Create Create and Create Some More

I was able to do three LOS this week. The first is not my favorite, but I am happy that I was able to use some of om stash! I love the owl paper and it has been in my bag of scraps for some time. Nice to get it on a LO!

Sugarland released a new song (Maybe it is just new to me) and I heard it on the radio this week. I fell in love with it right away. In fact, there were a few people I thought could relate to it and shared it. I had to scrap it because it was just to perfect! I have had this picture for a few years and knew it worked! I also have a slew of thickers that I would like to get rid of. Once the “e”s are gone I have a hard time using up all the thickers in the package. In fact, I would like to work through all my thickers and just go to stamping titles because I hate having left over alphas. So, I used my thickers to make the PP on the LO. Anyways, here is my LO:

I made all the flowers too. I had purchased this crinkle type paper from SU! awhile ago. Like usual, my eyes were bigger than my need and I bought way to much of it AND I really am not the crazy about it. I pulled out my silver roll and made these flowers the same way I make the fabric ones. I then glimmer misted them each a different color, added a center, bling and leaves. I LOVE them now šŸ™‚

Here is the close up of my paper I made with thickers. Basically all I did was cover a white 12 by 12 cardstock in thickers, painted them black, and used Glimmer Mist Chalkboard mist in charcoal.

I did this LO about a little tradition that the kids and I have. Basically, I don’t like balloons in the car and we came up with a way to get rid of them before we get in the car and that is what this LO is about. There really are two balloons in the sky, but you really can’t see them. The picture is not the main focus of the LO, but the journaling is:

Thanks for looking šŸ™‚

  1. you've been busy! Totally lovin those flowers! I am prob the only person that hasn't jumped on the “make a flower” bandwagon… I know there are tons of great tutorials out there for flowers, but it is so fast and easy to buy them. Course, I'll never use up my stash like that!


  2. Great layouts Betsie – especially love how you used your left over thickers. Do you know that Jillibean Soup makes a science line of paper and embellies called Atomic soup? I got me some of that and ***love it***. Love the story behind the balloon layout too.
