This is something I made for the Label Tulip anniversary challenge. I paid homage to Leena Loh because I really love her work..

Materials - Patterned papers: My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey, Autumn Leaves; Chipboard alpha: Chatterbox; Stamp: Autumn Leaves; Stamping Ink: Versafine & Tim Holtz; Flourish and glitter: Doodlebug Designs; Mirror: Heidi Swapp; Paint: Making Memories; Die cut felt: Prima; Others: Stickles and American Crafts pen

I am loving Heather Bailey so much! Love the vibrant print and color. The new stamps of Autumn Leaves are just as gorgeous. I'm churning more layouts using these products.

I also started a couple of layouts using the SEI Poppy line... Love those as well - the reds and the blues and silvers.. And they have a paper named Pearl! How very cool is that? :)

I feel that there is quite an improvement on my scrapping time lately. I can actually finish layouts over the weekend. I've always enjoyed the luxury of time when it comes to scrapbooking - I am a la-di-dah kind-of scrapper, no pressures just taking my sweet time.

I am subscribed to Label Tulip and I've so far received the May and June kits. I love the LT kits! I feel like it's so easy to work with it. I feel guilty (sometimes...) because it takes me a while to finally open the kits and play with it. I try to at least make 2 layouts out of the kits that I am currently subscribed to, and I know that I have to maximize these kits since I've cut my LSS visits to just twice a month (a whole lot of restraining since some CHA summer goodies are already available for picking - ugh! Will I be able to refuse the Heather Bailey paper and stamps?)

This layout is actually my slow scrapping - took me two days to finish..

My fast scrapping is a record - even for me. I finished this layout in 3 hours! It turned out quite freestyle - I love the simplicity and whimsy of this layout.
