Climb Every Mountain – dt layout for SKWAD

This is the dt layout I created for the October Sketch challenge at SKWAD. Around this time last year, Alex was playing soccer and our other kids were playing on the sidelines during his practices and games each weekend. In these pictures, Christian is trying really hard to make his way up a little hill with a bit of an incline. His new shoes and the grass seemed to create a bit of a challenge for him, so it seemed he might as well have been trying to climb a mountain…thus the title for the page. 🙂 I used Webster’s Pages Sunday Picnic papers and a bit of bling and trim from that collection. Here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

This is the fab October Sketch by Jules:

If you’d like to play along, entries are due by midnight (Australian EST) October 31, 2012, TFL!

Little Yellow Bicycle projects for Firefly Expressions

This week I got to work with the Delightful line by Little Yellow Bicycle for my dt work on fireflyexpressions.com. The first project I made was their project sheet that comes with a great assortment of diecut pieces, sentiments, a hidden tag and decorative paper strips. I added a bit of the ribbon from the Delightful line too. Everything shown is included in the kit except for the handmade flower and the ribbon which is sold separately.

The next item I made was a little bag to put it in for gift giving. All it took was a single 12×12 sheet of cardstock, matching trim, diecuts from the project sheet and an embossed cardstock sticker frame that I inked with Tim Holtz alcohol ink to match the trim and another handmade flower and it was ready to go! Love how well everything in this LYB line goes together. 😀 See how my handmade flower stays beautifully dimensional and stands w/o support? That’s all thanks to Helmar’s Liquid Scrap Dots. I don’t know how I ever crafted w/o it!
