Cityscapes are HOT!!!

That's according to trend watcher extraordinaire Moxie Fab World. I've tried to tackle a cityscape project for 4 months now but somehow the page always ends up looking messy in a drab and uninspired way (Like living the the Bronx Ahahha haaaah! Don't kill me!). Today I was feeling down- it's SNOWING in NYC. Momma Nature obviously did not get my tweet- it's SPRING chica!!!!! SHEESH!

Miss Lola is also trying to get over a nasty cold and refusing to sleep on her own- or at least she was yesterday- today she gave me 2 hours to myself!!!!! I'm SO THANKFUL!!!!

Here's what came of it:
This IS Home
MATERIALS: We R Memory Keepers cityscape lace, Crate Paper Toy Box and Neighborhood paper and stickers, My Little Shoebox alphas (most AWESOME alphas EVER!), my new signature- yellow string all messed up into a ball, Fiskars Cloud punch, Martha Stewart jewelry tag punch, Maya Road bingo motif
I'll submit this to Moxie Fab World's Cityscapes are on the Rise challenge and see what people think. There are so MANY gorgeous cards there- seriously guys- go check out the beautiful work already posted.

I had a lot of fun making this and not only because Lola was asleep. I used the scraps off my table again because my stash is so disorganized right now it's actually keeping me from feeling like I can tackle a more detailed project.

I LOVE the new Crate Paper collections- ALL of them! I added a few details here and there and will try to keep the rest for a Crate specific page. Did you know you are more likely to be picked for a DT if you can limit your projects to 1 one brand? That was a tip from a Paper Issues CT member who shall remain incognito but she's my fave blogger right now and a very VERY talented lady whom I sincerely thank for sharing. It must be SO ANNOYING to have to talk down uppity whipper snapper team members from their respective scrap ledges all the time. Hello Michelle- GET A LIFE and stop WHINING!!!! (That's me talking- she would never say that- she's nice) As for how I will use the info.. I haven't the foggiest! One of the things I like MOST is mixing brands up. So I'm in more trouble than I thought...
Then again I did promise not to apply to any more DTs as I get all maniacal about it... so I'm safe FOR NOW!  MUAH HAH HAH HAH HAAAAAAAAAA!
Some cool shots- Hipstamatic is AWESOME for Mojo upkeep.

These are SO on my next page!!!! Maybe it will be another cityscape page- Moxie is giving you till the 28th so get scrapping mi gente!!!

OH and before I forget- don't YOU forget to drop by PAPER ISSUES Blog Hop and take a looky look at the linked projects and DT member creations there- lots of great give-aways and inspiration. I sure learned a lot when I went through everyone's blogs this weekend- mainly that I'm SO GLAD I'm part of their team.
Page again with no sidebar interference...
MuChoS SmOoChEs!
Michelle (why keep my name secret right?)


  1. really cute layout girlie girl. i love the tiny circle page border. can't believe its snowing again. bummer. have a great week.

  2. Very cute!! I love the straight's buildings and car!!

  3. Love this! Love the bright yellow details.

  4. Great picture of you and your little lady!! Love the mix of color, texture, this and that - as usual!!

  5. What a super fun layout! Love the "cityscape" lace. It makes the layout extra whimsically magical! :) As for limiting product to only one company, that is no fun! It is fun to mix and match and come up with something unique and different!

  6. Hey Michelle! Thanks for entering the Cityscapes Are on the Rise challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)


Ok peeps lets CHAT! You tell me what you REALLY think and I PROMISE to keep it open minded here.
