“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

This week I decided that I was going to participate in the Heart 2 Heart challenge because I found myself with a couple of hours to create the other night - imagine that! I have been working on scrapbooking pictures that I have from game night held at my church and I managed to find pictures that worked well with the given color combination. So I thought it was pretty easy to work with these colors, being that I usually have trouble working with picking colors. Enough blabbing, let me show you what I created!
I even decided to get creative and made dice and dominoes using Topiary brads that I discovered I had!

2 page layout using the Splendor Paper pack:
3x3 card featuring the Cherry-O Creative Basics and the You're Sweet stamp set (the cherry is scratch-n-sniff!):

The first one uses the new Splendor paper pack, our new Irresistible lots of dots chipboard resist shapes and the brand new stamp set Hot Diggity. I used Moonstruck Ink to stamp the butterfly as well as ink up the Irresistible frame around the word thanks. I added some Glitz glitter glue to give it some sparkle. I used the rock-and-roll technique to stamp "thanks."
The second one uses the new Cherry-O paper pack, Irresistible lots of dots, Cherry-O Opaques and the Bowl of Cherries stamp set only available with the purchase of the Cherry-O Workshop on the Go. I used Sweet Leaf ink to ink the Irresistible as well as Tulip and Chocolate for the stamped images. Some of the cherries are lighter than others, this is accomplished by using the second generation technique - stamping the image a second time without re-inking the stamp to get a lighter image.
