Let's Get Shabby~Challenge #5

Here is my take on this month's Let's Get Shabby challenge. The challenge this month was to make an embellishment and it has to be the focus of your page. The very first thing you have to see when you look at the page. For those of you who know me, I love my Tear Bears! Here is a closer look at my sweet little bear. I use extra thick mulberry paper and tore it free form, no pattern. I used diamond stickle (my absolute favorite) to add to the dress and pearls for her earrings and necklace. The paper is Prima's stitched papers, ribbon, pearls, bird and flowers.

Oh, I guess I should mention that the other cute little girl is my daughter, Gabby when she was 5 yrs. old. She was dressed up for Mother's Day Dinner.

Thanks for stopping bye!

Swirlydoo's Oct. Kit~Antique Linen

Swirlydoo's Antique Linen October Kit Here are two layouts that I created using this Swirlydoo's October Kit. I finally got to do more than one layout so, I'm thrilled. ;o)

Here is a close up and another one of the sweet bird embellishments from my sweet friend Toni!
This one was made for this layout! The color combo is perfect! I have the last one on my desk where it will stay for a while for me to admire and cherish what a great friendship. ;o)

Here is the layout I did using Tim's technique to make the barb wire fencing.

This is the layout I did for the sketch challenge at Swirlydoo's using another great sketch by Beggahuna. Love the way this came out and wasn't it nice of Tim to wear a shirt for me that matches perfect with this paper! LOL

Tapping on your computer screen, Jodie... Hello... hello... are you there? ;o)

Thanks for stopping bye!
