Still working on layouts for my darling nephew's baby book, and I'm trying to do it without buying new paper or new embellishments. I'm trying really hard to make his first year book about using what I've already got!
I altered the little reindeer - bought at Hobby Lobby at the after Christmas sale last year - with some stickles on their scarves and some dimensional black paint for their eyes. Then I touched the fourth one with some red stickles for his Rudolph nose and added jingle bells to all four. It wasn't a lot of work and I think it took them from "just out of a package" embellishments to "kickin' it up a notch" page elements.
This is for a couple of challenges - actually my FIRST for the month of July.
#1. Page Maps ETC Challenge, Sketch #3
#2. Feel like...Celebrating A Holiday Challenge
#3. It's also my #2 of 20 for the 20/20 Challenge. I'm a bit behind -- gonna have to really work to get caught up in this one!
