LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

hello everyone! happy sunday to all of you! finally finished another LO using my SCRAPBOOK NOOK Sept kit. i know, i'm so late using this kit i still have my Oct kit waiting for me. i just LOVE, LOVE the CRATE PAPER RESTORATION collection. i love the colors, the patterns, and most of all the vintage feel of it... beautiful collection! I made this LO using CRATE PAPER THE SKETCH CHALLENGE_ OCTOBER EDITION 2010. Miss Emily Pitts the CP Sketch contributor did an amazing job on the sketch she provided this month and i just love it. here is my take on her sketch-


SUPPLIES: SCRAPBOOK NOOK Sept KIt- PP's: Crate Paper Restoration Collection. Kraft: MME's. Cardstock: Bazil Basics. Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Stickers: Crate Paper. Chipboards: CRate Paper. Embellies: Jillibean Corrugated Cardboard shapes, Crate papers vintage buttons, K&Company. Alphas: BasicGrey, Making Memories. Others: Twine, DMC floss, Ranger Stickles, Smart Craft acrylic paints, Tattered Angels Glimmer mist, Gel pens, Tacky Glue, Recollections foam adhesive.

i altered the sketch a little bit, instead of using squares i used circles and dropped the numbers from 16 to 9 circles. i did all the hand-stitching on each circles and Jylian's name and 2010 on Jylian's photo. lots of cutting, distressing, and inking as usual. i was so happy to have capture Jylian smiling because she is always on the move and like DIVA she doesn't want her pictures taken. i forgot, i also tried Lucy Edson's technique of printing photos on patterned paper although i only used printed paper with a very subtle print on it and i didn't have gesso on hand- see the two smaller photos of Jylian?
i hope you enjoy it as much as i enjoyed creating it. have a wonderful day and God Bless!
