and here is my take on the challenge

It just so happens that it was also my daughter’s 3rd birthday a week or so ago so I had the perfect photos to use. Can I just say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my2angels and congratulations Tracy for such a fantastic store!

OK now for the fun part..... Wendy’s sketch was really easy to use and allowed for heaps of personal creativity and flair. For the patterned paper blocks I used Fancy Pants Simplicity and Making Memories Cheeky range – Abby words.

If you look also underneath the photo there is a strip of the Making Memories Cheeky range – Abby Numbers. These are all on super special at the moment in store, so get there now before they go! For the number strip I cut about a 1.5cm strip but as my daughter turned 3, I actually manually cut around these and glazed them with dimensional magic to make them pop out. The edges of the Abby words paper were distressed with the ink blending tool and black soot ink.
There is also a tutorial on this technique if you haven’t used one before....they are fantastic by the way!

For the title I have used chipboard letters embossed with Black Glitter Zing. Other embellishments used for this sketch were the absolutely gorgeous Black flower ribbon slide.....OMG how stunning are these, heaps of sparkle power!! I simply slid this onto the hot pink corrugated satin ribbon, placed one long strip of double sided tape on the back and adhered the whole thing onto the LO.  
This is the same ribbon I have used for the bow in the top right hand corner which was embellished also with a silver present charm.
Finally for the semi circle element on the bottom left hand corner of the sketch I gathered a small piece of the lime corrugated satin ribbon and stitched it with black embroidery thread.

Because I couldn’t help myself I also added to this little embellishment cluster a silver double star charm.

Have fun!
