I have an extra special bonus for you again this month! Arlene has graced me with some amazing clusters made from my latest kit, Summer's Splendor, and of course I had to share them with all of you. They are simply darling!
Hi everyone! Hope you are having a splendorous summer. Summer finally came around here in the frozen tundra of Minnesota. Last week we even had two days when it was over 100°. Being from Texas I am used to those sort of temps, but most Minnesotans are not. Everywhere I went that day it was the topic of conversation. These people do not like the heat. I actually had to wait in line to get my daily cola slurpee fix. Suddenly everyone and their Momma wanted a frozen beverage. :-P
In honor of summer finally arriving I decided to do a kit full of birds, flowers, butterflies, and cute little things you might find in your summer garden. The color challenge at DSO had the perfect colors for a splash of summer beauty. Thanks to Kristine for hosting this month's challenge!
One of my followers, Arlene, contacted me to let me know she had created some clusters with my kits and she thought I might like to have them. Like them? I love them! Oh my... they are simply gorgeous! So gorgeous I had to get her permission to package them up and share them with all my readers. There was no way I could do them justice with a single preview so I've grouped them by theme.
First off we have these amazing wedding clusters. Most of the elements are from my Two Hearts, One Love kit.
Next up are some amazing clusters done with my most recent kit, Vintage Verde. These clusters are tagger sized.
Next is some amazing garden themed clusters. Most of these elements are from my kit, Yesterday's Garden.
Next we have some amazing fantasy type clusters from my Unicorn Dreams kit.
Last but not least, my favorite set is some vintage themed clusters with most of the elements coming from my Vintage Grace kit. I am so in love with the cluster she created around the vintage light.
Aren't they all just amazing?
Special, special thank you to Arlene for sharing her gorgeous clusters with me and for allowing me to share them with all of you!
Can you believe it? It is only the 6th of the month and here I am with my DSO Color Challengekit. Just in time for National Scrapbooking Day! Moniaguirre is hosting this month and I promised her I would not be procrastinating this month. With the absolutely stunning color palette she chose it was so easy to get my kit done. This was one of those kits where I neglected the housework, neglected the laundry, and even neglected the hubby. I kept saying I'll take a break after this paper or this element and then I'd get lost in creating and the time just flew.
I am so in love with this kit. It is OK to be in love with your own kit, right? Ha! I can't wait to get started creating some layouts with these gorgeous colors. I hope you feel the same way. I'd love to see what all you talented people can come up with!
Here I am at the last possible moment with my contribution to the DSO Color Challenge hosted by Dhariana. I procrastinated and procrastinated this month because there were just too many colors to choose from and it totally confused my wee little brain.
Look at all those colors! First I thought of something "sunny" with the orange, yellow, and bronze. Nah, not in the mood for sunny. So I put it away for a week or so and then started looking at it again. Finally it dawned on me what the silver, navy, and dark pink reminded me of. Those are the colors in Ms. Jewel's bikini from last summer!
Beach Babe was born!
Isn't she the cutest little Beach Babe you've ever seen? Now I can scrap all of her pictures from last summer with a kit custom designed to match her bikini. I am the best Mimi ever! :-)
Hi and welcome to my blog! I'm a 46 year old accountant from Texas, currently living in the frozen hell known as Minnesota. I was just married in May '09 to my soul mate. I can't believe it took me so long to find him, but I'm certainly glad I finally did! I have a beautiful daughter and a gorgeous granddaughter who are usually the stars of my layouts. Besides digital scrapbooking, I also enjoy playing games on Pogo, gardening, photography, reading, swimming, and life in general.
Thanks for stopping by!
