Now that it's summer, the girls and I have a little tradition of our own. Saturdays mean bubbles,
and chalk fun all wrapped up into one. Throw in some water sprinklers and all is good in the Brodeur household.
And now my dear friends, I must bid you adieu. I finally got my hands on the first couple of DVDs to the True Blood Season 2 series!!!!
So, for tonight, my scrapbooking supplies will be neglected so that I can engross myself in the life of Sookie Stackhouse and her crazy but fun adventures in a world full of vampires and other things that go bump in the night.

First I created a circle mask with a scrap piece of 12x12 paper. I then sprayed my masked circle with Maya Road mists in Salmon, Lemon, Tangerine, Orange, Bubblegum, and Blue Corn. I sprayed about 1 -2 squirts of each color, slightly overlapping the colors as I sprayed them. Once the mists were dried, I used several papers from the Homespun Chic line and one from the Artsy Urban line to create my layout. Without further ado, here is my end result...
Thanks for stopping by and be on the lookout tomorrow on the GCD Facebook page for more color blending inspiration and fun techniques!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day everyone! Today is one of my favorite days of the year! Who would of guessed that there is a whole day dedicated to all of us scrappers! How wonderful! How are you going to spend your day? For part of the day I am going to scrap in the scrapping/playroom. I figured if I give my oldest daughter some crayons, glue, and my scrap paper she can scrap right along with me. My youngest will be entertained with blocks, puzzles, and books.
