Artful Delight Entry & one more

I found a cute new blog with fun contests! It's called Artful Delight, and I created this layout for their latest contest. Here is the sketch:

Here is my layout. I misted the background in pink, and then traced a big bracket shape onto patterned paper. I stitched around the edges. I used a Martha border punch and lots of ink. I created hybrid flowers...part crinkled up misted paper, part packaged flower. I inked and stickled the brads in the middle. Paige had three teeth here...the top two are there, but it's hard to see with the shadowing.

Here's one more...same photo shoot. I always take way too many pictures, and it's so hard not to scrap them all! Luckily, my photo printer can print 2x2 pictures, so I can work with multiple prints on the same page :)

I got a few Cricut Lite cartridges for Christmas from my mom, and I used the Lite Lacy Labels cartridge to cut the big pink scalloped circle. I saved all the cut outs and made this cute little flower! I wasn't sure what I was doing...I just started gluing. I added a button, and it turned out pretty cute.


  1. What a wonderful layout! Love that big grin on your Paige's face! Beautiful pastel colors, flowers and I love the stitching! Thanks for joining us at Artful Delight!

  2. This is adorable! I just love love the flowers - especially the one with the button. I have a soft spot for buttons ;) Thanks SO much for playing with us this month in the sketch challenge at Artful Delight!

  3. Thank you so much!! I love experimenting with flowers...there is so much you can do! I appreciate the kind comments :)
