Hello Everyone and welcome to week 30!
Can you believe that next week is August?!!!! Whew, the summer is flying by.
I decided to update my planner and give it a fresh, new look. I have so many beautiful stamps, papers and ephemera that I haven't used in ages so I brushed the dust off and put them to work!

I have become a huge watercolor fan in the last few months. Not since elementary school have I had such fun with paints. I have always loved acrylics, but I think I have a new favorite!
I have been using Prima's Watercolor Pencils which offer beautiful, pigment filled colors. I also love the tin that stores the pencils.

Prima has been sharing sneak peeks of their new collections and I am loving the new "Sweet Peppermint" collection and new holiday trims. I used the snowglobe stamp and die set to create the focal point of my card. Using the snowglobe die I created a window to use as a shaker which I filled with sequins and glitter.

The new Rossi Belle collection has an absolutely gorgeous color palette and imagery which I used as inspiration for my card design. I added loads of dimension to my card using new Prima flowers and sweet embellishments from the “Rossi Belle” collection.

I am using Day 12 of the 30 Day Watercolor Challenge as my inspiration. This page is from the Watercolor Coloring Book - 8x10. I used Watercolor Confections - Decadent Pies and Watercolor Pencils - The Basics. I added a different quote to the center of my page "Believe You Can and Your're Halfway There"

The new Julie Nutting stamps offer beautiful range of Halloween themed images. I used the “Bootiful” cling stamp to serve as the focal point of my mixed media tag. Her dress was cut from paper in the new Rossi Belle collection.

For all of us who love shaker cards, you will love the new dies from Prima that allow you to create your own confetti. Here is a look at a fun shaker card I created using the new "Flowers" Confetti die.

It's been a while since I played along with the ladies over at the Mojo Monday challenge site. I found time in the day to create a bright and cheerful card using the current sketch.
I flipped the sketch upside down to create my card.....
