My first challenge EVER!

For my very first challenge I was inspired by the Scrap Our Stash Challenge #24!


This awesome sketch by Karan Gerber encouraged me to create the first page for my daughter's scrapbook (I have been trying to catch up on my son's scrapbook before I started my daughter). The challenge also motivated me to use a lot of my (ever growing) stash to complete the task of using an element for each letter in the word S-T-E-N-C-I-L.

Here is my finished page!
 
To complete the stash challenge here are the elements I used:
 
S- Sugar Chic Paper by Heidi Swapp (which I absolutely ADORE!) 

T- Thread (using the Sew Easy tool by We R Memory Keepers)
 
E- Eclectic metal sign "crazy for you"
 
N- Newborn head band
 
C- Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge
 
I- Inkadinkado Stamping Gear
 
L- Leather ribbon

I had so much fun putting this page together, I love using more girly embellishments than I have in the past with my son's scrapbook! Let me know what you think!



I added a gold layer to the flower. I love the inkadinkadoo stamps, they are so fun to use!


There is also gold leather ribbon!


The newborn head band C is wearing in the picture became a great addition to my page.


'Crazy for you' metal sign.


Just recently started using the Sew Easy tool, I love it!


I am obsessed with all of the little details in this gorgeous paper!


 
 Y'all have a scrap'n good time!
