How Many Challenges...

can you fit into 1 layout??!!  Well for this layout, the answer is 4!!

1.  Frosted Designs:  lo or project about friends

2.  Scrappin Chics Challenge Blog:  use a Sun & inspirational saying

3.  Club CK:  Use fabric on your lo or project

4.  Creative Scrappers:  Sketch #159

For my fabric strip, I just cut 1x8 inch strips, folded them in half, and then knotted the closed end.  My Sun was a really fun embellie to make.  I punched about 40 little flowers with my Marvy punch and then cut out a 3 inch circle.  I started on the outside edge of the circle, placing a row of flowers all the way around and then just kept layering to the center.  Once I had all of my flowes attached, I sprayed it with adhesive and sprinkled it with Fairy Dust Glitter.  And YAY, I got a new toy yesterday...the Fiskars Paper Crimper (I'm sure corrugated alphas and embellies will be showing up on all of my lo's from now on!!).  I used it to add texture to the circles for the two flower centers and on my butterflies.
