Ahhh relaxing -NOT!!! Hear that *thump* thump* thump* sound? That's me frantically running through this week with my hair flying about in all directions! Just trying to get some direction going this week has been a challenge. So I made a big long I am now up to the list point: Blog entry for My 2 Angels April DT Tutorial here it is.. (check).
Firstly, here is the page I did for the Colouring Chipboard Using Inks Tutorial (clicky here if you wish to see the tutorial). It's called Relaxing.

This Layout is one of myself and Wendy drinking some Midori cocktails that my wonderful husband made for us on Boxing Day. It was such a lovely day - warm weather and good company and great cocktails!!

The gorgeous Bo Bunny paper was just too beautiful to cut ink or tear so I left it whole and used it as a main focus. I inked the buzz and bloom chipboard piece and finished it with a touch of Rock Candy distress stickles. I couldn't resist the fabulous new Twinklets Diamond Dust so I applied glue to the bottom half of the title and dusted with twinklets.

What I used:
Papers: Bo Bunny Sophie's Notebook, Autumn Leaves Sweet Whispers
Title and Journalling: AC Thickers - Jewelry Box, Carolee's Creations Adorn It tiny black.
Embellishments: buzz and bloom chipboard - arboretum: up the garden path, doodlebug braddies jubilee butterflies
Materials: Twinklets Diamond Dust, Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy, Versacolour inks
Tools: machine stitching, Martha Stewart border & corner punches - Loopy.

And here is a cute little card I did for the Colouring Chipboard with Watercolour Paints tutorial (clicky here to see that one...)

What I Used:
Scrapware Geisha Girls chipboard
Watercolour Pencils
Crate Paper Paper Doll Lizzie paper
Black and white Cardstock
My trusting little sewing machine.

Hope you like these tutorials! They were certainly fun doing them!

Stay tuned as I will be back in a couple of days with a sneak peek of my next card class I will be teaching in May....

AND a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our gorgeous little Ben.... he turns 7 tomorrow...*sigh* my baby is growing so so fast!!

Ciao Lovelies!
