Seriously - bad blogger award over here - I mean nearly a month since my last post??? What have I been up to . . . well mostly taking care of these 2 :)
Oh and a bit of household reorganizing, a redesign of my scraproom (just beginning this process but super excited!!), a photography class, a web design class, and losing a bit more of this baby weight (only 12 pounds left to go - total weight loss to date, 71 pounds, yes I gained 83 pounds with this pregnancy - let's not talk about it - hah!!). Anyways - I haven't been doing as much scrapping as I would like but I know everything will fall into place soon enough. So excited for the chilly weather & the holidays heading this way!!! Anyone else experiencing any chilly fall weather????
Although I have lots of past projects that I still need to share here - I thought today I'd focus on a fabulous opportunity I was given by My Little Shoebox to be there guest blogger this past Friday. I used their adorable Playtime collection & came up with this . . .
I thought the Playtime cardstock stickers were super cute & used them to embellish both circle elements on the page. In this close-up you can see both the sun & cloud stickers. To add some texture, I decided to emboss the clouds using my Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots embossing folder. By adhering the sticker to some cardstock beforehand it ran through the Cuttlebug super easy!!
Although I love pre-made embellishments, it is always fun (and economical) to create your own. In the close-up below I took one of the elements from the Playtime Daydream paper and cut it into a ribbon pennant shape. Then I simply added a toothpick adhered with some glue dots behind & voila - instant embellishment!!
Oh & of course, a sketch to get your creative juices flowing :)
My Little Shoebox will be running a challenge with this sketch - head HERE to find out all the details so you can play along!!!
Be back soon with more (promise not to wait a month) - hope everyone is doing well out there!!!
