Blue Fern Studio July Challenge

If I haven't said it enough I am in love with Blue Fern Studio's chipboard.  They are so delicate but durable.  I just had to jump in on their July Challenge.  FYI:  I purchased my BFS chipboard through A Cherry On Top (no commission).  Fast, easy, and I have a coupon code for you for:  By using this code you can get 15% off all new items. NEWSTUFF15  It saved me several dollars. 

Here is my little ballerina.  I am so proud of how this little 2 year old has taken to the grace and beauty of ballet.  It is so much fun to just watch the teacher create magic with the girls dancing. 

Let's Break It Down

Antique Lace
Bag O' Buttons buttons
7 gypsies tags
Tim Holtz Tiny Fastener 
Internet clip art
Photoshop Elements
Blue Fern Studio Sketch

A fun tip:  there are all types of free clip art on the internet.  I found the ballerina that is on the tag in a black silhouette. I saved  it to Photoshop Elements.  I found the right color pink and used my paint bucket for a quick change of color.  Then I printed it onto a 7 gypsies tag.

The banner turned tag:  This is a BFS banner piece.  I clipped off the ends and one of the banners (which I used on another layout) and carefully straighten the banner out and tacked it with Glue Dot Adhesives.  Here are the orginals in the package.

Who can resist a title like this as well as another cute photo of Little.  

Overall I had a blast.  I can wait to show you more Blue Fern Studio.  Nope, I don't design for them but give me time.  LOL

Have a Crafty Day!
