I'm still here :-)

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a very nice weekend ahead!
It has been too long since I've updated this blog. I have had such a simple few weeks that I just felt I didn't have much to say...lol

But, I've had fun playing lately working on layouts and even some altered items. The second layout is using Crop Addicts April Mid-Month kit which features Fancy Pants papers and other delish goodies :) I captured this pic of Mozart hanging out in my scrap room. Since we moved, he has adopted this chair to be "his spot". I love seeing him snooze peacefully while I scrap, so I had to scrap it!

The first photo is of an altered "Piggy Tales" mini-clipboard that I purchased at an office supply store. I white-washed the chipboard color using FiberScraps "White" Tintz. I just have to say how cool these inks are. Truly. I've been using them for the last couple of years and I am still hooked. The handy "bingo" dauber-like bottles make application so-so easy. This season Fiber Scraps came out with white and black inks amongst a more vivid green color than their lime color and a nice sky blue color. Love these!

So, as you can see...... I white washed the clipboard and sort-of went crazy decorating it. I tried to be neat with red puffy paint , but of course ended up smudging it all over. So......I just had to "make it work!" (LOL!)
The next 2 layouts are just fun layouts that I felt inspired to create. I just cannot stay way from these colors lately. Lime green, hot pink, teal combined with a touch of red or orange. YUM! Really. I think I have color issues...lol.
I hope you all have a very wonderful weekend!
