Family Fun!

layered Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze, White, Early Espresso and a sheet from the Greenhouse Gala ds. The Cajun Craze layer was run through the BS in the Textured Impressions Perfect Polka Dots folder. The camper was watercolored, cut out and popped-up with Dimensionals.  The 'grass' was made by snipping parallel cuts into a strip of Pear Pizzazz, then cutting the top of each 'blade' diagonally to give it texture.

Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake!!

Okay, I love Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake together! The color saturation of Cherry Cobbler is unbelievable. The Crumb Cake layer was color embossed with Crumb Cake on the  Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions folder. The tag was torn from the Newsprint ds and the smaller Cherry Cobbler tag was cut using the scallop rectangle Clearlit.  I also sprayed the embossed layer and the fruit image with both Gold and Log Cabin Smooch Spray.
