Thank you for the Dear Diary mini Michelle! I was able to use some of the items for this challenge. Here is my 2nd layout.
Grid = grid paper
Something black = decorative black fabric button and journaling
Clip = clip on tags
Decorative button = fabric black button and striped square button
Rose = fabric rose
Something lacy = border lace
Something green = string, ivy leaves, and tags
Circle = circle frame
Something knotted = sting and bow
Something striped = paper shape and striped square button
Okay here is another. Ironically the only thing I had to get somewhere else was the roses. Those are from the original I love you kit - aside from that absolutely everything is from Deanne Gow Smith's Black leather kit.
Grid is background, black is everywhere, clip holding the clusterwith roses, decorative buttons everywhere, lacey is on the end of the leather tag, green is the clip and the writing, circles everywhere, knotted in the tie of the tag, stripped is the frame. All there :)
Finished this one using Michelle's All About Chocolate kit.
1) Arrow from kit.
2) Titling made with AshcanBB font and outlined with green.
3) Striped hinge from kit.
4) Button holding down tied string from kit.
5) Rose made with kit paper and mask from The Ephemeral Victorian.
6) Lacy ribbon recolored from kit.
7) Alphas from kit recolored and also titling outlined.
8) Opening in frame and brad from kit.
9) Knotted string from kit.
10) Paper and hinge from kit.
Hardest part was adding a rose to the layout.
Great layouts everyone! Have a fun and safe Memorial weekend! Here is my 3rd and final layout, I think! Thanks again for the challenge Michelle. This was a lot of fun!!
Grid = background paper
Something black = girl silhouette
Clip = gold paperclip
Decorative button = pearl button
Rose = pink rose
Something lacy = border lace
Something green = leaves
Circle - frame
Something knotted = ribbon bow
Something striped = veins on butterfly
First, everyone's looks amazing so far!
Here is my attempt at this, was definitely 'out of the box' thinking for me :).
Something with a grid (papers in background as well as bow at top)
Something black (the paper shapes behind flowers)
A clip (two on each side of paper behind photo)
A decorative button (the reddish ones going down sides of paper shape)
A rose (those are obvious :) also from the country rose kit)
Something lacey (Under flower clusters)
Something green (papers and leaves)
A Circle (the lettering and shapes behind papers)
Something knotted (under photo and at top)
Something striped (papers)
awesome job ladies....the layouts just get better and better as the challenge goes on!
Michelle!! You are getting soft in your old age!! LMBO - Linda, help me out here.. how many times did she send us back to the end of the line?? huh, huh?? I see butterflies, and stars and watermelons just to name a few in some of these LO's - which 'ahem' ARE NOT ON THE LIST! ;) but I gues I really shouldn't say anything seeing as I haven't posted a LO yet!! ha ha All in fun.
K, I'll get scrappin'
B right back!
It's nice of you to finally join us this week Kelly....can't wait to see your layout....better follow the rules to the tee...who knows when someone might not consider a watermelon button a button ;)
Seriously though - good to have you back this week. Stop getting so busy :)
oh o.k... diddn't realize the watermelon was a button.. you're forgiven! I'll go have a closer look see!! tee hee
Here's mine.. followed the rules to a T! totally almost forgot the black though.. phew.. it was close!
Just for the record, I double checked and yes, there is a watermelon button, but there is also a watermelon embellishment.. sooo uhhh, just sayin'... but if Michelle won't do it - GET TO THE BACK OF THE LINE TIN TIN!!
You're just lucky you have more LO's in here workin' for ya!! ;)
Not sure if she'll let all the journaling and titles pass either... hmmmm what do you think Marion? Some weeks she's tough, others she lets slide! We'll see ;)
