NSD - layout!

hi hi hi!!

today is out favorite day of the year, right?! i hope to get some more crafting time in, but before i do, i wanted to share this layout i made for BOTH challenges going on over at the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog!

the first challenge is a mood board

YES! i should have warned you, it's incredible! i could make every layout i ever make with this mood board! i love it THAT much!

the second challenge is the sketch!!

sketches are an AWESOME way to jump start some creativity!!

and here's my layout:

i love it!!
i used LOTS of Butterfly Reflections Ink products! and even did some (lite!!) mixed media!

i used some Distress Ink watercoloring onto the patterend paper. and once that was dry, i used the adorable heart stencil and some embossing paste to add some more fun! i used the watercolor and embossing paste as 'layers' in the sketch...because i'm abstract like that! ha!)

i stitched on the AMAZING thickers and Amy Tangerine word phrases from Rise and Shine, and then splattered some black ink! fun fun fun!

the pictures are from a few (cough cough) years ago - my son and my best friend's daughter are so close to the same age, and they just LOVED each other when they met at 2! it was so adorable! lots of hugging, and lots of pictures! ha ha!

be sure to play along for your chance to win some Butterfly Reflections Ink money!! :)
