Blogalong 24 Post In 28 Days

The Blogalong with Effy Wild has been fantastic!  First of I created a blog on Aug. 3rd!  Then I did my first u tube video on Aug. 12th!  And I have done 24 blogs in 28 days!  I was so afraid I would create this blog and only give it a try a couple of times and quit.  I thank Effy Wild sooo much for creating this experience for me, and all of you for keeping me going.  Reading your blogs have kept me inspired to do this myself.  Thank you.

OK now I am going to share my BOM/BOD spread with you.

Image

This is my BOM spread for Week 9.  I loved everything about doing this!  It brought back happy memories of a day festival I went to in 2009. 

 

 

Image

We danced with drums.  I should have put a little drum in her hand like the one I purchased at the time.  Oh well.  She is happy dancing the way she is.  🙂

Image

I really liked the idea of music notes being on the page, so I added my music note washi tape.  Different then Effy’s, but music notes just the same.

Here is my BOD spread

Image

Yes I know.  I spelled Wednesday wrong.  Decided to just leave it that way.

Image

The flowers are I die-cut from K&C Company that I purchased.  Just love them. 🙂  Then I used a stamp for my swirls and colored them in.

Image

The butterfly is from the same set of die-cuts.  Love butterflies!

Image

Loved the way this spread turned out.  Am very happy with it.  Haven’t done the writing in this, but will try to finish that part today.

Thank you all for going on this blogalong journey with me.  I will continue to read your blogs and to blog myself. 

Sending hugs and smiles! 

P.S.  I competed this blog this morning, only to have it to refuse to post.  So I had to redo the whole thing all over again.  I think I know what I did wrong.  So this should post.  Wish me luck  🙂

    What beautiful pages! Your dancing girl is wonderful! Your shading under the tape is so well done that it looks 3D!
    The use of flourish stamps instead of doodling on your second spread is truly inspired! I was a little nervous because Effy’s doodling was so gorgeous!!! But I have lots of flourish stamps I can use! Thanks for the idea! 😀 ❤

      Yah. Never even occurred to me to try to do what Effy doodled! Wow! That is insane good! I could have done my own doodles…but nothing like that, so thought stamps were a good substitute.
