August Blog Hop

First line of business- It's my Mom's birthday so we are celebrating in Yosemite. Happy Birthday Mom! Hope you spend hours at the river.

Heather from Everything Scrapp'n is so wonderful, she's brought back some prizes from CHA for another blog hop. It starts here! Then go to everyone's blog and then leave a comment at the ES blog for a chance to win a prize. I have some more to share from the Pink Paislee Fetching line.

I think this is one of my most favorite layouts I've done recently. I love this line by Pink Paislee. I had so much fun getting messy with this page. I painted over the paper with gesso, then embossed with American Crafts Zing embossing powder. And this is where I got really crazy ;). I splattered brown water color across the whole page. I've seen Michelle Clement do this a million times and I finally got up the courage to try it on a page of mine! I'm thinking about doing a mini tutorial on embossing. Would any of you be interested in that?
And a close up of the embossing and stickled chipboard:
Products used: Pink Paislee Fetching Rugged paper, Spirited paper, chipboard shapes, sticker book, Stickles-Aqua, American Crafts Thickers Lullaby-Aqua, Pink Paislee rub ons, sheet music stamp (unknown company), Staz On Brown ink, Zig pen-brown.

I don't scrap 6x12 pages very often so I thought a photo booth strip would be perfect for that size. I had some left over scraps and wanted to use them for these photos that Dan & I took last summer. Can you believe we've been dating for 4.5 years and we hadn't take photo booth strip pictures until just last summer?
And another close up:
Fetching Confident paper, Rugged paper, Pink Paislee Vintage Moon Full Moon paper, Fetching sticker book, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop, Jenni Bowlin journaling card, Sassafrass Lass Whimsy Woodland chipboard, American Crafts rhinestone brads, Scenice Route clear Camera stamps, Staz On Brown ink, Hero Arts alphas lower case basic font.

Alright, now that you've seen my recent creations, head on over to the other girls blogs and then to the Everything Scrapp'n blog for a chance to win some awesome prizes.
