The Color Room Palette #73

When I first saw this weeks palette I knew exactly what I was going to use. I brought out my leftovers from the May Swirlydoo's Kit "Grandma's Garden". I was surprised because I was able to get this done in 45 minutes...yippee!!! LOL!

The Color Room Palette #72

This weeks palette was so much fun!! I was totally inspired by one of my favorite designers and DT member for The Color Roon, Finnabair. She has a style all her own. And, man, is it hard to duplicate. I tried my best to scraplift her style, but mine looks nothing like hers :(  I love the look of all her embellishments. How they look like they're embedding into the paper. How the heck does she do that!!! Visit her blog: Tworzysko Finnabair and you'll see what  I mean!!

Swirlydoos Round Robin Challenge

Hello all!! Today I would like to share a page I did for the Round Robin Challenge at Swirlydoos. I'm on Team 2 Spot 2. I got to lift Erin's gorgeous page. 

I used the Tim Holt papers that came in the Swirlydoos August Technique Kit. To make the paper purplish burgundy color I used  Pomegranate Glimmermist and ink the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The Look

This is the original page by Erin. I took her design and turned it clockwise once.

Thanks for taking a peek!!

The Color Room Palette # 69

Hello fellow bloggers! Today I'd like to share with you the page I made for The Color Room #69 Palette. I'm happy to say that I used My Minds Eye pattern paper that's like 4 or 5 years old!!!! I love digging through my stash and using old products in a new way. The butterflies are from my Etsy shop. I'm a huge butterfly freak and HAVE to HAVE them in ALL my!!

This is my dd when she was just 3 years old...sigh! Now she's 13 and  helps her baby sister make wishes with dandelions. She's such a sweet girl!

About a year ago I picked up the flower border at Michaels. The top had black lace that didn't match much. So, I tore it off, glued seam binding and added Zva  12" pearl strips.

Here I scrunched up a doilie, opened it very carefully, then sprayed with Patina and Dreamsicle Glimmermist. 

 This weeks palette.

Thanks for taking the time!!
