On a Mission -- featuring Elle's Studio :)

Hi everyone! :)

Back in March, I was determined to use of some of my collections I have 'collected' over the years! LOL!!! So in one weekend at the beginning of October, I grabbed the "Serendipity," "Love you More!," "Saltwater," "Day to Day," and "Cameron" collections from Elle's Studio and started creating!! (this was also I great way to use of some of my piles and piles and piles of photos I have!! LOL!!) 


Over the next couple of days I wanted to share those layouts with you! :)





















Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Wicked Good! -- featuring Paper House Productions :)

Hi everyone!

I am up on the Paper House Productions blog today and I wanted to share my layout here too! :)




I created this with some awesome Tombow Twintone dual-tip markers along with Paper House Productions 'Wicked Good' collection.

Since I was using a photo of Brookie's Halloween costume from 2015, and it wasn't your 'typical' Halloween colors, I grabbed the Paper House Productions acetate web paper from 'Wicked Good,' and then took four of the Tombow markers and colored in all the white areas of the acetate paper to match her costume!

And here is how it looks after I finished coloring the acetate paper with the Tombow markers!

Hi everyone! It's me Brookie! Today, I am ELEVEN!!!! :)

Yep! Today is my 11th BIRTHDAY!!! :)


Happy Birthday to me!!!!!!! :)




And of course, I just had to mess with Mom while she was taking pics of me, and I started to Vogue! ;) 




I crack myself up! :)






My birthday celebration started this past Saturday, when my BFF came over to spend the night! Mom and Dad took us to dinner at the Olive Garden! YUM! :)




Mom and Dad let us play on the electronic game thing they have on the tables - they normally don't let me play on those, since they cost money, but it was my birthday dinner - so they let us play!  We chose Monopoly! :)




I chose the Salmon! YUMMY! :)






Then the employees brought me a strawberry sundae and sang 'Happy Birthday' to me! :)




 Then my parents gave me a gift card, so they took me and my BFF to Target, and I chose a 2 toys for me, and one for my BFF! :)




And Mom had found this cool excavation toy at Target, and got one for me and my BFF - so when we got back to my house, we started digging!! Mine had a rat in it (not real! just a toy, I promise!) and my BFF's had a skull in it (again! not real! LOL!)!! 





After we cleaned that up, we each had a cupcake that my Mom had made! :)





Then on Monday, my Dad came home from work with a BIG surprise for me!! One of the people he works with is an AMAZING baker, and he asked her to make me some Day of the Dead cookies, and WOW!!! She made these AWESOME Sugar Skull cookies!!!! I love the Day of the Dead, and I LOVE these cookies!!!! SO good and SO awesome looking! :)





This one I am saving for last! :)









And my brother sent me a birthday gift too!!! I love POP'S! and these are sooooooooo cool!!!!

I love my brother, he's the best!!!




Now, I am off to the store to get cupcakes for my classmates, and a SPECIAL cupcake just for my school principal as we have the SAME BIRTHDAY!!! I always bring her one just for her! :)

BYE!!!! :)
