Hello my Scrappy Friends! Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! A good weekend for me is when I can fit in some time to get in my scrap room! Here's a page I did using the sketch from Frosted Designs sketch along Tuesdays sketch #36. I had some fun with this one combining it with the Tic Tac Toe challenge over at The Paper Variety.
Here's my page!

First of all I cut the big circle out of the bottom layer to conserve paper, then I used my Tim Holtz distresser on the edges of the paper and then inked up the edges.

A few close ups.
I really thought this dinosaur needed eyelashes so I made some!  I also made some crazy spring flowers that I'm sure they had back in the time of dinosaurs in the stone age! I used Lacelon ribbon that I melted the edges and topped it off with a cardboard circle that I inked and topped it off with a bright yellow button in the center!

I not only inked my edges but used some chalk as well! I added foam tape under the dinosaurs to make them pop off the page! Don't you just love goggle eyes! Love them!!!
The picture was edited in Picasa's picnic program!

Here's the sketch-

 Layout Sketch #36

Here's the path I took with 

1.Black & White photo,
2. Spring theme- I made the flowers from what I think would have come from the stone age!! 
3.Include stitching- I machine stitched!

The paper I used was My Minds Eye- Complete Boy  and The Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll leave me a comment & I will come over and leave you one too:)
