Review in Hiding

Twelve years...seems like a lot right?! how about 18 years...whoa that definitely seems like a lot! Funny...both seem like they could be just a year or so...but the numbers by themselves seem huge! Today my wonderful husband and I celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary...we have been together for 18 years (started dating in high school). So Happy Anniversary to my Love (as if he reads my blog)...love you today more than yesterday and I will love you even more tomorrow (unless you forget to put the dishes in the dishwasher!...just kiddin')!

So with the celebration of my anniversary going on, I nearly forgot about showing off this adorable monster named Leif by Paper Makeup Stamps. Totally love this little guy hiding out in the leaf pile! Makes me look forward to the nice raking day where the kids and I play in the leaves...then the novelty wears off and I still have much more raking to do! Anyway, stamped him on watercolor paper and colored him with an aquabrush and ink pads. I found this tree pattern paper that I based all of my colors off of. The watercolor paper was too white against that pattern paper, so I sponged all around the monster...I really like how that made his eyes pop out even more! The Leif Monster comes with a sentiment (didn't use it here) and technically has three leaves as part of the stamp...I chose to make the leaves separate so I could use them easier...such as to stamp leaves on my paper strips! The sentiment I did use was from the Little Moments set from Paper Makeup Stamps.

Make sure to see what the other designers are reviewing today over on the PMS Blog! Have a great Sunday and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

Happy Anniversary, Andrea! I love how your card turned out. Such a fun layout and I really like that you've added purple to the fall leaves. :) And I can totally relate to your summary of raking, haha.
