Buzz and Bloom

Yeah.. I'm still alive.. hehe.. just being really really busy at the moment.. so not too much me-time unfortunately...

Buuutt.. this week Buzz and Bloom started introducing the new 2009 designteam on their blog! We've all been asked to create a layout to introduce ourself..and besides that we were able to play with some awesome Buzz and Bloom goodies!!! I decided to pick one of my favorite colorcombo's as well.

Here's a closer look...

Just can't get enough of these fun mirror shapes. In this case I've used the cute MIR Love & Kisses: XOX and I've wrapped some floss with a flower sequin around the shape. Then I've added a fun stickpin through the floss to give it a finished look.

And what about this cute birdie!! I fell totally in love with these acrylic shapes. I decided to pimp this white ACR Totally Too Tweet - Large birdie up a little bit. I've added a rhinestone to her eye..and with Diamond Glaze I've covered the wings with glitter.

I've created my title by using the CB ABC - Urban Alphabet (mini). I started with the blank chipboard shapes, then I've pained them all black with some Acrylic paint. The next step was adding some shiny Diamond Glaze to the letters and I've added some pink jewels to the Diamond Glaze as well.

Hey... and don't forget to check out this new awesome challenge blog (which we've started with a group of scrapbooking friends)!! We'll be posting challenges twice a month (including our own takes on it) and we'll randomly give away a fun price for each challenge! Just can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!! Sooo.. what are you waiting for... check out our BLOG!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.. I promiss to make a blog-round again soon.. I'm missing reading all of your blogs so much!!!

Your new challenge blog looks wonderful! Have fun with the B&B DT! Your first LO is already great!

Peggy-Sue said...

As usual totally lovely.
I saw your black cirkles several times now, and I simply need to know if you have done them yourself with a shapecutter/cutting tool/maschine or anything. And if the white dots are added later with a whitegel pen og you simply did buy thoose like that?
