Friday Core'dinations Intro

Happy Friday!

Are you ready for the weekend?  Oh man Oh man am I!!  This has been one long week!  I can't wait.  We don't have much on our agenda this weekend but we do have a fun local little festival.  The boys always love it so I can't wait.  I also want to get in some crafty time.  I would love this weekend to create just for me.  I am a bit ahead of schedule on DT work and I have had this idea in my head for a layout that I want to get done of my little one on vacation last year.  I splurged and bought a couple sheets of Fancy Pants paper for this layout.  Fingers crossed I can work on it!!

Today is a big day for me.  It is my introduction on the Core'dinations blog (HERE!)  Our assignment was to create a layout that represented you.  I knew exactly what I wanted to make!  I picked my favorite photo of me and I love the colors in the photo so I picked some awesome cardstock that matched the photo and then picked out some of my fave papers from  Jillibean.  I then got out my Silhouette and made speech bubbles and put in a noun that describes me. 

I really had fun with then embellishing this layout.  I am totally addicted to wood veneer so I couldn't create a layout about me if I didn't include it- so yes, I went a little crazy with it but it was so much fun.  I also included a flair badge because I love flair!!! and then I included the feather for fun.  I love to have fun with my craft. 

For my techniques with the Core cardstock I embossed and sanded it to give it a bit of a distressed look.  I also sanded my title. 
cardstock- Core'dinations
alphabet stickers- jillibean soup
pattern paper- jillibean soup
wood veneer- freckled fawn, studio calico
flair- a flair for buttons
feather- bella blvd. 

Now here is the fun part!!!!!! Core'dinations is giving a a paper pack of their awesome cardstock EVERY day that they are announcing the  design team.  All you have to do is head over HERE and leave a comment and you have the chance to win!  How easy is that?  Plus I would love it if you stopped by to say hi!  Thanks so much!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back next week with all new projects.  Some Odd Girl will be having their clear stamp release and let me just say the stamps are sooooo much fun.  I will see you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty weekend.
