Sorry I've been a way for a while. 

Today I have a new MDS page featuring one of Gabbi's best pals, her sitter last fall Keri, and her pup Jasmine (or Tas according to Gab.)

The colors on this page- Basic Black and Wisteria Wonder- were inspired by Gabbi's outfit.  The bottom layer is Wisteria cardstock, with a layer of Black on top.  The ribbon of paper on the right side is from the Simple Snapshots DSP.  Once I decided to make the picture a circle with a thick black border, I decided to add the circle punch in a variety of colors (from the DSP) and variety of sizes.  As always I added a drop shadow to all of the circles.  Lastly I added the wording in white using the font Simply Glamorous.

Ladybug, Ladybug...

Another cute little project, similar to the M&M bumblebees (or as Gabbi says- bundlebees!) that we made for Gabbi's classmates.  These are cute little ladybugs that we made in one of my clubs.

This is a really easy little project, fun for kids- made using the Sweet Treat Cups and punches.  I punched out two 2 1/2 inch Real Red circles.  For one of those circles I punched a 1 3/4 inch circle out of the middle and put the treat cup through the hole popping out the front.  The second circle is on the back of the treat cup to hold it together... be sure to add the M&M's or Skittles first.  

The head was made with a 1 3/4 inch Basic Black punch.  The dots on the treat cup are just basic black hand-held punch.  I used an old scroll sizzlet and Bigshot and cut the ends off the scroll and taped them on the head to make antenna.  I taped googlies eyes (my favorite) on the head for eyes.

Hope you like these and enjoy making them.
