Heads UP! - Doodle Pantry September Release and Sale

It's September 5th and does Doodle Pantry have some fun for you....lots of Great New Images and a special 30% off Labor Day Sale September 5-7. Be sure to check out the Specials Page at the Store.

I just love Laurie's line of Quirkies. This month brings several new additions, one of my favorites is this new Quirky Ostrich. I think she is just too too cute! That long elegant neck, lush eyelashes and those ever fashionable knobby knees....This set comes with Pre-colored and B/W Outlines Images, Great Sentiments and 3 Digi Papers. I chose to use the Precolored images,make use of the 3 gorgeous Digi Papers and of course I used one of the included sentiments.

These precolored Quirkies are so fun to make 3-D and the Ostrich is no exception, I adore the colors in this set. I cut out those cute knobby knees, fun feet, beautifully bright wing and her beak, Popped them up and then added lots of 'Glossy Accents'.

This month's Treat, and it's no Trick to get, is this fun set of Spooky Wreath Images and Digi Paper. This too comes with Precolored and Image Outlines and 1 matching digi paper. This Boo-ti-ful Image is Free for a limited time with any purchase. I used the Precolored Image, with the Spook or Treat Sentiment and the Digi Paper. Added a bit of 'Stickles' Glitter to the leaves and 'Glossy Accents' to the bats and pumpkins. Not so sure I was as successful in making this look like a wreath on a door as I wished.....
Thanks for dropping in, Don't forget to check out this month's DPDC16 Challenge which will run from the 5th-24th of Sept, with the winner being announced on the 25th. You will want to go to the Blog to find the details.

Happy Labor Day!

I found this wonderful quote and knew I had to use it with this cute lil Painter Bear and mount it on an Easel.

So True....It's easy to be critical of life around us, but much more rewarding to live what life we have to the very fullest and find that bit of joy or gratitude in every day.

You can find the rest of Melissa's New Releases at her New Digi-Store. The new challenge for this week, (don't use patterned paper), can be found at the MelJen's Design Team Blog.
