Jungle Time ~ Our Little Cheetah

Another fun challenge for CI Paints! Our challenge this round is "Jungle Time" with chipboard or grungeboard embellies. I just got a TON of pictures printed of the kids, which has now put me even further behind on their scrapbooks (I take WAY too many pictures!). So along with this challenge, I've decided to make a challenge for myself, by creating a layout with this rounds challenge from CI Paints! And I have to admit, I think, it turned out really cute!

Make sure to check out the CI Paints blog to see all the other great projects!

We had this adorable outfit from a friend of mine for Ava and she looked so adorable in it!

My layout:

Firstly, I went through all my papers looking for a cheetah like paper to use and found this one

...but it wasn't really what I wanted. So my creative juices started flowing and I thought what a great idea it would be to use the paints to alter the paper the way I wanted it to be!! I used CI Paint "Tickled Pink" in the centers of the cheetah markings. I also used ColorBox Fluid Chalk Inkpad "Pink Pastel" to lightly add some pink to the paper to make it a little more "GIRLY"! I was so much happier with this paper now that it was altered!

I bought some chipboard shapes from Hobby Lobby as I thought these hearts would be a cute accent to the layout. Especially coated with "Chocolate" CI Paint!! I just love the shimmer! I also added a flower to each heart.

2nd Heart:
Here is a close-up picture of the flowers next to the little write-up. I bought these flowers on my last trip to Archiver's, I just HAD to have them. They are by Flora Doodles and the package has 80 jeweled flowers, which are all white. I though they would be perfect for coloring with the CI Paints to match my projects! I used "Tickled Pink" and "Tutu Pink" to cover these flowers.

Just a close-up picture of the layered paper behind to main photo. I used my new EK Success punch "Diamond Lace" along with my new i-rock to add some bling!

Once I again I have to say "I LOVE THESE PAINTS!!" You're probably sick of me saying that, but it is true! There are so many uses for them on any project you create. I really just love the added shimmer they give a project! There are so many great colors to choose from, check it out!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!!
