A bit of bling!!

Well, I just couldn't help myself, could I !! Being home gets a it boring after a while, so I thought I would do another entry for Keesh's sketch challenge below before I head back to work tomorrow.
I have turned the sketch on it's side to create my page. I have used retired DS paper, chocolate chip and purely pomegranate card stock. Chocolate chip ribbon, a jumbo eyelet & cropodile, bling and rub ons.

I used a compass to draw the 6in' circle before it was cut out. The small corner punch was used to create the scallop effect around the circle. The scallop, circle and slit punches were also used. The slit punch has been used for the jumbo eyelet as an anchor for a photo. I used foam dots to mat the circle and placed bling around one side to draw attention to the photo, that is when I get around to finding the right one.

A large gem brad was attached to the ribbon and closed off before I stuck the ribbon down. I have always wanted to use rub ons on ribbon and thought I would give it a try.

Here is a close up to show some more of the detail on my page. As I am not really a photographer, I find it hard to get the right angles and let's face it my camera is only a cheapie that I have had for a few years now. Must invest in a good quality one before convention, hey.

So until next time
