Hi!  I'm so excited to be joining this team! I've always been a huge fan of Donna and her girlie grunge style, and have also admired my fellow team mates for a long time so this is a dream come true to be among such a talented crew!

For my first project, I'm sharing a layout of my daughter...
(I apologize for the photo quality, we haven't had any sunshine in a very long time)
 I created the background of this layout using the "Mix'd Media Inx" refills as paint. The ink is so intense that it only takes a small amount to make a big impact. The most apparent colors used were "Peridot" and "Truffle"but I blended some areas with "Pewter" as well. 
I also added "Leather" Mix'd Media embossing powder to random parts of the background to create some fun metallic texture. 

 To finish off the page, I embellished it with the some gears using the "sprightly sprockets" dies and then added some cute little tissue flowers using the "Rose Creations" dies.

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share my first project with you, hope you have a great week!
