Before I post what I created with my tease items I posted from the other day, I want to praise God for answering my prayers with our garage sale we did wonderful. I again got some great outfits for Emily, it was our neighborhood garage sale, later this week I will post a picture of everything.

I used CTMH new Makin' Waves stamp set, when I saw this I new I had to have it and I remembered I had not yet scrapbooked Emily's first bathing suit pictures. I started with a piece of White Daisy card stock and stamped with black ink the images randomly. I then colored them in with summer Soft Chalks, after this step I covered each image with Liquid Glass. I noticed after covering with the Liquid Glass some of the colors lightened so keep that in mind. Also remember when using a lot of Liquid Glass it will warp your paper, which means I had to use a lot of adhesive to adhere the paper. After the Liquid glass was dry I sponge on Crystal Blue ink, this is what you see here.

For the layout I used an adaption of Add an Element from Cherish. The base pages are Watermelon textured card stock with a bit of sanding done to them. The teal paper is not CTMH but I did sponge on Dutch blue to it. The ribbon is also not CTMH I had picked it up from Target awhile ago. The lighter pink for the matting was the flip side of the textured card stock. For the wording I used the large and small Chocolate stamp sets done in Dutch blue. To create the wave effect I used the Block Buddy set. For those of you not familiar with it, what it is are window clings to go on your blocks there are waves, hearts, circles and graphs. The I's are dotted with CTMH's Sparkles. CTMH's buttons and White Daisy Flowers are also used. I used every stamp from the set to create by background paper. To due the scalloped circle I used Nestibilities with my Cuttle Bug.

Here is a very simple I card I made with some of the scraps.
