TGIF & New Shimmerz Pearlz "SamRock"

Hey gals so excited it's Friday, I am headed to the best scrapbook store in all of Texas, Scrappers Boutique in North Richland Hills. I am going to pick up the new Delovey by Cosmo Cricket. Whooohooo!!!! I am soooooo super pumped!! Love this line the bright colors are right up my alley!!

Not sure if you've treated yourself to visiting the Shimmerz blog to check out the new colors and DT work for the new Pearlz but they are divine. Here is a layout I did with "SamRock Pearlz" one of my favorites.

For details on how I used "SamRock" Pearlz on this layout please visit the Shimmerz blog here

See you ladies soon!! Have a scrappy weekend!!

I'm Green with Envy

Green with Envy has quickly become a personal favorite. The color is bright, bold, and the shimmer is amazing. The texture is thick and creamy.

For this project I started by stamping the background using bubble wrap and just one coat of Green with Envy. Which was perfect for my paper choice "Life's Portraits" since there isn't alot of yellow in the patterns.
I pretty much went Pearlz crazy on this layout. I painted my doily, I put a dollop of Pearlz in the center of my red flower, I distressed my edges of the paper, brushed a nice thick coat onto my flowers, and even daubed random paint patterns onto my alphabets using a small paint brush.

It's time ladies to whip out your paint/steeple brushes and daub away at something on your project using Shimmerz Pearlz. You'll love the effects
My design was inspired by a sketch from our very own Lady Grace Belarmino

Happy Scrapping!!!

When all else fails--- Paint with Shimmerz Pearlz

Over the past two weeks I have missed a Creative Scrappers reveal, the new Shimmerz Pearlz reveal, and a ton of other scrappy things. So what do you do when you have NO mojo, and no access to the online world? Well-- you-- DECORATE, LOL!!

I took my two weeks and cleaned my home, and decided to paint my guest bathroom. Jeremiah always gets on me for not taking before pictures. But I did get some after shots. And here they are...

we replaced the ugly builders mirror, painted and sponged the walls, put in all new fixtures, and lighting. Steven and I only had a few fights, NOT bad, LOL!!!

Now that I am back I do have some yummy Shimmery projects to share with you all. I will reveal them over the next few days.
But let's start with a super fun layout of Bailey and her tantrums...

Layout: How to throw a tantrum 101

Ok, so how many of you have this to deal with? This is everyday for me :(
But this is just a STAGE right??? Right???

And here is one of my Shimmerz Paints Pearlz projects. If you haven't been to the blog to check out the DT reveals and the new Pearlz colors then shame on you,lol.

Layout: Goodbye
this is Madison Christmas 2008 saying goodbye to our neighbors. This is based on the BAP sketch from Prima this month.

And here is a sneak peek of more shimmery goodness

Some stuff to share

I created this layout in around 20 minutes. I was so freaked out that it happened so quickly. It doesn't have any of my usual detail. But I love it nonetheless.

This is Bailey in December watching Jeremiah, and Madison play in the snow. Which we had alot of this past year in Texas. Bailey however, was terrified of it. I wanted so bad for her to just muster enough energy to go play, and enjoy herself.

as sad as she was, I got this picture and this layout out of the situation. :)

This one is of my friends cute kid Jayla. She just loves the camera, and the camera loves her. This was done months ago for SNA Magazine Jan/Feb issue.
Kitchen Spice by BoBunny was one of my favorite collections last year. And the Prima is perfect here.

This is Madison and her cute self hanging out by the tree on Easter Sunday. I love the mix of these colors.

Ladies, next week the 10th we will have some super cool reveals going on on Facebook for Shimmerz Paints. So stay tuned.
