Spotted this sketch about eighteen different times on various blogs and wanted to have a try at it myself. Check it out on Sketchy Thursday's Blog here! I found this photo from my first party here at the house with a bunch of girls from my exercise class and others...and wanted to use it. Believe me, making those desserts pretty on the plate stand was A LOT of fun! Of course, I also got my package of Purple Pumpkin goodies in the mail as well and had to add some of their cool spotted buttons (sprayed with a 'lil glimmermist) a doily, and also a cool flower of theirs I got for playing along with their Design Team call. If you want to check out their blog, click here. There is also another challenge out there about using various kinds of fonts on your page...using news print might have been cheating a bit, but I added quite a few Webster's Pages letters...That challenge is at The Paper Variety.
My handmade flowers are made from some mulberry paper and cut out using the Tim Holtz Tattered flower die cut. I spritzed them with glimmermist and then scrunched them up to give them dimension. The paper was some I have had FOREVER and was originally white with pretty embossed texture. More glimmermist and black ink fixed that! Just a fun page in all.
