CP4U Challenge #49

Challenge #49 is up on the Creative Prompts For You blog!

Supplies used:  Jenni Bowlin, SEI, Basic Grey and 7 Gypsies patterned papers; Marvy Uchida, EK Success and Martha Stewart Crafts punches; Maya Road chipboard; Tsukineko ink; Stampendous embossing powder; Basic Grey stickers; Sakura pen; McCall's pattern tissue; Glitz Designs rhinestones; miscellaneous buttons, ribbon and vintage lace.

This week, we had four elements that we had to incorporate - I struggled a little bit with this one!  The ledger paper was easy - I love this die cut paper from Jenny Bowlin!  Same goes for the pop dots - they're always on my layouts!

The ribbon is tied across the page and I used lace to create the flowers, with various centres:

They were simple to make!  I just sewed the two raw edges of a length of lace together and then ran a running stitch through the crocheted holes, drawing the thread tight to gather it.

Using my fingerprints on this layout stumped me.  Then I had an idea!  Using gold ink, I inked up my index finger, along with that of my daughter's, and pressed them into heart shapes on paper.  I then embossed them and cut them out.

You can participate in this CP4U challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to any store (Cdn or US) of your choice, donated by Nicole Nowasad.  You can also check out for their design team call here!

And don't forget about my Leave Your Legacy challenge - next week, I'll have another prompt for you!
