WELCOME TO DAY #1 OF OUR BLOG HOP...

     Good Morning Pinquettes! Mary here and welcome to everyone's favorite theme Disney!!! If you have come from Shelley's  then you are in the right spot.If not then you want to start at the beginning HERE.
     Are you ready to see my project? We have been to Disney World many times so it is about time I scrap some of these pictures. The beautiful swirl flowers Jess sent me fit perfectly in this layout. So, here we go:

     
        This is probably one of the quickest layouts I have ever done. I just grabbed my pics and used the scalloped circle spellbinders and used them to cut the pictures and the layers of matting. I used a scrap piece of ribbon that was hanging around on my craft table (I never throw anything out, lol). This was a great way to to connect the 2 photos. Let's take a look at the Pinque Peacock Splendid Swirl flower and how I used it on this layout:
     Isn't this beautiful? I had a premade set of Snow White from Michaels and it had some cute jewels so I just stuck one in the center of the flower. Love the look of this. I also used one of the cute fabric covered buttons for the opposite side of the layout. 

     
     This was perfect so show Alexis love of the Princesses. Again I used some of the premades to scatter the flowers throughout the layout. To finish it all off I did some doodling around the edges and also some "grass" under Snow White so she had something to stand on!

     I am committed to using up supplies I already have so these rhinestone pieces were the first thing that came to mind with this layout. I also used a metal frame rather than a journal tag to complete the project.
     Although I have showed you how I used the Pinque Peacock supplies for this Disney layout, I hope you can see how useful they are no matter what project you are creating.
     Now its time to hop on over to Kimberly's and see what she has to wow you with!!!!

Touch A Truck LayOut



Cover Photo 
     Welcome Ladies! I hope you all had a great 4th of July. Boy it sure is hot out! We jumped from a cold winter to a wet cold spring and now the heat is baking us, geez. If you just came from Pinque Peacock's Blog then you know I have a surprise element to share but, you'll have to wait 'til the last pic, lol.
     In honor of the Fourth I am doing a Red, White and Blue theme and these pics are fabulous to share with you. Our town recently had a fund raise and it was called Touch A Truck. The entrance fee was $5 or a maximum of $20/family. They had all kinds of trucks: fire engines, ambulances, garbage trucks, bulldozers, steam shovels, a police cruiser and even the portable dog grooming van! The children were allowed to climb in and really take a look, blast the sirens and turn on the lights. One of the trucks was a cement mixer and, since their grandfather works for the company, they just had to take a peek.
     What caught my eye was the graphics on the cement mixer "We Support Our Troops". I love when a company shows their Patriotism and also that this is year round, all the time, no matter what the job. I knew some how I would have to do my Patriotic duty and share it with you as well. What better time than our celebration of Freedom. Isn't this Pinque Peacock Layered Garden Beauty flower the best on this layout? 
     I happened to be @ Michaels looking for any stickers or embellishments with trucks when I spotted this rubber stamp. I thought this was perfect for this layout since we all took the time to enjoy this day. There was one problem. When I inked it some of the white pigment plopped itself where I did not want it to be. I really did not want to stamp another so I decided to go with the flow. I went with the stars that were on the truck and used some acryllic stars I had knowing that my PP button would be the highlight. It sure is!!!
     So I thought ok, this is not completely Patriotic but why not add some stripes with washi tape?Now I wanted to fill some blank space in the upper left hand corner so I used a Cuttlebug folder with stars. I used Don Juan for the font cut @ 1" shadow feature. I cut one set with white and one with blue and offset them when I glued them down.Are you ready for the whole layout?
      Look at those cuties driving the truck! Needless to say the kids had a blast (and so did we). Wait, I'm missing something!!! Remember I went to Michaels looking for some sort of truck embellishment? Well, I should have checked with Jessica @ Pinque Peacock first. Guess what she is working on....
     Yup, truck buttons! She even did a cement mixer one for me. You can find a collection of truck covered buttons in the "Dig This" section. NOW my layout is complete. So here is a tip for you: if you need something special for the perfect touch on your project check with The Pinque Peacock Store FIRST!!!!!! You can find the link HERE.
     Today is also the last day of the 700 FB Fans Sale so be sure to hop on over now.
