Colorful

Well, it's a dreary, snowy, morning today! Very gray. So, I thought it would be fun to post some colorful projects. First up is a layout I did a while ago. It was in the October '08 Memory Makers. I absolutely love the photos on this one. I took them one day when we were at the shore. I think I'm going to frame the one of the swings.
I used lots of Queen and Co. stuff on it and Doodlebug glitter on the letters.




Next up is my 2S4Y card. I got a bunch of Jenni Bowlin stuff the other day. YUM! I absolutely adore her products. I added some American Crafts chipboard and that yummy ribbon is from M&J Trimming.



(Forgive the less than stellar photos. Remember, it's grey and dark here this morning.;) )

And finally, here is my card based on Rae's bonus sketch at 2S4Y. I used some Pink Paislee and K and Co. goodies on it. It's also my card for the Cardaclicious challenge. We were asked to use orange and green and a journaling card/tag.




I have been enjoying all of the sneaks from CHA! The new Webster's Pages is to die for! My hands are itching to get a hold of it and to start creating. Speaking of Webster's, there's an online chat at Inspire Me tonight at 9PM EST. Stop by!

Here are some of my other favorite things that I've seen so far: (Warning: lots of photos ahead...)

The Melissa Frances Fresh Twist collection. All I can say is YUM!!



I'm also in love with Bo Bunny's Love Shack collection. It's gorgeous!!


I'm so happy that Pink Paislee came out with some more boyish lines! But.it's their chipboard that I'm drooling over most!



Prima has outdone themselves this time! I can honestly say I want one of everything. Their flowers, papers and embellishments are all stunning. I love these flocked transparencies and the flowers are amazing.





Finally, here's Jenni Bowlin's newest release, Farmer's Wife. I'm just in love with it ALL!!! So glad it's ready to ship, because I'll be buying it ASAP. These milk caps are the cutest things ever!



Thanks for stopping by and bearing with my photo heavy post! Have a great day. ;)

Love, love your projects Anabelle! And how fun to see the sneaks of some of your new favorites. I thought I had seen all the new Prima stuff, but somehow I had missed those flocked transparencies. How cool are they? I'm loving the JB milk jug stuff and the buttons!! And the new Webster's is definitely yummy.
That chat had my head spinning again last night. Thank goodness I had my specs on this time. ;)
