Usher Concert **MOXXIE**

These juicy colors on MOXXIE's Fun Run line called for a fun picture. Here is my friend Sarah being a cool mom and escorting her daughter Hailee and 2 friends to an Usher concert. I love that they made custom shirts for the event. Now that's cool!

 

The paint splats on the multi color paper look just like the colors on their shirts. The swosh gives it movement. You might notice that the curve of the swosh is the cut portion of the purple paper. I liked the organic line, so I kept it for the purple. I also misted the background for that extra little pop of color. The speech bubbles are colored felt.

I'll love you forever

I'm loving this new SPRING line from MOXXIE. It is so bright and cheerful. This picture is of my dear friend Sarah with her 2 kiddos. Aren't they all just lovely. This fresh photo reminded me of a happy day, so I scrapped it in a happy way.

I used the book verse, "I'll love you forever, I'll like your for always, As long as I'm living, My baby you'll be." Perhaps it was seeing these kids who were just babies a moment ago looking so grown up that inspired that quote. I had fun mixing the MOXXIE letters with hand journaling and a cork heart for interest in the title. 

Here is a close up of my blingy flower too. For a touch of fun!

SPRING MOXXIE Blog Hop

Spring has sprung. 
In sunny California where I live, kids are already swimming. The air is fresh and cool and flowers are starting to bloom. I love this season. 

MOXXIE created this great line celebrating the joyful colors of Spring. The colors are juicy and fresh. I found some wood blocks and knew right away what I would do with them. I cut the MOXXIE Springtime papers into squares and adhered to all sides of the blocks. I painted some wooden letters yellow for a sunburst pop of color. Added some embellishments to the tops, sides and backs. 




Wa la- a HAPPY SPRING decoration for my home in such lovely colors. 
See what else the MOXXIE Muses created with this oh so pretty line.

Friends thru the Ages

I met Sarah in the 7th grade when I felt like a nerdy outcast and she was the popular flirt. Despite distance (we both moved in high school), we kept in touch. I was her Maid of Honor and she was mine. This picture is when she came to visit me when my youngest was born. It is so nice to have a friend who knows where you came from and sees the evolution of who you are.

To showcase this photo, I used MOXXIE's Springtime line filled with juicy, happy colors. The vibrancy of the line sings to me of friendship and youth.


I smeared paint on the background, then stamped over with more paint. Layered on the pretty Springtime papers and used MOXXIE letters that coordinate so well. A few embellishments here and there and the page was a breeze

Waiting on a swimming line (fingers crossed, hint, hint). I'd love to see more Martial Arts as well. 

To show off one of these lines, here is my son's basketball team photo. I played with lines to give it a look of motion.

Christmas Pups

Our dogs are truly members of our family so of course, they need to celebrate Christmas with us...whether they like it or not. I made both pages with MOXXIE's Happy Pawlidays.

In 2000, we have a white and red dog. For this simple page, I added some red paint to anchor the photos and the paper and stickers did the rest of the work for me.

 Well, 13 years later both those beloved pups have passed away and we have 2 dogs again. Somehow, they are white and red again. We bought these doggy elf costumes for the 2 pets above (they hated them) and reused them in 2013 for these 2 pups.

Don't they look like the most unhappy elves ever? I must admit, it cracks me up!!
 
These papers can be used for doggy or kitty Christmas pics or just for Christmas pics without pets. But why? It's so much fun to include your pets...whether they like it or not.

Paintball SPLAT

My son's 11th birthday is this weekend. And his scrappy mama had to make him invites for his party. He wants to go paintball blasting with friends for his birthday party.

MOXXIE's Fun Run paper is a blast- literally. Look at the great color paint splats. Perfect for paintball. I cute the paint splat paper into splat shapes. A bit of inking and hand doodled border and I'm I'm all set!

 Hope they have a blast shooting colorful paint at each other!
