New Project in the works....

From my monthly Swirlydoos kit "Wistful Blues" the last two months I received a Prima Marketing wooden box with little adorable fairies and resin items - so I took them out and started decorating the 4 little inserts.  I also used my Prima Marketing paper Princess Collection Ava, BlueFern's Ombre's Dreams - Joyce & Ginger papers, wire mess that I wrapped the little flowers around, Prima flowers of course and the little Prima Angle from the kit.  I just altered items for some reason - I guess it gives me some boundaries of what can fit in a little box instead of a blank piece of paper that is limitless!  It restricts me to only using some of my stash!!

Boxycharm just arrived today

Today I came home to one Christmas present - yes I start Christmas shopping in August as we have way to many kids to buy for and a little here and there helps instead of one big dip in the savings!!  My Boxycharm arrived today as well.  The theme is Beach Babe - In the fab box was Enter Pronoun BLOWTORCH bronzer - this is a bronzer that brushes onto the skin in water-resistant powder, creating a matte, natural sun-kissed appearance. Tarina Tarantino conditioning lip sheen which I love - all Tarina products - lightweight lipsheen provides color payoff that is buildable, leaving your lips hydrated and happy. ModelCo CHEEK and Lips tint rosy red - lightweight, dual purpose cheek and lip tint that delivers a natural, rosy glow. Morphe Brushes Powder Brush - Morphe powder brush bristles are soft and silky and great for applying the right amount of powder for a flawless finish. OFRA cosmetics lip liner - water resistant pencil suitable for the most sensitive eye and lip areas.  Created with a synthetic beeswax base for a smooth, soft and long lasting application. All Info was provided for by Boxycharm card  Boxycharm box definitely won me over this month!

Tags for a boy's birthday

I don't normally have a lot of scrapbooking supplies for boys as all my scrapbooking is around 2 girls, so it was a great time to get rid of those stickers and stuff that I will not use in scrapbooking that I've had lying around in the bin since I started scrapbooking years ago.  When I began scrapbooking over 8 years ago it was mostly just stickers and 3D stickers - nothing like it is today - so advanced.  It is great to look back at my first scrapbook and think how I would do it differently today.  These tags where for a 6 y/o boys birthday.  I inked the edges, created round little turtle heads as the present was all Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles - I used my circle punch and then just cut out the different color eye masks and added the googlie eyes - too cute.  This little guy loves the beach, playing in the sand and in the park on the slide.
