Game On!

Game day :)

I love how this picture spans the page this is a 12x12 page.  I spritzed and sprayed, stamped and stenciled.  I used six punches, 3 cirlcles different sizes, a ticket and 2stars different sizes.  This was a fun page to make, I love the blue and green together and I think all the stamps I used are from Stampin Up.

I am entering this in the following challenges.

I created this page for the sketch challenge at My Creative Sketches, I thought the sketch was really easy to work with and I love the flags.  I made the flowers out of tissue paper, super easy.  I love all the bright citrus summer colors.  Here is the sketch I followed

rock star or beetlejuice, you decide

image taken from web

Beetlejuice, beetlejuice, oh no don't say it!  Beetlejuice!  was my inspiration behind this page with the wild picture and the black and white stripes.

I used stampin ups chevron embossing folder that I inked and then embossed , with the diamond paper on the right I stamped it then embossed with dots folder.  The patterned paper I can't remember who it's by, I know the frames are a different company than the black with dew drops as well as the black and white striped.  I used a star punch, ticket punch (which I love) tag dies, scalloped and circle punch.  I love how I only used black and white and red, wasn't sure I could do it.  I used stamps from stampin up, martha stewart, 7 gypsies and technique tuesday.  There is actually a tiny mirror in the upper left of the page there are two more on the bottom right but the way the pic was taken you can;'t even tell.

It's a sketch challenge, the first one for Scrap It Girl.  I love sketches it really gives me a jumping off point and speeds up the process.
the quote says "The eyes are the window to the soul"


When I seen this sketch I immediately knew the photos I wanted to use and the colors. This is my daughter, my muse, (sometimes, other times, well let's not go there, tehe), for ability to have fun, relax, enjoy life and don't be so serious! She reminds me of this all the time in ways she isn't even aware of. I love these bold photos and these colors. This was an awesome sketch to work with thanks Kelly Starsky, it made things so much easier. I have been working on making my own flowers, the larger ones here were made with Stampin Ups build a blossom punch.

Some supplies I used on this layout; recollections border decoration,
stampin up build a blossom punch, digi paper from digitial crea and summertime designs, th muse tag, misc buttons, ek border punch, prima bling and the background paper I kid you not is paris hilton, dont laugh this is awesome paper, in fact I loved it so much I ended up buying another pad.
