And what better way to celebrate than with a challenge! Challenges are such FUN!!! Check out this awesome sketch, courtesy of PageMaps.com...
And here is my layout based on the sketch... :)
I've been using the gorgeous collection from Crate Paper "Emma's Shoppe" for my creations this month! :D
For this layout I've used Emma's Shoppe "Dolls" and Emma's Shoppe "Dresses" on a base of Coredinations Cardstock. I've swiped some Kaisercraft White Gloss Varnish over my layout with some scrap paper and I've squirted some Tattered Angels Glimmermist in Coffee Shop (what a versatile colour!!!) into it's lid and dripped some, swiped some, and I even used the lid to do mini coffee mug spill imprints on my layout for something different! I actually did a border (just like the sketch) near the bottom of my layout by using this coffee spill/lid imprint technique and I finished it off by topping each circle off with a white pearl each from Flourish with a Bling... just like cupcakes! ;)
I loved using those cute li'l Prima flowers so much that I not only used them all on this layout, I even used the whole package up! My bottom photo has a bit of the package on the base and the rest of it has been used up at the top...
Now how's that for UPcycling?! What a uber cute photo matte! :)
Now here is my card based on the same sketch...
So basically I've swapped the photos for a lovely image from the aforementioned patterned paper. I fussy-cut this gorgeous girl out, just gave her a li'l bit of a shade with paint (nothing too major) and then I "worked" some creases into her skirt gently with my thumbs for just a little bit of dimension. I then popped a bit of foam tape underneath to add to the effect.
Don't you just love these new American Crafts "Daydream" Thickers? What an awesome colour and font! Super cute!!!
