Scrap & Stamp's Second Challenge!

This week's challenge was to create a LO with a nature theme and use a Sweet 'n Sassy image(s) on your LO. Easy enough! What says nature more than flowers? I took a bunch of pics of my garden and created my LO around that. I used some Making Memories and Basic Grey's Lime Ricky paper. To tone it down, I inked the edges and gave it a wash with diluted white paint. I also pulled out my Glimmer Mist and screen to create the piece under the title. I loved the pop of red! The letters were cut out of craft foam. I incorporated a doily and some other vintage goodies into the LO, as well as that sweet lil' Sweet 'n Sassy butterfly.







Head on over to the Scrap & Stamp blog to see the other fabulous LO's by the DT!
I will be at Craft Fancy in Arlington Heights, IL, all day! I will be doing a JustRite Demo as well as a Make n Take. If you live in the area be sure to stop by and say hi!

What a beautiful page. I love how you did the tag/journeling element. Cute butterfly image! And I love the idea of creating a title with foam. I just bought some foam for the first time yesterday, and I'm anxious to try it in my cuttlebug.
