Two layouts - OUAS sketch

TGIF everyone! I have two projects today…both using the sketch from Once Upon aSketch. For the challenge this time around you had to journal about a dream holiday or vacation. I have always wanted to go on a vacation with my brothers and their wives and finally we all got to go to Vegas on a trip..and it was so much fun with them! I have used papers from Basic Grey, flowers from Petaloo and have done lots of stamping on this layout.


Here you can see the stamping behind the flower cluster, one of my fav stamps.

The journaling section.

And finally the larger flower cluster with stamping at the top and bottom of the page. Love my LaBlanche stamps and one of my goals this year is to use them more.

Ok for my next layout you get to meet Uncle Baxter, and this is for the American Idol Challenge at the Flying Unicorn but I have used the same sketch. Uncle Baxter is my grandsons dog and yes he is “sexy” …well so he thinks he is anyways! I had to use the title from a song for my layout title. I have used I am Sexy and I know it by LMFAO. I have also used this months Kit from the Flying Unicorn to create this layout.

I have done lots of distressing, some machine stitching and added some liquid pearls to the circles. The background has bits of gesso painted on it and the grass chippys are from Dusty Attic.

The chippy is first painted white, than I used some olive glimmer mist on it and some Mandarine Glam on the tops. I found a couple of doggy footprint stickers in my stash and added them to the layout. That is Uncle Baxter !

Well that is it for today…I will be back tomorrow for the Flying Unicorn Blog Hop. The prizes are amazing and I hope to see you there! Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping :)
