Last weekend I finally sat down to look at my stash of photos. I've had these photos since the spring of '07 (yes the date is wrong on the layout-I'll fix it later) and had the title all planned but was totally uninspired to work on it. When I saw these last weekend my idea finally formed- I'd switch them to black and white and use the new Perfect Day Paper Pack. It took 24 hours in between a full work schedule and sleeping to complete. I literally started Wed. night at 10 pm until 11:30, woke up at 5:30 Thursday am and worked on it till I had to be ready to leave for work. Then I returned home from work at about 5:30 pm and worked on it throughout cooking dinner, after dinner, after my daughter's bedtime... finishing about 9:30. It was CRAZY! But- all the effort payed off big because I won first place!! yipppeeee!! First place earned me $50 to spend on CTMH product!!
The photos don't show it well but this is what I did with my Color Ready Alphabets- first I used some of each option available for sale. Any letters with stamping were done with the September Stamp of the Month: Treasure Life in Juniper ink. Those with stamping were also sponged with Bamboo ink. The solid color letters on the right page are sponged with Juniper ink then covered with prisma glitter using the write and rub pen ( a must-have for glitter enthusiasts!!) the numbers were sponged with bamboo and edged in Desert Sand. All of the stamped flowers were also covered with the write and rub pen and Glitter.
The brown flowers are sponged with Bamboo and Desert Sand and the "blue/green" flower is Juniper.
