We went out to a party 2 weeks ago and as I was feeling pretty I decided to let hubby take some pics of Brittany and I. You all know I hate having my photo taken as I always end up thinking they look awful and I can't pose and look natural, anyway on this rare occasion I love how the photos came out so I have done 2 challenge LO's with them!!
Show Us Your Stuff - Together
This is my 1st time creating a LO for SUYS. I'm always checking out the beautiful hand made embellishments on all the gorgeous LO's here, so I finally decided to have a go.
The criteria was to include:
stiching (hand, machine or faux), misting, buttons, 4 or more patterned papers and something handmade.
Used some Ruby Rock It, 2x Crate Paper and Jenni Bowlin pp's with some Scrapmatts butterflies with I painted and stamped with smooch ink. The title is an old Daisy D rubon... so love these!! I hand dyed the doily lace and made some hand made flowers with black lace and corduroy brads. I misted with scarlet glimmermist around the photos and added some black machine stitching. There are buttons in the centre of my hand cut flowers on the bottom left.
Bon's Jan Sketch Challenge - Love
Here is the sketch for this month sketch challenge over at Bon's . You must pop on over and check them out. The gallery is so inspiring with all that amazing talent. The challenge is this sketch by the lovely Tara. The extra criteria are:
Use 2 photos, matted & both smaller than 6x4, hand written journaling direct onto cardstock and some stripes.
I purchased quite of few of these gorgeous MME Lost & Found pp's and decided to use one for this LO. In case you were wondering my stripes are on the pleated pp ruffle. I'm not terribly keen on my hand writing, but I'm glad these challenges are pushing me to get over my phobia. My journaling reads "Brittany, when I was pregnant with you, I wished so very hard for a girl, and my wish came true. I am so very blessed to have you in my life. Love you."
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave some love. I love all your gorgeous comments :)
