how about some Peachy Keen?

The news has been so sad lately and while the events happening in Japan and in other parts around the world are still in the forefront of my mind I want to share something happy with you now.

How does that sound?

I have been playing with some of the new collections from American Crafts, most recently the Peachy Keen collection. It is so beautiful and worked just perfectly for some pictures I took at the stockyards in Fort Worth last month. Here's a picture I snapped of Hailey and Sarah walking down the main street.

I really enjoy the opportunity to play with my mists and paints and since I had the perfect colors to go with these papers I decided to go for it. Pink and ivory paint daubers from Jenni Bowlin, blue mist is from Maya Road and the white is from Studio Calico. Fun stuff!!

Everything here is from the Peachy Keen collection except for the little polka dot hearts and brown flowers
and the "bliss" chipboard. Those are from the Dear Lizzy Spring collection, another one of my faves.

These new embellishments are so cute and fun. The ribbon I gathered with thread and then attached with staples under the chipboard strip on which I used some foam adhesive.I sanded the little "bliss" piece. 

I hope that you are having a nice day. It's sunny here, it's Spring Break for the kids and since we have our van in the shop it's been a nice, quiet morning here at home. Well, not so quiet since the kids are here, but laid-back at least. I reorganized some things in the craft room and the kids have been doing some creating of their own. They say they want to be designers and work for a scrapbook company when they grow up. At least they have some good goals, right?
