Rainbow Painter

colorful mixed media scrapbook page layout with heat embossed chipboard, paint splatters, 7 Dots, Creative Embellishments You Color My World, sequins, stenciling, in turquoise, fuschia, pale blue, and purple

Hi all! I was so in love with this month's kit from International Scrapbook Garden. If you caught my last two layouts (here and here), you know how versatile the goodies in the Colorburst kit are. I chose more muted tones for the last two layouts to satisfy my own scrapping mood, but I wanted to do something with the more colorful elements in the kit. The Creative Embellishments chipboard title "Color My World" was perfect, and of course perfect for a picture of my own little rainbow maker, the painter of the colors in my world.











Have a wonderful weekend!

My Pie for CSI

Hi all, and Happy Easter {and April Fool's Day}! I can't believe I haven't posted in almost a month! Sometimes you just lose your mojo. I've been transferring my the scrap area from our basement to our extra bedroom, so it's hard to find the mojo to create when your space is in limbo. Anyway, the transfer is nearly complete, just in time for the challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Join us for a chance at some AMAZING prizes! Here's a look at this month's case file.


As you can see the theme is llamas. I was so excited to see this since we recently house sat a llama and alpaca farm! And of course, I took lots of pictures of Zae as he frolicked with the animals. I happily scrolled through my photo library...and I could not find them. I put it aside and came back to it again, sure I must have overlooked something. Nothing!!! I was so frustrated, and as the reveal was coming, I instead went went with a cat theme.
