Feature Day

Today  is my day to be featured on the 
for our 
Midsummer Night's Dream Monthly Challenge theme.
Here are my samples for the month, along with
the Gecko Galz products I used to make them:


Midsummer Night's Dream Collage Sheets Set
Nouveau Garden paper pak
Butterfly Dreams paper pak
Butterfly from the Parisian Garden Craft kit


Midsummer Night's Dream Collage Sheets Set
Magnolia Blossoms paper pak


Midsummer Night's Dream Collage Sheets Set
Wonderful Watercolour ATC backgrounds set
Namaste paper pak
flower from the La Boheme Craft kit
Charming Words Collage Sheet Set

If you have been here before,
you know how I make these digital pieces.
Using PSE13, I layer
the images, papers and icons I want,
accenting them with borders and brushes
from my monster stash.  lol
I seem to be on an "add a stroke to everything" kick,
so I have done that with each layer this month.
It will pass. haha

And in the case of my second sample, I did add a beautiful frame
by Kimeric Kreations.  Kim passed about a year ago and
her talent and generosity in sharing that
talent knew no bounds.
I still miss her.

You have until the end of the month to
Midsummer Night's Dream challenge
and you can find more glorious examples
from the rest of our talented Design Team 

Will we see you there?
I sure hope so.


And thanks for coming by!

Feature Day

Today is my day to be featured on the

And you will remember, I'm sure, that this month's theme is
In the Good Old Summer Time


I made some ATC's this month to share with you: 



Each ATC uses a black and white image from the
Summertime Collage sheet set, wordart from
the Charming Words Set and
a paper from the Paradise Island paper pak.

I added borders from my stash, and 
a stroke to each layer to make
the layer pop.

Finally, I placed each creation over top 
of another paper with another border.

The background papers are


1. Wonderful Watercolours ATC Collection
2. Zen Garden paper pak
3. Zen Garden paper pak
4. Starlight ATC Collection

You have until the end of the month to
join in with our  
In The Good Old Summer Time challenge

I sure hope so.

In The Good Old Summer Time

I am singing along to that song
"In the Good Old Summer Time", 
and I realize that is the only line of it that I know.
But that does't stop me.  
Are you like that?
Do you just make up words as you go along
to songs you can't remember?
Well, maybe it's just me.
At any rate, that
is our theme for
the Gecko Galz customer challenge this month!
Isn't that fun?



Here is my contribution
(just one of many gorgeous samples, I
might add, by our talented Design Team)
for this sample, I used
these Gecko Galz products:
Surreal Life Jewel sheet
(which is spectacular!)
In Other Words wordart,
and La Isla Bonita paper pak.

ALL OF WHICH
can be found in our

As my digital pieces always are,
simply layer upon layer of
those wonderful Gecko Galz products!

In this case, I placed the cropped image from the 
Surreal Life Jewel sheet
over top of the paper from the 
La Isla Bonita paper pak.
I added the border and jewels from
my stash, along with a couple of
extra clouds.
Then it is finished with the wordart
from the Gecko Galz In Other Words
digital stamp set.

Make sure you check out the other
beautiful samples at the
 Gecko Galz blog
and get your own project linked up there.

The only rule is that you need to use at least
one Geck Galz product, and you could
