ScrapFIT Reveal: Workout #70!!

** If you're here for my Housewarming GIVEAWAYS, please go--->HERE!**

Good morning and happy Friday! I'm super excited because early this afternoon I get to head down to my sister Kelly's house for my niece Lilah's 2nd Birthday!! But first I need to take care of a few orders of business :). First of all, I'm writing this post Thursday night and as of right now, I'm quite close to reaching 200 followers, which means ANOTHER giveaway!! So if I happen to wake up in the morning and have reached that mark, I will be updating this post to let you all know to check out Giveaway #4 :D!! If not, I'll be keeping an eye out for that number to be reached and post as soon as I can. This has been a busy and amazing week- so positive- so fun- I'm reminded of why I so much enjoy the online scrappy world. So thank-you all for that!

Secondly, I'm here to share with you Workout #70 for ScrapFITDevelop Your Own Polaroid! Do you remember when Polaroid photos were the hot new way to take photos?  Well this workout is a tribute to the Polaroid!  We want to see a layout with a Polaroid photo. Dont have a Polaroid photo, don't worry- you can create a fake Polaroid- ScrapFIT has some fab examples for you to check out if you're wondering how! 

Here is what I came up with:

"Seize the Day"
I actually created a Polaroid photo using my photo editing software, but then I remembered that Scrap FX just came out with these really cute chipboard Polaroid frames, and decided to layer that over my photo. In between the layers on my layout I added some Manor House Creations and Prima packaging, along with some book pages (another of my obsessions!). I also used some of the same packaging behind my photo. I love re-purposing, and how could you not with such pretty packaging?

Here's a closer look at my layout...
I've used the 6x6 brick template from The Crafter's Workshop, along with some Martha Stewart Texture Effect. After drying with my heat gun, I dabbed on the sandy-colored ink.

I've used a combination of Prima flowers, leaves, doilies, and chipboard in my cluster.

 I LOVE this Prima butterfly- I really love that the wings are flexible so I was able to bend them however I wanted them :).

This fab title is from Scrap FX, simply dabbed with a bit of gesso.

Supplies Used:
~Prima Marketing "Sun Kiss" papers
~Prima Marketing flowers
~Prima Marketing Aglow "Mica" leaves
~Prima Marketing butterfly
~Prima Marketing "Nature Garden" chipboard
~Scrap FX Polaroid frame & wordlet title
~The Crafter's Workshop "Bricks" 6x6 template
~Martha Stewart Texture Effect
~Prima Chalk Fluid Edger Pad "Shabby Tote"
~Prima Marketing & Manor House Creations packaging
~doilies, book pages, ribbon, gesso

The winner of this workout will receive a $25 gift certificate from My Favorite Things:

So how about you have a go at it? Can't wait to stop by and see what you come up with!!

I hope you have a great Friday and a great weekend! I'll be back here on Sunday to share with you another DT project. But I'll still be checking in, reading your sweet comments and responding when I can.

Take care of you :)...
