Bloomin Love

Hi everybody! It may very well be that all I get to do is post for SOUS on Friday's until the end of the school year. The days just seem to be whipping by. I have not forgotten the wonderful bloggy buddies who have passed the awards to me, I hope to have time to add those this weekend. Thanx so much for your patience with me. Only a few more weeks of this and then I promise to be a better blogger, I miss all of you so much!!
Now, onto the challenge for this weeks SOUS layout. We do not have a sketch but our challenge this week is to add the most unusual thing to your layout. I add lots of stuff to mine on a regular basis so this really was a challenge for me! I was setting at my crafting table and saw this roll of drywall tape and thought.....hmmmmm what can I do with that!
The papers for this layout are a from The Paper Studio. My photo is of sweet Carsyn...she is so photogenic and always so willing to be in the lime light....I can't help but scrap her! This is one of the pics I snapped last weekend....I hope to scrap more of the weekend as I had five babes altogether!
I used a strip of the dry wall tape and added some ribbon and some embroidery floss to give it some artistic flair....it really is easy and fun to work with! I also cut strips for L,V and E. I added embroidery floss and buttons to the letters and a rose for the O. I curled back a corner of my paper and added some lace ribbon peeking out....I used a scrap of the ribbon at the folded corner.
My butterflies and marquee cuts are from Sentimentals accented both with a few adhesive pearls and some yellow stickles on the butterfly wings. Most of my flowers are silk but I threw in a few left from my tute last week. I also tore three places in the top of the layout, added some more of the lace ribbon and a little satin rose at the bottom.
I've also added some little dragonfly buttons and a little strip of a MS doily punched piece of card stock.
My leaves are all from A Child's Year. I hope you enjoyed my little bloomin beauty (i just think she is so stinkin cute!) and you are all having a fantastic day. Thanx so much for stoppin by to see me....I can't wait to catch up with all of you....If you are looking for a fun challenge lets see what unusual things you can come up with to scrap with....don't forget to go check out the girls and see what they have all done as well!

  12. Sandy, this is super beautiful; those pretty flowers are so perfect for spring and the picture of the little lady is just gorgeous - what a perfect combination! Drywall tape looks like that? HAHA You really did some innovative scrapping using something so very unusual - it's awesome, lady! I love pulling the ribbon through, gives it such a delicate touch. The peeks of the lace behind the paper is elegant. Another superb job from a very talented and beautiful young lady! Have a great weekend, my friend! Thanks for bringing such beautiful sunshine this way! :)
