Challenge # 6 My Mess during/after scrapping





TWS ScrapBeach Challenge 1 & 5

Colors of the Rainbow Challenge required a recipe of items to be used...using all the colors of the rainbow and the following recipe I created this page using the paper pack I just received. The Mira collection from Brenda Walton, K&Company. It reminds me of the colors of summer when I was growing up. From the first time I saw it...it made me smile and remember that time.

1 color of ink or paint

2 pieces of colored card stock

3 pieces of pattern paper

4 photos

5 embellishments

6 bling pieces

This Page also works for Challenge #5 called "Opening Presents" requiring a page using the thre newest things I have purchased but have not used yet. The Paper pack was the 1st thing used. I have looked for it for a long time but since it is not the newest collection from K&Company it was not in my Local Scrap Store so I ordered it from ebay and just got it last week. The second item was the thicker letters...they were white but I inked them with the Tim Holtz Orange Marmalade Distress Ink pad I just got a few weeks ago from LTC.

February Mini Album

My mini album swap for Amanda J...Life on the Beach TWS. The theme was "Love of my Life" but we decided to change it to "Life and Love" because there are so many things that we love in our lives. We both like pinks, blues and greens and we decided on 7 pages because we like the number 7.

March Mini Album for DeNetra Pics

This is only my second mini swap for TWS. This one was created for DeNetra for the March mini swap. It was really funny because the theme was shimmer and shine but from the second I sat down with this album...it was definitely not shimmer and shine. I am so glad she like vintage! I was able to add some shimmer and shine with the embossing and glimmer mist. I changed to cover numerous times and even at the last minute when I was putting it into the box to mail to her...late...and realized that the paper flowers I made earlier in the evening would look perfect on this album...so...you guessed it! I changed it again! I hope she likes it!!!



This was what it looked like before the flower change!
