New *Tinkering Ink*

With CHA right around the corner, I wanted
to pop in and share some sneak peeks of Tinkering Ink's new "Botanical Bliss" line of gorgeous papers. The full releases of the new lines can be found on the Tinkering Ink blog by going to www.tinkeringink.com and clicking on the blog tab. Once again, I love the colors and patterns that Tink Ink has so gloriously combined. When these lovely papers arrived on my doorstep I couldn't wait to play. The pretty salmon pink, combined with a delicate yellow and vibrant teal blue made me inspired to do a layout about all of the things that make me happy. I mean, just looking at these colors were making me happy..lol. So thus the following layout titled, "This makes me happy." This layout came together very quickly, as these papers begged to be layered and as you know........I love to layer {wink}

The second layout, you may recognize
the photo from a previous layout.
When I saw the vibrant array of colors,
I couldn't help but to scrap this picture again.
Just as a recap. The photo is of my sister, Heidi last fall
as she was getting ready to go down a fun colored slide.
I love how the colors of the slide glow off of her skin, creating
a fun saturated look with no photoshop. Completely natural.
You can't get that look too often with out adjustments, so I guess this is one of my favorite shots I've captured. I think I will put this photo to rest for one and all though ;)
The 3rd layout is of Steve and I on a most recent trip to the falls here locally. I really loved the large gerbera daisy patterns of this line, so I had to handcut them, layer them and of course outline them with a nice chocolate colored pen to make the "pop". This page represents our love for our new town of Bend, Oregon. Well, we've been here almost 3 years and it still feels new because we are constantly discovering new and beautiful places that we never knew of before.

Lastly is a oldie photo, but a goodie! Next month, Steve and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. I still love going through the many books of wedding photos.
They always serve as perfect inspiration
to scrap when needed be. I thought this line also worked very well for
wedding pics.

Well, that's about it for today!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I've had a HUGE life lesson this past week and will share more on my next post.

For all of those attending CHA this week, HAVE FUN, wear comfy shoes, take you camera and drink LOTS of water and most of all ENJOY!!!! Have a great show!
