Graduation and Rainbows - Queen & Co.

Join me on the Queen and Company blog today. 
My assignment was to highlight Metallic Bubbles and Cord.   
There are so many new embellishments in the shop, that you have to see!

For my first card, I started with the Foam Front Die - Polka Dots.  I filled the circles with Toppings: Bubbles and Metallic to match my Metallic Bubbles that filled some of the holes.
I tiny sliver of yellow washi for pop and blue Cord and a Paper Smooches sentiment for the graduate.

For my second card, I layered rainbow papers and then the new Cord in a rainbow pattern.  I used the heart and love sentiment from the Heart Throb Shaker kit.   I literally only used one piece of paper for this card.  Its the rainbow sheet from the Fruit Basket 6x6 paper Pad

Thank you for stopping by.  Head to the Queen and Company website to see all the new embellishments that are added often.  They are inexpensive and can add so much interest to your next project.  

BEACH - Paper Issues

It is Let's Get Sketchy day over on the Paper Issues Blog.  
I played along with the fun sketch and let the paper do the work.  I used Jillibean Soup Shades of Color Soup, a Punch and the letters from the collection.  Bomb.  Done.  

This was a super fun day with our friends, the Mastro's.  
We built sand castles, the kids covered themselves with dirt, we body surfed.  It was a glorious day.
Oh, and we caught crabs!

Anyway, here is my take on the sketch and I provided the sketch for you to see.  
You can play along too.
You have the entire month!

Crab-y - Paper Issues

I am on a mission to document one of the best days of last summer.  
We spent the day at the Short Sands, with the Mastro's.  
We dug in the dirt, made a castle, buried people, splashed in the waves, boogie boarded and more. 

 Oh, we caught crabs.  
There is a little inlet with beautiful rocks when the tide is low.  
We went over there and searched for crabs and pretty shells.  Not to keep, but to see.
So, us girls found the crabs.  The boys came over and took pictures like it was theirs.  It wasn't!

For this layout, I used a fun challenge from Paper Issues.  It is called...

You must place all your goodies on the top 1/3  of the page, leaving 2/3 open.
You must play along by June 3rd.

I used 2 Fancy Pants collection.  The NEW Poolside and mixed it with the old Making Waves.

Pool Party Tags - Fancy Pants


Eeeeek!  I love the Poolside collection from Fancy Pants!  So MUCH!

I decided to create some tags for either pool party invite or on gift bags from the pool party.

Wanna come to my house?
