Welcome back!! Have you entered my mini Halloween themed RAK yet?? No? Run.....I have included one of my all-time faves in that kit!!! Go here, and leave your comment....but you only have til October 15th!! Yeah, I know, it's at the top of my blog......LOL
Okay, so my surprise? Well, remember the Halloween Circle Card I made for I Am Roses......well I won the September Challenge with it!! I am totally stoked about this!! This is my second time winning one of their challenges!!! Oh, and I just received the RAK from the last challenge I won...here's a pic of all of the goodies included.....
Gorgeous, gorgeous flowers!! If you haven't used IAR's flowers, you need to try them...you'll fall in love! I promise. Oh, and they have a blog hop going on right now......go here to check it out......here's a preview of what you can win....
My SIL Mike and DGS Mason, while hiking in the mountains near their home in El Paso, Texas. It's one of their fave pastimes. And yes, Mason climbs up and comes back down, without being carried!! So proud of that little guy!!!
Gorgeous papers are from Fabscraps. Although my base is made with a Pink Paislee paper from one of their Christmas collections. The top pp was cut a bit smaller, and then water distressed to curl and smoosh the edges, and then distressed more with DI in Rusty Hinge. There's a bit of burlap peeking out from behind the distressed paper. I added lots of layers, including a paper bag, before adding my matted pics. There's lots of Timmy products here, tickets, gears, spinners, etc. I wanted more of a country feel to this LO, so I added some twine, which I just layed down, and glued in place. The chipboard stickers are from Prima. The larger flowers are Petaloo, the blue spray is from Prima, and the smaller brown cherry blossoms are from I Am Roses.
The little wood cactus chippy is from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I didn't paint it, it just so happens that the back side was black....too cool!! I did add a bit of Rusty Hinge DI to the edges of it. The leaves, also from IAR were dunked in Pumice Stone Distress Stain, and then spritzed with water....you end up with a pretty cool variegated effect.
That's it for today. Be sure to enter my RAK and don't forget the IAR Blog Hop!!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
