The challenge this week at Lasting Memories is to create a layout that incorporates paper piecing, here's my contribution:
A photo of my niece and puppy, Keyser Soze, napping together when they were both about the same size...isn't it the sweetest? I used a few other challenges to get me started on this one, first off was this sweet inspiration:
The challenge at Lollipop Ladies is to make this BANANA CUSTARD into something VINTAGE. I used various yellows and whites as the main colors of the layout, but also threw in a bit of brown and pink as accents for the PALE PRETTY PASTELS challenge at Papertake Weekly. I STAMPED my white CS with a fun vintage ruler stamp (for the stamping challenge at Dream Valley), added vintage tickets I had received in a swap at Speckled Egg, and included vintage pink BUTTONS I purchased at a local antique store for the button challenge at Sisterhood of Crafters.
My title is an Alan Jackson lyric, "It's alright to be a LITTLE BITTY", for the latest challenge at Scrap it With a Song. I'm not a country girl and so I'm not familiar with this song at all, but the lyrics are very sweet and seemed to fit well with this photo.
For my PAPER PIECING at Lasting Memories, I created a layered flower. I started with 4 circles: 2", 1 1/2", 1" and 3/4". I stamped each circle with a few different vintage stamps in various shades of brown ink, snipped little V's from each to create petals, layered them and attached with a lovely jumbo jeweled brad.
