Simply Betty Challenges: Pockets in my Layout

Greetings! It’s time for another Scrap Team challenge from Simply Betty Stamps! This week, we are challenging you to make a layout using pockets! Wanna see my project?

These photos are from 2009. My sisters and I threw my Mom a surprise Pirate Birthday Party. She adores all things pirate (especially if said pirates look like Johnny or Orlando!), and we’ve actually had some other pirate bashes since then. Anywho, I decided to use Simply Betty’s Jack and Lizzy digis on top of my pocket. Here’s what is inside of the pocket.

Two more photos! Pockets are a great way to add lots of extra stuff to your page that would not have fit otherwise. And, they are also great to hide things that may be too personal for everyone to see. That’s not the case here though. Look at how teeny Phoenix is! He’s only 6 months old! Awwwww!

Here’s a close up of Lizzy and Jack, plus my sis Monica and my BFF Terry peeking out of the pocket. FYI, the dude holding Phoenix in the other pocket picture is our very good friend Donmar. I colored the SBS digis with my markers.

And there’s my very happy Mother! She’s squeeing with delight! And oh yeah…that’s me holding Nix. :)

I do hope you will join the Simply Betty gals for this new challenge! It’s easy, and a lot of fun! So hop over to the SBS Challenge Blog to see what the other chicks have cooked up for you and to play along! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
