Using Different Patterned Papers with Pebbles, Inc.

I did this lo for one of our "Technique Tips" on the Pebbles, Inc. blog.  It was actually for this past Friday.  Since I was away for Thanksgiving, I didn't have a chance to post it until today, but the post is still up on the blog  I had a lot of fun doing this lo,  I think I used every collection that was sent to me in my design kit from Pebbles, Inc.  You can see that they don't really "go together", but the way I've made the flower as sort of a patch-work flower it "does go together".  Check out the blog for further ideas by some of the other dt members.

Twisted Sketches Sketch No. 24 Is Up!!

I love October Afternoon's papers!!  "Report Card" is no acception!  I think this line is just precious!  For this weeks sketch we had to use "distressing" and "three photos".  The old-time feel to these papers just lend themselves to distressing, don't you think?

Altered House using Nikki Sivils "North Pole Nights"

I had a devil of a time taking a photo of this! There were too many shadows, it was blurry, my tree wouldn't stand up.... I have had this done for several days now, and today was the day to finally get a decent photo! However, it was fun to make. I love these papers from Nikki's Christmas line. I especially love the little elf. Isn't he just the cutest?

A lo using Nikki Sivils "North Pole Nights"

This is my hubby "modeling" his new boots from last Christmas. If you have seen lo's of him in the past, you usually know that he always acting goofy. I guess that is one of the reasons I love him! Everything on the lo is part of the Nikki Sivils "North Pole Nights" collection - minus the goofy pics and letters. To see what other adorable products she carries, check out her website here Thanks for looking!! Have a great weekend!!

Some Pebble's Inc. for ya!

I hardly ever do these clean line lo's or this size for that matter. However, I decided I would go for it. I actually love how it turned out. More so, I guess because I adore this photo of Hayden. I used Pebble's Inc. Downtown papers for this lo.
