Live and Love Crafts Monthly Challenge

WARNING:  This post is SUPER picture heavy.  :)

This month at Live and Love Crafts our new challenge is this photo inspiration.  Isn't it pretty?  In this picture I found the clock, hearts (even on the mugs), flowers and winter and there's a lot more too. 

Here is my sticky note easel card that I put a WHOLE lotta love into because it's

  I used the new Maja Design's "Vintage Autumn Basics" and the image is "Nikki" from Saturated Canary.

Don't you just love these new skates in at LLC?!!  ADORABLE!!  I distressed the edges of them at the back and then I added some shabby white Frantage.  The Tim Holtz weathered clock die is painted with TH distress stain and then covered with TH clear rock candy.  Oh and I also added some Gesso...over EVERYTHING!

I cut a small piece of Maja dp and adhered it on to the back of the frame and then added the distressed "hb" for my sentiment cuz
 Isn't this white apple just the sweetest?!!  I love it!!  I've tied a shabby seam binding ribbon onto my Magnolia heart tag, added a nice Prima paper clip clock with some gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  I've also added two clay hearts with some shabby blue Frantage embossed onto them.  Sooooooo pretty!!

A close up of my image and it's a better picture of these super cute wooden hearts new to the LLC store as well.  I HAD to add some glitter to this somewhere since that's one of my sister's favorite things.  Besides,

This is the base piece of my creation.  Isn't that lace just gorgeous peeking out both sides of the sticky note holder?  Also, I just love these new Prima resin corner pieces.  I love Simone too.

Here is a picture of what it looks like when it's closed.  I wrapped it in tissue and then in bubble wrap and sent it off to Simone.

LMBO!!  So I'd like to dedicate this post and card to my bestie buddie EVAH!  Her birthday is actually tomorrow so I'm a day early but wasn't it fun?!! 

Buddie!!  I hope you have a great day tomorrow and I wish I could be there to hang with you but I'm sure we'll be texting each other allllllll day!  ha ha! Love you!

You really went all out on this one. It's totally gorgeous and Simone is drooling and crying at the same because you put so much love and devotion into this. I love the tutorial for the Post-It Note card and in the process for making several as little Christmas mementos for those special someones. You always amaze me at how intricate and precise your embellishments are placed. I love it!!!! "Hugs"

OMG what an amazing creation! No wonder Simone loved it to the moon and back. Fab colouring and all those details!!! Don't even know where to start...there's sooooo much to look at and one could say something about, but my favourite detail has to be the wood ice skates with the frantage! Thanks n' Hugz, Sandy
