Cooling Down With City Crafter

July...
that takes some "Cooling Down" time, and I'm joining the girls at City Crafter Challenge Blog this week as Guest Designer and doing just that. Our  hostess, Wendy, is calling for projects using this gorgeous palette of cool colors.


I thought I'd go with a layout...


My "cool" colors
come from the help of Pink Paislee's Hope Chest collection that I bought in Virginia at Scrapdoodles. I wanted to remember that time... the newness of a unfamiliar store, the just released papers I had yet to see, the friendly ladies behind the counter. Just maybe this layout will bring that all back to me as time goes by.


My photo is mounted
on some Prima packaging and the tag is made from another one. The wood button is from Prima. 


The lace is from Surplus City.
The doily is cut with Alterations Distressed Doily die.


I fussy cut the
leaves and roses and popped them up with 3-D foam adhesive. 


I tinted Golden molding
paste with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and applied it using Crafters Workshop Confetti stencil. Then splattered randomly with Lindy's Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise Flat Fabio spray.


The flourish is the piece
here that I hadn't used and has been laying on my desk patiently waiting for a home. It now has one under the I Am Roses flowers.


I also tinted some
cheesecloth with the PFDI and tucked it under the flowers. The bliss stick pin is from my stash. I fussy cut the butterfly from a sheet of Graphic 45 DP.


The zipper is from Prima.

Don't forget to stop by
the City Crafters Blog and check out all the projects the girls have created for you. Then create something beautiful yourself and enter. I'll look for you there.

Thanks for stopping by!
