Scrappy Sunday!

I'm so happy that I had time to do some more scrapping today! I neglected my housework but hey priorities are priorities!! :D

So I finally got this honeymoon pic scrapped. Looking at the finished layout REALLY makes me wish we were back in beautiful Jamaica!!! Or, at the very least, NOT in the middle of the cold, ugly winter!


For this one I hand-cut the scallops and inked the edges of everything with distress ink. The flowers are accented with Stickles and attached to the page with crystal brads and buttons. Then I stitched around the edge of the blue paper to tie it all together.


I submitted this layout for a guest designer contest as well as for a sketch challenge. The sketch was designed by Liz Qualman:


Time to figure out what to cook for dinner. Thanks for stopping by!
