The Sugar Bowl

Fantastic sketch over at the Sugar Bowl-as always-all the 'sweeties' sketches are fab! The extra was to include pearls so I used adhesive pearls around the scalloped circle. Did you notice the fun thing I did to little Annie? I crackled her! Was sooo fun and I love the effect, think this image works really well with it too. If you can't see it well in the pic then give a little click on the pic for a close-up. I also made some ickle twigs around the prima flower which I made from a bare tree punch I had and I just trimmed it up a bit then added some ink to the edges to co-ordinate with the photo corner. Can you tell I had fun hehe? 

If anything doesn't make sense in this post it's because I'm trying to make sure Leo doesn't do himself a mischief as he has discovered climbing this week-and there I was thinking I could snatch 5 mins to write this! 

Materials: Doodlebug papers, Core'dinations cardstock, Leanne Ellis stamp Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers, Kars scallop circle stamp, Inkadinkado swirl stamps (on photo corner), Cricut Jasmine cartridge, Ranger crackle accents, prima flowers, Papermania adhesive pearls, tree punch.

Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you might leave-I really appreciate them!
