Zach ~ One Cool Dude


Hi everyone!!  I hope you're staying cool this summer.  Here in Texas we had 109 degrees yesterday and 106 degrees today!!!!  Way too hot to do anything outdoors.. But I still have to check on the cows to make sure the floats in their water tanks are working.  By the time I walk around over there and head back home I'm soaking wet and you can wring my hair out!!  I hate that!!!

Anyway, I've been checking out the Flying Unicorn site out and they have Mojo Monday every week and you use their sketch..  Well, they have some beautiful ones, and I just decided to play this week...

Here's their sketch, and this one was created by Alda Stevens..


Lots of layers here...  I really wanted to make a girly layout using this sketch, but with 2 little grandsons I decided I needed to try and create a "boy" layout.. As you can see, I layered my layers a little different than the sketch...    But that's okay!

Here are a few close ups.....


Top Right...  Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Border/Corner Punches, Distressing, Gems, K&Company Butterfly, and Computer Journaling.




Bottom Right...  Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Border/Corner Punches, Gems, and Distressing, Thickers Vinyl Alphabet Stickers..



Bottom Left...  Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Border/Corner Punches, Gems, Distressing, Misc Sticker Letters/Numbers, Recollections - Flowers, and Sizzix Vine Die..


This layout qualifies for a few challenges...

Flying Unicorn ~ Sketch
Crafty Creations ~ Embellish It  (Using a least 3 different embellishments -- I used Flowers, Gems, and Glitter Butterflies)
Creative Inspirations ~ Anything Goes
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge ~ Summer Holiday (And use something at least 6 months old --  My SU Patterned Papers are a couple of years old)
CropStop ~ Feeling Blue




Here is the list of scrappy things I used...
Stampin' Up Cardstock
Stampin' Up Patterned Paper
Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Punches
Recollections ~ Flowers
Gems
Sizzix Vine Die
K&Company Butterflies
Thickers Vinyl Alphabet Stickers
Misc Alphabet and Number Stickers

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a wonderful day!!
Hugs!!
Pin It!
