Hello friend! For this project I pulled out my stash of dies to create the scenery and then colored up Audrina Swinging By Tire Swing to enjoy it. It’s been so hot this summer that I’m ready for cooler temperatures and for those autumn colors to emerge. Sigh. It will be a while for that to happen. But in the mean time, I hope you enjoy this project.
I was inspired by the Loads of Fun washing machine set and thought it would be funny to have a spinning load of socks – all of them mismatched, of course. So when I spotted the Reveal Wheel, I knew that was the combination I needed. The trick was to combine the shaker card idea with the wheel. What I thought was going to be easy ended up taking forever. But it worked and it’s so fun to play with.
This is sweetness! At least for Louisa it is. For this project, I’ve used the stamp set Polka Dot Pals Louisa and the coordinating accessory stamps to create this scene. If you want to know about my errors, then don’t miss out on the YoutTube video where Amelia is all too eager to point them out. And read below to know a few of the details on how I created this scene.
And now for something entirely different… a game of basket-boom! Oh yes, it’s played on the most festive occasions such as patriotic day and new year’s eve. This one gets played often high up in the rocky mountains as you can tell by the permanent explosion marks on the ground. The only draw back is that it requires a new hoop. Bummer.
Sometime little notes are needed which I have made a few. They have been quick to put together and I’ve enjoyed using the simple images from Lawn Fawn. This one for example – I stamped the characters in black which makes coloring very quick and less time consuming that no-lines coloring. Plus these little notes are a great way to brighten up someone’s day.
I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore. Nope, I went outside and it still looks and feels like Texas. However, I still had the feeling I should color up Polka Dot Pals Vera as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz featuring blue plaid prints and ruby red slippers from the iconic movie. She was fun to color.
