Mix It Up blog - Mixer #16

This was a design challenge - use rubons in a
original fashion on your layout.
Everything on my layout is rubons. :)

For my Mom

My Mom requested a birthday card with a black flower
and a owl. LOL She was looking at one of my layouts and
saw the flower and owl and loved it. She said the she
really wanted a b'day card with them on it.
So this is what I made her. :)

This altered circle frame was done for a challenge at
LIITD and also for my Mom for her b'day.
It's hard to see but there are 2 beads at the end of
the antenna on the big butterfly which I attached to wire.
There are stickles on the big butterfly too and the
fairy. The two smaller butterflies are covered
with dazzling diamonds.

Lori's weekly challenge #13

For this weeks challenge you had to use multiple pictures
and a variety of colors.

Grid Locked Challenge
I had a really hard time trying to get a good
picture of this layout ... not sure why but it still looks dark even though I took
the picture this morning .... lets say about 20 pictures and still
couldn't get a good one. grrrrr.
For this challenge you had to use a "grid" technique
to create a layout. This was a great way for me
to use up rub ons and little embellies.
