My Favorite Outfit {CCG 204}

Hi Everyone!! If you didn't see my exciting news, check it out here!!

Okay, on to my layout!! I just absolutely loved the color challenge this week at CCG!! I had a lot of fun putting this layout together!!

Here is this weeks challenge:

I used the current sketch at Sketches In Thyme(sketch #53):

And here are some detailed shots:
I hand stitched the ribbon onto the layout, folding it in every inch or so to give it a layered-type look. I used my Cticut and cut out the title word FAVORITE, and used a white gel pen to outline the letters.

Found this cute as a button sticker in my stash and it was just perfect! I adhered it to the creamy yellow pp to give it a nice border/background. I wrapped the photo in ribbon twice, and then wrapped the sticker once, tied it off, and added the flower and button.

Its hard to tell from the photo, but the layout does have quite a bit of dimension. I used a bunch of my pop up adhesives throughout the layout. Some of the squares from the grid strip are popped up, the title words FAVORITE and OUTFIT are popped up, and the cute as a button sticker is popped up.

Here is a close up of the ribbon and stitching. I wanted you to see the blue ribbon I used. I just love the look of it against the brown ribbon.

I am also entering this into ScrapFIT's current Weekend Warmup (#11): Flowers. I am also adding it to Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge: Animals.

  • Cardstock from HobbyLobby
  • ColorBok patterned paper
  • MME pp
