LSHD sketch challenge....

Friday the 13th!!

I have considered Friday the 13th to be one of my lucky days ever since my oldest was born on the 13th and his first birthday was on a Friday :-) So Happy Day to you all!!

I have been busy working on scrapbook borders that I exchange with my 'sb buddies' every month. I owe for January - April and I have only made 4 :-( I have a problem with getting too fancy and complicated and it takes me too long on each one. I also have my hands full with the two kittens. They will be 4 weeks old tomorrow and they are healthy little boogers. They love my attention :-) Momma Spooky is bored and she keeps me up a lot at night.... then I am tired all day!

Oh well, on with the challenge I decided to do! Little Scraps of Heaven Designs has a sketch challenge this week and I decided to enter. It is a layout following this sketch:

I decided to use their "Over the Hill" file to make a 2 page layout for my DIL's upcoming 40th birthday. I certainly do not consider 40 to be even close the the "hill", but it was the only b-day coming up :-)

I went with all the shades of black and grey, then the pop of color with the green vining leaves. The background papers that I used are very sparkly and I so do not remember the brand, but great papers!

Here is a close-up of the flowers. I used the LSHD file called "My Paper Garden Vol. 2" to make the flowers and added rhinestone bling to the centers. A bit of curl of the petals for dimension. Great flower and leaf patterns in this set :-)

So this morning, surprise! One of the older cats, probably KoKo, discovered the layout where I sat it and decided to "deflower" it :-0 I found the parts to one flower and one is MIA. Little Brat!!

Tomorrow I hope to post a card I made for another challenge. Have a wonderful day!!!

Kitty Hugs, Judy
