Color Me Daisy Reveal

**caution another long post ahead**

This month Color Me Daisy had a main kit, "Happiness" and also 2 Pink Paislee mini kits, Captivating and Fetching. I was so excited that I got to play with 2 of the three kits! Thank you so much Michelle!

From the Main kit:
Washing Snails

Google-y eyes are not included in the kit, but I LOVE this chipboard snail!
The kit also comes with a chipboard dragonfly, 2 butterflies, and a ladybug.
I'll be using these soon! ;)

Not the right color thickers? Customize them with stickles! That's what I did for both the kite and the alphabet thickers. The kite is also backed with a Maya Road sheer.

With the Pink Paislee Captivating kit:
Her Spicy Side

I LOOOVE this photo of Caroline. It's just hilarious to me! I actually didn't take it, but our friend Holly Harnsberger did. She gets C to pose in all kinds of funny and silly poses. Not sure what the prompt was here but I know that C really wasn't angry, just posing. Can you guess where she's seen that pose before?! lol!

I tried a paper pleating technique. I also used some brown Pixee glitter. Who knew brown glitter would be so pretty?!

The main photo section is popped up off the page almost a half inch to make room for the paper pleating along the bottom edge.

"Home is where you hang your heart" a mixed media mini album

Front cover (acrylic)

No.6240 (chipboard)

"Welcome home"

"...to the everyday..." (acrylic):

"and the decorated..." (acrylic):

"Where we won't forget..." (chipboard):

"but still make memories..."

"HOME. It's where we...LIVE."

I made this mini album using the supplies from the Pink Paislee sticker book. I used the acrylic front "cover" and then the chipboard back "cover" and the spiral binding. To make it the smaller size I wanted, I just cut the acrylic and chipboard in half making them approx. 5 1/2" in length. The front cover of my mini is acrylic, as well as one of the pages inside it. The rest of chipboard pages. All the embellishments come with the CMD mini kit, both the Pink Paislee ones and all the others I used.

One last thing, don't forget that this month CMD is hosting their "Get Happy" month long crop. You can find it here. AND they're giving away "A RAK-a-day in the Month of May" on their blog. All you have to do is leave a comment and you could win a prize! Find the CMD blog here.
