Pretty Girl

Here is my LO for Scrapbook Steals MWM #40! I used MME's So Sophie Clever kit for the pp, title, and journal card. I LOVE the So Sophie collections. They are all so pretty! I thought Clever went perfectly with these pictures with my girls helping me get dressed for my wedding! I added some American Crafts glitter brads and ribbon. The frame is cut from the Elegant Edges cricut cartridge. My new favorite!! The flower is from Making Memories. I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Gumdrop! I thought it would be a good match, but I think the match is a little too good! I am also entering this in Wee Memories #53: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo #39

It's week 39 over at Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo! Wow, I can't believe the next one is 40 already! These last 10 went by super fast! I love this picture from my wedding with my cousins, Laurel and Maria! The little rectangles in the sketch are supposed to be pictures too, but I decided to just use the one large picture. The arrow was plain white and I decided to dress it up with some glimmer mist. I like how it turned out except for the 2 big splotches! Thanks for stopping by!

Here is my recipe: Making Memories Smooth Grapevine cs, wedding journal page, & wedding pp
Pebbles chips & flower

Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo #36

Hey bloggie buddies! Whew, that headache wiped me out for a few days this week! Thanksfully I am feeling much better now! Thanks for all the kind words this week! I am so excited to see I am at 150 followers also! Welcome to all the newbies! Here is my take on Scrapbook Steals MWM #36. When I first saw this sketch, I was quite intimidated by the "graffiti wall!" I don't use rub ons that often. But I like them and have a small collection of them now! Based on the rub ons that I had, I decided to use some pictures from this years Valentines. I am really pleased with the outcome though! I used a mix of Fancy Pants Splendid, Fancy Pants Mulberry Rd, and Basic Grey Sultry rub ons. The pp and die cut frame is all from My Minds Eye So Sophie Graceful collection. My Stampin' UP supplies are Very Vanilla, Crushed Curry, & Rich Razzleberry cs; Rich Razzleberry ribbon, ink, and marker; and Curly label punch. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
