Anything Goes!

Happy Wednesday!  I hope things are not too hectic for everyone.  This week at the Papercraft Star, our challenge is "Anything Goes"!  That's right, create anything your heart desires and link it up by Monday 6:00 a.m. EST. for your chance to win some digital images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  For my project I altered a photo tray from 7 Gypsies.  I used various patterned papers from Webster's Pages, The Girl's Paperie, and some beautiful images from The House Across The Bay.

In this section I stamped a silhouette from Clear Art Stamps, and a sentiment from Webster's Pages.  The butterfly is adhered to the frame itself.  I then added a rosette which I tucked a sequin heart and tag behind, along with a hat pin.  The next spot I used the "Romantic Lace 098" paired with Vintage Children's Book Illustrations 198, from The House Across The Bay.  These little images are so adorable.  For the last couple of spots I adhered one of my favorite pics of my little girl, and along side is another image from the Romantic Lace digi sheet.  The crown is from Tim Holtz which I colored white using some Whisper White craft ink from Stampin Up.  

My favorite element from this side of the tray is definitely the little banner I made using some Wrights rose garland and the Fabric inchies cut into triangles.  The "A" is a chipboard letter from Making Memories, and a frame from Tattered Angles which I added silver stickles to.  The flowers are from Prima and leaves were made from Martha Stewart leaf punches.  The next section is a pic of my daughter with a little sentiment from Webster's Pages adhered to the frame.  In the next spot is a piece of cardstock that I embossed and added a flourish and flower to.  The last section I created a small mini album that can be removed and pictures added.  In the last spot is another image from "Romantic Lace", and a bow made from seam binding and small flower.  This project was loads of fun to create, and it reminded me of how quickly time flies by.  During all the chaos that sometimes comes with the holidays I hope you are able to take some time for yourself.  I hope you will join us this week over at the Papercraft Star!  Thank you for stopping by!
