Finish in a Flash Double Page Layout

My Finish in a Flash Layout 
-complete a Double Page Layout in 30 minutes- 

Miss Tracy's Supplies: You can find alot of these supplies at the LBH or on our Website 
Chipboard Alphas by Maya Road
NEW Double Dot Paper by BoBunny
Shipping tag
White Distress Paint - Ranger
 Goosebump Bling by Queen & Co.
Twine & Button
Black Fine Tip Journaling Pitt Pen - Faber Castel
Bracket Punch by Little B

I Saved a ton of time on this layout by not cutting photo mats.
They aren't always necessary and I think my layout looks great without them!

Painted over my chipboard letters with my Distress Paint dauber (white). Drys really fast and no need for a brush...gotta love that! Inked the edges with Dusty Rose Chalk Ink and topped with a swipe of Glossy Accents. Love the look!!!

Love to add journaling and details to my papers with my Pitt Pens!
I fussy cut a few flowers from a Floral Print in the collection to bring some flowers over to my second page of my double. I love the color cluster it added!

Love this Bracket Punch...as a whole and cut in half...makes a great decorative tab!

#TBT Blog Post ---

Hello Friends...
Since #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) has become so popular, I thought it would be fun to post a #TBT blog post...The one I'm posting today is from September 2010.

It's hard to believe that in 2010 I had no idea that Breast Cancer Awareness would impact my life in 2013. I urge all of you...all my friends...all my family...all women everywhere--- Please take the one picture that may just save your life! Schedule those Mammo's!

Here's my blog post from
September 2010... enjoy #TBT!

Hello everyone...Miss Tracy here and today I have a fun Pocket/Tag Card to share with you.  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, the Cuttlebug DT and myself were asked to create something Pink.  I chose to do something a bit brighter than the traditional breast cancer soft pink...I just wanted to create something fun and cheerful! I have many friends that I'm happy to say are Breast Cancer Survivors due to self-awareness. I have much love for these great gals...so I used the word love on my card...take a looksie...
I used some Core'dinations paper and sanded over it to create this lovely distressed finish...
I embellished the top of my tag with a few die cut felt and paper flowers and tied them off with a pretty bow...added a few jewels for a sparkly effect...
So girls, ladies, women, I hope you were inspired by my project today but more importantly...please be inspired to check your TaTa's regularly!  For more information on Breast Cancer Awareness, please visit ww5.komen.org

Have a wonderful day!
Miss Tracy :)
