Close up of all the embellishments! YUM!!! Here is one of my LOs I did last month for Helmar. Tons of different techniques on here.... check out my Tips & Tricks Tuedsay post to see all I have done.
And my favorite part of the LO.... spooooooky!
Another Flirtatious Kit/Helmar LO using the My Stamp Box stamps - SO FREAKING COOL!!! Their packaging/storage for the stamps is so cool! The stamps come with a CD case to hold the stamps. Here, I stamped the "SHE says". BTW, My Stamp Box is having a giveaway - check it out here. If I don't win the stamps, I hope you do ;)

One exciting thing has happened since I last blogged... so sad, just one - lol! Anyways, I will FINALLY be published in Memory Makers!!! Too bad it will be their last issue. Still exciting none the less.
Here are a few LOs I created with the Playtime Fun Kit at my last crop. This first one is very special to me since this picture is of the last Thanksgiving my mom and dad shared together. He passed away a few weeks later. They really were soul mates. I did use a few items from past kits on this one. You can check out the LO here with all the products listed.
And here we have my mother's day gift for my MIL :) Check it out here with all the products listed.
And my not-so-little-girl-anymore's first year of school! Click here for product info.

I can't wait for summer to be here and no more running around for dance, swim, preschool and other misc stuff!!! Just to the gym and back :) oh, and a few playdates too! Last Saturday was jam packed with fun! I'll write more and post pictures soon. It was SO much fun that I was sleeping by 8PM!!! Yes! 8pm - I was exhausted!!!! And I can't remember the last time I went to bed so early - lol!

Seems like it is so far away, but summer will come and go so fast like it always does. So it will be here before I know it!

Here is a close up of the embellishments:
And here is what I created with it:If you click on the image it will take you to the page that has a list of links to the products.
Also, starting this month- Specials for Kit Members (SKM). Every month there will be different items on discount for the people that have a yearly Kit Membership. This month you will receive a 30% discount on the Prima trays and all KI Memories Lace Cardstock! Woot woot!
Instructions for the tray:
First, I painted the Prima tray with Kaiser Paint and sprayed the heck out of it with Riptide Glimmer Mist - I LOVE this color!!!! Then I applied the paper using the Acid Free Glue by Helmar. I applied the Acid Free Glue directly onto the tray and spread it out using a foam brush. I made sure I didn't spread the glue to close to the edges so I could roll/distress the edges. Make sure you wash out your brush when you are done applying the paper ;) The Acid Free Glue does not dry immediately which gave me play time to make sure that my paper was centered... well, centered enough. I did have to pull the paper up a few times to readjust and it's still not perfect, but close enough. I continued to work on it even though the glue didn't dry completely.
So while the glue was drying I placed the alphabet add-on to the kit on, spelling "Becky's", to use as a mask. I sprayed Cherry Limeade Glimmer Mist over the letters and then took the letters off. By now the glue is set enough for me to distress the papers with Ink and paint and roll the edges.
Now, to embellish - Love this part! I added the alphabet first and even though they are adhesive backed I ALWAYS glue my alphas down with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
All the flowers are adhered with Liquid Scrap Dots to make them pop right off the tray. TIP: when working on something like this tray I would suggest that you stand it up so your work surface is horizontally flat. Before adhering the flowers I glittered 2 of them using the Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive - I sprayed the V2 on the flowers, let them sit for 5 minutes and then sprinkled on Stampendous glitter. Easy peasy! I also sprayed a few flowers with Pearl and Riptide Glimmer Mist - gosh, not like I didn't have enough sparkle already - lol
The Butterfly was also adhered using Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots. And the really cool thing about using the scrap dots is that I could tilt the butterfly.... now try pulling that one off using pop dots ;) haha, yep, take THAT pop dots!!!!!
I will be posting more scrappy stuff soon :)
It was beautiful outside today and I only had one kid! It was very refreshing to spend quality time with just one. I took Cali Bear outside for a bit to play and she had so much fun! It took her a few minutes to get used to walking on grass which was fun to watch ;)
This is her "Cali give me a smile" pose - she tilts her head, smiles and closes her eyes :)
She got dirty. She even tried to eat grass that she spit out, that's what is on her face - lolbecbeck out.
