I'm back!!! I have been away from the blog for the past few days, busy with upcoming projects, some house decorating, and a bit of traveling. I have so much to share this week & next :) Today I want to start off with Imaginisce's new sketch challenge for April - created by the very talented Aphra Bolyer!!! I so LOVED this sketch - full of one of my fav elements - circles - and lots of layering!!

Photobucket

And here is my take on it, using a little Imaginisce blast from the past - their Twitterpated line. Love the bright colors in this & all the fun coordinating embellies :)

Here is a close-up of this cute little Imaginisce tree rub-on I used - sometimes if I am using rub-ons in tricky spots tucked in amongst other things, I rub them on a transparency first. Then using the FAB Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid glue, adhere it right down. This makes it super easy to position right where I want it :)

I also added a little texture to this cute Imaginisce chipboard title by tying some twine around it - I am currently in LOVE with twine :)
