TSB Challenge #1

Today is an exciting day over at The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog as we are starting our new bi-weekly challenges, so make sure to check in every other Tuesday for the challenge.  Also there will be one lucky winner of 5 images of their choice from TSB Store + 3 projects will be chosen as Top 3 and get a cool blinie/button for their blogs!

Are you ready?   Well grab those embellies and embossing folders becuase to start things off the challenge is all about:

The Stamping Boutique 
T=Texture, S=Sparkle, B=Buttons

So I decided to start things off with a layout for this challenge and am going to try to always make layouts for challenges to show how digital images can be used in scapbooking.  I grabbed my new fave scrapbooking idea book CTMH Magic decided to use this cute layout called BackStage, this is the left side of double layout (stay tuned for right side coming soon to coordinate).  I knew I wanted to make something fun and springy and this cute lil' gal called Bunny Egg was perfect!  I colored her with Copics and then added lots of sparkle with my black Spica pen and Sparkly Fluff in Cotton Candy Pink that I picked up at i {heart} papers store.  I also cut out the bow and egg shell and popped it up just a smidge.

I grabbed my fave Cuttlebug embossing folder, Swiss Dots to add a little texture to my half circle.  All edges are inked with CTMH Ink Pads- Baby Pink and Key Lime.  I added all those fantastic buttons, which are also from CTMH and a little ribbon and my masterpiece is almost complete.  Just need a nice Easter photo to call this one done!

Here is a close-up of my sweet lil' bunny friend all sparkly and ready for some Easter fun!  Now what are you waiting for, go dig into your fave embelllies (Kim- it's that box of goodies I always want to play in, LOL!) and show us your texture, sparkle, and buttons!  You can join the challenge and find all the deets here.
