Incognito & Birthday Bash winner!

Did you know that ATD, Momenta has a Super Hero line of paper??
As soon as I saw it, I KNEW it was a must have in my stash.
These 2 projects were made with the
cardstock version of this paper pack
(but it is also available in a page kit, if you like to get all the
co-ordinating embellies and paper in stop shopping.)

I especially had fun with this LO because
I got to experiment with paint splatters.
I FINALLY found out the trick to it-take a bit of paint
and add just a wee bit of water to it,
mix it up, let loose with a toothbrush
(or even a small paint brush which is what I used)
and then wait for it to dry (the waiting was the hardest part for me ;).
I was REALLY happy with the way this one turned out.
I also used my new Dollarama find-alphabet beads.
You can get these at craft stores
(I priced them at Charlottown Walmart at $5+
2 weeks ago, so I went back to Dollarama (West SJ)
and bought another pack-just in case.

All supplies are ATD, Momenta EXCEPT White cardstock (Bazzill),
Alpha beads (Dollarama), Paint & white corrugated cardboard (Dollarama)

I want to leave you with this last project.
This is an 8.5x11" kraft binder
(made out of recycled materials)
that I picked up at Zellers last school season
(I hope they keep selling these-it's a DREAM if you like to alter things!).
I bought this for the purpose of scrapping my
Little Man's first year of school
(which is starting in September-YIKES!!
But I will save my crying and blatting for another blog post ;) )
I normally scrap 12x12" layouts but in all honesty,
the amount of 12x12" LO's
that I have to put into albums is getting to be a little overwhelming, 
so I have decided to scrap 'school stuff' in this format. Binders and page protectors are
MUCH more cost effective, easier to load and easier to store.  
I just hope I can remember to scrap them in the 8.5x11" size.
I think I put this project together in under an hour. I left the kraft color
showing for the most part,
just layered a contrasting color under my funky
Super hero paper, added a few matted die cuts and
'Voila! A master-pizza!!!' (said in my best 'Painter Smurf' Voice).
This will house all the scrapped milestones
& fun things Little Man does in his first year of kindergarten.  
Hopefully I can get it all into 1 album.

If you are still here and reading-
I sincerely appreciate that you visit
my little corner of the internet.

OH and by the way! I got THIS and THIS in the mail last week.
(along with THIS which I promised to give away to
one lucky blog follower!)
And it's number 6-Gisele!! 
Email me your addy at cindysinfo (at) hotmail (dot) com and I will send it out to you!
