Point And Click!

Hello :-) 

To get myself all psyched up for the upcoming ***photo-taking-bonanza*** that is December, I thought I'd SMASH* me up a little homage to the great point-and-click.

This is my mini SMASH* book.  It's my FAVE!! 

Inside this little book is a small collection of one photograph SMASH* pages I like to call 'One Shot Wonders'.  And the best part??  I find my inspiration for each pages' title from a song! 

For this page, I knew I had to color up Say Cheese Sophie from Sweet Nothings Stamp Co.  Not only is she adorable, she's sportin' some serious photog mojo!

And here's a little close-up...

If you wanna see this page come together, hop on over and CHECK IT OUT!!  And yes, this particular page title was inspired by a song sung by a big hair band :-)  Mmmmmhmmmm!!

See ya in Decemberdailyland!!

December Daily LOVE!

DUDE!!  I totally did it!!  I acutally completed the base book for my December Daily album :-)  It fought me tooth and nail tho'...
There were glitter avalanches...and tool malfunctions...and delayed shipping times...  Buuuuut---I.  DID.  IT. 
Take that, December Daily!
I stitched myself up some covers... 

...and embellished with my favorite bling-n'-things.
Now, I can begin the even harder task of actually completing the photo and journaling portion of this fabulously huge project.
December Daily?!!?  I got you this year.  I got you.

Good Morning!!  Today, I thought I'd share a little something...odd
This set of postcards were a part of a week long bloggy swap with 100 Proof Press stamps that happened over on the Gauche Alchemy blog a bit ago.  If you wanna check out the rest of the creations just CLICK!!
My postcard backgrounds were created with my FAB new Dylusions sprays.  I'm super impressed with the color vibrancy you get from these little bottles of goodness!!

When I saw the animal masks stamp, I knew right away that I wanted to create several, sort of animal/human creatures.  And when I saw the FAB wing stamps, it was ON!!  Buuut, what good are winged things, without a bit of a celestial backdrop??  The silhouette star cluster stamp was the perfect addition to my backgrounds.  LOVE that stamp!!  I can totally see it getting tons of mileage in my stash :-)

Here's a closer look at the three, but pay close attention!!  You may just pick up a few words of wisdom---fortune cookie style!


Thanks for stopping by today!!  See ya on the flip side ;-)

I think this particular one almost looks like an animal print.  WILD, man!!  Now, hop on over and check it out!
Resistance is futile :-)

Good Morning!!

I am so excited for you to be joining Sweet Nothings Stamp Co. and it’s very talented Design Team for our November Creative Challenge.

From now on, the 2nd Tuesday of every other month, we will run a Creative Challenge. Some months, the challenge may be a color palette to work with. Other months, it may be a theme or a layout. Every other month will be something new and creative for you to challenge yourself with :-) There will be a sweet little prize to be won as well!

For the month of November, we will be challenging you to create a project with this beautiful neutral palette. 

This super cute color palette is great for any type of card and you can use any sentiment you'd like. You may decide to colour your image in neutral tones and let the papers and embellishments give a splash of colour or you may choose to create and entire monochromatic card. The possibilities are endless!!

Here's what I've come up with...

The inspiration photo totally reminded me of a soft, muted silver and gold combo, so I decided to color up Pumpkin Sophie and add her to a completely blinged-out banner!! 

The "THANKFUL" sentiment on my banner is perfect for this season of giving thanks.  Kinda a big-'ol-flashy-bling-i-fied sign reminding me of all I've got to be thankful for this year, hanging right there on my wall :-)

And here's a close-up of Sophie all colored up in sepia :-) 
Now, onto 'THE RULES'... **Dun, Dun, Duuuunnnn!**
