Sketchabilities #88

Here is the Sketch #88 at Sketchabilities. I used London Market and some MME Chevron paper.  I braided some twine and made the circles. Handstitched and used a Crocheted Doily. I added prima blooms and a Cathio Butterfly. This is my Daughter Serena when she was 17.5 months old.  The Dress was a present from my Dad and is a Family Heirloom. I hope you get some time to join the challenge at Sketchabilities.

Red Carpet Studio Card Challenge. Secret Garden

I have made a card today. I have had some scrappy goodness arrive in the mail and made this for a card challenge at Red Carpet Studios.  I had to have at least 1 flower.  I used Prima's Divine Collection and some Prima flowers.  I left it generic so it could be used for any Occasion. The other material I used are the embossing folder and a Broken earring.

Loves To Scrap Challenge # 1

Loves To Scrap Challenge Blog 



Here is my page for the challenge.  I used an image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Girlz Flowers found here  http://www.bugaboostamps.com/Girlz--Flowers_p_2725.html  It is the first time I am using a digi stamp and I could easily get hooked.  I used MME paper collection for this page. I folded background paper in half and then crimped it.  fussy cut the flower paper and wrinkled it for dimension. I added cork paper and a doily, banner and tag from collection. I only added a couple flowers because its a pretty busy page.  I also wanted to showcase the image and My DD Cherish.  I printed the Digi Stamp onto patterned paper and fussy cut the dress and glued it on with a fine tip liquid adhesive. I colored the image with water-colour crayons.   I hope you enjoy the challenge and get to join us at Loves to Scrap Challenge blog. Winner of the challenge will recieve 7 free digi stamp images.
