Divine @ 49


Hi friends!  How's the week treating you so far?  I have found a new challenge site through a friend and fellow scrapper, Val, of Val-Belle's Ramblings.  This lovely lady who calls South Africa home finds the neatest challenge sites!  What's the deal with this one?  Well it's called Challenge YOUrself, so often as scrappers we are always behind the camera, rarely in front of it.  This challenge site changes that. Like it our not, you have to be in the pic!  This months challenge is Celebrate Your Age.  Just click on the title to check it out.

Onto my layout.  I used my Swirlydoo's Kit Rose Bouquet from June.  Just delightful and gorgeous. Packed with beautiful Kaisercraft papers and awesome embellies, I had a blast.  Please visit them, there is a boutique, a sketch challenge, actually several challenges and you don't need to be a subbie to play or join the forum! I also used a sketch from the very talented Miss Emma Stafrace of Page Drafts. Give a click my friends, she is bringing back the mojo, no joke!  Here is the sketch I used, #33.2















LOVE this sketch folks!  So pretty. I riffed on it a bit to make it my own and am darn happy.

A couple of pics of the process -

First I cut out the middle of this frame paper from Kaisercraft and placed it on top of the floral paper.


Then I start laying on my embellies to see how I want them to go.












Last is the gluing on when it's all where I like :)











Here is the finished piece -











Such gorgeous papers here.  Just loved this kit!  I used some lovely Blue Fern Studios chippie from my stash that I snazzied up and cut in two for tucking in.  Can you see the little gold micro-beads on some of the foliage?  Got some inspo for that from Di Garling.  An amazing artist for sure.  The other leaves I cut on my cricut as well as the title.  The pretty rhinstone mat was in my kit, I cut it to put under the pics and still have more left!  The wood veneers are from Prima, yup in my kit.  So was the coral lace.  Some Lindy's and a bit of stickles and this puppy is in the can :)

Edit- *GASP* I forgot to put my journaling which is on the back.  It says "I am 49. In two months I will be a half a century old! I don't feel it, I don't act it.  Almost fifty years I've been here gaining wisdom, raising children, enjoying life, living!  I hope the next fifty is just as good.  Yes I plan on being here ;) but for right now I'm divine at 49!
