My Blessings Happy Faces

Hi everyone! Today's make is a layout based on a sketch from Let's Get Shabby for its Challenge #42 and Design Team Call that attempted me to give it a go. I have been meaning to scrap my four blessings for ages but all I did with their photo so far was down size the picture to smaller pixel so it fits into the photo cube generator as seen on the right side bar...my children love to see themselves rolling 360 degrees. lol.  
Eventually here's my take: 

Materials used: Bo Bunny patterned paper, Tim Holtz distress ink, Martha Stewart punch/acrylic craft paint, Smooch, Kaisercraft stamp/wooden flourishes/ink pad/rub on, Prima flowers/bling, crochet flowers by Lili Sulastri and others from my stash

The sketch:
Isn't that a pretty shabby sketch!
...and here's some close-ups...
I used acrylic paint for the alpha first layer and touch up with water color, a bit of smooch and sponge up the egde.
My credit and sincere thank you to my sister Lili Sulastri for the crochet flowers. She's so good at it.
Eyelets and lacing are some of my favorite things.
I did the rub on at nearly mid-night and it's either the lighting was to dim or my eyes were sleepy thus the slip off of some letters...duh...but hey, that's art...hihi.
Can't do without personal note for my children. They are the reason I breath and scrap =D

Until the morning after. I always appreciate your visit and I will do my best to leave you some love whenever I get the chance to visit you. Keep smiling and may happiness be yours all the time.
Hugs and smiles,
