Altered Pages Kitty Kit

I have been working on a cute little kit for Altered Pages doing Skinnys with Kitties on them.  Here are a couple examples:

The first one is called School Dazes - I used a brown paper that had the ribbon printed right on it and jazzed it up with some gold and blue beads and Distressed Stickles in Antique Lines.  I also used the glitter glue in the center of the button. Then I added the words made with my trusty Dymo Labeler.

For the second Skinny, which I named Gone Fishing, I used a green and purple background paper, buttons in matching colors and around the border of the image I used a light green glitter glue.  
All images used are from Altered Pages.

Elvis ATC's

I recently received a collage sheet full of wonderful pictures of Elvis and I took two of the images and made these ATC's.

For the first one I have these tiny deck of cards so I took out a King because we all know Elvis is the King of Rock and Roll!!  On the green background I used Distressed Ink in Pine Needle and I added a bit of ribbon that's stapled with green staples.         

On the second card I used GrundgePaper and cut out the letters and then painted t
hem with Twinkling H2O's, I know it's hard to  see in the picture,
 but the letters do have a sparkle to them.  I added a bit of ribbon and used Distressed Ink  in  Tea Dyed around the edges of the card.

COF Journal

I got my Journal to work on for April and can you believe it - I'm already done with it so I thought I would post it for those that want to see.  For this Journal you had to pick three words from a list and use them in an ATC, but you could not use any words - just pictures to represent the words.  The words I used were: flower, girl and undergarment.  They just popped right out at me and I know right away what I wanted to do.  I know I had an image of a lady in a corset from Altered Pages, and it worked perfectly.

I took a piece of green paper from Basic Grey, stamped a few flourishes on it using Distressed Ink in Pine Needle, I also used this around the edges for added color.  I added tiny flowers from Prima and used Distressed Stickles Glitter Glue for the centers.  I  also added Diamond glitter glue around the edges for the corset for added sparkle.  A girl can never have to much sparkle!!   I added a few crystals that I dyed green using Alcohol Ink in Bottle, on the card and a crystal flower at the top.

Thanks for taking a look.
