A couple of things that some of you have either emailed, commented, or called me about:

TAAFOMFT posted a new challenge, and there are some yummy prizes up for grabs. Head on over to check out the latest challenge, your favorite friend. Stop on by the blog, and check out all the lovelies from the rest of the DT. I’d LOVE to see you all play along! This is what I came up with:

Some people have asked me how I created the flowers on this one. Here’s how:

  • I misted a piece of plain white cardstock with a flower mask.
  • When it was dry, I removed the flower mask , which left an imprint on the cardstock.
  • Then I “colored” in the flowers with a clear liquid adhesive.
  • Next, I sprinkled glitter onto the adhesive.

My local scrapbook store, Memories Live On, had their ScrapBlue event this weekend. There was LOTS of creativity going on at that crop! The Kiki Art make and takes I designed were fun, and people seemed to really like the finished product.Β  They were creating a simple acrylic tag that can be used on gifts and what not.

My table to play and teach!

Cute little tags for gifts using misting techniques and new Kiki Art products!

All smiles at the make and take table.

Adding the finishing touches to the tag!

Deciding on the funtape was the hardest part!

Go girl, go! Use that funtape!

Holly and I goofing around at the event. Yes, we did WORK, and LOTS of it!

End result… Kiki Art was a huge hit. During the event, a lot of croppers went to the store to pick up some of the latest stuff! One of them actually asked me if it was okay to scraplift one of my layouts that I had brought as a display, hehe. I didn’t mind one bit.

She's scraplifting my WATER Rain layout! I found that so flattering! πŸ™‚

I did it! Well… we did it! 50,000 views… and it was definitely before my birthday! Thank you to everyone who helped me reach my goal. I appreciate all of the comments and visits from everyone. Really, I do. I love to share my work, and I appreciate those of you who share your creativity and inspiration with me as well. πŸ™‚ Honestly, I’m so grateful. As promised, there will be winners. Don’t worry; I didn’t forget! I just haven’t had the time to pick names, but I’ll get there this week.

Oh, and look what I got in the mail — a magazine with one of my layouts printed in it! Toot for me! πŸ™‚

"Mommy's in this magazine. How come it's not a layout with me in it?!"

Stay tuned for tomorrow. I’ve got some Imaginisce news to share with everyone, and you are not going to want to miss it! πŸ™‚ See you all very soon!
