OH So Sweet Saturated Canary.. Canary Love

I guess by now most of you know.......... I made the Saturated Canary Guest Design Team for the next 3 months!!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!! I truly love Krista Smith's sweet adorable images.  This is Canary Love and Krista is giving her away on her personal blog to all her followers and those you are signed up for her Newsletter.  Don't worry you can still become a follower and sign up for her new letter HERE.  please read her blog to see just how you can get her for yourself.  This is a little Valentine's gift from Krista.

I printed her out thinking I was going to make a card, but then decided to print her bigger and make her into a Journal book.  I love making Journal books and all my friends , oh and Jazmine my youngest daughter love's getting them.  I had to fight, well not really with Jazmine as she wanted this for herself. I had to break her heart when I told her no that it was for Allyson.. one of my dear friends.  Her birthday was Sunday and I am way behind making her gifts and shopping for her presents. With Destiny's 18th birthday being this past Friday, I didn't do any shopping.  Not even for her yet, but I will probably just give her money to go on a new pair of Buckle jeans.  She loves that brand, but they are way too expensive for me at $85 to $120 a pair. So I guess I will pay for one leg of

I just used a comp. notebook and cover it with some K&Company paper.  I know I used pastel colors, not something I use often, but I really thought this sweet little girl needed to be in pastels. I distressed the edged of the papers and added some distressing ink in Tea Dye.  I cut her out using a Creative Memories Heart shape cutter.  The image was stamped on Mohawk Color Copy 98 100 lb bright white , Extra Smooth Cover Card Stock and you can find it HERE.  It's a lot cheaper than most papers and I LOVE IT.  It is what I use all the time.  I tried the Copic Xpress-It paper and for the way I color I don't like it.  I have been using this paper(the Mohawk) for over a year now and I have tried all kinds of paper and this is my favorite.

A lot of people ask me what I use, so I wanted to share it with all of you.

I added some Wild Orchid Crafts Roses.  The pink center flower is by Recollections at Michael's Crafts. I added some white trim and inked it with some Tea Rose Distressing Inks

I also added a big Making Memories Chipboard letter A and had to sit this cute little butterfly on the A.

I finished it off with some BIG pink ribbon.  I have a HUGE spool of this stuff.

I colored Canary Love with Copics and then used Chalk on the background.
Here are the colors I used to color her.
Skin: YR0000,YR000, YR12 and E11 
Hair: E50,E51,E53,E55,YR20
Clothes: R20,RV10,RV0000

I hope you love my first creation a a Guest with Saturated Canary. Here is link to more of her adorable images you can purchase.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

Oh and today is my son's 11th birthday.  Happy Birthday BAILEY!!!! Momma, love you!!!
