A Pebbles Layout & some My Scraps News!

Happy Thursday, friends!  The cold seems to have left us here in Florida, and now it's just gloomy and rainy.  It's in the 60s right now, so it could be a lot worse.  Dropping kids off at school in the rain is not a fun way to start the day.  But I know so many of you are dealing with snow...something I can't even fathom.  My thoughts are with you!

This is a page I created a few weeks back for My Scraps and More.  I used the adorable Pebbles line "From Me to You."  I did something new on this layout.  I used a random piece of cardstock that I had created for a different project that didn't work out.  I designed the piece on the left a while back for something else...trying to create a rainbow.  I liked it, but it just didn't work for that particular layout at the time.  I kept it, thinking I'd use it somehow.  I had no idea how perfect it would match these Pebbles colors!  I had to throw it into this page somehow.  I didn't want to cover it up, either...because I love how it looks.  So I made it a big design element on this page.

I love all the matching chipboard pieces, epoxy stickers and fun papers!  I added in a bit of floss here.

These cute little word tiles were something I picked up at Michael's several weeks ago.  They were in the jewelry department and I thought they'd be cute on a layout.  I was right :)

Stickers and mixing them!

Yeah, so I got lazy with my vellum and you can totally see my adhesive through the hearts.  Honestly, it doesn't bother me.  I like that it doesn't look perfect.

And a close up of my accidental favorite part :)  I spread the modeling paste over the template and then sprayed various colors of Color Shine while the template was still on the paper and the paste was still wet.  Then I let it dry.  Pretty cool effect.

And now on to the My Scraps News.....

I don't know if you heard, but there are some changes happening over at My Scraps and More!  Our current owner, Tammi Bennett, and her husband are retiring.  She's turning the store over to my good scrappy friend and fellow DT member Audrey Yeager starting February1st!  Tammi and Audrey are essentially switching places.  Tammi will now be a DT member while Audrey runs the store and forum.  I wish them both luck...they're both awesome.  I'm so lucky and excited to be a member of this team!  Stay tuned for a big sale coming to the store on February 1st!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your day, friends!

  2. what an awesome page! i was thinking of applying for the design team!

  3. This is stunning! The colors are just out of this world!

  4. I love it when a 'mistake' becomes the 'something perfect' somewhere else! This is a great page. I like the way the colors pop off the neutral BG, and I didn't even notice the adhesive showing through the vellum!
