You Are My Sweetheart

Hello there! I feel so happy with my end result of today's layout after spending about six hours in the making process at probably three sittings; first stop to make breakfast for my two girls and continue and second stop to take my sweet Anis the girl pictured in this layout to afternoon school and bought blue ribbon and blue thread along the way as this mind kept changing while making this layout. I finished it off at third sitting after I sew the border and quickly make the blue roses; hence why I bought ribbon and thread! 

This layout is designed for the Colorful Creations Press Your Luck Game Board. 

How it works-
Around the game board there are several different challenges, behind each number is a challenge. You will pick a number between 1-20 and whatever challenge that number is behind will be your challenge.

Because I was born on September 9 and often consider 9 as my lucky number {chuckle} so I have chosen number 9 and the challenge is to follow the sketch below. I twist the sketch a little by placing the photo on the right side:

Materials used: Prima Marketing (Romantique Collection "Crumpet" patterned paper/Say It In Crystals bling/blooms), Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers, Kaisercraft (ink pad/wooden flourishes/clear stamp "English Rose"), Staz-On ink pad, Martha Stewart acrylic paint, others from my stash
...some close-up pictures...
I love working on the title...
...and stamping on these acid free drawing papers. I painted the butterfly and randomly stamp it up with brown ink pad. I especially adore the handmade blue roses...did them during phone conversation with my sister :)

It's raining (again...guess the rainy season has set in; fortunately we had enough sunshine this morning to dry my mountain high laundry, phew). Time to say bye for now so I can clean the mess on my dining table and set the table for dinner in a short while; meaning to say before my hubby gets home from work, hihi.
Thank you for visiting me today. I feel so happy and always in cloud nine every time I get visitors. I'll be back soon. 
Hugs and smiles,
