I haven't been sleeping much lately, and was wondering why my creative drive suddenly vanished. no warning just *pooF* gone. Well duh! I'm going back to bed after this post, and hopefully Mr. Mojo will be waiting for me tomorrow when I wake up. ( Hopefully Mrs. Patience is there too, my kids miss her horribly!)
This week's challenge at Practical Scrappers is to use flowers. Using flowers isn't really a challenge for most people, but if you're like me, you've got tons of them, and no reason to get them on a layout. While I'm not at all opposed to putting flowers on boy pages, it's not something I do all the time.
I thought of using flowers this week as a base for my layout, instead of just as icing for it. I had seen a really cool layout ( can't seem to find it again-sorry!) with layered circles behind the main photo. I thought- hey why not use flowers instead?
You may recognize the photos of my doggy nephew Winston from a post a few weeks back. He visited again this past week end, and although he's much bigger already, he's still just as cute!
I added Glimmer mist to all my flowers, and an assortment of bling.
Pp: Bella Blvd, Pebbles, Jillibean Soup
Glimmer mist: Tattered Angels ( Raven, Tattered Leather, Coffee House, Pumkin)
Letters: American Crafts, My Little Shoebox
Bling: Martha Stewart, Mark Richards
The dogs were cut using my Cricut ( a Child's Year) and embossed with the swiss dot Cuttlebug folder.
they are cut from kraft paper sprayed with Glimmer mist.
