Only 12 more days till Christmas!! Are you ready? I am almost ready. Just a few more presents to wrap for hubby and my mom and then DONE! I am getting so excited! I just love Christmas. I don't know about you but I love seeing the people I love unwrap their presents and see the joy and fun! LOVE IT!
This past weekend I was able to get crafty and the first thing I wanted to do was enter the new Nikki Sivils monthly Challenge. This month was AWESOME and it totally motivated me!
The challenge: Scrap those cell phone photos!!!!!
I don't know about you but I have a TON of cell phone photos and this challenge was calling my name. I had this adorable photo of my Michael after a swim at the pool. I have been wanting to scrap this for awhile now. I knew immediately I was going to use the AMAZING Summer Collection with a little bit of Beatrice thrown in!. I love this collection and with all the beautiful colors. Michael is wrapped in a pink towel so the paper was perfect.
I created the background piece using my Silhouette. I then stitched the two pieces together. I then layered the paper. I also stitched each layer. I just once I had the pieces all in place I misted the papers with some Studio Calico Mister Huey sprays. I then added my photo and then the adorable embellishments. For the little tag- I used a piece of the pattern papers and stamped the "you are perfect" using my jenni bowlin inks and ali edwards stamps. I love that in Nikki's lines there are always THE cutest embellishments. I cut out the rainbow from one of the pattern pieces and added some more clouds around it. I have to say I am really happy with the way this came out.
