January Round Robin at Scraps of Darkness

From the Scraps of Darkness "A Long December" kit.  This is my Round Robin LO, following the talented Monica and Kathy this month.  I painted the DA chippies with TH acrylic white, embossed in white and added a little light blue bling.  The flower vines are from Cheery lynn and the leaves are spellbinders dies.  I also added some texture with modeling paste and the tile mask.  Hope everyone has a magical week and rides the storms out in this round that's headed in tuesday.  Hugs to all, J

January Paper Mixing Bowl Reveal!

It's reveal day at The Paper Mixing Bowl and here is the recipe card for the month, isn't it fun!!  I loved the color mix and "utensils" for this challenge.  So here is what I came up with, hope you like!  If you would like to play along visit  We would love to see your creations and if you win one of the top three spots you can grab a badge for your blog to show off your talents!
A picture of my sweet Samuel on the beach in St. Petersburg, Florida.  This was his first experience with the ocean and was so hesitant at first.  Once he got in there was no stopping him.

I dug into my stash and found a Scraps of Darkness kit (Escape) from January of 2012 that I never touched with the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  They get me every year and I get nothing done creatively!  The G45 papers were a perfect fit with the recipe and photo I had.

I would love to see you all participate in the challenge for this month, it is gorgeous and can be interpreted in so many ways,  This is my first official design team reveal and I am happy and honored to be part of The Paper Mixing Bowl for this term, hope to see you all there!

Here I have clustered the flower with a couple of flourishes from Cheery Lane and Leaves from Holtz.  In  addition I threw in some sea shells, a silver dollar and a G45 chipboard accent from the Escape kit to finish off the requirements of the piece.  Thanks for looking and hope you play along!   Hugs, Jenny
