Thank you so much friends!!! :)


Nyc 2010

Hello there my friends! Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes on my Tweet post, emails and via Facebook!!! :) 

Today's layout features my sister. In NYC. I was determined to upcycle this brown paper bag I had in my stash (too beaten up to use as a gift bag) so I really worked all my elements around it...*LOL*


I added some blue paint with a brayer for the sky (love the effect!) A cut-out cloud and birds...:) A little handstitching to create a little pocket for the pull-out tag.


I used the sketch at Get Your Sketch On, Prima papers, Gauche Alchemy Envy Green Mixed Media Color Kit, punchinella, Crochet doiley, SRM stickers, American Crafts puffy stickers, paint, thread, tag and string.

P/s: You have till Friday to submit your entries for my guest Michelle's Get out of your comfort zone challenge! I will be showcasing another amazing guest tomorrow! :)

*Edited* I won challenge #11 over at Get Your Sketch On with this layout! :)
