Imaginisce Monthly Challenge

I was flipping thru some blogs and stopped by the Imaginisce Blog. Little did I know they had just posted the Monthly Challenge and this month it was a sketch. Instant need to scrap. I ran to the scraproom and within about 25 minutes.....I made another page for the babies book. It felt good to scrap a little. And for it to come so freely. Here is the sketch that is to be used for this Challenge.....

And here is what I came up with. I used all Imaginisce products except for the American Craft Thickers and some pink and white cardstock. I think the favorite thing is the flower. It is a flower diecut by Imaginisce that you can roll into a Posie. I decided to take all three sizes, white wash them with paint and then layer them for dimension. I love how it turned out. And of course I had to add some bling here and there.


We had a great weekend trip meeting some of Billy's family from his mom's side. One person he had never met before which I think is always cool. It makes me happy that I tried to work on his family tree when I get to see him meeting new people. We did some antique store hopping and lots of riding around. Just spend some good quality time together. It was much needed. I think we should do that once a month! Before we left on Friday I chopped my hair off. Here is a before. I am still working on getting a good shot of the after but I can say in some places she cut 7 inches off! It is so much lighter now. I love long hair but boy was it a hassle.


And of course I will leave you today with the funny picture of the month. Little Danie and her planks! She is so cute and will be crawling in a few weeks I am sure.
