Ideas for Scrapbookers DT

I am pleased to announce that I am now a contributing artist for Ideas For Scrapbookers along with my Scrap That! team member Lisa. I have been a follower for a long time since most of my scrappy icons have been featured there at some point. This is a site that offers spectacular tips and tutorials, sketches and FREE digi templates, information about cool products and frequently showcases great scrappy talent on Fridays. Thank you so much Pam for inviting me to join your wonderful team!

This is my first project for them using a fabulous sketch by Cathy Dippolito... check out http://ideasforscrapbookers.blogspot.com for the sketch and to see what the rest of the DT created. I wasn't sure how much of myself I really wanted to reveal to the world... but my hubby pushed me to scrap one of his favorite pictures that he took of me (at a whopping 8 months pregnant with my third and last child). No smiles, I was SO sick the entire pregnancy. I look big in this picture but I had only gained 15 pounds the entire pregnancy from throwing up so much. Why the "sublime" title then? After 2 boys I was having a girl - worth all the torture in the world, LOL.


I used the Color Room palette 45 and the papers are the new K and Co. Flora and Fauna papers along with some Dusty Attic chipboard I won from a draw on DT member Jen Burns' blog. I just used chalk ink (without priming first) to keep a dark wood color. The flowers are cut from a stem I bought at Michaels.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enter my Watermark Challenge (with RAK) and Chipboard draw while you are here on my blog.
