Going in Circles at About a Boy

The mid-month challenge is out at About a Boy and it is my debut on the design team!  This month's challenge is to create a page using circles.

I started my page with card stock, Stamper's Anonymous "Bitty Grunge" stamps and Distress Paint in Tarnished Brass and Antiqued Bronze.  I had taken a picture of my son blowing a bubble with gum, and I changed the bubble into a balloon.  I made copies of the hot air balloons.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look!

Playing with Frog Dog

I am trying out a new kit by Frog Dog.  It's all mixed media.  I finally got my first little project finished.  I made a hanging piece out of two mini canvases and they are attached by the word "play."  This photo was taken with the piece hanging on my white board.  I wanted to show how the canvases were attached.

Punky Scraps June Challenge

June's challenge at Punky Scraps makes me think of all the fun things that are held in the summer months.  I love going to fairs, carnivals, amusement parks and flea markets.  I'm glad that I live in a place with all 4 seasons.  The different weather makes every season special.

Here are the mood board and the sketch for this month's challenge:

Must Be This Tall To Ride

I  hope that my take on this month's challenge makes you want to go to a fair and ride all of the rides and eat food on a stick.  

I do have to let you know that my son is tall enough now to go on all of the rides.  He thought that I was saying that he was short in this LO.

Smile! June Round Robin at Scraps of Darkness

Today's post is brought to you by the letter "S" for Scraps of Darkness!  I completed this LO for the June Round Robin.  I had to go first, so I tried to come up with my own design.  I'm sure I've lifted it from someone, but I wouldn't know who at this point, so if someone thinks I copied them, it was an accident.  I tried to makeup this LO with my own brain.

I used beads on this LO, which is something I don't do very often. 

Below, I painted over some of the beads.

Off The Page Project

I was planning on giving this to my mom for Mother's Day, but my daughter stole it first.  This is a 6" tin that I pretttied up with some birds, flowers, resin and a piece of chipboard.  Thanks for looking!
