Sweet Ellie's Day Out!

Hi everyone, it's Ria Mojica again! Today I am sharing with you 3 LOs I made using Ellie's Day Out. I so love the sweet pastel colors...makes me feel so girly.

The 1st LO is my Mother's Day LO, titled "I am....Mom".
  • I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the scallop die-cut paper to match the border on the cardstock photo mat.
  • I also enjoyed playing with my border punches to create different ribbon strips. The green rikrak was made using the Treading Water punch, while the pink strip was made using the Apron Lace punch.
  • I used the heart stamp from "Will He B The 1?" and heat embossed it in white to finish my LO.

The 2nd LO is titled "Bag Ladies" featuring a photo of me with my mom and 2 sisters.

Years ago, before I was married, we used to spend whole week-ends shopping together. But now that I'm married (e.g. less shopping time and cash) and my 2 sisters live in New York, this is something we can't do anymore. Until last Jan 2010 when my mom treated our whole family to a trip to Hong Kong. I am so lucky that my hubby agreed to stay with the kids and let me shop with my mom and sisters like we used to do.

The 3rd LO is of my daughter Nadya. She is growing up way too fast for me and is getting more and more into clothes and fashion (even if she insists that she doesn't like fashion!)...she can't help it, I guess, after all, she does take after me.

That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed looking at my LOs and are similarly inspired by this sweet collection from Nikki Sivils.
