Photo Cube

This photo cube made from CD cases was so much fun to do. My friend Barb R. emailed me this idea. I sat down last night and completed it in just a few short hours. I think it took me longer to find the photos I wanted to use than to make it. I used Basic Grey paper (of course) for the Boys I used the Archaic 6x6 paper pack and for the girls I used the Euphoria 6x6 paper pack. The pages are very simple done.
The #1 is coated in Flower Soft. I love this new product for adding texture to chipboard.
The #2 is Glimmer Misted.
The #3 is inked and then stamped with Staz On ink. I really like how it turned out.
The #4 is Glittered. Who doesn't like glitter?

August Joy

The patterned paper is from a kit that I purchased from Shop Crop Suey. I did a little bubble wrap painting. The letters are Tim Holtz Grungeboard.(I love this stuff) I painted,sanded and glossy accented them. All in all a very simple page but I loved this photo of Blaze and didn't want to deter from it with a lot of clutter on the page.

This is my Ray. We were at the lake for the August long weekend and I had been commenting on what a hot guy he was, so he started posing for me. He makes me smile.

Gum + Hair = A New Do

This page gave me some serious grief. I just had a creative block that I couldn't seem to break. I finally had a break through last night. It came together easily after I found my mojo. I did some bubble wrap painting, a little stamping, my Big Shot for some of the lettering and I used some flower soft in the flowers. I like how the page came out. Oh yeah and for those of you who know how angry I was over the whole gum in the hair fiasco...I am over it now.:)
