I Never Knew What Love is Until Ewe

Well, it's been a little while. I need to post more often, but this project took a crazy amount of time, I made this layout with the intention of selling it on ebay, or at least attempting too... But I probably won't post it on there until next weekend. Although it took forever to make I think it was worth it. And if it doesn't sell I have two beautiful nieces, so I'm sure the layout won't be 'wasted', LOL It's nice to do something girly for a change.

This is the two layouts together. I used Bazzil Bling for the backround. The photo mat on the far right has a pull out tag that is big enough for more pictures or journalling. I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut out the stars and hand stitched them.

I used a ton of Prima flowers and Say it in Crystals. I machine stitched all of the photo mats. I used inking and some chalking for a little more dimension. I used my cricut for the fences and grass (Paper Doll Dress Up) and the sheep (Animal Kingdom). The title is cut with the Calligraphy cartridge.

All of the ribbons are Making Memories and the little hearts are K&Co stickers.

I spent hours on these sheep to get them perfect. My son was unusually demanding last week and I was only able to scrap in bursts LOL, so these did take forever! I had so many mess ups! But I flocked all of the sheep twice to give them more texture. Then I added a little bit of chalk to make the texture really show up. This layout is full of little details like that. I think it makes it really unique.

So, if anyone was wondering what I've been up to... here she is! Thanks so much for reading. Have a super sweet day!
