You Make Me Smile & TTCRD {Jan 20-26 Challenge}

Good day everyone! It's so hot and humid where I am. I wonder how the weather is like at your place? Hoping you are in good health and enjoying the ending of January in ten days more. Hey, where did the time go I wonder. Aaah, enough blab, {smile}

Moving on to my favorite subject is this layout I designed for Through The Craft Room Door (TTCRD)'s newest challenge. The theme is Anything Goes starting today until the 26th day this month.
Supplies: Digi image 'Whootie Owl Set', Kaisercraft patterned paper 'What A Hoot' collection and stamp, Copic Markers, Alpha Markers, Sunlit circle and flower punches, DMC thread, VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad, Micia brown ink pad, Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist, Antique Stamp alphabet, rhinestones, handmade paper rosettes, drywall tape and my trusty sewing machine. 

 Our sponsor this week is Limited Runs and I am thrilled to be given the Whootie Owl Set digital images to create my project. Click here for the cutest owls ever!
I used a beautiful sketch by Heather Waldron to create this page. If you are sketch lovers, take a peek at Heather's sketch designs at Home & Scrapped.
Here are some close-up photos:
 Last month I bought three different sizes of circle punches so been playing wild with them making rosettes since then. Previously I used circle cutter and that took longer time. So please don't be surprise if you keep seeing me making paper rosettes because I have gone crazy at the moment {chuckle}.
 I love using the alphas above. My recent toy as well.  
 I love stitching and had the urge to sew the trees by hand to make it pop.
So there you have it from me this time. I hope my layout inspire you to create your own using digital images. I look forward to see your submission at TTCRD.

Off I go into these challenges:
1. Home & Scrapped : January Sketch
 2. Crafting From The Heart : Always Anything Goes
3. Craft Your Passion : Always Anything Goes
4. Dream Valley : Anything Goes
5. Imagination-Crafts : Anything Goes

Until next time. Always look at the bright side of life.

Hugs and smiles,
