Beautiful Girl

June posted a challenge on AMR, as part of the September Photo of the Day challenge. The challenge was this: use 1 piece of cardstock, 1 piece of patterned paper, one non-scrappy item, and 3-5 eyelets. Embellishments must be made from the patterned paper. Chipboard could be used only if it was covered with the patterned paper. NO ribbons, NO minibrads, NO acrylic.. nothing else.

I chose these papers:

The patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Out & About shortstack with glitter. I cut out the glittered part, first with scissors, then with a craft knife. Applied pop dots to the back, then set it aside. {Not sure I would want to do this much cutwork again.. it took an hour or more just for that!}
Tore off the corner of the remaining PP scrap and inked it with StazOn Timber Brown ink. Once I decided where I wanted it and the photo to go, I marked on the cardstock, and cut a scrap out of the center. This is what I used for the letters. Once this was done the PP, photo, and cutwork were applied to the cardstock {which came out of my stash, so I am not sure which company it belongs to}.

Letters were stamped with StazOn and Techinique Tuesday's Eiffel Tower letters {I really really want to get the lowercase set}. Letters were cut out and edge distressed, and attached to the LO with pop dots.

The photo corner was made by punching first chipboard, then the patterned paper with the EK Success corner punch. The pieces put together, the edges were inked, and then the corner was adhered to the photo.

Holes were made for the eyelets using the Big Bite, but I had trouble lining them up afterwards, so I had to use my old eyelet tools. {LOL. Took me a while to find that little hammer, I haven't used it for so long.}

My something non-scrappy is the flower - it was originally a hair tie. I attached it with a bunch of glue dots.

{Incidentally, this is one of my favorite photos of Rhi.. I love the way she is peeking up from behind her flyaway hair.}
