Raining Cats and Dogs!

Hello! What a rainy day today was! My Mom always says she can never clean the house on rainy days because she gets depressed by it, but I think that I am the opposite! I went on a cleaning frenzy this morning, straightening my brother's messes (and a few of my own too!) and vacuuming, getting ready for my parent's to return home from their vacation. It's always so nice to come home to a clean home after being away!

Check out this gorgeous card my friend Sara made at my house yesterday! She used the bridalpartybellas, which I haven't even used yet since ordering them (thanks for christening them for me Sar!). She colored them with...wait I just got side tracked by a lightening bug outside my window, that only means one thing, that summer is here! yay!...okay back to the subject at hand, she colored them with twinkling h2o's. I love the paisley paper she used for her background. Sara made this for a Bella swap she joined on Splitcoast, way to go Sara!
I made this card yesterday, the Good Friends are Priceless. I love this stamp from My Favorite Things and tried to take my time coloring it in, I spent about 15-20 minutes just coloring the main image, a lot of time for me! This layout is inspired by Taylor over at Taylored Expressions, she does some gorgeous work on her blog!

I am a part of a Yahoo Group dedicated to scrapping, that Anna got me involved with and these 4 elements are for a technique swap that I joined with the theme being summer. My technique was alcohol inks and distress inks which I haven't used in awhile. I forgot how much fun they are, especially the distress inks! There are endless options. The only thing using the distress inks here is the "Journey Tag", the other pieces use some alcohol inked pieces and a lot of stamping. I hope the ladies enjoy these pieces, now I just need to get them mailed out!

Tomorrow is the Meet-Up group at the store and we are finally doing ATCs! I am so excited. I need to work on one to demo at the meeting, which I will probably do tomorrow. I also have pictures from the pages I made with last month's page kit, super cute! Stay tuned!
