Aaannd, we're back.

Ok, so I *might* have disappeared for quite some weeks...life sure does get difficult, stressful, colorful sometimes, doesn't it? And of course, when that happens, blogging seems to go by the wayside. Sooo...for anyone who may still be around, lol, how about some photos, hey?!

The first thing I'm really dying to do is share some of my first projects for Little Black Dress Kit Club!
Here's what I created with the May 2012 kit:


I just LOVE the tilted design of this MME paper, as well as these new paintable alphabets from Heidi Swapp...I created a sketch to go along with this layout as well:



































To play along & to see what the other designers did with this sketch, check out the Little Black Dress blog post HERE.

For all the little circular accents from the sketch, I combined some confetti & some cut-out floral circles, along with an eclectic mix of buttons from the LBD kit:


The Heidi Swapp rub-ons layered well over the Prima ticket...and a tip on the resist alphabets:  I got the boldest results by using a paint-based product rather than a more translucent spray ink.  On this page, I used the Miss Mary Mack Sprinkler from October Afternoon...definitely my favorite ink color from this past year's release!


My 2nd layout for LBD May is all about Pinterest fun:



































Thought I'd create a layout documenting the things I've actually DONE from Pinterest, lol...had fun rainbow-inking the alphabet, and adding the great internet-friendly Heidi Swapp stickers:








































































Last up for now, a quick little card...love the sweet little Crate Paper image here:
