The Story of My Name & Ad Inspiration

There's a new challenge posted on the Noel Mignon Challenge Blog today, The Me, Myself & I challenge. For this one we were challenged to scrapbook about our names and any special stories behind them. It's not often I take the time to scrapbook about myself, so this was lots of fun!

I used the Playdate kit to create my page. I am in LOVE with the Jillibean Kraft cardstock included in the kits lately. I used the Bed of Roses Spritz by Shimmerz paints (one of my very favorite Spritz colors!) from the kit on the background.

Wondering how to get those delicious, giant drips? Simply shake up your bottle, then unscrew the mister. Take the mister out and use the tube as a "dropper" to place your drips exactly where you would like them. :)

I liked the way the background looked and didn't want to cover it up. I decided to stitch a border to contain my page elements where I would normally add a layer of paper. It worked out great and was a fun change of pace.

Head on over to the Noel Mignon Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team created. I hope you'll play along!

The second page I wanted to share with you today is a page I also a page I created using the Noel Mignon Playdate kit along with a sheet of Cosmo Cricket Coordinations cardstock as the background .

I used this Dr. Pepper Print Ad as my color and design inspiration.

Have a great week!
