Love This Sweet Girl / My Scraps & More

Happy Friday, friends!  Today marks our 8th Got Talent Challenge at My Scraps & More!  I'm up on the our forums and our Facebook group.  I hope you will join in with us!

The challenge this week has two parts.  The first part is to use some plastic packaging from some of your scrapbook supplies and use it somehow to create an embellishment.  I created a see-through shaker pocket full of chunky glitter.  The packaging contained a set of brads.  I cut both ends off and machine stitched through one end.  I poured some glitter inside and then stitched the other end closed. It was really fun to make!  I have never done this before, so it was neat to give a whirl.

The second part of the challenge is to draw or paint at least one word of your title.  I used watercolors and a paint brush to paint the word "LOVE" onto white cardstock.  Then I cut it out and combined with alpha stickers.

I used the gorgeous Simple Stories So Fancy collection, and let me tell's stunning!  I love the colors...just beautiful.  Get yourself some of it HERE.

I jazzed up the background a bit with a few blue shades of Distress Ink and a Crafter's Workshop stencil.  I also added in a few splatters with my brush and some splatters of gold Color Shine.

I found a sketch circle die cut in the Silhouette Store and used as a layering piece behind my photo along with a few patterned papers and some tissue paper.  I also added in some tangled thread, a few heart die cuts, a brad an some enamel dots.

Check out this shaker pocket!  I love turned out so much better than I thought it would!  I added in blue, purple and gold chunky glitter I found at Michael's.  I also fell in love with that gorgeous dream catcher die cut from the collection.

And here's a shot of the hand-painted title.  I love how it turned out, too!  My small alphas are from the Basic Grey Prism sticker sheet.

Here's a look at how I put this all together if you'd like to take a look.....hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
