Hello again my crafty peeps! Told ya I'd be back again didn't I? Although I said I'd share a Halloween LO, I decided to save that one to show in a few days & share this one instead...mostly cause its so much fun & I just really like it! I was totally inspired to do a LO like this by a recent page I seen in Scrapbook Trends. I loved the blocked style of that LO & the similar use of some stick pins. I decided to go from there & make it my own, including scrapping about my love of iced mochas...especially the ones from Taco Bell. Seriously, have you tried those yet? They are amazing; maybe cause they use Seattle's Best coffee, I don't know. I just know that me & the kiddo are always craving one!
I was also inspired to create this LO by the current challenge over at True XoXo to use an "instagram" type feature on your photo. I used a combo of Picnik & Photoshop on mine and really love how it turned out. The retro effect you can achieve with Picnik is seriously fun y'all & you should totally try it if you haven't! And, you should definitely check out True XoXo (click here!) because they have some terrific challenges & some great designers too. The inspiration over there is really fabulous and they encourage you to scraplift their DT's ideas...which is where I was inspired to use my mists, as well as the vintage feel of the Odds & Ends papers!
