An American Girl Day scrapbook page (CQC176 and TCPTUES)

Hi all! Sorry I have been so absent, my sister is visiting from CA and I am getting ready to have a bridal shower for her this coming weekend (....we were calling it a "sprinkle" but with 19 people, I'm thinking maybe we should just use the term "shower" after all!) I am taking lots of pics of all the fun things I've made for it and will be showing you more of that next week.

This is my first TCP challenge as a Cat Packer! The February TCP Tuesday Challenge to make "what's old new again!" You can use a TCP product that you haven't used before, or you can use a TCP product in a new and different way.

This is also for this week's ColourQ challenge! This is a very girly palette, and *BY FAR* the girliest scrapbook page I have ever made in 15 years of scrapbooking! LOL, did you ever think you'd see all that PINK and flowers hanging around here? Yeah, me neither ;) But I have to say it is really cute and I know my niece will love it. I am going to frame it and give it to her. Since I don't have girls of my own, this was a really fun day, and I hope to make a tradition of taking her shopping and to lunch for her birthday every year. :) Here's the palette:

For the TCP "old is new again" challenge I did the following:
*Used CutUps and some TCP letter stamps on my page, I generally use them for cards.
*Used the bird's nest CutUp to make felt roses instead of nests.
*Used a letter set (Coolvetica) that was previously uninked for the title and Jadyn's name.
*Used the Heart Trio CutUps to make the felt leaves for the felt flowers.

You can link up YOUR TCP "old is new" project right here (on the top of the sidebar).

I also used the following older sketch for my layout jumping off point. I didn't follow it exactly, but pretty close. :)
I was really glad to use some older SU! DSPs on these. That sweet pattern with the little girls on it and the sewing motif (large scalloped circle behind the photos) is SO cute! I've only used a tiny bit of it once, it was perfect for this page. The border stickers, all papers, and mini flower stickers are all SU! and quite a bit older. The background paper is actually Rose Red, I didn't have anything but ink in Raspberry Ripple.

Here's the CutUps I used:

*Heart Border
*Lacy Floral Doily
*Circus Panels
*Sunflower Rosette
*Rolled Nest
*Heart Trio

Here's the link to the Coolvetica alphabet set, this is a really great alphabet set, I'm so glad I finally used it. I love how clean it is!

Some detail shots:

and that is all for me today! Hope you will come play at both the February TCP Tuesday Challenge and this week's ColourQ!

big hugs, Noelle

Oh my. This is so sweet. It's just amazing what a change in color and embellishments can do.
