Life is Good!

Yes,  life is really good especially when you share it with your friends.

Here's a mini album I made using the Best Creation Splash Fun 6x6 pad.  The mini pad is really perfect for mini albums and mini books.  Two papers of each and lots of tags to make the album.  I just added some scraps from my Surf's up papers and chipboards from Splash fun.

Don't forget to check out Best Creation blog for lots and lots of inspiration from my co designers.

Have a nice day!

Of Flowers and Wings

I love butterflies and clustering my embellishments especially the flowers. This is my favorite collection of Inkido - Forever.  And with little bits of Is this love and older lines,  I got the perfect page for my sister and her hubby.

 Here's another page with butterflies this time with my nephew and brother in law. I loved this color combination - brown and blue.

Thanks for the visit. Don't  forget to check out the inkido blog for lots of inspiration.

Splashes of Fun

A life without love is like a year without summer. - Sweddish Proverb
Well,  living in a tropical country is having summer all year round and I never regret it.  I dream of having white christmas and making snow angels too.  And I love love love making sand castles anytime of the year and diving underwater.  Yep,  that is the real me.  Beach lover.  A Mermaid with feet.
This week Best creations will show you all the fun in making water pages and how much we all love water.  Fussy cutting is easy with the Splash Fun collection to create the water. Of course,  with helmar Adhesives  our pages will always stand out.  Just like my own quote "  Behind every beautiful artwork is a glue - and that is Helmar!"
If you hop over to the Best Creation blog from now till the weekend, you will find lots of water-themed projects. There are guessing games with prizes to be won and many of the designers are having giveaways on their blogs.
Here's my two pager using Splash Fun:

close up on first page:  I used zap dots for lots of 3d  on those cute splashes.  Misting added more "splashes" on my page
a close up on page #2:
and there goes the ball!  It really looks like it created splashes on my page.

For a chance to win on my blog, leave me a comment by June 24th and I will draw one winner to win a pack of 6x6 collection and some extras.  Yes,  I will post anywhere in the world.

Make sure to visit other BC designers too.  Have great day!
