3 LOs and a technique to share

I have been trying really hard to reduce the number of studio calico boxes that are stacked up in my quest bedroom...good thing I don't have anyone coming for a visit!! It seems like the more LOs I make, the more pp I have is that possible?? I have done 3 LOs so far this let me share!

smile...using the rest of that sass sun paper that I think I could use 100 sheets of and the cute smile tag that amy tangerine made for the june SC kit!

Mandolas...using my paper moon kit from sc and the 7/3 sunday sketch

and a little close up...I used some maya mist and some OA sprinklers on this and love the effect!!

and finally, the weekly challenge to scrap something that makes you laugh...and lifting this awesome LO by Vee Jennings...and using my favorite SC kit ever...Lawn Party...and using up my favorite pp from that kit too!!

and that leads into my technique...I misted with Mr. Huey lunchtray and flicked some white paint on the seemed to need a little something more, so I used some pink OA sprinklers on it...and I really didn't like the I took my trusty zig pen and colored over the pink splats so now they look simple and easy!!

Thanks for stopping by! mwah!

happy july!!

wow! july already? I'm really not ready for summer to be almost half way over...the only salvation is a trip I have planned later on this month to meet up with some of my girls in Boston...I am so excited!!

but in the meantime, I am trying to purge.purge.purge...I have been an ebay junkie for the past few weeks...and have earned enough money to pay for my trip to that! but it is a ton of work...but I am getting money for stuff that I would just be giving away...and it is getting it out of my house so I'm going to put it in the thumbs up category.

I have been able to produce a couple of LOs from my June Studio Calico kit paper moon...had great expectations that I would be able to finish up that kit before my july kit appeared...but it arrived today and I still have a substantial amount of paper moon left...I will just keep on working at it and maybe by the end of the weekend it will be a goner!

summertime...for a song lyric and 3+ pp challenge at studio calico
