Here is my first page:


I really love the colors in the Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope line!


This is a close-up of a flower made with the new Marion Smith Bloom tool-I will be sharing a tutorial on how I made this using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die.I fussy cut the white flowers and swirls and popped them up with foam backing.

My second page is sweet and shabby:


The pic is my daughter Naomi a few days after she finally got her braces off-now all she does is smile!
The colors in this kit are really just amazing!


Krissy finds us the prettiest things!


This little flourish is from my Leaky Shed Studios stash. I painted the flourishes white and highlighted them with Diamond Stickles. I painted the ppetals in coral to match the Petaloo blooms then crackle them. The center is microbeads in emerald to match the gorgeous velvet Prima flower.

My last page for today is grungy for Rae's Masculine Page Challenge:


The pic is my son as he looks over his personal field of dreams, Fenway Park in Boston. This isn't really my style but it was fun to get inky and grungy!

Wow Tracey. Simply beautiful. Your daughter has a gorgeous smile :) Well, this house is a Yankee house so I can't say I like the hat, but, the lo came great even though it's not your style. Awesome job,

I don't know what happened but I left a comment before and it hasn't shown up, so I'm glad I checked again! Tracey, your daughter is beautiful and your layouts are awesome! I so appreciate you sharing them with us! I learn so much by going through and seeing the Design teams layouts and projects each month! I am pretty new at this so it really helps me get an idea of how to work my kit!!!

Beautiful work Tracey! I love the effect the fussy cut flowers give on your first layout, and your handmade flower is awesome. And oh... the prettiness... on your 2nd page! Such beautiful bling and lace, and you've used them in such a lovely way. Last layouot - perfectly grungy, masculine and fun!

Gorgeous projects, I wish I had the courage to play with mixed media, but I am nervous about having a new passion and how much it would cost me! I am a Red Sox fan too, loved the layout of your son at Fenway.
