New Release at Bugaboo and a Recipe for Sketches

Good Tuesday Morning to you all. It is New Release day over at Bugaboo and I hope you run on over and check out all the new Images Jodie has in the store for you. And don't forget to stop by the Blog to see what all the Design Team members have to share with you. Wait till you see all the flowers. Woo Hoo I'm going shopping as soon as I finish this post.
This first card uses one of the new Flower Bears and I used Basic Grey papers and Flower Soft on the bears hat. Too cute Hu? And this lovely Margaret has some great new sentiments to share with you. I love these. Check them out Here.

This week at Sketches By Tamara the challenge is a Recipe Challenge. You are to use Brads, Buttons and the Color Blue. I found this paper last fall and I'm just now finding the perfect place for it. This is a fancy Pants Design paper by Jackie Eckles. I love her stuff. I just added a button to the center of this flower to give it a finished look. I made these buttons using Alcohol Inks to color white buttons. Okay I've done it again. I had bought these adorable images and now I can't find the link anywhere for them. I have the name Hope Jacara written but I still can't find her images. I will keep looking and let you know.

I used a Martha Stewart Punch to do the edges of the background paper and the Believe lettering is from Michaels dollar section.

Brads......both rhinestone (from SU) and some from an embellies pack from dollar bin at Target. It is amazing what you can find out there.

I played around with an overlay in photoshop for the picture of my granddaughter. I learn new stuff everyday and I'm always so proud of myself. I don't always remember how I did something so it just opens up a whole new learning experience the next time I try it. LOL

Have a great day.

Hi Melissa! I've been seeing your stuff via the Catch the Bug Challenge blog and I have to tell you how impressed I am. The way you combine elements (and images) to create scenes is stunning! Your projects just leap off the screen. Keep up the great work!
