My Creative Scrapbook & The Color Room

Hello there, and Happy Friday!  So sorry I haven't been around much this computer CRASHED on Tuesday, and I've been way out of the techno world loop.  No access to my photos, my printer, my Cameo...nothing!  I have been having scrappy withdrawals all week, and now that my amazing husband bought me a new computer yesterday, I'm getting back into the swing of things.  My old computer was VERY old, and now that I have Windows 8...YIKES!  It's so different.  But I'm learning as I go.  The software I used to print my photos is obsolete now, so I'm having to figure out the new system.  Ugh!  But on the bright side, I have a fresh new computer, and it's so much faster & has WAY more storage!  Woo hoo!

Anyway, I have lots to share today.  There is an awesome contest going on over at My Creative Scrapbook! Check it out!

This month, the team at My Creative Scrapbook is GDT for The Color Room.  I was so excited to be able to take part in this...the color schemes & sketches over there are just beautiful, and the work the team creates is just breathtaking.  Go HERE to see the color palette and all the team's layouts :)

Here's mine...I also used the sketch they provided.  I just LOVE these colors, and I decided to create a page from scratch, using no patterned paper.  I used a little plastic jar to stamp my big circles. I watered down some paint and just made my own circle stamp.  Then I took a brush and "watercolored" the circles.  I like the faded look they have.  I also did some stamping and added in some film strip washi and some floss.  I cut those little circles with the word "love" and the black hearts with my Cameo.  I'm amazed that it cuts things so tiny and so perfectly!

I was planning on sharing another page I created with my May Main Kit from MCS, but I just realized that my photographs are on my external hard drive that is at the computer I'll need to re-photograph them.  I'll work on that for tomorrow!

Have a great day, and remember to BACK UP FREQUENTLY!!  :)
