Color Combos Galore 189 is Live!

Hey all!!  I did a girlie layout!!  Wow, it has been so long since I have done a layout with so many flowers.  It was a lot of fun.  I need to pull those flowers out more.  I keep buying them, so I guess I should use them, right?!  Well, they did it to me "again" - yep, "another" muted color combo!  Hee,hee this week I didn't mind though.  Anywho.... here is my layout this week for Color Combos Galore.  Hope you like!

My Mind's Eye Blog Challenge 22: Layout Challenge

Although I absolutely love their products and have TONS of it, I have never played the challenge.  Thanks to my friend Robbie, who told me she like to try to participate, I thought maybe I should give it a go as well.  It doesn't hurt that Anam does such great sketches.  I was on Twisted Sketches for so long, and I adore her sketches.  This is another great one!  Anyway, I used some of my new Stella Rose - man, I love "all" of those lines!

Here is my take on this month's amazing sketch!

If you are interested in playing along, you have one more day!  If not, then check out all the other amazing entries over at the My Mind's Eye Blog.

This Used To Be A Pool Noodle - Bad Girl!!

Ok, so I let my sweet girl outside for a few hours yesterday while I went to the grocery store and to run a few other errands.  Last night, my hubby says lets go sit outside since it is so nice.  Next thing - I hear him laughing.  I go to the door and look outside.  There is blue styrofoam all over the yard, and I mean ALL OVER the yard.  Tiny little blue specs everywhere!  How can one dog do so much damage in such a short amount of time?!  BAD GIRL!!  The photo is just a sample of what is left of our pool noodle.  She is just lucky we love her so much.

Color Combos Galore 187 is Live!

This week the girls are rockin the Nikki Sivils paper collection It's Raining It's Pouring. Wow!!  I am so embarrassed!  I didn't put a lot of effort into mine, but I'm thinking I should have because the girls really made me look bad this week.  They all did such fabulous jobs with Nikki's papers!! I absolutely love what they all did with it!  If you would like to check it out or play along, just check out the Color Combos Galore challenge site.  The designer challenge is to use a wet medium like misting, paint....  Also, Nikki will be providing the prize for each week's winner for the month of April. Anyway, here is my layout.  This our little family member KP.  Isn't she just adorable!  Thanks Cookie and Trent for letting me use this precious photo.

Color Combos Galore 186 is Live!

Well, it muted colors again, sort of, except for the teal. You know how much I "love" them muted colors (not), lol, but I do them anyway. I think they just like to torture me over there, or I guess it might be that they are giving me a "challenge". I guess that is why they call it a challenge blog, right? Well, if you are up for it swing by Color Combos Galore and try it for yourself! Here is my layout for this week:

Also, check in next week!  We are featuring papers from Nikki Sivils, and she will be providing the prizes all month long.  I'll also post the girls work from Color Combos Galore over at Nikki's blog.  I can't wait to see what they do with Nikki's adorable papers!
