Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was really nice, a bit of a whirlwind and much too short, but that's OK.

I have been accepted to the Paper Pretties design team and I am really super excited this.  The images are sweet and I've seen a lot of upcoming new releases that I can't wait to share with you each week.  These two adorable guys released today.  They also have some really great coordinating sentiments.


Max Splasher

I chose to play with Max Splasher, a sweet little dog that is quite a character.  And he helped me with my first scrapbook page in, oh, probably 4 years or more.  I know, I know - scrapbooking was why I got into papercrafting and I haven't done it in years!!  The challenge over at Paper Pretties is Make a Splash - what a great challenge for my summer fun photos.

Here you can see Max and one of his coordinating sentiments.  You can also see some of the detail that went into this fabulous layout that I got from Twisted Sketches.  The sketch was to add ribbon, any how - any way.  I ruffled mine to resemble a wave.

Here's the full page.  It's not easy photographing a 12 x 12 page.  My youngest son hates that I am always taking pictures.  Believe me, he's having the time of his life, just sick of me taking pictures so he made this face at me.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Bermuda Bay, Summer Sun (SU!)
Paper:  Unknown
Images:  Max Splasher, Max Splasher sentiments
Ink:  Bahama Blue
Copics:  B05, C8, C10, E34, E37, E53, R02, R11
Tools:  White gel pen (Inkssentials), Cricut, SCAL, circle cutters (CM), scallop border punch (SU!)
Embellishments:  mosaic tiles (unk), purple satin ribbon (Offray)

I hope you join us for the challenge at Paper Pretties and I challenge you even further pick up something you might not have done in awhile - like a scrapbook page.  Enjoy your Monday!
