Amber Ink Project #2

Ahem...drum roll please....doot do do doot! Here is my 2nd Amber Ink project. I was really trying to get this out earlier this week but you see I got a wild hair this weekend and thought, hummm, I have a 3 day weekend, why don't I just tear all the wallpaper off the entryway and hallway. Sounds harmless and possibly a little fun right...yeah I know...sick. Well once we got into the thick of things we found out there wasn't just one layer of wallpaper, there were 3 and when we began tearing it off the sheetrock paper came with it. Nice right. It was about then that I became a little cranky because I knew that I wasn't going to finish this task before work on Tuesday. Needless to say I am almost finished. However this little love bug has been running around in my head for a few days now just waiting for the page to put it on. This is our Granddaughter Angelina and man is she Grandpa's Little Love Bug. She comes to visit with her mommy every few months and if she will let us we get as many hugs and kisses as we can!

Here are the deets of this little project. The green patterned paper is from Making Memories. The little daisy flower around the border had a blue center which really didn't go with my project at all so I just hole punched the center out of each one...as my grandma would say "there's more than one way to skin a cat ladies!" I loved the green color and I certainly wasn't going to let a little blue stand in my way of using it! The thing I love about the Love Bug digi is that when you purchase this little fella you get one with hearts and one with out and the bestest part is that the price of this little digi is only $2!! I know right??? Anyway, the yellow and pink patterned papers are
from K and Company.  Just incase you didn't hear me that digi was only $2!!

Here is a close up of the larger love bug. I wanted to make one a little bigger and use it as an embelly for the page. I colored the little buggy with Copic markers and then cut the image out. After using the Spellbinders circles I used a little popup tape to make her stand out off the page a little bit and then decked her out with a little bit of Frosted Lace Stickles. Every love bug has to have her bling right?



I typed the title up in a font I had on the computer and added the little love bug to the corner.



Looking at these pictures makes us miss our little bug so much! Sniff...

Well thanks for peekin' in friend, hope you have a fabulous Friday tomorrow!  And if you haven't gone over to Amber Ink yet do it...you know you want to..
