Playing with New Things!

Well I finally had a chance to escape a few minutes yesterday to go to my stamping studio and scrap. Not an easy feat with 2 little ones around. My niece and nephew have been spending the weekend with me. I have a lot of respect for mom's everywhere that find time to do things for themselves. So here is this week's color challenge: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Certainly Celery. I tried to find a piece of Certainly Celery in the new designer paper but could not find a sheet, so I decided to go with the Old Olive from the Cottage Wall designer line. My new things have been teasing me since Thursday night since they came in and I was dying to play with ALL of my new things. So in honor of mommies everywhere, here's my scrap page wtih my nephew and my sister-in-law.

Here are the ingredients:

Stamp Set:
Circle Circus
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate chip, Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Latte Designer Buttons in Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Big Shot, Timeless Type Sizzlets, Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit, Birds & Blooms Sizzlits, Two Tags, Eyelet Border Punch, Boho Blossom Punch

Special Touches on the Page:
I diecut one of the new two tags and slipped it under the title for an accent as well as adding the eyelet border on the bottom of the title. The title needed a little something so I diecut the swirl and added to the title. All the images from the Circle Circus were stamped and cut out and added to the center with dimensionls.

Beautiful page. The page adds some nice girlish touches, but is great for a boy too. Great job.
