Yukon Sadie

Last week was really busy as I spent much of the week preparing for a family reunion that we had on Saturday with my Dad's family.  It was a lot of fun and great to see everyone.

But I was happy to have some time to scrap yesterday!!  This is a LO for a challenge that I issued at Pages in Time to scrap something about Christmas and include journaling.  Sadie was a gift from Dick several years ago and she is very special to me.  I am so girly, I still love dolls!  Sadie has several outfits including a poodle skirt,  a jeans skirt and shirt, Valentines princess dress and a way cool pink bomber jacket and black shorts to go with.  She also has some very awesome rhinestone glasses!  Anyway this LO is about Sadie; here she is wearing her Christmas pjs and sitting under the tree.


I used My Mind's Eye Organic Glitter paper for this, I was in a sparkly mood!  The Y and S are BasicGrey Undressed Letters covered with MME paper and then stamped with flourishes.  I applied stickles to some of the flourishes, keeping with the sparkly mood!  The other letters are DCWV "Once Upon a Life" glitter letter.  They were the wrong color so I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks to change the color.  I am loving those alcohol ink!  I love it when I can change something I already own and use it.  Another thing, the N on Yukon is a Z turned on its side.  I'm glad I've found a use for all the Z's!  The flowers are Primas that I layered and sprayed with Marshmellow glimmer mist.  The center hearts are Dress it Up buttons.  My poodle baby is printed directly on the CS, it is the scriptina font.  Over that is an acetate die cute from K & Co Que Sera Sera and there's another acetate die cut  framing the right side of Sadie's picture.  Behind the S is a small acetate die cut from gcd Studios Melody Ross Artsy Urban.  The striped border strip is also gcd, from the same collection.  I made the black lace border with an EK Success border punch.   I printed my journaling on vellum b/c I didn't want a block of white paper on the LO and I was afraid to run thaat sparkly paper thru my printer.   Finally, I finished it all up with a lace/pearl strip.  I'm pretty happy with this!  I used alot of new products and did some things I hadn't done before.  Thanks for stopping by, let me know you were here!!
