Climb Up & Up


I have several posts that I want to add to my Blog... trying to "catch up!"  But do we ever "catch up?"  :)

This layout was created for my very FIRST Challenge at Sketches 4 All as a NEW Design Team Member.  I decided on a challenge using CORRUGATED CARDBOARD on your project.

My challenge can be found here and will run for the month of April.  So, you have time to hop on over to Sketches 4 All and check out all the fun challenges they are offering.  It's a great way to get those photos scrapped... and make a few cards to have on hand for when you need them.

Here's what I created using a sketch from Stickers N Fun (Dec 2008).  I found a photo that I thought was perfect for my theme.
This is our son, grandson and daughter checking out the beginning stages of Andrew's tree house.  It was quite "high" up there and I was comfortable staying on the ground!

I used corrugated cardboard as a mat under the photo.  The leaves, fence and flowers are corrugated cardboard also.

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok
Corrugated Cardboard
Various Pearl Mists
Wilton Color Mists
Glass Beads
Sizzix Flower, Leaves & Fence Dies
Chipboard Title Letters
The fence was distressed by peeling off portions of the top layer and scrunching it a bit and finally misting it.  I added a twine bow on the fence also.

 At the top of the corrugated cardboard, I distressed the large banner.  The ribbon was wrapped around the c.cardboard and then I continued another piece of ribbon to finish going to the top of the page.  It was fun to "break" up the line of the ribbon.  The c.cardboard was torn, distressed, inked and misted.

Here's a closer look.

The leaves were also distressed and misted with several mists and ending with a green mist.

I peeled off the top layer of each chipboard letter... only because the colors didn't match.  Then I misted them.
Here's a closer look at the chipboard letters.
I peeled the top layer of each petal and curled them a bit.  Glass beads were added as the flower center.

 Here's a closer look at another flower.  Rather than peel the petals apart, I just curled each petal up.

Thanks for stopping by!
