capture the MOMENT 55

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great week! I am typing this post while enroute to our home away from home in San Diego. Saturday morning we will be driving to Anaheim to attend CHA. I'm so excited because we are meeting up with Kim, the Owner of My Favorite Things (MFT) and several other of the MFT DT members! We will be walking the show floor together, checking out all the new paper crafting products.

I am caught up with my design team assignments so I played around with a variety of products and made a mixed media layout featuring a fun photo of Scott that I took when we were in NYC recently. We were sightseeing at Top of The Rock which is the observation deck at the top of Rockefellar Center.
I stamped a sentiment from Die-namics Behind the Camera Die and Stamp Set below the die cut fishtail banner that was made using Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX
I used the following templates from The Crafter's Workshop - mini Gears and 12" x 12" Punchinella along with texture paste, Gesso and various colored sprays.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Keeping The Best challenge:
and for color inspiration, I played along with The Play Date Cafe:
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great Friday!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona this is sich a wonderful take on the sketch and the colors. Not too girlie and perfect for a masculine touch:)You added depth, gorgeous details and this is a stunning example of working with Gesso. love this!
I am still wondering how you are able to catch up with all your DT projects. Impressed by the fact you are able to create so many gorgeous projects with limited spare time besides working. Any tips for me to improve my time management? :)
