Nikki Sivils News

Awhile back, I submitted an application to the Nikki Sivils Design Team call. While I didn't make the team, I received a lovely note from Susan saying that I was close...and would I like to be a Guest Designer? Would I??? Of course!!!! Those Nikki Sivils papers are SO me! I love the bold colours, vibrant designs and the whimsical images...I love love love all of it!

I'd like to share a couple of projects from my submission.

One of the submission requirements was to create a layout about yourself. I have never done this before. Truthfully, I always thought it was a bit self-centred but after creating it, I realized how important it is to have a layout about yourself. When the girls see this layout, they read every single word on the page. I am more than just "Mom" to them; I am a real person! Not sure if you can see the dimension on this page but the trees, clouds and bird are all popped up. I am really happy with this page.

And here is one of Danielle. She loved that song titled, "I'm Supergirl!" And when I see these pictures I definitely see her being my Supergirl!

Here is a side view of the Supergirl layout too!

I love how the crown adds a touch of humour and whimsy to the layout and pictures. That wit is SO Danielle!

Thanks for dropping by! I'll share my project in tomorrow's post.

Your work is lovely and we all love your style!! So glad you'll be our GDT! I'm happy you liked the layout of yourself, I do think its important to leave a part of "us" that may surprise our kids or grandkids one day. I do an "about me" layout every year around my birthday, and I always list a few of my favorite things at that time in my life. I love looking back and reading some of my thoughts during that year (especially the 2 yrs I had braces on as an adult I think I was a bit bitter that last year) LOL! Thanks again for playing with us!! Have a great week!! -Nikki
