Summer Beauty

Though summer's end is drawing nearer, there is still so much beauty to behold. Gorgeous, lush colors abound in nature's palette & the "Summer Beauty" ATC swap over at Red Lead was callin' my name! Pop on over to their blog & check out all of the wonderfulness going on there (a link is included in my Blog List over on the right sidebar). Images on these 5 ATC's I created for the swap are from Red Lead's "Summer Beauty" collage sheets & also a couple from ArtChix Studio. Happy summer Sunday to you all!

ArtChix Sisters Dreambox

Hi everyone~

I'm very excited to show you my dreambox created for a swap I'm taking part in at the ArtChix Sister Site Yahoo group. I've never done a dreambox before & have wanted to for quite awhile so this was my perfect opportunity to jump in & create one. The partner I'm swapping with likes fairies and so that is the theme for my creation. I really like how it turned out and can't wait to make another one right away! Have a groovy day, all!

Close-up of the embellie on top; also, I outlined the dreambox in Diamond Stickles & used that to also enhance the dots that are embossed already into the tin dreambox (dreambox plus fairy image & gates inside are from ArtChix Studio, one of my most fave on-line stores ever!).

The doors open to reveal a tiny, yet mighty fairy queen in her glittery, flowered lair. I hope my swap partner enjoys this creation~I had such fun making it for her!

Here is my entry for the CCC #10, hosted by Linda @ Studio L3 ( This challenge is all about Distress Stickles~oh how I love them so! I used Broken China, Peeled Paint & Spiced Marmalade to give the Grungeboard butterfly gobs of pizzaz! Take a minute to peek at Linda's blog for the deets; you'll be glad you did!
