Bright and Beautiful

Hooray for Friday! ¬†Weekend! So sad that we are down to our final weekends of the summer ūüė¶

Ok it’s my team’s week at Brown Sugar and our sponsor this week is

My Besties!

We have a really fun color challenge for you this week! Look how bright this is!! Just perfect for your summer projects!

So for my card this week, I dabbled in some watercoloring. ¬†I say dabbled because I’m not very good at it, but it was fun to play! ¬†I used my Sakura Create watercolor markers as well as some copics and a few of the distress oxide inks!

My DP is from My Minds Eye Рan older collection called Notable.  I also just added a few little sequins for that pop of red.


I hope you will join us over on the blog this week.  Play along, let us see what you can create with these colors and check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!


A Journey of Memories

It is shaping up to be a nice week here! I think that summer really decided to step up and be present! ¬†I’m loving the sunshine…

Which is why for my project for this week’s challenge at Penny’s, I wanted to use this cute little travel pig and some fun, bright, summery colors.

Our sponsors this week are BUGABOO STAMPS (4 free images for a lucky winner)


and CRAFTY SENTIMENTS (3 free images for a lucky winner)


For my project, I’m using this cute travel pig from Bugaboo! ¬†I am using up the last scraps of the wicked paper I received and Crop & Create and Vicki Boutin’s class. ¬†I’m just about down to the end now. ¬†I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this week. ¬†I colored the pig with these AWESOME watercolor markers that I won recently from¬†Creative Scrapbooker magazine¬†and¬†Sakura! ¬†Oh they blend like buttah! ¬†They are the KOI watercolor brush set! ¬†Love them! ¬†The sentiment are word stickers from Tim Holtz. ¬†I hope you enjoy the card and don’t forget to play along with us at¬†Penny’s!¬†Be sure to stop by the¬†blog¬†and see what the rest of the team has for you this week!
