You Color My World

July's free stamp of the month challenge at Delightful Inspiration is over at midnight tomorrow. I'm certainly late this month. Anyway, the digi for this month is Painting Ladybug. It is a cute digi and I enjoyed coloring it. The color possibilities were endless, however, I decided to make it into my SSSD August Color of the Month card. The colors for August are Gumball Green, Melon Mambo and So Saffron.

After coloring with my SU pens, I applied SU Candy Dots in Melon Mambo, So Saffron and Garden Green. I didn't have Gumball Green in the dots.  I used Black Diamond Stickles on the ladybug's back. For the first time in several years, I used my QuicKutz mini alpha dies, CK Typist font.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care

Ford's Theater

We finally made it to Ford's Theater in Washington DC. It was quite interesting. Before we even left home, Jeffery had put Ford's Theater and the Petersen House on our "to see" list. We didn't get to it until our last trip into Washington DC by ourselves. We rode the Metro into Washington and our Metro trips were adventures of their own, but I digress. While we took lots of pictures in the Theater and at the Petersen House, not many get onto the scrapbook pages. 

These are the first pages I have done in a long time that include journaling. While I had planned on putting pages together of our trip to VA and surrounding areas, a forum at SCS had a challenge to make a vacation page. No notoriety, no prize, just satisfaction. Whoopee! I did it and on time.

Hope you like my pages. Thanks for stopping by. Take care
