I’m am getting caught up and my creativity is starting to flow again. This layout is for Creative Embellishments this month. They teamed up with Sketchabilities and had this fantastic sketch #142.

This picture is from the pond. Frogs have been in abundance over the years and with the landscaping, they don’t mind taking really good pictures.

I have been adventuring into the crackle paste recently and tried the effect on the center of the flower. It’s very fine, but I like the effect next to the liquid pearls.

I have been waiting to use Bo Bunny’s Little Miss Collection and this worked out with this challenge. The colors of this collection worked well with the inspiration picture and the dare was to use wood. I added some Prima Wooden ATC card in with the layering.

I hope everyone is enjoy the beautiful summer we are having. Thank you for stopping by.
