XOXO Challenge #16 - Sponsored by Candy Shoppe Designs

I know I have really been MIA this time. There is a good reason. Promise. I'll get to that a bit later though.

This month's XOXO's challenge  is sponsored by Candy Shoppe Designs and the prize is full of Pink Paislee and Prima products. Here is my layout I completed for the design team. I layered several overlays to complete this layout. The products include Pink Paislee, Making Memories, Creative Imaginations, Glimmer Mist. The top overlay was spritzed with Glimmer Mist and edged with pink acrylic paint to give definition. Making Memories trim was added to soften up the look of the hard overlay.

Please visit the XOXO blog for this month's lift challenge and possibly win a prize.
Okay now onto why I have not been scrapbooking. Riley's musical theater group is going to be doing the Little Mermaid musical.  The costumes we were told were not available for purchase and if they were, the prices would be through the roof. Let me just say they already are for the simplest designs. So the teacher called for a group of volunteers. That lead to my being in charge of designing and making 24 different costumes for the younger kids. I had 5 seahorses, 6 sea snails, 5 rainbow fish, 2 starfish, 2 jellyfish, 2 sea anemone, and 2 coral. So needless to say I have been consumed in costume design. Here is a peek at what we have done thus far.

Well I don't seem to have a photo of the fish fins that will attach to the girls' unitards. And I am not quite ready for each and every one of you seeing me in a tutu (jelly fish and anemone). Hope to be back soon since I have made several layouts without photos.
