Thank You for being a Friend – Layout for Prima BAP and STTG #1

STTG‘s first challenge is to use “Thank You” or “Thankful” on a paper based project. For my example, I decided to use that theme and the current Prima BAP challenge which ends today. Though my first thought was Larry and the kids, I figured everyone already sees page after page of my family and know how much I appreciate them and how truly grateful I am to have them in my life. However, what a lot of people do not know is that Nicolle, my online scrappy bestie, has been been a true friend to me. I’m fortunate to have served on 5 different design teams with her (some current) and I’m so incredibly thankful that we met about a year ago. I don’t know where my head would be without her some times and I know that I can talk to her about literally anything…what a gift! She’s a real listener, which is so rare these days and I greatly appreciate everything she does to contribute to the teams we’re on. She’s focused, dedicated, loving, caring, generous, responsible and a wonderful friend. She’s fabulous wife and mother. I only wish there were some way my page could capture all of that, but this will have to do. lol

Thank you, Nicolle, for being YOU! 😀

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we got to work with a fabulous sketch #121 by Darlene.

The Sky is the Limit – Layout for Sketchabilities Sketch #65

When I saw sketch #65 at Sketchabilities, I immediately knew I wanted to use the new Sunday Picnic collection by Webster’s Pages for it. I also knew I wanted to use the gorgeous Rainbow Sky page for a layout with photos of Christian on a swing set that I took last fall, so everything fell into place pretty easily. 😀 I hand stitched using embroidery floss to make the rainbow stand out more. I then used a doily as a mask for the larger circle element from the sketch and created a mask using waxed paper so the mist would not obscure the gorgeous rainbow. 😀 Here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages Sunday Picnic pp
WP Sunday Picnic fabric tickets
WP Sunday Picnic Perfect Accents
WP Sunday Picnic Dazzle Me Gems
WP Rose and Pearl Sparklers
WP Medallion Sparklers
WP Designer Threads
Little Yellow Bicycle doilies
Maya Road mist
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar Zap Dots

Tools:
