Little Reno

Hi, blog readers, just letting you know that I am doing a little blog renovating,well actually Kristine is doing it for me.I am so dumb when it comes to all things digital,thats why would I sit and totally screw the whole thing up when I can have someone come in and do it for me.Be patient, I'm telling her stuff that I want and whatever via e-mails,so it is a hit and miss kinda thing.She works, I don't,so it could take a day or two,but I'm loving what I see so far.

On a scrapping note, I did a layout for the Monthly Prize Challenge at LIITD.Check it out below.I started with a sketch,but the layout kinda took on a life of it's own,but I guess that is the good thing with sketches. You can take a little bit of it that appeals to you and go a long way with it.I love sketches!!!!!!!! In fact, you can never have too many.

Man, I love Fancy Pants! This Daily Grind line really caught my eye,plus I won a prize on their blog awhile back and it just so happened to be some of the Daily Grind product that I didn't have.This layout is exclusively done with FP product other than the MM journaling page and liquid pearl.

Which brings me to my other new obsession,yes the liquid pearl.I love it! Thanks Mel:) I have wanted to get the dimension that Melanie does on her layouts but I just couldn't and still can't do it like her. I tried puffy paint,which turned out WRONG!Melanie sent me three kinds of liquid pearls and I used the baby blue on this layout.I need to play around with it some to get the right size droplet etc.but it drys way faster than I expected and it gives you a nice raised dot.
