Two Birds with One Stone

This week, I combined the 4.7 Sketch Challenge at Sketchy Thursdays, with the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs (using brads on your lo or project).

I bought some 12x12 transparencies by Fancy Pants about 2 1/2 years ago, when I found out we were having a boy...and now I am finally getting around to using them!  :)  When I first started this lo, I didn't think I was going to like the end result, but I think it ended up being really cute.



The Sketch:



Products Used:

Paper:  The Paper Studio, DCWV
Transparency:  Fancy Pants
Brads:  Anna Griffin, Spare Parts
Embossing Folder:  Sizzix (Tim Holtz)
Thickers:  American Crafts
Pen:  Sakura
Tools:  Cuttlebug

That is so awesome! I have several transparencies and have yet to get the nerve to try them :)

I'm looking for blogs to feature on Scrapbooking Whimsy and this would be perfect for the vellum/transparency post coming up, if you'd be interested in sharing.
