The story behind the pic's.....We have this beautiful chestnut tree in our backyard..okay it's beautiful till the leaves dump in the fall and we need to rake up 12 bags. So we came up with this "Family Tradition" when our daughter was 3 to make it a family leaf raking day. Our son Rian who is 12 years older than his sister didn't think the "Family Tradition" thing was very cool...simply put, to him it was just work! But judging by the pictures I take every year of this little event they have a great time!! This set of pic's goes back to 2008...yes I'm that far behind..even further actually but oh well.
I have used a ton of distressing on this layout along with Goosebumps & Fireworks (Desert Sand Rhubarb Stalk & Rich Cocoa). I also added Frayed Burlap Distress ink to all the edges of the distressed areas. The Goosebumps really adds some wonderful texture and sheen to the paper & I really like that. The ribbon was sprayed with Fireworks as well.
Hope you like it!! Don't forget to check out the awesome Blog Candy we are giving away this month to celebrate my new store opening...you can find it HERE!
Have a wonderful day!!!

UGH I am rusty! I used Stamping Bella Lulu's morning fix! ADORE this image! I also was lucky enough to receive a HUGE box of yummy stuff from the store! My birthday is Sunday and since it is a biggie (the BIG 3-0) I told hubby all I wanted was an excessive allowance to spend on whatever stamp stuff I wanted. After the above conversation he looked at me kinda crazy but agreed and I ran, not walked, to the store site to take full advantage of the Summer Sizzler sale!!! My order arrived yesterday and I was pulling out soooooo much stuff! I stocked up on my lala's, kraftin kimmies, and nesties! hurry and take advantage now because these prices are simply fabulous!
also scroll down for the HUGE blog candy celebrating the brick and mortar store!!!

Hi all, Madge here for another wonderful Wednesday showcase. I’ve chosen to use a wonderful little summer image of Isabelle with puppy by Sara Kay for Stampavie.
I love these images as they are loaded with so much detail.
I wanted my image to literally “pop” off the page – so I cut out the main image and layered it onto the same stamped image, leaving all the fussy details in the background. The background was pre-colored by sponging with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Broken China and Peeled Paint). I added highlights for the grass and flowers.
I had colored this image a while back, so the search was on for the DP’s to match. I found them in my 6 x 6 stash from “A Walk in the Park” collection.
Supplies used: Xpress It blend cardstock; Memento, Tuxedo Black ink; Copic Markers; Tim Holtz Distress Inks; EK Success Border Punch; DP’s from “A Walk in the Park; Flowers and Ribbon from stash; Misc SU Cardstock.
OCS is only days away from opening an actual Brick and Mortar Store!!!!! That means LOTS more “STUFF”………Prizes will be given away to celebrate!!!! Become a follower of OCS and there will be wonderful surprises in store for some persons!! And there is still the opportunity to join the OCS challenge for the month of August “Fun in the Sun” to win additional free stuff!!
Til next time.

London Fog before coloring with my copics. Any of the lighter colors I think will work and what a fun way to challenge yourself! Here's a close up:
copic multiliner pen to add her eyebrows and lashes. I also used a black copic multiliner to do all that detail on her wings. I really wanted them to look like monarch wings.
My papers are Cosmo Cricket PixieLicious. She was cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilites in both Circle and Scallop circle. The finishing touches were some Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade and some Stickles.
You still have plenty of time to get in our Fun in the Sun challenge : )

Patterned Paper: KaiserCraft Bubblegum Hills
Belles 'n Whistles: A Pen Friend
Copic Xpress-It Blending Cardstock
Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large and Small
I used 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch square punches for my background. The smaller squares are popped up on foam tape. The white oval has been run through my Xyron machine and covered with glitter. I stamped, colored and fussy cut my main image since she was a tad taller than my white oval. The butterflies are fussy cut from a fun sheet of glitter paper from the paper pack I listed above. The blue squares on my background have glossy accents as well.
Thank you for stopping by today!

I am LOVING these Kenny K images! They are so fun to color and the girls are sooo sassy! A lot of the masculine images out there are for younger guys and boys but I love that this image is perfect for the older guys in our lives! I kept this card simple and just added some linen thread with the button. I wanted this card to be masculine so I did';t add to many frills to it.

I decided to make a run for crazy colors to change her from drab to “fab”! lol When I got finished with the pleats on her dress, I thought she looked drab, so I drew in some polka dots and colored them to match the paper. Excuse the pun – but Cow-a-bunga! Just what Maya needed.
