Just Us Girls #243

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm sorry I've been so absent from my own blog!  The end of the school year is crazy and my class had, not one, but TWO field trips this past week. And, on two consecutive days, no less!  On Wednesday we visited the Buffalo Museum of Science and on Thursday the local Special Olympics was held at a nearby college campus. I'm soooooo tired! (And, has anyone seen my mojo?!)

Sharyn has a technique Challenge for us this week that was entirely new to me and very fun to do.  Who doesn't love a project with a 'BIG reveal'?  The whole design team at Just Us Girls used the Shaving Cream technique to create our original backgrounds.  Gina K has a very helpful video on how to do this.  I just searched, "Shaving Cream technique" on Google.  I'm certain Sharyn has a link to the tutorial on the JUGSs blog as well, and, you'll see all sorts of inspiration there too!! (linked here)

For my background I used distressed ink refills in picked raspberry, mowed lawn and broken china. My cardstock colors are SUs coastal cabana and PTI's raspberry fizz-all seemed to match perfectly.  Ribbon is from PTI.
We REALLY want to see what you come up with using this technique so please join in! You have until Thursday, June 5 at 9:00 pm ET to enter on our Mr. Linky.  Come on, give it a try!
Have a great day!
Lots to do with the weekend here, but I hope to be back soon with something else!!
Oh, and one more reason for my absence-our NEW Kitten!! Meet Lily! (Oh my, that face!)

Fun color combo on your background, which turned out beautifully! Great design, too really showing off that background.

You are a busy girl and teacher, but, you must have found your MOJO before you made this card. Love the colors and the design that you chose. Very pleasing and delightful.
