Kim’s August DT Reveal
I can’t believe we are already into August!! This DT term has flown by!! This is a bittersweet post for me as I’ve come to the end of my DT term here at Scrapbook Nerds…It’s been a pleasure playing with y’all!
I’ve also had a blast playing with all of the yummy goodness Barb and Joy have provided!! Especially this line…although I had a really hard time cutting up these purdey Lucky Starz papers from Bella Blvd…I LOVE them and I tend to hoard rather than cut up papers I love! LOL!! But…it was to scrap a pic of my most favourite toy…MY BIKE!! (Although I did totally cheat and used the cover sheet from my collection pack! LOL!!) I also played with some YUMMY dies from Kaisercraft…eeeeeks!! I also pulled in some papers from Echo Parks Here and Now collection. I love mixing manufacturers!!
“Crazy Horse has been a very faithful friend to me for that last 15 years and while I’ve got a new ride now (Kemosabi) I still have a very soft spot in my heart for this old girl! Whenever life got a little much to bear this girl was always there for me. With a good kick she would roar to life and braaaaaaaaap my worries away. I wasn’t usually the fastest on the track (obviously from all of the mud on my number plate) but I definitely had the most fun out there! I always felt like a rawkstar throwing a leg over my pretty girl. What I love even more is that now Caitlin is racing Crazy Horse and KILLING IT on a 15 year old bike! Not only is this bike still one of the prettiest ones on the track, she’s still got it!! WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!”
I LOVE the colours in this Lucky Starz line from Bella Blvd!! SOOOOO FUN!!
Here’s a little throwback photo from the summer of 1998…Caitlin and her “Gamma” (she couldn’t pronounce her “r’s”…) playing in Gamma’s backyard. They have had a very special bond right from day one and the two of them still hang out and play together. Hard to believe this chubby cheeked little bean is heading off to university in a couple of weeks…sigh…
Here’s a close up…
I tried something a little different and even daring (for me) with this project. I have a little thing with doilies (although I’m happy to report that after my term with SN DT I am down from 5000 to just under 4000 doilies left…WAAAHHHHOOOOOOOO!!) I have really enjoyed playing with the gelatos and wondered if I could colour my doilies with them…YES YOU CAN!! Love how well they compliment the fun and happy colours of the Lucky Starz line from Bella Blvd!
Here is a super quick layout of Cate in her natural habitat. I swear she is part fish!!
@ The Grotto, Tobermory Summer of 2012
Here’s a few quick and easy cards using some scraps from the delish Lucky Starz line from Bella Blvd and dies from My Favourite Things and Kaisercraft.
Super quick and super easy!
This one is a fun little shaker card…
A closer peek…
I LOVE this line from Bella Blvd! Lucky Starz worked perfectly with my new MFT Abstract cover up die! Couldn’t ask for a quicker or easier card!!
Well that’s it for me creatively speaking but I would like to thank Joy and Barb for inviting me to be a part of their design team. I’ve had a blast and loved challenging myself to go outside my comfort zone to create. You two ladies have created a very special place for us scrappers to come and share not only our creative stuff but also our lives. You guys RAWK!! MWAH!!!
Thanks for letting me share! Happy scrapping Nerds!
