Woohoo! Check it out!

I won a Bad Girls Kit from the scrap scene giveaway!
http://www.scrapscene.com/2008/04/giveaway-winner-for-bad-girls-kit.html

I am just in total shock because there were so many entries that I didnt think I had a shot, but I got lucky! Woohoo!

Here are a couple more pages from this past weekend. I am sure you will notice that they all are more or less the same colors. That is because I took a kit that was based on black, blue and green. Then I added some extra cardstock and addons, in the same colors.

In both of these pages, notice the floral paper. Where you see the blue and green flowers, that is actually cutouts from the paper, and I glued colored paper behind the cutouts. The paper came with those cutouts - pretty neat huh?

Oh, you will also notice that I have been working more on clustering my embellishments. It isnt somethign that really comes naturally to me. Usually I will only put one or two together, so I have been trying to put more in a cluster for visual interest.

On the first one here, I used the cosmo cricket blackboard and fancy pants felt. In the openings of the flowers, I glued scraps of the felt to the back of the flower so that the bright blue peeks through. That scallopped circle paper is also from the MM journal book.

Here the journaling is on a sheet from the MM journal book. the black flower is a fabric rosette from etsy. And the patterned paper on the right is from Scenic Route. Pretty much everythign else on these pages is MM.



Here is a two page LO that I did on vacation. I dont do two pagers that much lately, but I just couldnt give up any of these photos. Photobucket

More of the MM paper, journaling paper (which I cut into a frame), chipboard buttons, acrylic tag, and stickers. ribbon is from Target, Two Maya Road sheer journaling spots, fancy pants felt, doodlebug and AC letters.

A random 'dirty little secret': I made a mistake with the lace. I cut it too short, so I used the acrylic tag to cover up the joint.



Here is another page that I made with my selection of Making Memories stuff that I took on vacation.

The background paper is from the MM Noteworthy collection. The stickers, black patterned paper, journaling sheet, and chipboard buttons are from the 5th avenue collection. the transparency is hambly, the floral PP is scenic route, the buttons and lace are misc. And there is some cosmo cricket blackboard on there too.

Oh and here is another 'dirty little secret' for you: the two big circles there arent really circles! I didnt have enough left of either one of those papers to make a whole circle, so I cut as much of the circle as I could and hid the unfinished side under the layering.

Whenever I make a scrappy mistake I usually end up liking it better than before! I think it's because I am forced to think outside the box. Nice job on all of these, Meg!
