Hello and Happy Friday! I hope that you have had a good week and are ready for the weekend. We're getting another taste of winter yesterday and today before it warms up for the weekend. Thank goodness we get to have a couple warmer days before the next cold blast (and maybe even a bit of snow) sets in on Monday.
Today the second half of the design team at Scrap Our Stash is up on the blog with our take for this month's Saturday Cartoon Sketch Challenge. Along with the sketch, we are to use a fruit embellishment. Here's a look at the graphic:
I loved Strawberry Shortcake when I was a kid and I guess I had strawberries on the brain because that is the fruit that I decided to go with. I also knew I had pictures of Ada in a sleeper with strawberries on it - and I know I didn't have to go so literal with the challenge - but this is what I came up with - Ada wearing a strawberry sleeper, strawberry paper, and a couple of fussy cut strawberries for embellishments:
All of the papers that I used are from various Bella Blvd collections, with the exception of the darker pink polka dot and I believe it is from a Shimelle collection. I had the "sweet" rubber word on my desk and am so glad that I was able to make it work on this layout.
I actually pulled out my sewing machine and stitched around all of the edges of the papers. After they were attached to the background, I distressed all of the edges. I also used some messy thread in my clusters. Here are a couple of close-ups:
Head on over to Scrap Our Stash to see the rest of the design team's take on this challenge. I would love to see what you create, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a fantastic day!
What a sweet layout. Those photos could not have been more perfect for a Strawberry Shortcake themed page. I really like the details of the sewing and distressing the edges of your papers. Sometimes those little touches make a big difference. Beautiful work. TFS.ReplyDelete
