Just for Fun

Do you ever see a picture that you just have to scrap? Not later, right then!

The other night, my niece came over to scrap and she had this fabulous picture of her daughter. I immediately knew that I had to have a copy. I wasn't scrapping that night, just helping her get some Christmas gifts done. The next morning I woke up, looked at this picture and had to get to work on it right then! I just loved it!!

It was so fun, too! I am the worst about looking at my pages forever before I decide to glue them down. This one just came together so easily! It probably helped that I used so many of my favorite things. lol I know that it is loaded with things, but I love them all! Prima, Pink Paislee, Webster's Pages and lots of glitter! Of course, if you know me, you know it had to have ribbon!

I've been hosting a ribbon challenge at My Creative Scrapbook this month, so I've been trying to think of things I haven't done before with my ribbons. For this page, I took some Bazzill Sheer ribbon and used thread to gather it in places. Where the thread showed, I just put a crystal on top to cover it. Simple and an easy way to add a bit more sparkle.

I was also able to really give this one a lot of dimension because it isn't going into a book. I'm giving it to my niece in a shadow box.




Here are a couple of close ups.

I love these butterflies. They are from the Raspberry Truffle collection at Webster's Pages. I just cut them out and added glitter and crystals to them.


You can better see the results of the ribbon technique here. I also inked the Pink Paislee letters. They are perfect to ink. I just covered the entire surface with a darker pink chalk ink and then used a tissue to wipe off the excess. It really made the edges nice and a little darker to go better with my page.

Thanks for dropping by!
