Friday Flashback Redux: Bugs & Kisses

Here's a Snapdragon Stamps first:  I'm continuing with last week's Friday Flashback for an extra week.  Because it's my blog and I make the rules and I did a layout for Karyn's baby books using Bugs & Kisses and I think it's cute!


Since I no longer have to hoard Bermuda Bay cardstock, I used that as my page base color and I borrowed the other colors from the Sunny Garden DSP which I then didn't use because I wanted a pattern heavy on the Pear Pizzazz, so I used one from the Nursery Suite Specialty pack (all those DSPs are retired, by the way, and this turned into a really long sentence...no more caffeine for Christy).  The Daffodil Delight photo mats look darker in the pic but I promise IRL this is bright and fun!

And then since I finally got my brand new In Color DSP I had to make another Bugs & Kisses card, which will go to Karyn with her new completely finished baby books!  SO HAPPY those are done!!


I am kinda totally loving these colors together:  Garden Green (we need more Garden Green color challenges!), Crisp Cantaloupe (which is a perfect worm color!) and Coastal Cabana (which is just awesome for, like, everything!).  I've got a bit of Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Smoky Slate, and Crumb Cake in there too to complete the buggy menagerie.  My new In Color ink pads are SO juicy that a few of the bug images kinda bled a little bit, but it wasn't bad enough to make me try to redo the whole thing.

And today's card is based on the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:


Of course I made my card the normal A2 size instead of square but it said on the challenge that we could do that.  Plus I wanted more of the Crisp Cantaloupe polka dots to show up.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Hubs and I are going to see Man of Steel this afternoon.

So, so cute and perfect for boys -- snips and snails and puppy dog tails! And that's what little boys ARE made of!

LOVE this! I bought that set from eBay. 'Cause you're my muse. I'm a CLS-wannabe. :)
