A Just Because.......

layout of my precious girl. There is quite a bit I like from the latest CHA but I have also felt the need to use up some of my stash, so I have been good and doing just that.....LOL!!! This is a layout I felt like doing just because, no challenge, no requirements, just some playing :)

A quick and simple layout with some fussy cutting, hand and machine stitching with some gorgeous butterflies.

Her teacher loved it and my DD was so proud of it, bless her little heart!!

No More Photo's!

While snapping away, Conner finally had enough and protested........'no more photo's'!!! I am sure many of you have had your kids do the same...LOL. I used Bo Bunny's sketch and pretty much stuck to it but stitched a circle instead of the square.

I used Bo Bunny Cambridge papers with some Prima flowers, a Kaisercraft brad, Purple Pumpkin button, stitched a tag and used some Dusty Attic chippies. Lots of machine and hand stitching with distressing - two of my faves!

Close ups.....

Now my chippies took alot of 'abuse', I inked, heated, painted, glimmermisted until I got the right colour and then finished them off with some crackle accents and a bit of gesso once dried.

Sweet Arden again!

I love this stamp by Sweet Pea Stamps, her name is Arden and I think she is just beautiful. I coloured her with Copics, used some G45 Steampunk papers, a flower and a DA chippie to finish her off, oooh don't forget some Distress stickles to add some magic and sparkle!

And a close up of Arden.....

I would like to enter her into the Copic Oz challenge. I will be back with a LO tomorrow, hope everyone has been busy creating! Thank you for popping by and your lovely comments.

Half Tart anyone?

This months gallery is up at Lime Tart and if you looking for some inspiration then head over here, you will be blown away with the gorgeous talent there. I got to work with the Half Tart and I loved the gorgeous shades of green with the vibrant red - such a beautiful kit!

Something a little bit different for me, I used the journal cards and basically scrapped them seperately.

Some cards....

If you made it to the end of my long post, well done and thank you for popping by and your lovely comments!
