Creative Scrappers Sketch #149 Reveal

(Scrap That! Blog Hop - scroll to next post)

It's Sunday, DT reveal day for Creative Scrappers! I haven't done a "clean" (non-shabby) layout in a while so I thought I'd switch it up a bit. I used the very last scraps from my January Scrap That! kit since the colors were perfect for my son's very fist school photo (pre-school, LOL).

The papers are MME Lost and Found - Union Square (love these!). Aphra Bolyer's sketch was so easy to work with but my bling was not. I tried some dollar store bling - pretty but VERY difficult to work with (you get what you pay for!). The butterfly was also from my wonderful dollar store. I made the wheel "flowers" with scraps too - great embellie for guy lo's.

Notice the Dusty Attic fence? It's listed in my Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto) along with the rest of my shipment from Australia. I just used some chalk ink on it - love the texture it gives my page.

Here is the wonderful CS sketch #149 this week.

Don't forget to head over to Creative Scrappers (http://creativescrappers.blogspot.com) to check out what the rest of the team created this week too!

i know exactly what you mean about the Dollarama bling - sometimes it's not worth saving a little money - hehe Your layout turned out really nice though. Your son is a cutie!
