Practical Scrappers May Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to this months Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop hosted by Practical Scrappers!  You should have arrived here from the fabulous Melissa's blog, if not check it out here.  It's that time of the month where you dig into your stash, you know that older stack of scrapbook paper that just keeps multiplying because you have found new paper that you just can't live without!  What, what is that you say..." Why Bobbi that looks like more Crate Paper".  Yes...yes it is, I just can't help myself (one of my favorite scrapbook companies) I'm obsessed.  For this layout I'm using Crate Papers - On Trend collection.
I layered several patterned papers from the collection.  I shaded my paper pieces with walnut stain Distress Ink and a blending tool and then distressed the edges with a bone folder.
I did a little splattering with some Heidi Swap Gold Color Shine and Mister Huey's Opaque White sprays.  I am in love with that gold!!!
All of the wood veneers are Studio Calico and the buttons are from the On Trend collection as part of an embellishment pack.
 GIVEAWAY!!!  Up for grabs is a selection of 6 x 6 scrapbook papers with coordinating bakers twine and washi tape.  To enter, just become a follower on my blog through Google, Google plus, or the email option.  Leave me a comment letting me know you are a new follower! I will leave this giveaway open until 11:59 CST on June 6th.
I hope you enjoyed my layout, let me know what you think, I love your comments!  Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you next time!  Next on the blog hop list is the very talented Majken, happy hopping!!!

CC3C Challenge Number One

Now when I heard that Linda Ledbetter was hosting the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Three, I just had to get in on it!  You all know what a big Tim Holtz fan I am :)  Now for those of you that don't know about it, it's a challenge based off of Tim Holtz new book "A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3" like all of his other books it's packed full and techniques!  Here is my take on the first challenge which was paint marbling (page 43 in Tim's Book)
The image of the three boys are one of the cards from Tim's Found Relatives Card Pack, I just fussy cut them out.  I also used Tim Holtz's Layering Stencil, Remnant Rubs, Wire Pins, Mini Film Strip Ribbon and Type Charm.  Here's what it looked like before I put all the goodies on there :)
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my tag and don't forget to hop over to Studio L3 to check out challenge number one.  Thanks so much for the visit.  I really appreciate it, have a wonderful day!  xx
