Selected Scrapper @ Skissedilla~!

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday to you~! I hope the weekend has been great- it's been pretty quiet and normal here :). Finally completely wound down from the holidays- and planning to take down the tree today if all goes well. Sad to see it go- but I'll be glad to have back the room it takes up!

Today I'm here because I'm the Selected Scrapper this month @ Skissedilla~! If you love funky, fun sketches, then you definitely need to head on over there and play along. They have a totally amazing design team with tons of inspiration to get you going, AND there's always great prizes to be won- weekly RAKS and a monthly RAK too- provided by me~! :D

Here's my "cheeky" layout based on this weeks' sketch:

"No Pants, No Problem"
Ahh...to be a kid again~! Ha! Here's Wyatt and his cousin Bear (yes, his real name- not a nickname) wanted so badly to go swimming at Grandma's...but they had not brought their swim shorts. But who needs 'em anyway?!

Here's this week's sketch, #192 designed by my sweet friend Brit Sviggum:
I've stuck pretty closely to the sketch this time around :)

Here's a closer look:

 Modeling Paste & Micro Beads= Delicious~!

 Under my photo you can see some layers of tissue paper and a plastic foam material. This was from a padded envelope protecting a picture frame I received as a gift. I thought it was a nice way to add some neutral texture, and then I discovered- much to my delight- that it melts/shrinks under a heat gun!
My new La Blanche stamp...I foresee many future uses out of this one!

Blue Fern Studios Products Used:

Brigitte Butterfly Set
I've combined gesso, glossy accents, micro beads, & seed beads to decorate this little beauty. I am just in love with the delicate design of this butterfly- I'm sure you will agree~!

Ornate Medallions Set
This medallion piece was tucked in to the left of my flower cluster and treated the same as the butterfly. The mini rose got in on the action too~ micro beads galore~!

So now that you've seen the sketch, how about you have a play? Here's the RAK I'm offering this month for playing along...
...at the end of the month I will go through all of the entries (for the entire month!) and choose a winner to receive my RAK :)

So go get started! You have one week to fuss with this sketch and link up your entry. Can't wait to check in and see what you've all created~!

Take care :),
