The first LO is of me and my momma shopping in Cabo.....
We have so much fun walking around and buying jewelry from the local people who are selling it. My mom is a master at this! She gets them talking and laughing and before you know it, they will sell her anything she wants at the price she picks! It's amazing!
The sketch is from Scraptacular
For this LO I used papers from Me and My Big Ideas. I knew I would be able to get it done faster if I used papers all from the same stack... no need to go searching that way! I also knew I would not have time to make my own embellishments. Since I didn't already have flowers that I liked, I decided to go with one of the papers from the stack. I fussy cut the flowers out, inked the edges and pop dotted the layers to create the embellishments for the page....
I thought they added a nice bright embellishment that perfectly coordinated with the paper!!
I also completed this LO of my sweet little girl when she was in kindergarten!
I also used the pleating technique that Ruth taught us at Frosted Designs this week! You can find the tutorial HERE!
The sketch is from the lovely ladies at Stuck On U Sketches! I haven't had a chance to play along for a few weeks so I was happy to get one done for their challenge this week!
Once again, I used a lot of premade embellies. The flowers are Prima and Flora Doodle (I love that these already have the gems in the centers for me! Saves me even more time!) The butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch and the brads are from Sassafras! I also did the writing myself instead of printing and cutting things from the computer or using rub ons.... saved more time!
The banner was quick and easy. The stickers are from Echo Park and the triangles only took a minute to cut from a scrap piece of paper!
I just couldn't resist including this close up of my little darling! I am not sure what I like better, her big baby blues or the freckles!! Boy do they grow up quickly!
Thanks for stopping by to visit today! Hopefully I have inspired you to try a few quick LOs! Personally, I like the way they turned out and it was really nice for me to just glue something down and commit to it instead of rearranging over and over!! Have a great week and I will be back Thursday with a new LO and challenge!
