Bird id the word "Discover" , Glitz February Challenge and OUAS e

Hello everyone!!  I will show you two pages that I made for some challenges.  I made my first page like DT work for Bird is the Word and the new word is "Discover"...you can use this word like the tittle or like part of your journaling for the challenge.  You can see how the DT used the word in their Beautiful projects...check HERE.
I also combined this page with the Glitz February Challenge that consists of making a page/card with  beautiful palette colors.
This time I played with a boy page.  I found this lovely picture when Alexander had one year and he loved to play  in the shelves, inside the kitchen gabinets or under the bed..he was discovering all the imaginables places at home.

I used the Dreamer collection, I cut some cards and used it like embellishments and the transparency for the tittle...all products are for Glitz.

The Color Palette...

You can use this lovely sketch by Mary Thomas for the BITW challenge.

Journalling criteria/theme: HOLIDAYS/VACATION 
Have you printed out all those photos from your last holiday/vacation or most favourite holiday/vacation? We would LOVE to see them and hear all about it. With the theme of holidays/vacation for this challenge, we would love to hear about: your favourite holiday/vacation of all time or a favourite place you would LOVE to take a holiday in . Or how about the last holiday/vacation you went to?  Maybe you have not travelled yet? Then tell us about your DREAM HOLIDAY /VACATION destination.

                                                                   My page...

I asked the kids which are their favorite vacation and they picked this one and my girl Paola wrote the journaling.  For them, this was a special vacations because we traveled with their cousins and auntie. We rented a house for all of us for one week and a half in Orlando, Florida.  We visited their favorites parks and attractions...
These kids had a wonderful time all together.

I used the Crate Paper Heart collection.  Prima flower.

Thanks for all the love.

  1. OMG! These layouts are show stopping gorgeous!!! I love your paper distressing technique...the way you fold, crumple and wrinkle it! It adds such tremendous texture! That top layout is the sweetest thing. I love that precious photo, the color scheme and all the glitz embellishments. Perfection!

  2. Such a beautiful page! Love all the layers and curled paper.

  3. Love Love LOVE your Layouts Marilyn.......
    Both are FULL with AWESOMENESS!!! ♥♥

  4. Simply Stunning layouts... love them both... I love the 1st one...especially the photo.... hugs..xoxo

  5. Hi Marilyn!! Wow these are great pieces of art, my friend!! I really love your layouts, and the first one is my favorite :) You did so well using the color palette. Hope you are doing good there, dear! Take care.


  6. Gosh Marilyn - FABULOUS!!!! Love your creations. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful work with us at Once Upon A...Sketcg

  7. These are GORGEOUS!!! Both are FAB, the colours are soo yummy! Hope you are having a great week xoxo

  8. I love little Alexander's photo! Priceless!

  9. Hola Marilyn! So glad I swung by to see TWO great projects that have inspired me today. I LOVE that you make the pages shabby without adding a lot of dark inking to make them look "old"- the bright color palettes you use and all the detail you can squeeze into each page without making it crowded is amazing. I also wanted to let you know I would love to visit more often but the music you play is GREAT (I actually downloaded a few tracks you had here because I loved them that much) but it slows down my computer. This comment has taken a few minutes to write up because of it. I have an older computer with a lot of photos that slow down my hard drive so it's actually my fault but I just wanted to give you some feedback- I hope that's ok. I've seen some people use players where you can choose to turn it on when you visit the site- maybe this could help people like me with slow ancient computers? Thanks for visiting my blog today- I really appreciate your comments- I'm learning a lot from you. :)

  10. Hola Marilyn! Chica, te botaste con estos layouts, ambos estan brutales! La foto de tu hijo es muy tierna, me recuerda mis ninos tambien! Buena suerte con el challenge, me encanta el diseno de tu primera pagina y los colores de la segunda, muy buen trabajo!

  11. Marilyn, I love your style and these pages are simply amazing!! Love the braided jute inside your circle and your distressed, curled edges!! Thanks for working out with us at ScrapFIT! ~ Blessings


  12. So sorry you are still not up and about! take your time to recover fully - I'm sure you need the rest!! Your layouts are as absolutely gorgeous as ever and sure your name will be up in lights on the Glitz blog with that one!!

Amazing pages both of them but my fave has to be the first one - it just stole my heart the sec I set my eyes on it! adoooore the scrunching and the whimsical cuteness of all the layers and details. The colours are totally yummie too. Happy happy and sooo pretty, that's the second page. The pleated twine that goes around the photo, the fussy cutting, the layers. Beautiful work!! Mwah!
