Pebbles, Marks Paper Company and a RAK Winner!

I had fun this month playing with some my favorite Pebbles AC and Marks Paper Company goodies. I also challenged myself to dig into some of my stash. I used some rub-ons, overlays, and brads that I have had for quite a while, felt good to use some "oldies but goodies".

I have been waiting for the right layout to use this photo with and here it is. One day Nick picked up a pair of his cousin's sunglasses and put them on. He made this cool, tough face and of course I clicked away. Emeline Seet's challenge this month was to do a layout in our typical style. I am definitely drawn to lots of color and clean strait lines. This layout is one of my new favorites!

I tried to make the layout as "cool" as my son looked. I used a glass to stamp the paint circles and then cut circles to fit into them...a few embellishment...layout complete!

For this next layout I went the opposite of my typical style and distressed quite a bit. Lisa Warren challenged us to use a brown, green, orange, and yellow color scheme. Perfectly fall colors...aren't they?

A few details...

Stacy Marks the owner and creator of all Marks Paper Company goodness is now also a fabulous digi designer at 2 Peas! Big Congrats Stacy! She has posted some amazing kits so be sure to check them out!

Look at this fun new Text Me kit! I am so not a digi girl...but I am hybrid if I find the right kit...and this is the right kit!

I made this layout with a picture of my brother. I don't get to see him as much as I like but I would do anything for him...

I also added some fab pearls from Want2Scrap...these are perfect to add a little detail to your projects!

Don't you love that font that comes with the kit?

Stacy also has another kit available...Hugs & Kisses. I know this was meant to be a Valentines kit...but I loved the papers for Mother's Day!

Last but not least...the winner of the RAK is...tiffanyfarhner ...congrats Tiffany...email your addy to me at mleinbac@verizon.com. I will get you the RAK you saw plus a few more goodies in the mail this week!

Don't fret if you did not win the RAK...I will be doing another one in just a few week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
