Check out this Drink Ware by Traditions Studio!

I got a box of fun yummy goodies from Traditions Studios. I am one lucky girl when I get these fun boxes ...that means it is time to play! I seriously love this 16 oz. Tumbler with a Straw...and used it to make my own glass that will follow me from soccer game to soccer game.

This is so totally me!

I just love all the great details...don't you love how the Want2Scrap 72 Count Turquois Bling brightens it up.

Now since I am not the only one that needs to drink water at the games...I made this one for Nick! He got the 15 oz. Stainless Steel Water Bottle.

These would make great Mother's and Father's Day gifts as well, don't you think?

Want2Scrap Tree Canvas Using the Scarlet Lime Mixed Media Kit

Yes, it is that time again...Time to get your hands messy! Making canvases is one of my new favorite things to do. It makes me feel like an artist each time I create one. It also lets me indulge myself in my love of bright and vivid color. I used the  Scarlet Lime Mixed Media Kit.

This canvas is was a ton of fun and it amazes my how I can actually create an image from just a few hand cut triangles. My trees were perfectly frames by the Silver Rhinestones Nestabling Pennants. What a fun  and different way to use them. 

The Brown Nestabling Circle was also the perfect way to highlight the sun. I also used four different color of 72 Count Bling...they make a perfect center for each flower.

And just one more so you can see some of the fun details in this...

I hope you are inspired to dig in and get you fingers messy too. It is really very freeing to create and not worry about making mistakes.  In the mixed media world mistakes tend to make the best art!

Mimi Leinbach: March Simple Layouts...Back to my Roots

I love that I am trying new things creatively...slowly making my way in the world of mixed media. Digging in and getting messy but every now and again you need to visit your roots. I did that this month with the March Frugal Fab Kit at Scarlet Lime. I don't do nearly the amount of layouts I used to do but it was really nice to return to my roots.

I dug into some of my pictures and found this picture of a family ski trip. The colors were perfect for this kit.
