Mid Month Reveal at Scrap Around the World {August 2014 Challenge 16 by Marilyn Rivera} & Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang {August 2014 color challenge}

Hello everyone & welcome to challenge 16, hosted by Marilyn Rivera, from the USA!
This is such a amazing mood board by my sweet friend Marilyn Rivera look at all the great pictures you can work with wow I was totally inspired by the gold & teal dresses and that fiveties touch of the middle picture below!

So this is my take on the mood board:
I used some gorgeous papers by Graphic 45 & beautiful lace and flowers by Tresors de Luxe 

A little closer:

I also used some of Lindy's Stamp Gang  sprays because with this layout I want to enter their monthly challenge!
I was inspired by the pink & blue colors in the palette.

 I don't own that much sprays & embossing powders.....that hugh flower with the pearl in the middle I made myself using the Starburst Creme Brulee Cream {in love with that one}
I also used
-  Glitz Spritz Sunset Pink
- Starburst Tiffany Lou Blue
- Starburst Cotton Candy Pink

This is the color palette

Two Cards for Kraft Bags week at ***BoBunny***

Hi everyone, 
Today I would like to share with you two cards I've created for the magnificent BoBunny I still feel very blessed to be on this wonderful team with so many lovely products.
My cards:

August You Make Me Smile 

My favorite month is the month August it's almost always good weather which I really love!
Here I used the whole Kraft Gift Bag plain as the base off my card it's a card of 7,6 inch by 5,7 inch so that's kind off hugh for a card. I love layering my cards so here I have about nine layers including the doily.
I can't get enough off  "The Avenues" collection so for this card it's all The Avenues & Kraft Gift Bag. On my last vacation trip about 2 weeks ago I went to a local scrapbook store and found some off that papers that where sold out at where I I was very pleased and bought them all *grin*
BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Dot, Clocks, Treasures/The Avenues
Doilies: Small Doilies
Brads: The Avenues
Jewels: The Avenues
Blossoms: Natural Earth Zinnia, Blush Dahlia
Misc Me Cardstock Sticker: The Avenues
Kraft Gift Bag: Music Notes, Plain
Kraft Wood: Shapes Elegant

Thank You 
For my second card I thought why not make my own flowers out off Kraft Gift Bags. I just separated the bags and cut out five circles cute the edges with a scissor sprayed them with water & shine glimmer mist to give it a sparkle! Then I wrinkled them and layered them on top of each other. I had so much fun!
This card is also huge, don't you just love the flowers BoBunny offers I never seem to have enough off them. For this card I used the pretty blues in the "Somewhere In Time" collection.
BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Evening Mist, Antiquity, Chrononaut/Somewhere In Time
6 x 6 Paper Pad: Somewhere In Time
Double Dot Paper: Licorice
Brads: Somewhere In Time
Jewels: Somewhere In Time
Blossoms: Denim Blue Pansy
