SO Fabulous ~SOUS February 12~

SO Fabulous

Well we have yet another sketch from the so fabulous Liz Qualman. She is a scrapbooker herself and a wonderful sketch artist (I have yet to see something she has done that I do not like!) Please, if you haven't so far, go check her out!

Oh no, I almost forgot to share the exciting news for SOUS this week..we have our very first Guest Designer...Magical Wanda! Please check out her blog if you have not, she is amazing!

This is a special LO to me because it is my first one with just my niece Maddie. I was there for her birth and have taken care of her since she was a toddler. She is more a sister to my kids then a cousin. What cracks me up is how similar some of her sassy faces are to my daughter Jordyn. Family ties! LOL! And she will soon be performing in her first play! I am so proud of her! 9 years old is looking pretty big to me!

onto the LO....printed paper is K&Co. Solid cardstock and glitter cardstock is DCWV.

Butterfly and So Fabulous are cuts from Graphically Speaking. Everything else is a mish mash of my supplies. There were some subtle details here that I had fun adding. Little dots of silver metallic pen. A rubber stamp with a distressed splatter look (you can see that better on the solid pieces of paper in the next 2 photos). Rhinestones on brads. And my funky black fiber.

I added the next few photos because well...we know how much we love to see more photos! LOL! Its great to see the whole LO but we'd miss the details if it were not for these extra's...

I could not believe how gorgeous the title came out! I (again) used my grungepaper and then layered the DCWV glitter cardstock on top of it. It all cut perfectly and added a ton to the page!

And well...we'll call it a day! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and please check out what my friends did at SOUS with this very same sketch!

Leah... girl...this ROCKS! I think this is my favorite of your LOs so far. (And you have had some pretty spectacular ones!) You have so many extras but they are done in such a subtle way that they add to the fabulous look but don't deter from the photo! (She is a beautiful young lady btw!!) Love all the extra paper clippy things you used but I am totally digging that title! WOW!! So cool!! I am going to seriously be using some of these ideas in my daughter's LOs!! Thanks for another great LO that inspires! You and the girls at SOUS are really amazing!
