Love You **TCR 87** **Scrap That!**

Happy Hump day everyone….well today was a bit of a BLOG nitemare actually but I think I got it all figured out now…<<<fingers crossed!  For some reason my background just went all wonky on my blog…eeek! Poor Vicky, it happened to her too! I picked a crow on my header because I LOVE THEM!!!!! I know most ppl hate them but to me they are so interesting and entertaining J  Ok so on with my layout…this was for this weeks palette at The Color Room and I also used this month sketch from ScrapThat! When I first saw the palette I thought …oh oh…and nothing came to mind for it! I had these OLD prima flowers, I think they may have been the first Prima ever made..yepp that old…but they were too bright…so hey why not spray paint them! And I did! Well that got me started and it all came together. I love this photo of my grandson..so innocent and so happy! I love the way this layout turned out and it is already in a frame and on my wall!



I used lots of layers, lots of distressing and added some gesso and then did some snowflake masking on top of it with glimmer mists. The chippys are all painted white first then I embossed them with my cuttlebug for texture. I then added some smooch paints and more glimmer mists to get the right colors. The snowflake is from my snowflake tutorial. You can find the link on my left side bar.

Here is a close up of the flower cluster, I added in a few more new Prima goodies with the old ones and tucked in a few snowflakes that I cut with my cricut. Love the cute lil ceramic pieces on the photo corners.

Ok well that is it for now. I just posted a challenge over at Scrap That! with this sketch! The prize is amazing, anyone can play!  I will be back tomorrow and Friday with more creations to share. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
