These kits sell out fast, so grab yours a.s.a.p!!!!!

My first page is based on this month's sketch:

And here's my take on it:
Best Friends

And some close up's:

I used some glass beads for the center. Dropped some Glossy Accents on my flower first and then added the beads. I then placed a big glob (sp) of Glossy Accents right over the beads, and let it air dry. Those beads are going nowhere!

You are a winner
(I'm so proud of you)
There's a whole story behind this page. I won't bother you with the complete story, but this girl in the picture, is our youngest daughter. She has Autism and ADHD, and she worked SO harded this past year, with lots of therapies. She did an amazing job, and has learned so much. So YEAH... we are PROUD!!!!

Here are some close up's:

I had these big foam roses laying around and cut them in half. I used the bottom part as well. Those are the ones where the big metal beads are glued in.

I actually used a lid, from a jar, to put that beautiful teal flower in. I raised it a bit, using beads underneath.

I picked some leaves from my garden a few weeks back and put them to dry in between a book.
Before I put them to use, I added a layer of Multi Medium to both sides, to make them a little sturdier. (is that a word?, probably wrong spelled)

These metal thingies came from an old jeans, so don't go search for them, cause they are not by a scrapbook brand.

Cards and Tags
I so love all these beautiful papers in this kit. So many possibilities for fussy cutters!!!

And another one.....

Reversable Tag
 The big flower is handmade after a tutorial by Vicky Alberto, which you can find HERE!!!

and some close up's:
I love those Artisan Frames by Pink Paislee.

 I colored my lace using Distress Reinkers.

And this is the Backside of the above tag.
 I so love that beautiful stamp, that comes in the Main Kit.
Some close up's:

And this is my last tag for today.........
 I used the Artisan Frames in a different way here. Colored them with the LuminArte Silk Acrylic Glaze, that comes in the Main Kit.

 The Bling, that comes in the Main Kit, is sooooo awesome. I LOVE this color.

I cut one of the Artisan Frames up, and used it as a border.

I hope you enjoyed my projects.
