Rachel here! Another year is ENDING!! When did that HAPPEN!? I seriously can't figure out where my year went. This month, I'm excited to share one an Honorary Gutter Girl with you that I know you'll love. Please welcome Christina!!
My name is Christina Padilla aka CP. I live on the beauiful central coast of California with my hubby of 8 years and two little kiddos, who although I adore to the fullest, they drive me crazy most days! I've been into scrapbooking for quite some time now and basically put my finger in all the crafty pots. Making jewlery, decorating for the holidays, fashion, I'm all over it. I love to layer on my pages and put together little clusters of goodness. I'm a huge fan of color and mixing patterns. I dig it. I'm completely adddicted to Facebook. You can always find me on there on the daily. Really, people, I'm serious.
I'm super excited to be an Honorary Gutter Girl this month. You all are so fabulous! Wishing you all a fantastic and creativity filled 2010!
When I read the prompt title "I'm only fine," right away I thought about my husband. He is the love of my life and with out him in it, well, I just can't phathom the thought! Can't do it! I’m only fine with him in my life. I went with that feeling and titled it "Only You." The picuture I used is a favorite of mine from this past summer. Somehow we never seem to get behind the camera together for picutres of us. Gotta address that for 2010! The georgous My Minds Eye papers and tags color theme of muted blues, greens and beige inspired the vintage-y look I was going for. The "mesh/gauze" was incorporated into the flower by simply cutting some circles out of tulle, layering with flowers and paper then securing with a Basic Grey fabric brad.
I'm super excited to be guesting with The Gutter Girlz this month. You all are so fabulous! Wishing you all a fantastic and creativity filled 2010! Thank you for the inspiration!
