"Ni-Night Titus" - The Color Room Challenge TCR #90

Hey there Blogger Beauties!! :)

I had already started this layout of my daughter, Katie, and our Cockatoo "Titus Too". Then I saw the colors for Challenge #90 over at "The Color Room"... same exact colors... how awesome is that!!! It couldn't have been any easier.  I used a lot of Dusty Attic Chipboard and did a lot of sewing on this one! All of the chipboard is coated in Ranger's Black Enamel Accents and adhered with Glossy Accents.

Here's the Dusty Attic Chipboard I used...

DA0575 - Fancy Trim #5
DA0084 - Bird Cage #3
DA0020 - Mini Sparrow
DA0392 - Vintage Keys
DA0491 - Fancy Labels

I sell Dusty Attic on our website... I'm expecting a really huge shipment of Dusty Attic anyday now. All of the "Pre-orders" and "Backorders" will be filled first... then the rest will be listed in the store. I've been shipping everything that is in stock immediately... then the "Pre-orders" and "Backorders" ship for no additional fee when my orders arrive.

For the birdcage, I added a strip of crystal rhinestones at the top like a chain and a DA Sparrow that I painted white. The soft downy feather is from my cockatoo!! :)

For the Title, I used one of the Dusty Attic Fancy Labels. I created the title in photoshop, printed it out and cut it to fit the label. Then really drenched it in Glossy Accents so it would look like a huge epoxy embellishment!! :)

Here's a close-up of the DA Vintage Keys...

So... the story behind the photos...

Titus Too is like a forever "Two" year old!!! He needs his naps, has a temper if he doesn't get his way and requires a LOT of attention!! Katie, my sweet 12 year old, is absolutely awesome with him!! She gives him little showers in the sink and wraps him in a towel like a baby. In these photos she is literally rocking the bird to sleep!! If you'll notice... she is holding him soooooo tight that his little wings are laying across her chest!! Oh... and this spoiled cockatoo is named... "Titus Too" after my absolute favorite bible verse... Titus 2.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! I love your visits!! :)

Have an awesome day!! :)

Love through Christ...

"Cherry on Top" Easel Card using Dusty Attic


This was made for The Color Room... palette #85. I used the following Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces...

DA0575 - "Fancy Trim #5"
DA0466 - Ornate Corners #07"

I coated the chipboard in Ranger's Black Enamel Accents then adhered it with Glossy Accents. The Elizabeth Bell image was colored with Copic Markers and then I added Shimmerz to make it glittery!

"Believe" Card using Dusty Attic


For this card, I used Dusty Attic's "Believe" word and white crackle paint with a little bit of pink ink around the edges. Glossy Accents works great for adhering chipboard!
