Alaska bound.....

Heidi Swapp ~ Petaloo Color Me Crazy blooms and
Altered Art Week....

I would have to say...I am in HEAVEN!! 
Next month, I am going on a ONCE IN A LIFETIME
adventure with my family....

I had been wanting to make a mini book
to take with me to document the trip and
when I saw the GORGEOUS
Heidi Swapp ~ Vintage Chic Collection
with all it's goodies,
I just knew....this was the time!!!


 I had SOOO MUCH fun working with
the Heidi Swapp ~ Color Shine!!
I was spraying EVERYTHING!!


I stamped on the Color Magic Zig Zag Ribbon with
the Jump Rope Stamp by Unity.
Then, I spritzed the fabric banner away.
When it was dry I folded pleats in
banner, then embellished it with Pearl Pen Dots
and some glitter.


I spritzed the Resist Chipboard Alphas with the
Bronze ~ Color Shine.
Then I added Vintage Chic Letters over
the chippies.


Then the REAL FUN BEGAN......
Coloring the Color Me Crazy
Darjeeling flowersAssorted foliage and
Fancy Corner Chippie!!!
I added a few Paprika ~ Mini Daises
as an accent.


Can I just say....I love how the CMC ~ Darjeeling
flowers took the color.
I spritzed the large flower with the
Aqua ~ Color Shine then
applied the Bronzer ~ Color Shine with a paintbrush.
To help the colors bleed together I
spritzed it with water
(the ulitmate color mover!!)

I hope you enjoyed my Altered Art Mini Album!!
I do hope you pull out some of your scrappy
goodies and play along with us...
for the Color Me Crazy Month!!

This is just BEAUTIFUL Lynne! My LSS is getting these CMC flowers in and I can't wait after seeing what you do with them. Have a wonderful holiday! I have friends who have gone twice now and say they had the best time ever.

Gorgeous! Have been on 2 cruises to Alaska and loved them both, even though on one we were shipwrecked and the Coast Guard had to step in via every imaginable transportation device they have in their hands. the sites are just lovely - took a helicopter ride - oh my heavens!

You have a super good time on your adventure and I hope you share the inside of this fantastic journal when you come home!! I love what you have done here - would like to try some of your techniques. Tell me, did you bind your own journal and if so what did you use? Thanks Sugar -

Stunningly beautiful. It'll have to be a really great trip to be worthy of this amazing album - I'm sure it will be!
