ScrapFit Challenge #15

Scrapfit Challenge #15
Scrap yourself! This layout should be all about you! The title should read " A day in the life of..." or something quite similar with a small twist.

I added the twist to my title and changed day to moment.

I added Crackle Accents to the butterfly and chipboard button (flower center).

Using my cricut and Walk in My Garden cartridge, I cut the same flower in 5 sizes. Before layering them, I applied Distress ink to the edges, and Distress crackle paint to the petal tips. As the paint dried, the ink bled which added to the distress look. Turned out pretty cool, I think! I finished it off by layering and adding the chipboard button.

For the smaller flowers, I also cut flowers using Walk in My Garden cartridge in the cricut. This time I only cut two layers. Again, I inked the edges with distress inks. I hand cut a sloppy circle slightly larger than the flowers. Using the demin as the bottom layer, I stacked the paper flower layers on top and finished with a corduroy brad.

For a bit of texture and interest, I placed a few of the words on different color paper and attached them to the journaling with pop dots.

Sooo...I've got to tell you a quick secret about the photo...shhhh...don't tell on me though!! I was taking photos of my daycare kids when I ran to the mirror and took a couple quick shots of myself for the layout. I am wearing a ratty old sweatshirt with baby spit on the shoulder and eyeliner is the only makup I have on! I was pleasantly surprised with the shot concidering I was looking like a mess in the middle of a crazy day!

It is also my turn to create a challenge for the ScraFit Forum. I don't know about you, but I am very much in the mood for something springy! I found these fun papers from We R Memory Keepers and decided to create these cute little purses. They kind of remind me of Easter Baskets...maybe it is just the fun springy colors and patterns. Speaking of patterns....that is my March challenge to you! I want to see plaid and polka dot! You can create a layout, card or altered item....whatever you heart desires. My only requirement is a mix of plaid and polka dot! Have fun and don't forget to share!!

This little bee is a stamp the coordinates with the paper line. Isn't he adorable!!! I stamped onto yellow paper, added some stickles to the wings, and attached with a pop dot!

Thanks for stopping by!!
