1st FACE Paint - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Jan 30 DT REVEAL

Hi there!

I am here sharing my
Sketch-y Friday
Design Team 
Remember, back at the beginning of January, I mentioned that I will NOT be printing any more
photos until March...
When I found these gems of my lil'guy and his first full face paint
I was thrilled to be able to bring 
this moment back to life.
He's so serious but determined, and so darn CUTE!

Here are some close ups:
Left side

Right side
 I combined My Minds Eye and Kaiser Craft.
These two collections work well together, giving a sweet masculine feel
to my page
A fun mix --up title
Prima street signs, along with Kaiser Craft stickers
and Fancy Pants mini alphas.
 I completed the title with a coordinating paint splatter
BoBunny Trinkets of traffic lights was only fitting 
for this layout
I used my circles to mimic figure eight race tracks
I finally cut into my Evalicious snipsnip tags
 and of course my FAVorite part of this layout
I used my caution washi tape on
this photo
"CAUTION Cuteness" 
look at that face - RIGHT?!

Pucker Powder 2 - Let's Get Sketchy January week 3 DT REVEAL

Hi there

I am sharing my 
January Week 3
Team A
Pucker Powder 2
**Giggle giggle **
This is another page (actually the other half of Pucker Powder) from our Florida trip,
back in February 2013
My little guy just had to try the pucker powder tubes
and boy-oh-boy Mummy and Daddy 
could barley take it!!
 I wanted the title to look like a vintage lite-up city billboard sign
I pop dotted it and added some stitching
and used a thickers white foam 2 (for part two)
 I went for the messy look with my Tim Holtz mist
and some DIY Enamel Dots + mat nail polish to match
I added the splat with Martha Stewart White Texture Effect
- that's what was going on in our mouth
~ A little explosion of sour and a splat of saliva trying to keep up LoL
Pucker Powder
Here is the other half of the page, I did back in June 2014
It will flow as a double layout nicely
- only fitting since these two pages will be
side-by-side in my book.

NEW YEARS - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A - Jan.16th

Hi there!

I am sharing my
Team A
Look how young hubby and I look! That year would "engrave" change of life.
(our little guy was 3 months old)
Fitting I chose to create using the BoBunny ENGRAVER COLLECTION
As a brand NEW mummy, my world would FOREVER be complete
I up-cycled my gold chocolate wrap
(I had to eat it ALL *she winks)
Mixed in some newsprint with some textured Fancy Pants
corrugated paper
My bakers twine is trimmed with gold foil thread
This is a Paper Reflections Slide Mount, inside is October After Mini Market stickers,
with a Tim Holtz Vintage Trinkets
"us 2009"
It really works for this page
a new year full of new ideas! 
For this layout I pulled out BAZZILBASICPAPER Glitz templates
(this was my loot from a ScrapMuch? Crop - if you haven't attended one
you should and SOON!)
I chose to use the crown template,  with BasicGrey opaline half pearls -
I needed to add some Bling but wanted it subtle

so much scrappy FUN - ScrapMuch? DT TEAM A REVEAL

Hi there!

Did you celebrate?  I did, with my hubby, my little guy and some close friends.
Low key, but with my family and friends
- just what the "Doctor" ordered

Today, I am sharing my my very first 
Design Team REVEAL
of 2015 
so much scrappy FUN
In 2013, I hosted a small crop at Casa Ramirez.
It quickly turned into an annual event.
I have been carrying around these photos, together with this chevron My Mind's Eye paper, for 
some TIME
For ME, 2015 is all about time - time to catch up but most importantly,
to spend more time with my friends and my family

 Left side close-up:
This is my wonderful group of Girls I have surrounded myself with, and call FRIENDS.
(my little guy snuck in there for a photo-op LoL!)

 Right side close-up:
 I choose to use two smaller photos mounted together, with a double mat.
I distressed the edges.
My Fancy Pants label sticker reads:
"I will never forget! But will wrote it down...just in case"
 What a group of Girls - we have SO MUCH FUN!
 My patterned paper is Stampin'UP + a free chevron cut file from Laura Whitaker
 - who doesn't LOVE CHEVRONS?!
Here, I mixed in Say it in Pearls, chub paper clip, Prima bark star 
with a Studio Calico wood veneer
I mixed in a plain tag that embossed with my chevron folder, layered with Fancy Pants fun tag,
we always have a lot FUN!

 Here is the sketch by Laura:
