GCD Studios Technique, a Giveaway, The World Cup, and a Layout!

This month Heidi challenged us to create a layout with these fabulous pictures as inspiration. I love all the different patterns of paper GCD Studios has with beautiful blues in them... these colors also work perfectly with Father's Day in June.



This is one of my favorite photos of my husband. I used this layout as a way to show him what a great Dad I think he is to our boys.



I also added a fun technique using the Chip Art Collection. Each time I use it I love it more.



For this letter D... I first used the Chip Art tools to stamp the image. Then I painted it with metallic blue paint. I love the shimmer it adds. I finally added just a dot of liquid adhesive to the center of each stamped image and sprinkled micro beans onto it. It has a great polka dot effect, not to mention lots of fun detail.

Check out the GCD Studios Blog they are doing a giveaway using the chipboard letters I used!

I sat down to scrap for the first time last night and scrapped for me...I had just bought some fun goodies and I wanted to play away. I created this layout just for fun...



Here are a few details...



I don't know if everyone knows this but being a BIG soccer family the next 6 weeks will be all about the World Cup!!!! We will be cheering on TEAM USA in a very big way! Today is their first game against England...GO TEAM USA!



Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great one!

Thanks to a relatively week group, I imagine the team USA will indeed advance out of the group, much beyond that, don't nobody hold their breath. LOL, JV against Pro teams after all. And no, I don't believe in miracles, LOL!!!!!!!!

Your pages are always lovely :) And it's AWFULLY nice to find someone in the scrappy world who cares about the World Cup :)
