Well I did both(that means there's a sneek peek)

Yep, before I let myself start "Change of Heart" I went upstairs and did my 1st LO using the fab "Sunny Days" July kit from Coordinates Collections. Then I proceeded to start reading the book. Before I knew it, it was midnight! (Told you once I picked it up....)


So anyway that's what I did tonight too. I made dinner for the kids then after we finished eatting and I cleaned up I went up to scrap a bit. I already had an idea for my DT project at Scrapbook Cafe. It was a pretty simple design scheme and I was uninterupted (hard to believe) so I finished that. Now after this post and a little surfingthe net I settle down for a few hours with my book. Life is GOOD!

Now for you my friends.....

Here's a little sneek of the "Sunny Days" kit:




and here's a look at what I whipped up for my DT project at the Scrapbook Cafe.



We were to use some of the Yummy Doodlebug "Crushed Velvet" papers for this months project.

I took a sheet of the "cupcake" & "lavendar" papers.

This picture really doesn't do it justice...because that white photo mat is actually a white piece of Doodlebug "sugar coated" paper. It didn't scan very well and since it's now dark here I couldn't go outside to try for better pictures. You'll have to trust me when I say it's got a nice sparkle to it. :wink: Added along the bottom of the scallop are small pink Kaiser rhinestones & another Kaiser rhinestone is added to the center of the Prima flower.
The only thing on this layout not from the Cafe are the Doodlebug "Loopy Lou's". Papers & rhinestones are currently available ...not sure about the Primas or the Fancy Pants chipboard.

You may remember the picture... I posted it a couple of weeks ago. The one I found on my camera...proudly taken by the owner of those new crocs. Yeah, I know the "croc" thing was a bit over done a while ago, but I had to scrap it anyway. :wink:

Have a nice evening...I'm curling up shortly with a good book!

So now what do I do? I ordered the other kit, because I've been looking for some navy blue for a while now... Do I need Sunny Days, too?

With the velvet ... what did you use for the purple shapes? Punches? Or just tracing and scissors? I finally broke down and ordered some the other day.
