be happy "Flamingo Scraps"

I rarely scrap a picture of me, but last Christmas Eve we had professional pictures done and this was one of the gems that came out of it.  I love this picture of my husband and I as we are truly this happy together, married for 11 years this last Nov and I miss him so much every day that he is gone in Afghanistan.

I used various punches and layered them to give an ethereal look this to this layout, just really played and had fun with it.

I used a mask, mixture of white paint and Snow writer by Decoart, inks by Prima, and some spray mist (Clam Bake by Tattered Angels) to create this texture on my paper.  The snow writer has a grainy texture so it looks fabulous when it dries.  You can even see a little part of a Heidi Swapp sticker in the top right corner.

For the zipper flower I used the Maya Road zipper trim and used a rolled technique to make it into a flower,  I then placed two Maya Road trinket pins in the center.  I clustered this with some wonderful Prima flowers and a cute little birds nest.

To buy most of these wonderful items please visit Flamingo Scraps.

Reed Family 2012 - acrylic mini "Flamingo Scraps"

Every year I make a little mini album for both sets of grandparents of the kids.  It is a snap shot of the year and i give them as Christmas presents.  This is now the 7th year I have made them, and every year is a bit different, this year I went with an acrylic album by Maya Road.

I used Ranger Alcohol inks to color the acrylic of all the pages.  I then used a stamp with Staz-on ink for the front and back covers.

I added pictures just plainly matted to each coaster, except for the front cover.

For the front cover I added some pretty prima flowers, prima bling colored with teal alcohol inks, and some alpha stickers.

These little albums are too cute and super easy to work with and most of the supplies I used are found at the Flamingo Scraps Store so pop on over and take a look! 

Products Used:
Album - Maya Road

flying high **FROSTED DESIGNS**

This is a picture of me when I was about 11 or 12 out of the beach in south Texas flying a kite.  I just love how happy and free I look.

I created this layout for Frosted Designs for a recipe challenge, so head on over and play along!! 
Use at least 4: rubons, transparency, brads, eyelets, misting/masking, punches, stamping, and sticker.
