We had a great week. Shannon is settling in well with the new Semester courses and Emily got her Honour Roll certificate for first Semester.
Something I forgot to share last week! I went along to the School Spelling Bee as it is Emily's last year in elementary school. She has been in the finals the past few years, but always was eliminated in the last couple of rounds.
Well, this year after 8 rounds and 5 final rounds - she WON!!! My heart was beating so fast after each final round and when she finally won - I was so pleased for her and she was of course over the moon excited and was crying LOL! I have a couple of photos. One with the school trophy which will have her name on for the 2015 Champion and one with her medal. (Sorry for the photo quality there were taken on my phone :-))
Anyways, on to today's creation. I am playing along with the Viva la Verve Sketches for February, and this is week 3.
And my interpretation using the DCWV The Rustic Stack.
I love these papers, they have and embossed glossy or glitter finish to them. I have used the Spellbinders Large Scalloped Rectangle for my sentiment panel.
I added the same papers on the inside, with the message panel in the pale colour.
For finishing the outside, I added some Flourish with a Bling adhesive backed Pearl Dots in chocolate and a little flower assembled with Recollections flower petals. And of course the ribbon.
Hmmmm - not sure about this one. Ah well, we take the good with the bad LOL!
Hope you have a fabulous rest of the weekend.
In addition to the Viva la Verve sketch challenge I am entering the following challenges.
