Five Challenges Rolled into One...

Hello my scrappy friends! I'm so happy that I was finally able to finish another page! I worked on this page for days just trying to figure out what to do. Let me tell you  I made many changes! Here's the challenges I used!  I choose to use the sketch from Get Picky Sketch Challenge #7.



I choose to flip the sketch!


Whimsical Wednesday is a new challenge blog and I was so excited to participate in the first  month of challenge's on the blog! The challenge was to make a home decor project and you could use Easter as your theme! I went with the Easter theme after looking through my old photo albums. I'm using this page as home decor right now during Easter by placing it on a stand. It's fun to look back and see my kids when they were so young!


The Lollipop Ladies is a new challenge blog to me and I thought it fit perfectly with my page. For the challenge we were to be inspired by Easter eggs & Sparkly. I added Easter eggs in my design and added glitter glue on top to give it sparkle! I also wanted the shimmer in the inspiration photo and I used a shimmery ribbon and sewed a pattern on it to mimic Easter eggs with DNC floss I also added more sparkle with gems!



 I was also able to use Crop Suey's challenge which was to make homemade embellies using your scraps. I made my flowers out of scraps! I also used scraps in my title and used scrap ribbon which I made homemade because I hand stitched the detail on the ribbon!

Frosted Designs was the last challenge I fit into my project, which was to make your own embellishments.  As above I said I made my some of my flowers and sewing on the ribbon.

Hope you like my page!
Thanks for stopping by:)

Kim your LO is so adorable. All of the details are just gorgeous! I am so sorry that you missed linking this up. Each challenge is opened for two weeks so the scrapbooking challenges closed last night at midnight. You can say that you are going to put this in a frame and hang it on a wall and enter into the current spring/Easter home decor project.:)
