Positively Pink with Paper Issues and Unity...

For the new theme at Paper Issues they have teamed up with Unity Stamps...awesome I know! The theme is "PINK" to coincide with the Month of October and Breast Cancer Awareness month. You can follow along on the hop from here and make sure you link up your project over at PI... For my first layout I didn't use so much pink, I did a layout of my daughter after she cut her hair for donation. She also wanted to purchase the pink hair piece with all the money going to Breast Cancer Awareness in our local area. I was so proud of her. For a 9 year old she sure has a big adult heart (this was actually her second time cutting and donating her hair)
For my second layout I just did a fun one of my daughter in her pink Christmas pajamas...

Homecoming with Bella! Boutique Family...

Today I am up over at Ruby Rock-It Bella!Fundamentals. I love this Bella! Boutique Family line. The colors it has, the embellishments and oh the patterned papers! The leaves were just at their prime on this gorgeous fall day for my son's Homecoming. We had so much fun taking photos. Their attire and the fall foliage back drop matched perfectly with this RRBF line, which I might add comes all together in a nice little kit making wonderful layouts come together very quickly without all the guess work of matching papers....

One Enchanted Evening with WRMK Black Widow line...

Hi Everyone! Today I want to show you that just because you have "themed" papers, doesn't mean you have to do "themed" layouts. I love the Black Widow Halloween line from WRMK. There is such a variety that comes with it so I wanted to work with that. My son just went to Homecoming and the pictures were just perfect for this line. I wanted to go with the Gothic classy look of the papers so I sanded and tore the edges of the paper a little bit. I also used some of the WRMK paper doilies and inked them. One I inked straight black and then layered another one on top after inking it with some oranges, yellows and blacks. I added some rolled flowers as well as some flower brads that are included in this collection. A few finishing touches and I had a perfect "non-halloween" layout using halloween papers.
