 Another lovely sketch to play with this month on Blue Fern Studios blog!
 This is the sketch for this month's challenge.
I used the gorgeous Attic Charm papers for this layout. love the soft pinks and beige!
I borrowed these photos of these two cuties playing together. They were a perfect choice for this double photo layout!
I used the gorgeous ironwork design chipboard. I used gesso to prime the piece then added pink, petal and garnet embossing powders to it.  I used the dark garnet to try and pull the color from the daisies into the layout.
I kept my title simple on a busy page.
A little angel resin from Prima. I tinted her wings with gold mist to bring her out of the page a bit more. I also did some random stamping around the page for added dimension.
I used both Prima and Blue Fern blooms for this page. I absolutely love the gold shimmer on the Attic Roses!
It was the worst day for shooting ever today. A blizzard prevented me from going outside and after a long day at work I struggled with trying to get this page snapped. Absolutely nothing wanted to work! Probably because I am down with the flu ugh! :(  But I did learn one thing today! I learned that I am going to build a photo box!! That's it for now! Thanks for dropping by. All the best! :)

 There is a new challenge up on the More Than Words blog! Ombre is the word of the month!  
 This is my interpretation of it. I used various shades of yellow until I hit gold. I used various shades of Shimmerz Spritz Egg Noggin, Glorious Day, Tuscan Sun, Carribean Sunset as well as some yellow embossing powder and wheat ink.
This is the challenge.
I also used various shades of yellow flowers all from Prima. I got to use up some of my really old stock for this layout! I also used some of my new rhinestones that I bought from Marta Lapkowska's Etsy!
Used various stencils to add my background in different shades. Also used Gabrielle's stencil to add some texture to the page.
Last close-up of the Ombre effect. I found this challenge quite challenging! It took me three tries to get it to look good. For the change element of the challenge I used one of my favorite quotes " Use your smile to change the world, don't let the world change your smile."
And of course we have our lovely prizes so don't forget to head over to the blog to check them out!
That's it for me today I am off to work. :(
Have a great weekend! All the best! :)
