Cropstop Challenge #59

I normally do cards for challenges but this is a layout I completed last night and I see that it fits a couple of challenges this week . I followed a sketch I found on MME blog but did my own spin on it . It's a layout of my new grand daughter taken when she was only a week old.
Supplies used : Paper MME Madison avenue ( love this collection) Bazzil C/S. Spellbinders bella rose die, maury retro flower punch and corner punch,EK success scallop edge punch and Fiskars scallop edge punch. Pearls from my stash. The flowers I made from the pattern paper to match the layout.

Valentine Tim's style GM#36

This is my first entry for Grungy Monday over at StudioL3 for quite some time. Although I did have good intention each week but just never seemed to get the time to post . This week Linda is asking that we make a valentine Tim's style to celebrate Valentines Day . I decided to make a tag for the challenge . Since Tim is starting his new Tags for 2012 this month with a Valentine I though I'd follow his tech. I stamped my background with snow cap acrylic paint dabber using a variety of stamps ,dried with my heat tool and then sponged with DI worn lipstick and festive berries. I like how this color combo turned out . I then wiped over the tag with a damp towel it's amazing how this shows up the white BG images . My heart was made with the honeycomb paper by Inky Antics which I had won in a blog hop so time ago . Tim shows some cool ideas on his blog on using this honeycomb paper. The cupid was stamped on red c/s embossed with clear EP and fussy cut out . I attached a heart border down the right side using the MS heart border punch.Finished off my tag with some pearls, ribbon and key .

Also entering this in a few other challenges .
