{artful delight april challenge!}

~~~~~~~~~~~~
My LSS had a 40% off sale on Friday. I spied the Websters "trendsetter" line and put the pps & journaling cards in my basket like the place was on fire. I love it!!


Artful Delight has a monthly sketch challenge. Here is their sketch for April.


~~~~~~~~~~~~


One of my favorite things to do while paper crafting is mix old product with new product. :) :)


For this lay-out of my niece Sara, I started with a black AC base and layered on some Little Yellow Bicycle. The edges were roughed up and machine stitched. Next, I added my photo to a piece of the Websters trensetters pp. The title letters are by Cosmo Cricket - blackboard chip, in my stash for a while now. The layered flower bases are jillibean soup. I gathered a little piece of gray felt and topped with a Prima pebbles. The butterflies are cut from a trendsetters journaling card. I tied some twine around this piece and pop dotted for added dimension.The trendy girls above were cut from the pp and also pop dotted.


I am so happy with how this page turned out. It was a really fun one to create. {Don't you just love it when the process is fun? Sometimes I sit and can't decide w/a lo. This one came together quickly.}


Thanks to the Artful Delight crew for their sketch inspiration.


Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday! The sun is shining here today. :)


hugs, patti

WOW, fabulous LO! I love all the details and embellishments. That is what is so great about Debbie's sketches, she leaves them a bit "simple" to leave room for so much creativity. That pattern paper is fabulous. Thank you for playing along with Artful Delight this month. :-)
