Libby Grandkids


Here's a layout that was submitted at Sketches 4 All for their April 2013 Monthly Mayhem 1-2-3 Challenge (APR123).

The challenge is to use:
1 photo
** 2 colors only
3+ embellies

** And, I didn't read ALL the directions... because I used the colors green and creams... and cream is not considered a "color" so I basically only used greens!  Oh well.  I submitted it anyhow... simply because I love how this turned out... and it took me forever to complete it!

Here's the Libby group!  It took a LOT of planning and scheduling to come up with a date that everyone could get together to have these professional photos taken... and the result was so worth it!

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Perfect Pearls Mist: Mint
Flowers/Leaves/Green "tails"
Glitter Gems: Home Made
Decorative Trim
"Libby" Cardstock Letters
Chipboard Letters
Sketch: Page Maps (Apr 2005)

The flowers look white, but they're cream.  Love those green "tails" which I found in my stash (not sure what they're called) and I only had two of them.  The gems are home made.

I layered several of the large flowers and knotted ribbon for the center.  Leaves were added under the flower and gems are scattered around the flowers.

I distressed the edges of each letter.

I misted just under the photo.  The edges of each chipboard letter was distressed.

A closer look at the flowers, misting and gems.

These are the sweetest!
Here's the left side of my page.

 Another look at the flowers and gems.

 Decorative trim was added along the bottom of my page.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
