Hello everyone! Excuse me for just a second while I stop to do the "happy dance." I am still pinching myself that I am now a part of the BTTB2 Design Team. I am so lucky to be a part of this wonderful creative group that have inspired me for so long. I love the challenges at BBTB2 and this first challenge as part of the DT is a great one.
Melissa is challenging everyone to use a frame from any cart and for a real challenge to use it on a layout. Now if you don't want to do a layout a card is fine too.
I keep quite busy doing layouts of my three precious granddaughters. Before I share my layout I have some exciting news. We found out Friday after two daughters and then three granddaughters we are going to have a grandson in October. I finally get to make baby boy layouts. I am so excited!!!!!!
For my layout today this is Kenzie who is going to be the proud big sister.
I used a Martha Stewart stack
Frame cut from Elegant Edges page 41 at 6.75. I cut the shadow one time and the frame two times so I could pop dot it for dimension.
Cutie is from Elmo and Friends Holiday Cart page 26 cut at 2.5 inches
Bug is cut from the Mickey Font at 2.5 inches
The heart border is also from Elegant Edges page 41 cut at 1.5 inches. I then used the cut out hearts on the frame and title for accents.
The ladybugs along the bottom are from Walk in my Garden page 118 cut at 1.5 and 1.75 inches
The top ladybug is cut from page 119 at 1.75 inches.
I tied bows with a mixture of orange, pink and green twine.
Used my MS ladubyg punch
Added gems to the inside of the hearts on the frame
and chalked all edges
This is the second page of the layout. I kept this page flat.
I would love to read your comments.
I hope you will join us this week for the "Frame Challenge" and link up your project to BBTB2. There are a lot of great frame carts so this should be a fun challenge. I can't wait to see what everyone creates. Happy Craftin!
