Good Luck Roof Bulls: Miracles Momma Designs Sketch

What a fun little sketch! I rotated it to make the most of my photos.

Heather at Miracles Momma Designs always manages to come up with these cool ideas like banners behind the photos. I love show casing a nice series of paper that works well together.

My favorite part of this page is the little house sticker with the red microbeads. and the heart pin.

Here is a close-up of my paint splatters. My latest Scraptastic Farmer's Market Kit  came with a nice brown paint dauber so I enjoyed smearing on some paint. It also came with these delicious papers from Lily Bee!

Also included was this pretty brown thankful banner and glittery leaves.

I thought it went well with the colors of these itty bitty little bulls I bought come from Peru. Two grubby boys asked me to purchase them and since it was early on in my trip, my resistance to cute little faces was lacking so I handed them $5 American and they ran for the hills. Turns out I overpaid by quite a bit as my father pointed out later!

Here is a photo of a bigger set. I think the colors are so pretty and soft on these.

Bulls in Peru are EVERYWHERE! They love to put them on their rooftops along with other items, usually a cross. There is a really nice little write up of that on this blog if you are interested. I think it's cool they believe bulls bring good luck.

Personally I always avoid them...having gotten stuck with one licking the tires of my truck one sunny afternoon while out doing field work!

Happy Monday!


  1. You are sooo right - these papers look perfect that 'thankful' banner - I was wondering how you'd done it at first!!!! And afraid I gotta pinch the home/heart idea....have to make a housewarming card today & this is GREAT....perfect timing, my friend:):) Bulls...good luck....I'm with you - I'll have the luck, but avoid the bulls, thank you very much...& it was still a bargain for you - they just got lucky selling them to the right American lady:)):):):) See....bulls do bring luck!!!!!!!!

  2. Wow I really love this layout. The colours and design are fabulous :)

  3. I agree with Lizzy. Selling the bulls did bring THEM luck. They are super cute and I say they're totally worth the $ you paid for them. Nice to know the story behind your fabulous page!

  4. Love reading your stories about your trip, and you probably helped these boys so much by over paying them, I just hope they used the money for something they needed... fabulous layout, love the colors... great take on the sketch too..

  5. Love the colours and your take on the sketch!!
