I want to say a big Thank You to Susan over at SRM Stickers, for the fun prize package I received.
I got creating right away, sprucing up two layouts with some great clear SRM stickers:

These sticker sentiments and stitched borders were perfect to finish off this use-my-stash layout, using a hoarded Studio Calico kit, teehee.  I so love how the stickers look here, and am so happy to finally have used some SC kit favorites I was having a hard time parting with!

Up next, a Chic Tags Sunday Challenge layout, again finished off with some SRM:

The SRM stickers look so great against the white photo mat.
For the mist challenge, I created some tone-on-tone stripes, accented with white mist streaks and blue mist splatters.

My camera has such a hard time capturing colors in the teal range, so you'll just have to trust that these blues and greens I used don't clash in real life, lol.

One last challenge I was able to finish up post-NSD...a pinterest-inspired challenge over at 2Peas.
I was inspired by Elizabeth Kartchner's layout HERE, and wanted to try my hand at a diecut white cardstock piece, backed with patterned paper.

Yes, I finally broke down and used my favorite papers from Maggie Holmes new gorgeous.

Oh those bows...just love them.  And I love how well the white cardstock looks with the rosebud pattern I chose to cut:

Thanks for stopping by today...and a very Happy Mother's Day weekend to those who are celebrating!
