Lasting Memories Challenge #31

Good morning,

Here is my LO for the challenge over at Lasting Memories.  I know, I didn't do one last week, and I just couldn't get it going.  This last weekend I spent almost every free moment in my craft room as you can see by all the projects I've posted.  I am trying to do a little every day, but that just doesn't always happen. 

This week's challenge was a sketch.  I really like doing them because I have to rethink my scrapping.  Here is the sketch
and here is my LO

I got a huge pad of scrapping paper for christmas from my DS.  He got it at Sam's club and I've thrown the wrapper away, so I can't even tell you who made it.  I think each pattern paper had either 4 or 6 of the same design.  It's gonna take me forever to get through this stack.  I cut the background paper for matting the picture from Pooh and Friends cart. 
I added some picture tags with bling to make it look like that's how the picture is held onto the frame. 

The flowers are a punch from Marvy Uchida.  It's a pretty big punch. 
Yes, I know, I could have cut the flowers from a cart I have, but I am also trying to use some of my older stuff.  I then cut simple circles from the George cart to lay behind the flowers after I inked and crumbled them.  I faux stitched around the flowers and the blue mat and added the kids' names and the date on the mat also.  I added a pink ribbon from my stash and the 3 circle brads under it.

Again, super simple.  This LO would have taken me about  minutes total, but Miss Bella wanted to play with my gypsy and anything else she could get her hands on.  She has now mastered getting the gypsy to light up and thinks that's just funny.  Chasing a 15 month out of your scraproom takes a lot of time away from scrapping itself.  Hahahaha.  But I love her dearly.

As always, have a great day and god bless.

  10. Great job with the sketch. I love your detailed blog post. I'm finding that I am using my punches more and more too. Sometimes it's just easier to use a punch than it is so to find the right cartridge/image, set it up and cut it out. I even just got a couple of new ones. I love that background you used. I love being able to create the shadows like that. I'm glad you were enjoying Bella's company. I'm sure she will be scrapping along with you soon. Thanks for joining us at Lasting Memories.
