebug, yay!  Can't tell on but I used transparent micro fine glitter on the bird's body and the roof.  The Christmas lights are from Walmart, got them a few weeks ago for $1.99.  I adhered them with Aileens Fast Grab glue.  I'm entering this card over at Gaby Abby SEI Challenge, the challenge is to use glitter on any project...yes, I sure did,  it's on the card, my table, my clothes, I glittered it up!

So here's your free cut file.  I used it on the inside of the card.  I cut at 6.367 x 1.835, please don't cut any smaller.  The font is dainty.  I think it's best to use Cri-Kit pens for the top layer, unless you have super duper patience.  I don't, I had already sent it to my Cricut when I realized it was dainty, blah.  The bird house was a freebie from Cricut Design, but I don't have the blog address to link.  Sorry!

Merrie Merrie

Paper is from my stash, ribbon is by Fancy Pants.  The Merrie Merrie and pink swirls are rub-ons also by Fancy Pants.  The birdie label is by Imaginisce Lucy Bird Collection.

Prima Warehouse Sale

We went to the sale today!  Prices were good, more like Expo prices, I managed to spend $58.  I was surprised there wasn't a big crowd.  I met of couple of men that scrapbook, ha men do scrapbook!!  My hubby was nice enough to accompany me, he held a spot for me in line. :)  Here he is in the Redsox jacket. The man in front was also with his wife and the guy behind my hubby is a scrapbooker.  While waiting in line I met Che'rie, Crafting in the Pines, turns out she lives not too far from me!  Please visit her she was a fabulous blog!

See all the pretties on the table.

By the time I made my way back to buy the mini buckets, they were gone.  The guy going through the bin, helped me get more from the unopened boxes.  LOL

Prima should have given us a discount for replenishing their bins!

And these are my flowers....SOOO PRETTY!!!

My Veruca Salt

Yesterday when I made space for my sewing machine, I took a second look at this pic and realized the plain green background wasn't cutting it.  I decided to re-do the background. Sorry for the reflections on the glass.

This is my Sweet Dulce, when she was 4 years old.  It was taken at her big brother's Willy Wonka 8th birthday party. I love her big brown eyes!! You can't see her dress but she had a Veruca Salt dress my Mom made for her.   The paper is Colorbok's Sweet Blossoms, I got free for completing a survey.  The paper pads are available at Joann's and the fabric online.
