{Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop!}

Browsing some blogs yesterday, I found this blog hop at Scrapbook Challenges - with a beautiful sketch. I felt inspired to participate. :)

Here is my lay-out ~

{jan}

My lo looks a tiny bit crooked from the first photo, but I can assure you this type A personality would not allow any crookedness. LOL!! ;) I used Fancy Pants "Road Show" pp & acrylic overlays, Prima pp, chip & bling, ek snowflake punch, handmade flowers inked w/TH vintage photo ink and machine stitching. You can't really tell from the photo, but the piece of pp that is swirled underneath the overlay at the bottom of the lo has masked snowflakes. I used frost glimmer mist and IRL, it looks so pretty. All of the flowers & snowflakes were misted as well. :)

A special shout-out of thanks to my dear friend, Jan Tatomir, for sending me these flowers last week for my 50th birthday. {{big hugs, jan!!}} :) :)

Thanks to Scrapbook Challenges too!! Now I'm off to comment on all of the beautiful los that have participated in this fun hop.
Thank you for coming by my blog!! I so appreciate your sweet comments - they always make me smile.

hugs, patti

What a beautiful LO! I love the 3D flowers and the color combo! I'm the same way when it comes to crookedness! I have to have everything straight on my LOs! I think mine is a little crooked, but the way I did my LO you might not be able to tell! :)
