Hello Bloggy Friends! I have two LO's to share today. I spent the day in the studio yesterday playing with the new Crate line, "Restorations". Just loving this line!! I'm so happy that vintage-y is in!
This is a picture of most of my family, (missing Andrew) taken in July when Susan was visiting. I was really happy to have a photo of the four of us and now my next goal will be a photo of the five original "Whites".
I used this week's sketch from Sketch Inspiration. It was designed by Jana Eubank and I just love her sketches. I was going for a junked up over embellished look and I think that I achieved it. ;) I was hoping that the touches of black would be enough to anchor the page and give it a flow. I knew as soon as I used that busy floral paper for the background that this was going to be busy. Here is the sketch.
Another LO using a more subtle side of Restorations. I love this photo of Susan. It just has such a peaceful vibe to it. The layering in the top left corner of the photo is a Julie Bonner scraplift. ;) I have to give credit where credit is due. I used french knots for the first time on a LO. Can you see those little beige circles on the doily edge? Yep, french knots. :)
I used this week's sketch from Sketchabilities. Here it is.
Now onto the Give Away. It is my first and I am pretty excited. I wanted to celebrate reaching 50 followers!! I am amazed by this. When I started this blog last December on the advice of Terry, I figured that I would have two followers, Terry and my sister Susan. LOL I totally love blogging and I get so much inspiration from this community. It is so great to chat with people who share the same passion.
I decided that of course it had to be Basic Grey. "Sugared" is one of my all time favourites! I added in some card stock and kraft paper as well as a sheet of pink corrugated! The alphas are Pink Paislee. It is packed with tags, die cuts, chipboard buttons and chipboard pieces. I even punched out some of my famous 1 inch circles from a Starbuck's cup holder and of course there are two skeins of floss to encourage you to get hand stitching!! Lastly, there are buttons and brads. I don't think I ever complete a LO without these. The sheets of tickets are hand stamped and ready to be cut out and there are some flower shapes that I cut on my Cricut.
All you have to do to be in the running is to leave me a comment on this post telling me something that makes you feel happy! I'll draw a name on Friday night and post a winner. No Mr. Random Generator for me, just papers with names, a bowl and Rob can draw the winner. I'll take pictures!! Good luck to you all!!
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
