Simon Says

How is everyones week going so far? Mine is better than last week but always looking forward to the weekend.

This week at Child's Play Challenges our inspiration comes from the electronic game, Simon. My inspiration came from the colors on the game itself. I thought the colors of the balls in these photos were perfect for this challenge.

My son always liked to play in the balls at the McDonald's Playland when he was little. When he got a little older, he was able to crawl through the tunnels & go down the slide.

Spring Blog Hop with SNC

I am happy to be part of the Spring Blog Hop with the Skrap N Chat ladies. I was fortunate to find these wonderful ladies last summer when Club CK decided to close their chat forum. If you got here from Dana's blog, you are in the right place. If not, you might want to go back to the beginning of the blog hop, which is at Karen's blog. The complete list of blogs is at the end of my post.
When I decided to participate in the Spring Blog Hop, I was thinking of creating another wedding layout but when I sat down at my desk I decided I wanted to do a canvas. I like to play with  mixed media & have been wanting to make another canvas creation.

I love flowers & butterflies & all things pretty so I figured this was the perfect opportunity.

Here is a closeup on my cluster of flowers.

Heidi Swapp- Butterfly & flower stencil
Websters Pages- Perfect Accent resin embellishment
Recollections- Acrylic flowers

I used Liquitex modeling paste with my stencils. I added gelatos to the modeling paste for the butterflies. I just rubbed some yellow gelato color on the dried modeling paste & used a wet paintbrush to spread it around. The diecut leaves were embossed & cut on a Sizzix machine. I inked the edges with distress ink.

I hope you can find the time to go through the whole blog hop. I know I will be hopping along also. I may even do it more than once & dream about Spring since we may  get up to 7 inches of snow today.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Stacy & here is the complete list of blogs that are participating in the Spring Blog Hop. 

Happy Scrappin!

Hi fellow Scrappers! This week is a special kind of challenge. We are doing a crossover with Scrapstuffz Inspired by Challenges(SSIB). We have Sand Art for our Craft Inspiration & also a sketch. Hop on over to Child's Play Challenges to see the photos for inspiration.

Here is my layout that I made with the sand art & sketch inspiration. My inspiration was the colors of the sand art.
