One cute baby, 2 Angels and some Flowers and Cards

Goooood Friday : )
Jess here

I hope everyone has had a marvellous week.....and here's to a even more marvellous weekend!
I am happy to announce.....MY MOJO IS BACK!!! wooohoooo!!! For the better (or worse) part of 6ish months I have just had a total creative burnout, I think I was so daunted by how awesomely creative everyone is and really struggled to be happy with and understand my "style". Also we had soooooo much happening last year in this house, getting sick all the time, things breaking down.....starting up my wee business, that I really struggled with trying to "fit" it all in. So I took a little break, a few thousand deep breathes, grew happy with my "style"......and well gained back the mojo. Thanks Tracy (and everyone else) for being patient!!!
Ok on to SCRAPPING.....
my2angels (once again) has sent me some new papers to play with......Helloooooooo Basic Grey - Kissing Booth.......
I am really digging this range.....It's not often I get to use pink & be all girly : )
As well as the Kissing Booth, I have also added some Sassafras Lass Foldies & Starters paper as well as Some yummy Hambly Screen Prints - Birds on Wire overlay
I created the background by machine stitching the backside of the "kiss" paper (which I trimmed to 11 x 11) to Kraft Cardstock. I then took the top of my Paint Dabber - Snow Cap White and tipped some paint out, which I spread onto my page with an old credit card. I then sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmermist - Turquoise Blue over a Crafters Workshop - Tile Texture template.
I toned down the colour by going over the whole background with Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Picket Fence. Lastly I splattered Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze - Paradise Pink randomly over the background.
How yummy are the Kraft Tags!! I machine stitched around the tag then swiped the edges with my Paint Dabber - Snow cap White. Oh and OF COURSE I once again chopped up a White Scalloped Edge Felt Frame to layer under my photo.
I HEART Layering : ) 
Layered with the foldies are a Large White Rose, Hot Pink 2cm Rose, White Lilly, Aqua Blue Pearls
Heart Pin and my FAVE charm ever.....Coloured Daisy Charm
Can you see the Silver Rhinestone Self Adhesive Square that I've layered? I've lightly swiped over it with my Paint Dabber - Snow Cap White.
More Foldies with a Silver Brass Round Filigree which I have swiped over with my Paint Dabber - Snow Cap white, a CUTE AS CAN BE Black and White Spot Acrylic Button, more Aqua Blue Pearls and a Pink Rose.
And there ye have pink and girly layout : ) Isn't me niece Lilly the CUTEST lil munchkin ever!
Love and Peace xox

Hi from Lisa

Love love love this photo of the gorgeous Tracy angel herself.... I was lucky enough to spend the day with Tracy playing around and enjoying each others company.  She is quite the character you know... giggle...

In this layout I have used the lovely Simple Stories paper.  I have blinged up the letter "F" in friends using some Ranger Distress Embossing Powder in the Broken China..  With this I then used the heat gun to emboss it.    Above the “I” I have used the cute as little wee apple charm.  Love these.

I have then used the lovely Scrapware Chipboard Flourish Love Hearts .  I have inked it up with Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop Brown  which come up nice then added just a sprinkle of Diamond Dust  in the corners on the flourish.  

I love clusters of Tracys flowers and charms as they give me a real vintage feel.  I have sprayed the
Stemmed Star Flowers Pure White  with Glimmer Mist.  I have put in a few little Mixed Green Roses Pack .  Have you checked out the little Little Girl Silver Charm .  These are a must to go on every girly page I am thinking… J   I have added one of Tracys gorgeous Antique Bronze Timepiece .  Perfect for the vintage page.  And lastly in this beautiful cluster is a cute button from this range Floral Wooden Buttons #2  and Resin Cabochons Flowers Cream.

So go and check out all the gorgeous bits and pieces I have used from Tracys stash.. They are inexpensive and beautiful and just make the page!!!

Be back shortly with some Bo Bunny papers I am going to play with right now.

And finally,

A couple of cards with some My2Angels beauties:

Remember the ribbon rosettes?  I had one left from the tutorial a while back. Here's one with some high heels charms, resin flowerskeleton leaves and stamens:

Find my tutorial here!

And how easy is it to make a simple paper flower look great with just a large rhinestone and some leaf charms:

None of these project were made with more than 1/4 of a piece of paper at the most. So now there really isn't much of an excuse to have so many scraps anymore. Hmmm, does anyone have a few hours to donate to my day?
