Sketchabilities #139/ Scrap Our Stash #26 Stash Challenge

Hey everyone. I've been away for abit but am back with a few layouts to share. I finished this layout at a crop I attended last weekend. It was hosted by My Stamping Studio in Windsor. What a weekend we had!!! Lots of fun and great ladies. Highly recommended for sure!!  This is a school photo of my daughter when she was in grade one. That evil little look sums her up pretty well!!  I used two challenges when creating this page.  The sketch was the #139 sketch from Sketchabilities. I also took part in Scrap Our Stash's #26 Stash Challenge. For this challenge you had to include an item from your stash for each letter in the word emboss.  I used the following:

E: evergreen bough distress paint
M: My Mind's Eye pattern paper
B: buttons, border punch
O: oval chipboard frame
S: stencil, stain (distress)
S: stitching, Sam

For the background, I applied some distress paint through a stencil. Once it was dry I spritzed it with water and applied some distress stain.  Once this was dry I splattered more distress stain.

The flowers were made from an EK Success punch. The little white ones were from Maya Road.  The greenery was cut from a Sizzix die.

The oval chipboard frame was also from Maya Road. I  painted the frame with distress paint and covered the oval part with paper.  The pattern paper was from My Mind's Eye 'Now and Then Milo' collection.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
