Let's go Party!

Charis just celebrated her birthday over the weekend and Mom (as she likes to call me) was frazzled.  She had one celebration in school on Friday and one at home on Sunday.

I packed all the goodie bags for Friday and made little luggage shaped goodie bags for Sunday, but I only took photos on Sunday (DUH). 

Here's some photos of what I managed to capture that day.  We made many Martha Stewart Puff Balls in purple, shades of purple, misted with purple and decorated with purple flowers.

Ini mini miney more

I joined a challenge again, because I was so motivated by the giveaway. It was a Benefit pouch with a mermaid on the cover, listening to her seashell and going "she shops by her shell phone by the sea shore". It was amusing and I was sold!

So the rules were 6x6, using red green and white, with at least one photo 2"x 3", and twine in any color.

All that glitter is me, but the frills, puff and laces, I've gotta work on it!

I have not scrapped 6x6 ever, so it was a mental challenge for me! I scrapped away one instax photo and I really did not like the final look before I finally figured I could do a mini layout. Thankfully it was the start of the year and I had on hand little photos that I took of my girls for school use. I had one cheeky one of Charis which I wanted to keep somewhere, so I popped it into this layout challenge which I completed in an hour!

Look at that cheeky bit!

I did some doodling, stamping, misting and inked up some vellum butterflies.  My latest loot of Amy T's stamps are the best.  A little here, a little there and I completed my layout for the challenge.

And a million thanks to everyone that voted, I won the Benefit pouch.  I shall post a pix of it when I receive it ♥
