McMahon Five Designs New Releases

For the Bonibleaux Designs New Release Blog Hop click HERE

  This weeks new releases at McMahon Five Designs are here!  I saw the Vintage Floral Ribbon image and immediately was inspired to get going on my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary album. Their Anniversary was in 2005.......!  Here is the page I created:
 This is a 12x12 page. I love this picture of my parents wedding, especially seeing my parents and relatives in their younger years.  I used Groovy Guava and Soft Suede SU cardstock behind the photo. I printed the Floral Ribbon image on White and trimmed it, then on Vellum.  I colored the White card stock with Copic markers. I printed out a couple more of the image and trimmed out some of the flowers and butterflies and bees. I placed the cut out white image behind the Vellum, and then backed that panel with Soft Suede card stock.

  I added some Groovy Guava ink to the Prima white roses and added a swirl of half pearls and hat pins to the ribbon.  
Here is a close-up of the trimmed butterflies and the Kaiser flower I sponged ink onto- I added Creative Inspirations Paint in Fairy Dust for glimmer.  I added a 3/8" brown ribbon and some pretty Prima lace.
  There, page one...done......!

I played in some challenges today, which I have linked at the end of the post today.

Here is the remainder of the McMahon Five release for today:

BoniBleaux Designs- New Release Blog Hop

 Bonibleaux Designs has a new release- and it could not have come at a better time.  We have two kids in college, and AAA is our new best friend!  LOL.  The team is having a blog hop and I am thrilled to be able to participate.
 I colored the image with Copic markers. The background is a highlighted Cuttlebug folder. The Sketch is from 365 designs from 1/23. The sentiment is from Viva Las Vegas (red rubber).
While you are hopping be sure to leave some love - one of the Design Team Members will be secretly chosen as the "MYSTERY HOSTESS" of the blog hop and one lucky commenter will WIN one of our new release images for free or any individual image of their choice.
This Blog Hop does not have a starting and ending point so no matter where you HOP on you are in the right place. Just keep going. Don't forget to leave some love everywhere you land, including here! Once you have gone full circle you have completed the Hop.
We have eight new images to share with you this month and as you hop along we're sure that there will be something that inspires you!
To start the hop off in the right gear we bring you Undercarriage Craig. Craig has been working really hard to get the car all tuned up for the big Valentine's surprise he has been planning! We hope he remembers to wash the grease off of his hands!
We are so excited to link you to Chrissy D she is the newest DT member! YEAH!
We hope you like what you see! We certainly had a blast putting it together for you!!

The image is a freebie for the next month at McMahon Five Design. I colored with Creative Inspirations Paint in pinks of course- I also painted the Prima flowers with CI paint. The flowers and trim are also from McMahon Five Designs. 
The pocket edge trim is a MS punch- I used SU Rose Red and White cardstock.
