Laugh Out Loud at Meljen's Designs This Week!!.

Good morning!! I am back at work today. I slept a lot yesterday. I feel better, but I feel run down. So, I'll take it easy today. It's almost the weekend! The kids have been busy with all of their stuff. Hubby has been doing some woodworking. That's about it. Stinks feeling icky!  I hope everyone has a great rest of your week!!!

Today we are starting Challenge #227 at Meljen's Designs and for this challenge we have a theme of Laugh Out Loud! (Use A Funny Sentiment). I don't know why, but I always have the hardest time with humor LOL  But here is what I came up with:









I decided to try something different for this creation and I made a File Folder Card. I think it turned out alright! The image I used is Fiesta Diva, which you can find at the Meljen's Designs shop! I cut both the outside and the inside with my Silhouette Cameo. The circle die cut on the inside is from My Favorite Things. I stitched around the file on the inside and I stitched around the two sides of the outside holder. The papers are all from a Club Scrap kit.. very old LOL I made the rosette and topped it with a button that I've had forever and a day. I added the gems around the tab of the inside file and the pearls on the outside folder. I used several different colors of Liquid Pearls to add the random dots.. I wanted it all to match the colors that I colored her. I did do a bit of decoupage on her head, arm and dress.

Copic Markers:
  • Dress: BG05, BG07, BG09, YR04, YR07, YR09, YG01, YG05, YG09, R14, R35, R46
  • Skin: E00, E11, E13, E15
  • Cheeks and Lips: R20, R22
  • Hair: C3, C5, C7, C9
