Color Me Miki!!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. This year we had the celebration at my cousin's house, Kuya Rino. It was also his birthday and Ate Chay threw him a surprise party. Hopefully he was genuinely surprised even though he kept seeing some familiar faces around the neighborhood..haha!

After a designing hiatus for a few months, I am very excited that Terri asked me to be be a part of the Color Me Miki design team. I am so honored to be a part of the club and to work with her awesome kits. It's the perfect size and she mixes manufacturers that coordinates wonderfully. I love the bright happy kits and they were so fun to work with. Thank you, Terri, for this great opportunity!!

I was able to start with the Dec kit. I love the pink and green mix, great for the Holidays or not! Here is a picture of the kit..filled with Pink Paislee and KI Memories. My favorite part of the kit was the cool Prima Transparency that had a bunch of nested frames!

Here is a quick card I created with the scraps from the layout. I totally LOVE the tree PP from Pink Paislee. I cut them out individually and applied Stickles. You can get the Stickles from the add-ons.

Here are 2 layouts using the frames transparency..I love that thing!! I cut the big circle out from the Cousins layout below. I also cut a small piece of the circle and used it in Jasmin's overload layout.

Finally here is the Cousins layout. I used pictures from our trip to Lake Tahoe back in May..yes, I'm pretty behind! haha! I covered up the circle with a piece of cardstock.

And here is a sketch based on the Cousins layout. Thanks so much!!
