Simple Moments – dt layout for LCTS and an announcement

For my take on the Let’s Capture These Sketches #115 by Natalie Roy, I went with some gorgeous Bo Bunny Welcome Home papers, sticker and chipboard. The “misletoe” is by Prima and the flowered trim is by May Arts (the blue lace w/sequins is from my stash). The fabulous corner flourish is by Dusty Attic and can be found in the STTG store HERE. I painted the DA chipboard piece with white acrylic paint and misted with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Frost and a bit of Olive Vine. Here’s what I came up with:

This is the gorgeous sketch #115 we got to work with:

Card for the Bo Bunny Sketch Challenge

This is my take on the current Bo Bunny Card Sketch (they have one each month). I used last year’s Gabrielle collection pp, diecut stickers and layered stickers. I added color to a standard white doily with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and here’s what I came up with:

I mainly used Helmar Premium Craft Glue, but the sentiment piece is popped up with Zap Dots (foam squares) and the seam binding bow was adhered using 450 Quick Dry.

Here’s the fab Bo Bunny Sketch I was inspired by:

All Bundled Up – Sketchy Thursdays

This week’s sketch 11.17 at Sketchy Thursdays was perfect for this layout of Matthew all bundled up to play in the snow back in Feb 2010. A little before Christmas last year, I took the kids with me to ACMoore and they had some arts and crafts set up for the children to do and were giving out snowflake shaped, glittery felt ornaments. When we got home, Matthew asked me to scrap a page for his book with it. 😀 Here it is a year later and I’m finally getting around to doing just that! lol

This week’s feature on the Firefly Expressions blog is Pebbles, Inc. and we were given a half set of foam stamps to work with. Mine included this great snowflake piece that used with white acrylic paint for the bg of my lo.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

Matthew’s felt snowflake is in upper right corner of the page. Isn’t it cute? 😀
