Pixies - ColourQ #183

Happy Wednesday Peeps!
Is it vacation time yet?
I spent the entire beautiful afternoon sorting and 
totaling receipts, working on my taxes. Bleh. 

I think it is time to move on to scrappy endeavors, don't you?

Since it is Tuesday there is a new palette up at ColourQ
This weeks colors were right up my alley - pinks and yellow!

My papers are MME - a mix of old an newer papers and embellishments. 
My photo mat and the pieces behind the photo were all
cut from my MME 6X6 stacks - love those!
For the journal strips in the corner, I cut up and MME journal card.
I have used a mix of brads and sticker embellishments from from the Lost and Found lines. 
The large flower is from Prima, chipboard butterfly from Technique Tuesday.
I used my Martha Stewart and EK Success Punches.
My butterflies were sprayed with Tsukineko Fireworks and edged with Rose Metal Gelatos®.
I scattered my brads around the page, and I got some great use out of the Stampin' Up Hexagon punches I picked up at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for $2 bucks! Best sale ever!!
 I used my Tsukineko and CTMH inks, and my sewing machine. I also threw
 in a couple of Pink Paisley embellies and some bling.

Here is a look at this weeks yummy palette
 be sure to hop over to the blog to check out the fabulous projects

I used the fabulous sketch at My Mind'e Eye for my layout
here's a look
I moved my journaling around and added a couple of extra layers
but other than that I stayed pretty true to the sketch.

    PS. When I noticed that when I hovered over your images a "pin it" option was available, I went nuts trying to find where the widget came from. I literally have spent my entire evening updating my blog here and there because I was so inspired by the way your blog is set up (wide margins, pin it button, and easy to look through sidebar). I am spent! LOL. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
