A couple layouts to share . . .

I'm anxiously waiting for my nice postal lady to bring me all the new Lily Bee goodies from the recent CHA release, but in the meantime I've been playing around with some of the great collections from the last release.  I just adore Lily Bee's "Lovely" line . . . it's one of my all-time favorites.  The picture was taken on my birthday, and the journaling talks about how my birthdays with my girls are so much sweeter than any birthday's I ever had before becoming a mommy (not that those birthdays weren't fun too).  My girls are like icing on my birthday cake!

I learned this great little paper quilting technique from a tutorial by Davinie Fiero.  I used Pop-Art Pink and Ruby Shimmerz Spritz to color my handmade fabric flower. I painted the base of the cupcake with Chocolat Shimmerz paint. 

It's hard to believe that summer is almost over.  Though thanks to severe budget cuts in our local school district, my girls don't back to school for another couple of weeks.  Yay!!  Two more weeks of summer!  Going swimming at my parents' house is one of our regular summer activities.  I have a gazillion swimming pictures from the last 6 or 7 years.  The picture in this layout was taken in 2005 (I don't scrap chronologically, obviously).


I used a sheet of lace cardstock as a mask with Shimmerz Spritz and Vibez to create the background:

Have a wonderful weekend!
