Where's Rhi-Rhi? Layout

So this layout I was so excited to make... but had a helluva time at first. I put Rhiannon in Phoenix's high chair for the first time a couple weeks ago to try to keep her occupied so I could maybe get some work done. But then I looked at her... she's just so small in that big high chair! She kinda disappeared! So, instead of doing my work, I pulled out the camera and started snapping. She's just so tiny! I love this high chair because of all the bright colors. So of course, when I made a page, I knew it needed to be just as bright. But, as luck would have it, NONE of the paper in my ENTIRE store was what I needed. I went through my paper at home... still nothing. The greens were always just a little off... and of course, that just won't do!!! I was vending at a crop this past Sunday, as was another store. I was passing by their stuff (it's always fun to see what other vendors have!) and saw the green leaves paper. I freaked! I just so happened to have printed the pics in case I found something at their "store." Well, it was EXACTLY what I was looking for! And the green was purrrrfect! So, I ran back to my table and practically threw the page together! When you find just what you've been looking for, things usually fall right into place. I made the layout in like 10 minutes, barring the title of course. No need for fancy-smanshy embellishments here! It came out just how I had envisioned. I love it. It's bright, cheery, it mimics the leaves on the high chair perfectly, and Rhiannon is just friggin' adorable!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
