Silly Polka Dots

Hello people!
How are ya? I am feeling good because I am gettin' some scrappin' done this week.
I'm sharing a couple I recently finished. Watch out the first one is really bright!

DD in her new Polka Dot outfit. Oh my how she loved those polka dots. I thought it was the cutest little outfit EVAH!

My base c/s is melon mambo. Behind the photo I used green galore and lovely lilac c/s. My title is made with chipboard tiles, white, foam thickers, green glitter thickers and die cut letters.
I made the big flower at the bottom. You just use scrap c/s and paper and cut them randomly, crumple and distress. I added a clear button to the middle with some lime thread. I adore the lacy ribbon on this page. It is from a Fancy Ribbon pack called Holly Jolly. Leave it to me to use Christmas themed ribbon on a bright and cheery page! The other button at the bottom is from a 3 pk. I got at Wal-Mart. I added a few stickles and some more chipboard accents. Oh yeah, how do you like my random pink pearls? I think they finished the page nicely.

This next page was very simple to put together

Aaron got a little bored so he entertained us while we waited for our table. What a character!
My base is soft suede c/s. The patterned paper is from a DCWV stack. I "boo-booed" on my inking on the upper right hand side of the page sooooo, I cut a few kraft circles, inked and distressed them to cover it up. The title and journaling is computer generated. I gathered my sheer olive green ribbon at the bottom and then added another handmade flower. With this one I used kraft c/s, the same paper some thin ribbon strips and a glittery, fabric piece.
Thanks for coming by today! God bless you and I hope you have a great weekend!

Gotta go, lots to do...

Until next time...
Blessings...

So cute!

Here's a tip... if you "oops" with your inking.. take a white eraser and "erase" it... I've done it a ton of times... sometimes it takes it off so good you have to reink!
