CHALLENGE YOUrself #7 - Oh BOY!!!

As in the MALES in your life - albeit it animals, humans, bumble bees, I'm sure....long as they're to do with YOU & YOU are in the photo, it's all fine over at CHALLENGE YOUrself! So, this boy is not actually HERE atm - he's working in the good ole USofA [hellooooooo all you USofAers.....!!!!!]......& I sorta went a bit OTT....[cringe.....]
 Old Bo Bunny paper in there....
 A 3rd Eye arrow circle stamp [heat embossed] & a 3rd Eye Flair that I've fussied up with a stamp!!!
 I was given some Kreinik threads from SCRAP365 to 'play with'....like I said....slightly went overboard with them....but some had wire in them & I made hearts...aren't the FUN?????
 ...& more hearts!!!! If you look closely in the background you will see some DIAMOND stamps from 3rd Eye, too....
 ...& then I got out some 3rd Eye Chipboard circles & sort of distress inked & embossed them...they originally looked like this:
...& then those twirly thingos 'made themselves' with the Kreinik thread....look at that LOVELY coppery glimmery thread, too!!!!
Sooooo....it's not MY fault there's so many yummy things to play with *winks*.....thanks for looking!
Lizzy ♥♥♥

  3. Another corker Lizzy...."Too much fun can be wonderful"...what is Mae West that said that. Love all the random gold embossing in the background and of course the hearts. It seems only fitting that you should go overboard when journalling about the boat. Sorry - couldn't help myself :D

  7. So glad you have gotten home ok. I still look at the photos of us and feel so blessed to have spent that time together. And thanks for the tip of the college too on picmonkey, I took a few minutes to work it out but I think it worked out good in the end. Love this photo, and love all the embellies you have placed around, you are very creative and use things I would probably look at and wonder what to do with them! Really lovely layout for that challenge. Well I better head off to a Tupperware party in a few minutes, so I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! I hope you get some scrap time in! Xx
