Scrapbook Pages~A Rubbernecker Sale, and Blog Candy Winner

I made this page for my daughter Katie to remember her fun day tubing at the lake with her friends.  I started with a 12 x 12 white card stock.  I cut a curvy  mask  out of  scrap paper. I use both pieces when I do this type masking.  I masked the bottom of and sponged Adirondack Cloudy Blue then Weathered Wood Distress ink.  Then I used the opposite mask and masked the top off and sponged Memento Desert Sand and Toffee Crunch.  I inked up Rubbernecker's Floral #6~16450 
with Memento Olive Green and stamped it a few times on each side of the page.  Then stamped some sand and weeds from Kittie Kits Beach Master~16756 in Memento Toffee Crunch and went over some of the weeds with a Memento Olive Green Marker.

  I sponged some Toffee Crunch here and there to and under the Florals #6 to create a little more dimension.

 I stamped "lake fun" on Twill tape in memento Green Olive with Rubbernecker's Alphabet Set#1-15625 and added a couple of SU star brads and an anchor charm hung with hemp twine.

This second page is my sweet niece Stella that has me baking as much as when my own kids were little.  Every day she is at my house she wants to bake something.  It's as if every day is a celebration! I am sure it is just to have the opportunity to lick the bowl clean! Sorry for the camera glare, I could not get a good picture no matter how hard I tried.
I used Rubbernecker's Party-Time Set-15524 to do this page.  a cake colored with Love Letter and Rich Cocoa Memento markers and covered with Cinnamon and Stardust Stickles and a red button for a cherry on top. Then popped up over chocolate grosgrain ribbon.  then a simple sentiment that just says it all.  the patterned paper is from CTMH.

I added a few more red and brown random buttons and added some cinnamon Stickles to them.

I have exiting news ..... Rubbernecker.com is having a huge SALE!!!  Be sure  and check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!
