Let Your Dreams Fly - Thrift Shopped Junkie

From the second I saw the Thrift Shoppe Junkie kit I knew it was going to be one of my absolute favorites!  It's sooooo beautiful.

With the exception of a couple digi flower stamps and the Webster's Pages green flower trim, everything on here is from Thrift Shoppe Junkie.  (OK, the actual text pages I used aren't technically from this kit but you do get a couple of text pages in the kit.)

I love the Pink Paislee frames that come with the kit.  I have no idea what material they are but they're kinda the texture of taffy although they keep their shape.  They come "naked", a manilla color, and I sprayed this one with lime Maya Mist.  Love how the color concentrated in the crevices. 

And how stinkin cute are those Prima pebbles???????  Perfect for little girl or baby pages. 

Incidentally, the pics on this layout are the last professional pics I had taken of my daughter.  She's 4 months here.  She's almost 5-years-old now.  Guess I should think about getting some more, eh?

I'm taking a Claudine Hellmuth techniques class online and am learning some really fun painting techniques.  Here I incorporated a watermark resist with acrylic paint wash and acrylic paint stamping.  I love the way it came out.

Girly Girl

(This layout was inspired by a collage over at NVS.)

I found a pic of my Girly Girl at age 4 right after her baby brother was born.  She's so beautiful!
She was sooo posing for that picture!  She did it on her own...with no direction.  What a ham!

I played with Picnik to add part of the title to the photo.  So cool!

I misted a kraft envelope (by Maya Road) to match.  F...U...N!
I used some elements from my Pink Ninja Addicts Kit: Carousel!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful summer!

Fear of Falling

I created this layout for my Design Team position at All About Me challenge blog.  The Challenge is Your Fear.  Check it out and play along!

 One of my HUGE fears is FALLING!  I'm afraid of the point of panick attacks.  I have to do breathing exercises going up elevators of VERY tall buildings (YES, THIS WASHINGTONIAN HATES THE SPACE NEEDLE)!  I can't look out windows from high for too long....and forget about peering over a balcony!  Yikes!  But that's not all.  I can't even look at it on tv!  If someone is on a ledge I get sick, if the camera shot is overlooking the street from up high I turn my head, if my kids are NEAR a window or balcony, I watch and let them enjoy...but then say after a few minutes "Get away from there or you'll give me a heart attack!"  Yes, friends, I too have issues!  Don't let my cheery smile fool you!

And since I'm usually quite long-winded, I couldn't say this all on my layout because it would take away from it I wrote a quick poem....ha ha!

My legs turn to jell-o when I think about being up HIGH….or when I see someone too close to the edge, looking down below. My heartbeat quickens, I can’t seem to breathe. I pray for the moment to pass and that TWISTING in my heart to ease, with the return to SAFETY.

Once again, I created with my FAVE Pink Ninja Addicts Kit....Accidentally Kelly!  Ninja Masters...I dunno how you do it month to month, but your kits are so rockin' cool!
