Here's my LO for Color Combos Galore #151. I loved the summery colors but was definitely challenged when I realized that I didn't have a "matched set" of papers. I put together old papers that were in the color scheme from my stash and drew my own waves for a unique water design.

Here's my LO for this week's challenge at Color Combos Galore. I rarely work with this combination because it's a very American and patriotic color scheme, for which I have few pictures to match. But I remembered that I had this floral paper from Making Memories, which is almost exactly like the tablecloth in the inspiration, in my stash and just wanted to use it already.
Title: Being Silly
Materials: Cardstock - Bazzill; Patterned Papers - Girls Paperie, Making Memories; Sticker - 7 Gypsies; Ticket - Jenny Bowlin; Alpa - October Afternoon; Brads & Floss - Karen Foster; Ball Lace - Fancy Pants; Striped Ribbon - Chatterbox; Misc gingham ribbon; American Crafts pen
Hope you can all join in this week's challenge!

Here's a LO I created for my July 3 blog post at Kiki-Art. I love how easy it was to put together because the Kiki-Art paper from the Familia line and the glittered chipboard hearts are already very colorful and express the exact sentiments I wanted. I also cut out my title letters with my Slice machine and added some stickles to match the hearts.
Journaling: I am so glad that Nadya & Bianca adore each other because nothing in the world will ever be better than having your sister! April 2010
Materials: Cardstock: Wassau, DCWV; Paper & Chipboard hearts - Kiki-Art; Ranger Stickles; American Crafts pen; misc ricrac

Here's my LO for CCG#149. The colors here are one of my favorite combinations.
This little girl here is my niece Ella. We stayed with her family in LA for a week in May and we all fell in love with her!
Well, all of us, except Bianca, that is, who was jealous of all the attention that Ella got. Just this morning, I asked her if she liked her name and she said "I want my name to be Ella" and when I asked her why, she said "I wish I was still a baby." And it's been over a month since we left them!
Title: Ella Bella
Journaling: Everyone falls in love with Ella because she's always smiling, or eating, or both. May 2010
