It hit me the other day . . . summer is coming to an end. August is always such a blur getting ready to go back to school, cramming in last minute camping trips, and getting ready for three of my kids August birthdays. We have been trying to do our fair share of summer activities . . . going to Lagoon (our local amusement park), swimming at Cherry Hill, and eating lots of ice cream. 🙂 Yesterday we all visited the dentist and I’m happy to say NO CAVITIES! Yay! Of course we had to celebrate with ice cream treats at Pace’s Dairy Ann. Hehehe!
There’s just a few more days to leave a comment on the post below to enter yourself in the 2011 My Mind’s Eye Birthday Blog Hop! So many of you have popped by already! Thank you for all of your comments! I love to read through them!
I thought I would share with you the rest of the pages I created with the NEW My Mind’s Eye collections for their booth at CHA-Summer. These first two pages were created using the New MISCHIEVOUS Halloween collection. I have to say . . . I am completely diggin’ the blue added with the traditional halloween colors. I also LOVE the fact that this line has a primitive folk art feeling to it! So different from anything else out there! CLICK HERE to see everything in this fun collection.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN – Camryn had been planning on being Jasmine from Aladdin for a really long time and completely took on the role while wearing her costume. Hehehe! I love that you can tell how much she loved her costume by her pose. 😀
How cute are these chipboard stickers?! Sorry about the twine bow being wacko. I was in a hurry to get these out the door for CHA and didn’t pay close attention while I was photographing. *blush*
TRICK OR TREAT – Last year, Owen was a Star Wars Pilot for Halloween. I love how his orange costume pops off the page against the muted colors of the Mischievous collection! The distressed look of this collection lends itself very well to masculine pages.
I added Glossy Accents to the pumpkin’s eyes and stitching to their mouths for a bit more dimension. 🙂
PICKING PUMPKINS – Alright all you cardmakers & Cricut users . . . have you seen the NEW Six by Six paper pads by My Mind’s Eye?!!! You are going to FLIP! Soooo many cute papers! And the cool thing about them is that these are ALL NEW patterns. You can only find these patterns in the Six by Six collection! CLICK HERE to check them all out! You are going to want to collect them all! But don’t think you have to limit yourself to cards and accents. Here is a layout I created using the papers from the ALL SPICE and AWAY WE GO paper pads.
The flocked journaling spot is from the Lush 2 collection and the green flocked letters and gray rhinestones are from the Lush collection. The orange letters were cut using my Cricut machine and the Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art Cartridge. The pumpkins were cut using the Disney Pooh & Friends cartridge (page 44). I used My Mind’s Eye Stella & Rose buttons, Martha Stewart Glitter, and Karen Foster Designs Scrapper’s Floss to accent them.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for popping in!
