Sketchabilities #142 & Creative Embellishments Challenge:

Two for one! That doesn't happen very often, but I was fortunate enough
to win some goodies from Creative Embellishments & since they are also
sponsoring Sketchabilities this time around, you can enter into BOTH
challenges. For CE you do need to use their goodies and use wood on 
your page. 
Which I've done! Here's the Sketchabilities sketch:
 
I felt like following it to the letter when I started, but of course, some slight bits
got altered a little!!
 Loved doing this one. Got back to distressing & inking up the edges.
A fair bit of background stamping, using my Creative Embellishments crack stamp:
And no, crack stamp is NOT the official title, LOL....& a Stampin' Up sentiment stamped
over the top.
I also used a 'splot' stamp [thanks Lizzy C!!]
The wooden hearts are CE, too....the blue one from Mitra. Added
some Staz On ink around the edge:
The hashtag is Creative Embellies, too. I may have added in a few extras *winks*!!
 Another flair [A Flair for buttons - thanks Monique L!!!]...a little rusty,
but as I keep saying - choose your LO & it can look perfectly at home:)
 I spent a LOT of time with this top cluster. That's a Dusty Attic film reel, then
I've layered up a CE heart, then stamped & added the 'family sentiment'.
Thanks for the tag, Sanna....altered a LOT....but that's the FUN of scrapping!
And a final closie. This page took quite a bit of time, but so worth the effort as
these two don't get scrapped that often. And are together even less!
Thanks for looking ~ Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
