Dinosaurs Two-Page LO - Paper Dolls Dress Up

At BBB2 there is a Paper Dolls Dress Up Dino challenge.
I created this two-page layout so that I can use pictures of my grand baby Jasmine who loves Dinosaurs.  (I still need to print the pictures- Costco tomorrow!).
Every cut is PDDU pages 34-35 Row 1, Keys 6 & 7! amazing!!

I just realised I forgot to place the smoke coming out of the volcano!

I used Core'dinations card stockand sanded the paper for the Triceratops and Quetzalcoatlus (right page flying) and used Smooch paints for the "toe nails, paws?
I used shiny grey card stock and colored with Smooch paints for the Brachiosaurious (right page) and the T-Rex.
For the Quaesitosaurus (right page green) I used new DCWV stack.
I layered the Stegosaurus (brown right page)
I used Smooch paint to highlight the greenery.

Look Who's Walking - Flower Shower

Mari from Made by Momo has an every other Tuesday challenge and this Tuesday's theme is Flower Shower.
In this layout you can see Lauren trying to walk. 

I used 4 Fiskar punches for the many (lost count) of flowers and green glitter glue. I did not save the packaging for the pattern paper, I do not remember the company's name.  Inspiration by PageMaps.

She Knows She Has My Heart..... and some new papers!!

When I saw this one page layout from Kelly Goree, I knew I had to scraplift! and I had the paper too!!
and since I love two-page layout, I converted it into a two-page layout!!  The paper is BG Bittersweet collection and the brown background is Core'dinations.

The sentiment reads (printed in pink ink and using Word) "She knows she has my heart, and she knows it too! - On the left page the word "she" is BG chipboard letters and the ""knows it" word.

And now for some nice paper I found at Joanns--
The glitter paper is from Core'dinations-- CoreCouture!!
It is so much better in person!! and it is right now 5 x $1

You can see how glittery is here!

My daughter immediately suggested "mom you can use this for your Disney Princesses stuff"! ... boy! a summer with me and she is all full of ideas (she had never scrapbook before or had seen me do it- it's a new hobby for me!!!)
I also found this new DCWV "The Midnight Spell Stack" that I really like-  $9.99 at Joanns

Pheewwwww! If you made it this far down, you have to leave a comment!!!!!!
