I will be sharing pics of her NEW room very soon...still waiting on a Ocean Canvas I ordered from Etsy to come in to hang over her dresser. And I have a couple of projects I'm making for her shelves...we will have new carpet put in after Spring Break. Then she's DONE (well we have to paint her dressers white once it gets warmer). Then we move onto Riley's new bedroom in the basement..phew. We have most everything ordered...but we have to paint and get everything put together and done. Saving that for AFTER Spring Break for sure. He's super excited to move downstairs and have his own big bed and space. I'm tired just thinking of all I gotta do to get him moved in...oy vey ;)
Check out my new Lifestyle blog "Bitz of Me" ...I have a couple of new posts up and one coming tomorrow on some cute things I finished up!!
Enjoy Your Life!!
(A TouchTwin Inspiration Hop)
Today all the TouchTwin DT gals have a fun March Inspiration Hop for you to showcase these awesome alcohol markers. If you haven't tried them you really should...the ink flows beautifully, great-soft brush nibs and they work with other alcohol markers you may have on hand. (shop here) I am IMPATIENTLY waiting for Spring to arrive here in VA...me and that groundhog have some things to talk about cuz we got snow last night...ahem..ugh! So all my projects lately have been BRIGHT and SPRINGy LOL for a reason. So I had to use this cutie-patootie by Saturated Canary called "Summer Swing". I had a tire swing growing up that I spent a lot of time on...it was hung under our huge willow tree and I have such great memories. Ahhhh the joy of summer when you are a kid...nothing beats it yet we seem to wish it away all too soon. That's why I added the "enjoy" sentiment...we need to make sure we enjoy all the moments in our life, because they are usually gone way too soon!
I'm entering this sweetie into the following challenges:
I used pretty papers from a few different pads but the main one is First Edition "Hideaway". I love the bright spring green and corals together. The grass elements (coated with Stickles) and the "enjoy" sentiment were done on my Cameo machine...man I love that thing! The "enjoy" sentiment actually said "enjoy the moment" but I cut it down to just one word to simplify! I distressed all my papers with my Zutter Distress machine and the butterflies were done with punches. The circle element over the image was done with a Spellbinders die...I like spotlighting the main image this way!
TouchTwin Colors Used:
Greens: G43, GY47,GY59,GY174
Corals: R14,RP7R, Colorless Blender
Some Stickles were put on the butterflies and her frilly underskirt. Diamond Glaze on her eyes and shoes for shine.
That's it for me...now your next stop on the hop is my
lovely friend Vicki's Blog!
