Crop Addict Final Reveal...a bit late...

Well as I have mentioned....a lot of things are coming to an end for me!   My term with Crop Addict is also ending.  :(  I just loved the ladies on this team...they are all so inspiring and creative! 

Here is the lovely January Kit featuring BoBunny and Fancy Pants Roadshow (which I love)!

 There is a lot of purple in this kit, which I don't usually work with that much.  BUT it helps that Charlotte happens to have a lot of fall and winter clothes that have purple in them!  (And no, I didn't dress her up to match the kit, but I was tempted at some points!)

I had these photos from Thanksgiving week when Charlotte got dressed up a few times.  This adorable cap was handed down from her cousins!

I fussy cut out some of the flowers from the BoBunny paper and then drew in some of the swirly lines by hand to connect them.

I outlined my  photos with my black pen and pop dotted a cute little butterfly in the corner.

This next page was inspired by some boots that my brother bought over Thanksgiving while he was here.  Miss Charlotte loved them, too, and thought she could wear them around...well they were just about taller than her legs!  But she still looked cute!

 I was inspired by some of the patterns on the boots. I used a damask stamp and some clear embossing powder to stamp the black cardstock.  Then I did some different types of stitching on the borwn paper to give it some texture like the boots, too!

The shape of this journaling block reminded me of a big belt buckle, so I added some brownish inks and some crackle paint to the edges.  I mean with big boots, you have to have a big belt, right???

I am so excited about this last page.  I knew I was going to use this kit for this page as soon as I saw it!  My word for 2010 was RENEW, so I wanted to do a softer type of page to reflect on how I did with my word.  I definetly feel renewed.

I layered a lot of elements from the kit including some of the cut out cards from Fancy Pants Roadshow and these cut little alphabet cards.  Luckily I got an "A" in my kit!  :)

There is also a Maya Road keychain with some fun words, and I choose to use REAL to reflect some of my thoughts...

I have to say that I am not much of a card maker.  But my Dad's birthday is coming up this week, and I wanted to send him a little handmade card because I know that he will appreciate it, so here it is!  This will also tell me if he reads my blog...:)

Well, that is it for Crop Addict!  I really enjoyed my time there!

Yesterday I spent 13 hours at Archiver's with Heather cropping and had SOOOOOO much fun!  PLUS I got a ton of stuff done which I can't wait to reveal over the next couple weeks!
