Well, I after a very exciting night of tornados, lighting and thunder storms, and about 3 hours of sleep, my pregancy insomnia kicked in this morning at 5:00 am. Ahh the joys of pregancy! Since I was up I decided to spend some more time in my newly organized stamipn space and complete a few more challenges!
SC #182 & CC #171
I love both of these challenges! First, I have already professed my love of the color challenge with Soft Sky, Basic Black and Kraft, but I am loving this layout! It's cute, simple and makes great cards and scrapbook pages! I made 2 cards that can be used in a 6x6 scrapbook, so I'll be sending these out to the grandparents. The base is a 6x6 kraft square, I then used my Marvy scalloped square punch to make the Basic Black squares. The designer paper is one I have been hoarding for too long, so I decided to use it, the squares are 1 3/8" and the Soft Sky layer behind it is 1 1/2". After I assembled each piece, I used my uniball white gel pen to make the dots in the scallops. The photo is from my DD 2 year photos (she just turned 4) and my dear friend, the best photographer around Tracie Jacobs took these. Lily was looking at the hole in the tree saying it's where Owl from Winnie the Pooh lived. Any way, I layered the photo on Soft Sky and Basic Black. Because my first card front smeared (I used white craft), I ended up used a piece of acetate to put the sentiment on it with winter white EP. I attached it with black brads and tied Soft Sky and hemp twine thru the holes. That's it! I'll post the other card later that I did.
