Country Boy

If you are looking for the Scrap That! Blog Hop click here!

Happy Sunday everyone! Wow it is almost the end of the month and I have been meaning to do the Prima BAP sketch this month and finally had some time yesterday to make it. I also used this weeks palette from TCR. When I first saw the palette I thought to myself..ewww…gross hehe…but you know what..I LOVE IT NOW! I really do like the colors together on this layout. The photos are of my grandson, and his mom was blowing bubbles at him and he was just so amazed by them. Such a cutie J I did lots of distressing, machine stitching, and some stamping.



In these close ups you can see all the Prima flowers and goodies. The stitching is kind of hard to see..but it is there J Tucked in behind the flowers is a Dusty Attic border piece.


I inked the letters and added some liquid pearls to them. You can see the stamping that I did in the back ground.

One more close up of all the layers and distressing.

Ok well that is it for today. I am running fantastic challenge at Scrap That! this month, with a PION prize pack and you have until Midnight tonite to still get in on all of the gorgeous blog hop prizes...so head on over to the Scrap That! blog and hop along with us.

Another gorgeous page! I did have to laugh at your eeew, though, because I put TCR on my to-do list this week because I love the pallette so much. Think Laced with Grace. I usually always love their sunroom pallette .. but that's just me! Have a fab week!
