Pretty Palette # 24 My Time Made Easy




Go Me! Go Me!




Hello all blogging friends! I have some great news to share...I have been invited to become a Pretty Palette Member of My Time Made Easy's Design Team! (See side bar on left) It is an honor to be a part of this design team and I want to thank Lauren Meader and Lisa Kind for asking me to become a member of such a wonderful group of talented designers!

First off, you can tell that I need some practice with posting. I have not the slightest idea why the Palette above did not come out bigger...however, it is 11:00 p.m. and I am not about to go about trying to change it now. I am quite certain that you all get the "drift" of the palette though! Thank you for understanding my sleepiness :)

This image is called "Bold Botanicals." It caught my attention because I love images of flowers! The sentiment is from "Bee Loved" and the papers are all from "Fresh Cut Expressions Collection - 2." I have to tell you that this is going to be a fun adventure for me, because going to MTME's shop and picking out the digital stamps (like this one) and then going to pick out the gorgeous papers is too much fun! Within minutes I have what I ordered and can start playing immediately...that is the best!!! There are so many images and so many beautiful designer papers that it is really hard to pick just one. I have ordered many times from Lauren's Shop. She has templates that are to die for. I will be posting some of those as well in the future! Some of the cutest little boxes, purses, teapots, cakes, etc...I could go on and on! I colored the image with my Copic Markers and sponged the background with Momento Green Sprout and from the dollar bin at Michaels I found the cutest little yellow stamp pad that had no name...The ribbon is from stash and the tiny bling is actually "nail art."

I hope you like my first post with this Design Team....I look forward to posting more. Thank you for your visits and for all of the nice comments! And, again, thank you MTME for allowing me to be on such a great team!!!
