Kenny K Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop!

Welcome to a super exciting Smeared & Smudged Design Team Blog Hop featuring some ultra cool digis from Kenny K. As I have mentioned in previous posts, they are one of our fabulous sponsors this month…and you still have time to play along! I love so many of their images! They’re cheeky, rockin’ and so cool. You’ve gotta pick up some of their hawt images for yourself if you haven’t already!

The Design Team was fortunate enough to get digis from Kenny K, and we are so excited to brig our creations to you today! I made a layout using Mrs. Claus.


These photos are from Christmas Eve, 2005. Every year, my sisters, Mom, Gene and I chose a theme for us to wear. We’ve done Gothic Christmas (I know…not a stretch for us!), Ice Princesses, Victorian…just to name a few. Well, in 2005, we decided to be different styles of Santa Claus. I LOVED getting dressed this year! Check out my outfit…I bought an actual tree skirt, and turned it into a skirt I could wear! I thought it came out fabulous!

But onto Kenny K…do you see my digi??? She blends in pretty well, doesn’t she?


Isn’t she super sassy? I think she’s awesome! She is done up with my colored pencils, and I think she fits right in with the rest of us!


You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. I am proud to say that Phoenix helped me quite a bit in putting this page together. He painted the background with me, helped me glue the paper…we had a great time doing it! I love crafting with him.


So I am really happy with my jolly layout. I think it really captured the mood of the day. And my Kenny K Mrs. Claus is the perfect embellishment! A HUGE thank you to Kenny and Elena for your fantastic sponsorship this month!!! We love you!!! Make sure you visit not only their store…but their awesome Challenge Blog too!

Please be sure to visit the rest of the bad-ass Smeared & Smudged Design Team. I am quite certain they will wow you with their creations!

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!
