Creative Belli Challenge #103 and Our Craft Lounge Sketch Challenge #36

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use Flocking or Flower Soft!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #162 and the adorable stamps called Home Tweet Home by Technique Tuesday. They were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Dusty Durango, and More Mustard. Sewing was done around the edges, Flower Soft was added to the bird house, and the twine bow, Candy Dots, and frindged twill finish it off.

Stamps: Technique Tuesday
Paper: White, Dusty Durango, Really Rust, Fall Harvest dp from K&Co.
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Dusty Durango, More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Flower Soft, Sewing Machine, Twill, Twine, Candy Dots, EK Success Scalloped Border Punch

This is for a few other challenges:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - lets get punchy
2. Creative Card Crew - punches
3. Let's Ink It Up - make a scene
4. Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge - punches and die cuts
5. Daring Cardmakers - Autumn leaves
6. Stampin for the Weekend - Halloween/fall

Be sure to visit the Creative Belli Design Team Member's blogs to read more details about their designs. You will find lots of awesome ideas!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC103 in the keywords section.

Our Craft Lounge Sketch Challenge #36
Scrapbook Layout
I was really excited when I saw the Our Craft Lounge's Sketch Challenge this week was a scrapbook layout!!! I have started doing a few scrapbook pages and I thought this one was great!!! I have so many pictures of my kids and grandkiddos that I could fill out hundreds of scrapbooks so It's a good thing I got started...LOL!!!
I'm not very good at this but with time, I may get better...that may be wishful thinking...Teeheehee!!

I took my colors from the fish paper called Camping Out by Bella Blvd...My DGD CJ (who is now 15) isn't a very girly girl so I think she will approve of these colors. She went fishing with her Uncle David and her Grandpa a few years ago and had a great time. The stamps from Our Craft Lounge called Fishing With Dad were stamped with Old Olive and the fishing line was drawn on with a creamy Caramel marker.

Fish from the paper were cutout and attached and a ribbon and silver fish brad are the finishing details.

This was just tooo much fun......I'll have to do this more often!!!
Thanks for dropping by...have a great day!!!
