YOU MAKE ME SMILE

good morning everyone! i was able to finish a LO again last night or should i say early, early this morning LOL! like most of you i like to scrap while everyone's asleep. this is my second LO from my SCRAPBOOK NOOK OCT KIT and i'm telling you the LILY BEE CATCHING FALL collections are beautiful and the JILLIBEANS corrugated shapes are my new fave. this LO is for SKETCHY THURSDAY NOV GDT challenge with a twist where they ask to use color orange and punch tool. this is also for SCRAPPING THE MUSIC featuring the song BUBBLY by Colbie Caillat. here is my take on this challenges-


SUPPLIES: PP's: Lily Bee, MME, Crate Paper. Cardstock: Recollecttions. Ink: Tim Holtz distress ink. Stickers: Crate Paper. Flowers: BasicGrey, Jillibean Corrugated shapes. Bird: Jillibean corrugated shapes. Alphas: BasicGrey Alpha stickers. Paints: Craft Smart and FolkArt acrylic paints. Others: Tattered Angels glimmer mist, Ranger Stickles, twine, ribbon bloomers, DMC floss, vibtage buttons, Jillibean sugar picks, tacky glue, foam adhesive.

i think i went stitching crazy on this one LOL! i love how they turned out though. can you see the "love" i stitched on to the photo? i love this technique although my arthritis is kicking in, my wrist is hurting from too much stitching- old age LOL! i used the same technique i used on my previous LO on the corrugated shapes- i dry brushed it, sprayed some glimmer mist, ink the edges, i added some Distress stickles on the edges, and added beautiful vintage buttons. i was heaving a hard time thinking of a good title for this one, i have a picture in my head how i want my title will be in my LO and just needed a good title to go with it. i went blog hopping and found that Bubbly by Colbie Caillat was the song of the week at SCRAPPING THE MUSIC- so i used part of the song as the title and i am very happy with it.
