Toot on the Water...and Fire in the Sky...

Hi everyone!

No real significance to the title, I just love Deep Purple. :P I hope y'all had a great weekend! Things have been nuts around here lately but I managed to squeeze some creative time in there somewhere! :D I created this layout of Toot, she loves to take a bath and generally play in water no matter where it is, even if it's in the dog's water bowl. *sigh* But this picture is of her in the bath:

The paper is Beach House from the Fancy Pants Summer Soiree line. I also used three different pieces of punchinella behind the title from Gauche Alchemy's Punchinella Variety Pack.

The title was created with Thickers (I would never want to live in a world without Thickers. *dreamy sigh*) but I had a problem with the title blending into the background. Bah. So I just accented the letters with Stickles.

Everything else comes from the following Gauche Alchemy Mixed Media Color Kits: Wedding Night, Envy, Banana Hammock and Blue Streak. I love how versatile these kits are, you can use them in huge mixed media projects or on smaller scale scrapbook layouts. I love them!

More things are in the works but for now, this is what I got. LOL :D What did you do this weekend?

  18. Everytime you talk about Toot I get the Toot Sweet song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang stuck in my head for hours. I wouldn't mind but I get yelled at for singing it randomly all round the house then.

    This is gorgeous Maggi :P I love what you did with the punchinella. I tried it once, couldn't get it to stick so threw it on the flloor where it promptly stuck to the carpet! We have never spoken since!

    This weekend was a frenzy of tidying - the kids, Craigs and the dogs were in fear of their lives. But hey. Now I have time to come chat to you so it was all worth it :P
