Scrapping Recipe Challenge #18

The Scrapping Recipe Challenge this week at Sketches! {by Tamara} is to include the following on your project:
  1. Paint
  2. Distressing
  3. Buttons

Be sure to check out the wonderful cards and layouts that were created using this Scrapping Recipe #18!

I used GORGEOUS Cosmo Cricket Wonderland papers. I love that strip tease at the bottom of the page! I added it to two strips of paper that I used my threading water punch on. I actually sewed on six buttons, and I adhered that whole border strip to the bottom of my page. Love it! All of the cardstock edges are chalk ink distressed, including my photo mats and the title piece. The "Together" title is a foam stamp that I used paint on. I just love the way this page turned out! These photos are from 2005. That is my father-in-law in the bottom photo with his gorgeous granddaughters! This was our first Christmas with Princess, and she is proudly standing in front of her stocking!

Well, the Chicago baseball season is OVER! The White Sox lost last night. We're VERY used to saying, "Wait until next year." Oh well!

I'm off to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
