Always an Adventure with Barb!

Hello Everyone! Barb here to host the blog today!

I know I should probably be creating winter layouts but I have to be honest, when it is 70+ degrees out everyday here in Arizona, I just can't bring myself to bust out the snowflakes!! I guess that is what happens when you live in the desert! So, instead of snowflakes, I brought out one of my favorite collections…. Just Because!

I love everything about this line… the colors, the patterns, the way it can be used for any type of photo! This photo happens to be from DisneyWorld. And I have to say… it is always an adventure with my girls!

The sun-ray type paper is one of my favorites. I love that the colors are bright without being overwhelming. I added some hand stitching to create a border and added some brads for interest.

One of my favorite things I have been doing with the PowderPuff Chalking ink is painting with it. I added some Viva Gold shimmer to the chipboard arrows and then painted on the Blue Hawaiian PowderPuff Chalking Ink by using a wet paint brush! I used Java PowderPuff chalking ink on the edges of all the patterned papers.

I hope you are seeing lots of sunshine wherever you are!
