Scraplifting Game at Studio Calico...

Hey there my friends! I participated in a little scraplifting game over at Studio Calico tonight and guess who helped me with my creation???
Yes, it was JOHNNY!!! He enjoyed giving me his opinon on papers and especially RIBBON from his double-decker throne.

Anyhoo, we were to scraplift a layout by the person above us on the sign-up list. I chose to lift a beautiful layout called "Spring Tulips" by Scrapdebbie. Click here to see her layout.

and here is my interpretation...
I used a combination of Studio Calico kits for this, and the background paper is from the "On a Whimsy" line from Fancy Pants. And p.s. did you notice? I STITCHED! It's my first layout with stitching! I had so much fun and didn't even care that I made a few boo-boos. It just lends character, right?

Oh and I'm also really excited because the person that scraplifted me was the very talented Julie Fei-Fan Balzer! She chose this layout from my gallery:

and you can click here to see her interpretation of it. I just love what she did! Thanks Julie! I feel honored!

Don't forget there is still plenty of time to join in on the Fave Things "Scrap Your Favorite Store" challenge; and also the Scrapping The Music "Tiny Dancer" challenge!

I am off to work on a super-secret assignment! Shhhhhhh..... Thanks for visiting!
