My Minds Eye Blog Challenge #16: Black - "Fun Journey" ... Bicycle Rack built 4 two!


Here is a layout I entered in the My Minds Eye Blog Challenge #16: Black. It's a photo of my girls sitting on a Bike Rack in downtown Grants Pass, Oregon!

The rules: Use ANY My Mind’s Eye products (current or past) as long as your project has at least 80% My Mind’s Eye products.

I used 100% My Minds Eye "Lost & Found" items...

Red Background - "Favorite" Birds of a Feather Glittered Paper
Black & Cream Stripes - "Perfect" Happy Glittered Paper
**I used the "Double Arches" Martha Stewart "Around the Page" Punch
Light Damask with Red Glittered Flags - "Home Sweet Home" Love Glittered Paper

Dark Damask Circles - "Perfect" Damask Print Paper
Red & Black Scallop around the Circles - "Beautiful Day" Journey Glittered Paper
**I Used the "Deco Fan" Martha Stewart Punch... then cut between the scallop shapes. The paper is black on one side and red on the other. So I inked half of each color and glued them behind the circles.

Large Red & Black Flowers - "Beautiful Day" Journey Glittered Paper
Small Flowers - "Home Sweet Home" Love Glittered Paper
**I used punches to get the flower shapes, then spritzed them with water and scrunched them up! When dry... I flattened them out and inked them.
Flower Centers - "Favorite" Decorative Brads

3 Additional Red Brads on each Damask Circle are also the "Favorite" Decorative Brads

I Double Matted the Photo with the "Beautiful Day" Journey Glittered Paper
**I used Scallop Scissors on the Black Matt

The Ticket is from Union Square "Moments"

The Tag with the word Journey is cut from the "Beautiful Day" Journey Glittered Paper

The Bike and Decoration are Acrylic stamps from the "Portobello Road" Boy Collection
**I used Colorbox Cat's Eye "Dune" ink so it would match the Ticket

The Frame and Word "Fun" are Acrylic Stamps from the Union Square "Perfect" Collection

This was a lot of fun to make!
The Lost & Found Collection is absolutely AMAZING!!!!

Have a great day!! :)

God bless & big hugs...

"Sweet Sisters" - Challenge at my LSS using the Lost & Found Collection by My Minds Eye

Hi! I hope you're all having a great weekend!! :)

We have a new scrapbook store in Grants Pass called "The Sassy Scrapbooker" and I love it!!! Kimberly is absolutely awesome and she has her calender cram packed with classes & challenges!! Here is a layout of my baby girls that I entered in her "Lost & Found" Challenge. We had to make a 12x12 layout and use 75% from the Lost & Found Collection by My Minds Eye. We could also use 25% in additional supplies if they were purchased from her store.

The pics were taken last Sunday in Downtown Grants Pass. I just love the bench, brick wall & ivy... it made for a perfect photo shoot!! My girls are ALWAYS singing and now they're even writing lyrics!! So, I just had to use the beautiful Music Note Paper!!

I went with the pinks & browns in the "Madison Avenue" Line...

Background paper with soft cream stripes is the "Labeled Paper".
Brown & cream striped paper is called "Pintuck".
Music Notes paper is called "Lovely Glittered Paper"
All of the flower centers have the "Decorative Brads".
The "Sweet" Banner, Sugar & Spice poem & Bird are "Glittered Layered Stickers"
"Sisters Glittered Title".
The little pink pom-pom ribbon "Trim" is from the "Market Street" Line.

Additional supplies...

Brown & Pink Bazzill
Cream Chenille that I crocheted a flower with


Martha Stewart "Swirling Lace" Around the Page Punch
Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" Edge Punch
Flower & Leaf Punches (I'll soon be offering die-cuts in our store)

I put soooooo many pop dots on this layout that it probably won't even fit in a page protector!! I may go ahead and put it in a shadow box.

I like the Lost & Found Collection soooooo much that I ordered it from My Minds Eye!!!  So, in the next couple of days I'll have everything available in our store! I also ordered the gorgeous flocked chipboard albums with matching papers & embellies from the "Lush" Collection. I think I'll do a challenge or two and offer some RAKS to give away. I'll post details later when I figure out what I'm gonna do!! LOL!!

Have an awesome Sunday!! :)

God bless & big hugs...
