More Layouts

Happy Thursday everyone!
Ok so I am one day late, sorry ladies my laptop was tied up by my 14 year old yesterday.  So I added some great layouts this week that I actual really enjoy making.  2 are from when I was in Disney Land and the other is of my daughter Jayde. (the laptop thief)
I hope you enjoy!

Layout 18: We made sure that we went to poohs thotful spot for Jenn.  I had to admit I got caught up in all the excitement of Disneyland.  I used some Tim Holtz CS and a sheet of Hundred Acre woods paper that I found.  I stitched all along the squares to make a blanket effect.  I doodled around the tag titles with just a regular Black marker. 
Layout #19 Jurassic Park - at Universal studios
Wow this was so fun, I was so happy that I decided to wear my swim top to go to this park.  And yes you see a fanny pack on me!! I know right a fanny pack really?! I hear you all now what were you thinking?  The truth of the matter is that we resisted the fanny pack for days!! But then really we just couldn't do it any more.  And I have to say it was the best $15 I could have spent.  My hands were completely freed up for my camera case which was a big pain in the butt by it's self.  Again I stitched around a few of the lighter elements to add some layers.

Layout #20 Simply Beautiful  - My beautiful 14 year old who stole my computer!
I thought I would throw this one in since she was the computer thief.  These pictures were taken as a goofing around day. within 5 minutes we set up a quick photo shoot and had a blast. 
I created this layout as a third layout for my classes on the WOTG.
The word beautiful all along the outside edge of the layout as a kind of stitched effect.  The flower in the top left corner is stamped twice, I then cut out the centre of one to pop it up.  I then ran my blender pen over top of the ink to give the whole flower a little color.  I finished the flower off by adding mini pearls to the inside of the flower.

Thanks for looking and have a great week!!

Tresa Black layout

 Layout #17 Tresa Black from the blog fabulously artsy.  

     So I was going to post more than one layout, but I decided against that and decided to add just this single layout instead.
     This  was taken last July 2011 at the Disney Land convention. Which by the was was a great time with my friend Jenn.  I was sooooo excited to be able to take a class with this very talented and wonderful woman.  ( These images do enlarge if you click on them.) Ok so I am not too sure what the paper is (really you think I would have used CTMH ) but I wanted something that sparkled.  After all the class was about adding Brazzle Dazzle to your pages!
The blue paper under the main page actual is all sparkles :)

The wings under the crown were embossed with some black embossing powder mixed with sparkles.

I then added her name which was also embossed but as a messy embossing.  I did not bother to clean up the little specks as I wanted it to look a little distressed.  ( I am still thinking of adding so stitching up the base of the letters as well, I will have to let you know if do that).  You can also see there is a shadow just below her name that is because I have popped up that picture so I can add my hidden journaling. 

Thank you for all the inspiration Mrs Artsy! And if you are not already a fan please check out her blog
She has wonderful ideas and tutorials.
