For a sketch and a rub on challenge…………..

This is the Jan 09 sketch from roadmaps.
I have made a layout using this sketch but doubled it for a rub on challenge at SB dot com

Rub on challenge at SB dot com — some or as many rub ons as you like in the layout.

So here is my take on both the challenges:

The base paper is Crate Paper. Love the notebook type paper.
The three layered papers are from Carolee’s creations Family treasure collection,
Treasured doodles, Coming up daisies and Families are forever.
They are so adorable papers. I love the daisies and wanted it seen as a highlight in the layout.
So I have used red glitter pen and Kaiser craft red rhinestones to highlight it.
Flowers are from Bella, scrapbook blossoms, Prima bling centre piece and leaves.
Rub ons are fro Scrapbooking King. I used it on white card stock and cut it out
and distressed using Versa color camelia and gold ink.
Laces are from my stash.
Brown alphas is from Heidi Swap and red alphas from Bella.

A bit of rambling……….

My SIL sent some toe rings. Very cute ones. But I do not get to wear them. Aditi also like them and has taken them. The joy of having a daughter!! I guess….. She is wearing them as finger rings. They are perfect on her fingers. Aren’t they cute?

She wants to grow her nails, paint them and wear finger rings!!!

No prizes for guessing who she is copying, lol!!!!

We raided a garage sale near our house today and bought a huge number of books.

Kids just went crazy…

There are sets of Paul Jennings books, Enid Blyton books, Caption underpants, Simpson comics and other misc.. ones too!

I am so happy. They will occupied for a while reading books.

They also picked up some games and Aditi loved this cute little Panda soft toy,

which when rubbed on the tummy will make a little crying sound.

Very cute. They all look so new.

I bought a lovely wrought iron and wooden hallway furniture for 10$.

Couldn’t leave it, so beautiful and new!!

Where am I going to put it is another issue lol!!

Well, I have a few boxes to dispose and waiting for my neighbours to join for a garage sale..

I thing end of this month is when we have planned.

So one mega garage sale.

And make some room in the house…

What am I going to do today? I mean scrapbooking? I have no idea yet.

Got to go through the challenges and my stash….

Off I go..

Have a good weekend.
