Biker Dude

Hi and welcome !!!! The sun has finally come out in southern New Brunswick, it's still not very warm but at least it's a little brighter outside !! And SCHOOL'S OUT FOR THE SUMMER !!!! darn, now I have that song in my head!!!

This month Imaginisce teamed up with Echo Park (one of my favorites :) ) and we were asked to create anything we wanted  for today's blog post.

I love how well these two collections go together !!

This is the layout I created with these supplies, I did buy a sheet of the brown Dots and Strips from the other Echo Park well a few other colors (they rock !!!)

Imaginisce Fashion Accessories Mini Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome !!! You have probably arrived here from Robyn's blog  (Isn't she talented !!). I am so happy you could join us for this mini blog hop ! I would love to share with you these fun little hair accessories I created for my 5 year old niece (she's REALLY girlie-girlie). I was a little nervous about this assignment because being the mother of boys, I don't get to do girlie things too often ! 

These are some of the flowers I used for these clips and headbands. You can see the entire Imaginisce floral collections HERE.
The headbands come in a set of three.

Alligator clips

The Twist Daddies come in 3 sizes and are to be used with the i Top.

These were really easy to make, I just layered a few fabric flowers over the metal post of the alligator clip or headband and added one of the Twist Daddies covered with fabric ( I used portions of flowers).They just twist on!!! Then I added a bit of bling from the large assortment of crystals and gems found HERE .
and VOILĂ€ ....custom made hair accessories fit for a princess !!!

She really loved her accessories and put one in her hair right away and I saw her at the supermarket yesterday and she was wearing the purple made my day !!

Well, that's it for me today, thanks so much for visiting my blog ! You are now to hop on over to Erin's blog 
....she has something amazing to share with you !!!!!
Be sure to leave comments every blog you visit for a chance to win an i Top and Fashion Accessories bundle from Imaginisce !!!!

You melt my heart

Good morning scrappy friends, I'm off work today and going to my kids school BBQ for lunch, it's cloudy and cold (BRRRRR!!) and I'm sick with a cold too !!! Yay! should be fun LOL!!
I just wanted to quickly share my Upsy Daisy projects for this month.

                       You melt my heart
I love these photos of Felix picking daisies for me, he was 2 1/2.I used the Man About Town 2 collection for this project. I love the mix of greens and blues in this line.

For this next project, we were asked to use this ad as inspiration....

I chose to use the circle shapes for my layout of Felix with his grandma. I used the same paper line but with a dark background.

                         Petit Coquin
That it for me today :) have a great first day of summer to bundle up for the BBQ!!!(brrr)

Imaginisce June Challenge

June,already ?? Wow ! I'm so glad summer is here, it's been a reeeeeeally  looooooooooong winter !!! The challenge for this month at Imaginisce is to use this image from Pinterest as your inspiration and lyrics from a Cliff Richards song (see below) ! How fun is that !!!
Summer Holiday
We're all going on a summer holiday
no more working for a week or two.
Fun and laughter on our summer holiday,
no more worries for me or you,
for a week or two.

We're going where the sun shines brightly
we're going where the sea is blue.
we've all seen it on the movies,
now let's see if it's true.

Everybody has a summer holiday
doin' things they always wanted to
So we're going on a summer holiday,
to make our dreams come true
for me and you.
for me and you.

and the rules:
- Create a card, layout or off the page project using at least 75% of Imaginisce products.
- Use the delicious picture from Pinterest as your inspiration
- Somewhere on your project you must incorporate some of the lyrics of the Cliff Richard song, Summer holiday
- Upload your project using the Linkitz at the bottom of this post by Saturday, 25th June.
- Winner will take home their very own i-top with accessories to the value of $75 or current collections of their choice to the same value.

and what I came up with !!!

I mostly used supplies from the Happy Camper collection and  little bits from the Animal Crackers and Scooter's Vacation collections. I was inspired by the circle shapes of those yummy looking frosted cookies for this layout as well the "fun and laughter" lyrics from the song for my title and a wonderful sketch from Creative Scrappers !

I hope you'll play along and please go have a peek at what the rest of the team did with this fun challenge on the Imaginisce blog !!
