Hi!!!  I hope everybody is fine.  My kids are sick and now I'm too!  Grrr...very difficult for me to make a page when I don't feel well, it takes me a long time to be inspired with something.  This week's Color Combo Galore has this lovely striking color palette and this inspirational photo that was my inspiration.  I was focused in those shelves and I used the lid of a white jewelry box like my frame and tie with the twine.
This is my page........
I have this photo from a vacation we did a few years ago and Paola is wearing this shirt that the colors fits perfect with this color palette and at the same time she has this orange tan, lol! she has a very white skin and every time she took a little of sun she looks like a shrimp or a red apple.  If you follow my blog you know that I love w/b photos but this one goes perfect with the colors.
This is my frame that really is a lid of a jewelry box.
I used two Martha Stewart's paper punches for my circles edges.   The pattern papers are from Basic Grey, Karen Foster, and Webster Pages.
These beautiful butterflies are from Kay's shop.
Well my blogger friends thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments, I really appreciated it!
You have until next Wednesday to play in Color Combo Galore go ...HERE
Until next time...Take Care!!!
With Love!

Hello!!! I hope everyone is fine!  I'm so happy because I'm going to take two weeks off from work, yesss! I really need it!  This is a long holiday weekend here, we're celebrating Labor Day this next Monday.  For that reason, I will show you three pages in this post, I'm going on a trip with my family around the island.  This month's theme in Color Combo Galore is all about books and reading.  This week's Designer challenge: Focus on Type-Dictionary or Text type prints and an unusual but lovely color combo, I really love these challenges!!!!
And this was my inspiration..... 
I made this page about my son Alexander when he had 3 1/2 years old.  One day I came to the room and I found him with his daddy glasses and acting like his dad.  I got my camera and took this photo.  
I used Basic Grey papers, Dusty Attic chipboard, CTMH chipboard and papers and American Craft & Bazzil cardstocks.

More details.... 

I rolled the stripes of printed text pattern papers, then I distressed them with Vintage Photo. I painted the wooden sticks.  I tie the rolled stripes with the wooden sticks and made this big mat.
I would like to see what you can create with this 207 CCG, you can see what beauties the Design Team made here....
Go to Color Combo Galore....(HERE)


It's time to show some Salt & Pepper on your layout or card!  This means that black and white are your main colors but you can use only one more color.  I'm making a b/w and coral colors wedding album for my sister- in- law and brother, so this goes perfect for it!  I used the sketch from My Creative Sketches Blog.  This is a new sketch monthly challenge blog, you can see it ....(HERE

I used some tulle, prima flowers, charms, CTMH chipboard, American craft alphas and some stuff from my kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

This is the sketch ....

Karen the owner of Paper Trail store asked us, the Design Team, to make a page or card with a bit of vintage thrown in!  The vintage can be in the papers, in the colors, ephemera, in the photos, etc...   I made this page when my little sister was celebrating her 4th birthday.  My mom had this picture and i'd like to work with it.  I'm the middle one at right side, my sister is the little one at front of mine and we are in the photo with our neighbor Martita.  Lovely memory!!!
I used for this page the lovely line "It's the little things" from Fancy Pants.  Do you love Dusty Attic?...well you can find it at the store!! I used this lovely swirls from Dusty Attic and the Prima flowers all you can find it in....(HERE)  And during this weekend only,  you can buy anything of these products with 15% of discount on your total purchase!!!
