Priceless Breanna

One of the biggest 'Wows' I learnt at Convention was that you can colour b&w photo's with SU! Pastels! Awesome! I'm not much good with software based photo editing as you can probably tell! so this hands on approach suits me down to the ground! I couldn't wait to get home and try it out and this is the result and I'm quite chuffed! Carrie Cudney's presentation at Convention was probably my favorite - I loved all her scrapbooking, and this page is inspired by her work. It's 100% SU! too!! I've stamped the backgrounds with the new So Swirly jumbo wheel, the title "Priceless" is from the set Priceless, the flowers, hat pin, beads, and pearls are all from the new Pretties Kit (love love love it - all the Flowers in the kit are white and you just colour them whatever colour you like- as Ive done here, one directly with a pink passion reinker and one with the pastels) and I finished it off with some black grosgrain ribbon. The colours are Pink Passion, Basic Black and Whisper White. Quite a simple page but effective. I'd love to hear what you think...


Whilst on the subject of my Beautiful girl -we recently celebrated her 3rd Birthday, I thought I'd show you the Birthday card I made for her and the cake Rick & I made. It was a Dora The Explorer - Fairytale Adventure Party, so we decided to make her Princess Dora's castle, we reckon we did pretty good - even if it did take nearly all night...


And here's her card...


The stamps are from Pretty Princess, stamped with stazon onto water colour paper and coloured with Stampin Write Markers and an Aqua Painter. The 3 is from the Simon Lower Chipboard Alphabet, coloured with lovely lilac and the dazzling diamonds glitter. I used the Tab Punch for the pull tab. The colours are Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise and Confetti White.

I think WOW, that scrapbook page is just gorgeous. With three boys I always have lots of blue. The pink is just so nice and I love all the accents. Great idea using the pastels on B&W photo's.

Just gorgeous Karen!! Love the scrap page - I am yet to try that idea of colouring with the chalks. The birthday cake is beautiful too!

Cheers, Jean
