I used the sketch #132 at The Scrappiest Sketch and will enter this in that challenge. I liked the grouping of the papers and embellishments.
(And of course, on the original the last name is not blacked out...just doing that because of all the weird internet stuff going on these days. One can't be too careful!!!)
Printed Papers from Heidi Grace (although the pink dotted paper came out of my stash)
Fiskars Scalloped Punch
Kaiser Craft Rub on
Seam Binding that I dyed pink with Stampin' Up's Pink Passion Ink *edges were also inked with Pink Passion
Rock Candy Distress Stickles
Sentiment is from Stamp it Loud and Clear
Tag is from Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 2
Here's a little closeup:
It took me alllll night to do this! LOL! Even with a sketch. Ok, so I cut my papers and that was fine...it was the embellishing that I just couldn't get right! I tried all sorts of different...the Spellbinders Carnation, the Tim Holtz Rosette, chipboard shapes, ribbon....and I just fiddled and fiddled for a cople of hours. I finished it with the Carnation...looked at it a moment and said "I DON'T LIKE THIS!"...so off those flowers came and I found my stash of pink Prima flowers and was much happier with the result!
Like I said before....I thoroughly enjoyed the process in my little craft room...it doesn't matter if I do one page or half a page in an evening...it's all about the process for me...and it is such wonderful therapy and sure beats watching some gazelle being eaten by a lion which was what my husband was tuned into last night...just after watching how the Roman empire was built which was after Monster Bug Wars on the Science Channel and then I think he was gearing up for ammunition used during WWII! LOL!!!
Happy Crafting and for Donna who is at the beach...HAPPY BEACHING!!!
