i create

Hi everybody! Hope you're having a great weekend and have had a chance to get some crafting done. I look forward to the weekends because I know I can always get a couple hours of uninterrupted time in my craft room! Have you all seen the new lines by My Mind's Eye? I fell in LOVE with their new papers and embellishments! Had to get my hands on some, and could not wait to create something with them! I am simply loving the weathered wood look, especially with the florals. The new challenge over at Once Upon a Sketch is to make a layout about YOU. I don't do that often, but am not as hesitant about doing layouts of myself as some others are. So long as I have a good photo! PhotoShop is my friend, haha! Well, here is my layout:

The OUAS challenge is to focus on something about yourself- a talent, things you like, what you enjoy doing, etc. I thought it would be fun to do a project about creating- it's a talent, I like it and I enjoy doing it!! Seriously though, I am really proud of my accomplishments and love that I can get acknowledgement and validation from all you wonderful bloggers for doing something that I love so much!
Here are a few details about my project:
I cut the flourishes and the tree from Cindy Loo. This is one of those carts that I tend to forget about, but so much good stuff on here! The butterfly is from Lovely Floral. All the paper is from the MME Miss Caroline line. I like to use patterned paper for titles and die cuts. I added some liquid pearls to the butterfly to accentuate her a little bit, and popped her up on foam dots to lift off the page.
I wasn't planning on putting a tree on this layout, but when I saw this cut I had to do it! The layers are popped up on foam dots to add dimension, and that darling button is from Prima. So cute! I added some kraft twine as well.
Pulled out an oldie but a favorite for the title- All Mixed Up. I have always loved this font!
So. I hope you have enjoyed my project today!
