Gecko Galz and LuminArte

 I made these two Peek a Boo cards using the Gecko Galz Card Toppers collection on sale now and LuminArte products from Creative Imaginations.

Gecko Galz Aug releases contain a collection of some of the most lovely card toppers I've seen in a long time.  I used these two to form the basis of my Peek a Boo cards.

Next I used LuminArte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist in Sea foam (#29527), LuminArte pigments in  Olive Vine, and Twinkling H20s in Raspberry Wine to accent the tree and flowers in this card.

And I used Twinkling H20s gold for the twining vines in this one and a mix of Ginger Peach, Green Tea and Ice Blue Twinkling H20s to give color to the dragon flies vellum wings. 

Gecko Galz and LuminArte ...what a great combination!

Cropping at Posh Scraps

Last Wed. Jacque, Baby D and I met at Posh to scrap.  Our Cynthia was out with a bug of some kind and Di still has her Grands to watch til school starts.  The "Women who do Lunch" bunch was smaller last Wed. but we managed to struggle  I completed two full layouts and parts of two others.  I have been trying to use up some of my stash and doing this layout helped. 

 Michele has some lovely cards in the store and I decided to use one on a layout along with the envelop to create a multi photo opportunity.  I did not have the other pics I wanted with me so will add these when I print them later this week.
 The photo and the cover of the card flip up, the envelop opens and I placed a good sized tag inside. 

I love the fact that the card serves as the title and I can do hidden journaling in a variety of places. 

I have work to publish here from Creative Imaginations and Gecko Galz so watch this spot.  And, as always, thanks for reading my blog.
