Baby Album Continues

I've finally got going on my son's long overdue baby album again. I swore I would have it done by the end of summer but didn't make it. Then I said by his 20th birthday which was Oct 4. Hump, I'm determined to finish it before the end of the year though! LOL Seriously!!

This is month 6 and his Easter pics. I used some embellishments I had in my stash such as the ribbon title, rub on, and the duck stickers.

This page I used A Child's Year to cut out the toy ball and stars. I inked everything and added some pearl bling for dimension.
Sorry about the photos. I used my daughters camera because I wanted to get them posted. It usually does a fair job but the pictures look a little grainy and miscolored this time.

I hope you enjoy following me on my journey and quest to finish this album. I'd love to hear your comments or even just a note of encouragement to keep going. LOL

Wicked Tilda

I made very special cards for my kids birthday cards this year. They have been wanting to see the Broadway Show Wicked and we surprised them with tickets! I couldn't resist using my Tilda's as Glenda and Elphaba.
I used Spellcaster Tilda as Glenda for the front of my card. I colored her with my copics and blinged her up with a glitter pen and rhinestones. The edge was punched with an EK Success border punch that I received from one of my awesome swap friends.

Here's a close up of Miss Glenda the Good Witch.

 On the inside I used Witch Tilda as Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West. I used a papertrey ink stamp for the sentiment using versamark and then used green embossing powder.  The Wicked was cut with my cricut and Storybook.
And here's a close up of Elphaba. I was a little afraid to try and make her flesh green but I think it turned out fabulous! I hope you enjoy my little spurt of creativity with my Tilda's. My kids were definitely surprised and we're all excited to see the play next month.

I'm entering this in the Just Magnolia challenge which is Anything Goes.
