Maggie Holmes Flea Market Blog Share

"Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver and the other gold..."


I am so thrilled you have joined myself, Jody and Gia as we share our projects featuring Maggie Holmes Flea Market.  First I would like to take a little time to thank my crafty friend Gia for sending myself and Jody some amazing pieces from this collection to work with!  If you have stopped here first please head on over to Gia's Blog and start at the beginning of the blog share!  We are doing this blog share to celebrate our friendship and to inspire and encourage others!  I am so thankful to have met these two wonderful ladies through my love of crafting and blogging and even though we have never met in person I feel we have an amazing connection and our always here for each for support and encouragement!  So with all that being said it is time to share with you a couple of the projects I created with my share of this collection.  First up I have a very sweet 4x6 mini album filled with photos and journaling of our girl Ms. Alyssa.  She is a bit of a tomboy but with 4 brothers how could she not be!  She does love a good lip gloss and a great piece of jewelry and we must never forget the nail polish!  Here is a look at my mini album using Maggie Holmes Flea Market ...
 
 
I love all the great colors in this collection and the touches of gold in the embellishments is perfect!  I did use some Thickers from my stash in my mini as well and a couple pieces of scrap paper that went well with this collection.

 



 
The gold doilies are from Jody's Etsy Store SpiegelMom Scraps Shop and they go fabulous with this collection.  She has many different products in her shop so make sure to stop by after the blog share and check it out!
 
 

 

This page of Alyssa on the skateboard with her painted toes and flip flops is one of my favorites and shows just how much of a girly girl tomboy my little girl is!  The mini tag tucked behind the photo and the May Arts String is also from SpiegelMom Scraps Shop!

 
I had so much fun with this collections and could not stop at just a mini I had to create a fun and girly card as well and I used Retro Sketch #86. 

I used a stamp set from Paper Wings Productions called Sayings & Sentiments and I also stamped the inside of the card with a sentiment from the same stamp set!  I love my Paper Wings Productions stamps and I just can not seem to finish a project without adding at least one of their stamps!  I hope you enjoyed my projects as well as the rest of the projects in this 1st ever blog share!
