I'd coloured her with this Doodlebug paper in mind and I'm very pleased with how it all turned out. I've also used Basic Gray and Pink Passion cardstock by SU!, the grey embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, small Prima flowers, big flower from Poppicrafts and ribbon from Ribbon Oasis. Added a bit of bling to the flower centres, doodled around the image and also inked with Basic Black round all the edges.
I'm enjoying an uncharacteristically quiet evening tonight :) Youngest daughter has been in bed for some time, and the older two are at the Sports Centre with hubby playing table tennis. All hell will break loose when they return in a little while, but I shall enjoy until then! Have a good weekend, everybody, thanks for stopping by!

Images Copyright 1990-2009 Stampin’ Up! ®
Stamp Sets: Live Your Dream, Occasional Greetings
Colours: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
Other: distressing tool, Stampin' Write markers (soft subtles), whisper white grosgrain ribbon, buttons (from stash)
Hope you like, thanks for stopping by!
This uses a Stampin' Up! image from "Summer by the Sea" which has been watercoloured, SU! sentiment, various cardstock and SEI "Winnies Walls" paper, plus a punched flower with gem centre.
Papers are Doodlebug and Costco pack, flowers are from Poppicrafts, ribbon from Ribbon Oasis, buttons and brads from stash. The title was cut with Sizzlets round-a-bout alphabet, and there is a journaling tag behind the right photo. I've enjoyed putting this together, I'm starting to find it easier to match different papers :) I love that it's so bright, it's a lot brighter in real life!
I have made another layout, but have not had a chance to photograph it since hubby took my camera away on his trip :( And I might have bought a few new Sugar Nellie stamps that were so irresistibly cute, have a couple of them coloured, so I'm hoping to make a couple more cards this weekend and have something more to blog about very soon.
Have a good weekend everybody, thanks for looking :)

This second one I made "just because" - I had to have a play with this cute little stamp :)
I think the image is called "Henry celebrating mouse", again from Whiff of Joy, again, watercoloured and stickled, cut out with nesties. Papers again are from that notorious Costco pack (will it ever run out?), ribbon from Ribbon Oasis, but I'm not sure where the various flowers and brads came from. Well, I had lots of fun doing these, and I'm starting to think I'm really getting back into the swing of things
Hope you're all having a great Sunday, thanks for stopping by!
