Magnolia Blog Hop

If you have some time and wish to see some amazingly talented designs, hop over to Magnolia-licious this weekend! Diana is having a Fall Blog Hop with her DT showing some amazing Fall work using Magnolia stamps. See what these gals have done!

I do have a LO to share with you tonight. I rarely do pastel layouts, but when I saw these papers, I fell in love with them right off the bat! They are Kaiser papers (doublesided, too). When I placed the papers down, they just melted into one another. I decided to back each and every sheet of the Kaiser with black card stock. Even the background PP has been backed. Did that ever make a difference! I also thought it would be fun to add some stars and some bling (above the photo). I hope you like it! Here it is:

Always Be Yourself


Here is another. I didn't really like how it turned out. It looked too busy. The photo is of DS on his birthday. He had just pulled a muscle in his shoulder. DDIL captured the moment perfectly! Thank you darling! Anyway, the PP has all sorts of birthday celebration words on it. The Prima gems were purple and blue. That didn't work. So, being a clever girl, I chose to color the purple ones with a burgundy Copic marker! It colored the crystals perfectly! Did you know that Copics would do that for you? I also stamped on the flower. I wanted to tone it down. If your wondering who made the scalloped PP, I did! I punched all those little holes using my trusty MM tool kit, LOL! I had already done a LO entitled "Sir Whines Alot" and had to come up with something similar so I could use the crown. I also colored some of the gems on the crown. The photo was NOT staged! After the photo was taken, DS hurt so much that he called us to find out what to do, LOL. Deal!

Want An Inexpensive LO w/out Making It Yourself?
Soon, I will be offering some layouts for sale on this blog at really LOW prices. The PPs may be older, but the prices will be low and affordable. You would have to pay for the postage in addition to the LO. A one page LO will be less than $10. Payment will be made through Paypal. I always use quality papers and embellishments. I pay close attention to details. My layouts always sold on ebay with 100% positive feedback! Stay tuned! Maybe something will catch your eye! If you may be interested, leave a comment or send me an e-mail. I'd love to know if anyone would be interested.

I hope this Friday is the start of a great weekend for you. Thanks for stopping by!

XO,

Chris
