BITW & a shabby chic sketch

Hi There!

Last week I showed you a sneaky peak of a challenge that I had done for Scrapz.Biz . I want to share the LO in full & also the very first sketch that I have designed myself which this LO is based on!
I have  used a gorgeous Basic Grey Doily paper as a background with some more Melissa Frances 5th Avenue.
I painted this gorgeous chipboard bird & used a fine glitter on top with some pink petal liquid pearls to finish it off
I LUV this Prima flower. The extra beading just gives it that WOW factor!
You can find all products used on this LO at the Scrapz.Biz online store . Don't forget it is only $5.95 flat rate postage!

Here is the very first sketch I have designed myself! I can't get enough of sketches! I would love to see your work if this sketch inspires you!

On to my latest entry for Bird is the word. The new word is wish

I adore this photo of my 2 gorgeous girls. I am sure you will all agree how difficult it is to get good shots of more than 1 child at a time! I have used some Creative Imaginations paper & die cuts, Petaloo flowers, Prima vine & some vintage paper I scored at the Op Shop!

I have journalled on 2 tags that I inked & roughly stamped. " I wish you both a long happy,healthy life. I wish you both the strength& confidence to go out & achieve what you want in life. I love you both so much & I hope ou both keep the strong bond you already have."
I found the orange polka dot vintage paper at my local Op Shop. It is on a big roll & has such a gorgeous weathered look to it. I was so excited when I found it!

Getting excited! Ingvild Bolme Prima class is only 5 more sleeps!

Thanks for looking!
