Smile

It's sketch time again. The Cornish Heritage Farms girls are keeping me scrapbooking I tells ya.

First of all I have just boys. And there was all this WONDERFUL K and Company stuff. Girly to the max. I mean there are unicorns on some of this stuff. I almost didn't get it. But it was sooooo cute.

So I hereby propose that you CAN use glitter and girly stuff on a boy's page. If the page is about FUN, use FUN stuff. I refuse to believe it's not ok.

I felt it needed some glittery turtles. Glittery to go with the "thermal sealed glitter" that the papers feature. So I colored them with copics, cut them out, inked the whole thing with versamark ink pad and embossed with Stampin Up iridescent ice powder (glittery powder) Then I covered the whole piece with glossy accents and let it dry.

Here are the glittery turtles. Also please note the stitched hill I have for my turtles to stand on. They can't just stand around on a pink border piece ya know.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I wish I had known I was going to put ribbon across the bottom before I stitched all the way around. I would have liked to include the ribbon under the stitching. These are the type of details that I notice on other peoples cards and amaze me. I think that doesn't happen for me because I don't plan ahead.
