Bubbles - Shabby Chic at Stuck on U Sketches

 Happy reveal Friday!  I am happy to report to you that the Wedding was a success and I have been a Mother-in-law for almost 2 weeks! We saw the kids this past Sunday after they got home from their Honeymoon and they looked very happy and relaxed.

On with the layout!  Our sketch was provided our very own Leah, and this one really got me thinking. Its totally not my style, and once I got past what her theme was, it was really fun for me!

I snagged this photo off of my sil's camera.  Here is Nila again, [love her] and I knew this would be a fun one to scrap.  I wanted to keep it in the same color family with the different shades of pink, with pops of green in the foliage and Prima flowers.  This photo was screaming SHABBY!  I had to oblige! 

                                                        Here is the sketch by Leah

                                                                              This is an interesting can see the different layers of Dusty Attic Chippies I've used. The little pink flowers I had made for a sharing tree for Jerica's wedding, and once it was over I carefully picked the flowers off the tree and now will use them in my layouts!  I made 300 of them following this tutorial by Grace and Grace's Scrap Attic.

                                                                                I had been saving these Prima flowers for quite some time, and knew this was the time to break them out.  I also used the Prima vine with the acrylic flowers and leaves.  I took my Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint and touch areas of the vine with it, giving it a really cute look.

                                                                                  I love Dusty Attic Chippies so much! I used the gate on my layout and I painted it with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint by Ranger. I lightly rubbed some Vintage Photo distress ink over it, wipe most of it away, and added a few touches of pink. Beautiful!
                                                                                  I recently purchased this  Dusty Attic Vine.  I inked it with Distress stain, and then embossed it with Distress Powder, and then added some Distress Crackle paint on the edges.  The paint was white, but since the distress inks are reactivated by water, the paint took on a green shade.  I love how this turned out!


                                                                                      Here you can see the title I made using Thickers. Again, Prima flower with DA vine.  I used crinkled ribbon that was hand dyed by my good friend Lori Patterson who is the owner of Love is in the Details,  my main 'hangout' that I found when I first started scrapping.

                                                                    Close up of Nila and the other goodies!
