This week on the Core’dinations blog, they are introducing the NEW 2011 Design Team.  Each of us created a layout about ourselves to share on the blog and they introduced me on Monday! They have started galleries for all of us so we can share our CORE Creations, and you can also find pictures and bios on the awesome design team members {here!}

* Art…Craft…Create

- Core’dinations Core Impressions & Color Core Cardstock
- Ranger Stickles

- Twine: Pink Paislee
- Stickers: Crate Paper Restoration Collection

- Other: Water Colors, thread

* Techniques: I used watercolors to paint the Core Impressions cardstock and then dipped a toothbrush into a pool of watercolor and added the drips and misting towards the top of the cardstock. I sprayed the light blue color core cardstock with water and then curled it into flower stems, sanded them, and glued them to the page. I used my MM Slice to die cut the words and flowers. Also, the darker, distressed pieces of paper I used around my photo are actually the left over bits of the Core’dinations label from the bottom of the core impression cardstock after I had painted it.

I hope everyone is having a great week.  I got back from my “Girls Trip” late yesterday and to be honest I am still re-cooperating! I was up after 1am for three nights in a row and it pretty much did me in – lol.  I’m so used to going to bed by 10pm and getting up early for the kids…but I had an awesome trip and it was well worth the loss of sleep. I don’t remember the last time I laughed and danced so much, and on Saturday I slept in until 10am…which believe me when I say that has literally not happened in over 9 years! So today I have been playing catch up and will be working on laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc for the next couple of days I’m sure.  I can’t thank my friends enough for inviting me and sharing such an amazing weekend with me!

Much love to you,
