i'm finally ready with my 2nd layout for the big sketch challenge at my creative scrapbook:-)
the sketch was designed by the very TALANTED julie bonner. she created a very CHALLENGING sketch. you can use so many techniques on it! for me it was pretty difficult to decide when to stop adding new things and finally finish my layout:-)
here is the result from all the "hard" work i did:
i took these pictures when SWEET LITTLE THEO was almost 3 months old. it was almost impossible to make him look at the camera and "sit" in his sheep-bucket at the same time. from about 50 shots i have only 4 nice ones! on this layout you can see two of them.
the background paper is tailor-made from me. i cut a lot of 1" circles and stitched them to a blue cardstock. then i punched them in the middle and i squeezed the ribbon through. finally, i added the rhinestones, which were originally clear, but with a little help from my FAVOURITE copic ciao markers i gave them the colour i wanted:-)
the note lines are made with PRIMA clear stamp.
i used the SWEET "lullaby lane" paper line from webster's to add romantic paper cuts. and some more lambs of course:-)
and more lambs...
and because it is a boyish layout - a little toy train:-)
thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!
best wishes for the NEW 2011 YEAR and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
i'm off to catch my plane now. we are leaving for our CHRISTMAS cruise in about 4 hours. YAY!:-)
hugs 'n smiles,
