Treasure The Moment: Stuck?! Sketch Challenge

I finished my CSI Guest Designer layouts for February (the first of which will be revealed on Wednesday--check back!) early enough that I was able to do a Stuck?! Sketches Challenge. This has been a productive scrapping month!

Here's the sketch:

In an effort to get this in on time {thanks again, Cold--you've once again kicked me when I'm down}, so I'll be back to post some detailed shots soon.

{And by soon I mean sometime in some distant future that is definitely not quite yet.}

So, maybe I'll see you...maybe not. I don't want to make promises, but I remain hopeful. {In a world with fibromyalgia, you just have to take it one day at a time and remain optimistic!}

UPDATE (Feb 4): Better late than never! Here's some close-ups, so I can check this off the mental to-do list!

I made the blue flowers when I was creating some prototypes for a collection I was creating for my dear friend Lisa Landry from ILuvCats and Scraps, who incidentally, published a layout today using the flowers I made for her! You know that put a big ol' sappy grin on my face! Go check out her beautiful layout "In Tuxedo"--done in her favorite purples and blues!

And another little tidbit, Lisa had sent a goodie box for Christmas and that's where I got the beautiful pale blue Prima flower with the pearl center. It was the perfectly glittery and frosty centerpiece!

The chipboard from Blue Fern Studios (which I am now a proud supplier of in the kits in my Etsy shop!) was so fun to treat. I used a pale blue embossing powder, sprinkled with a little ebony. Then I used some gesso and puff paint, topped with some embossing powder that I didn't treat with heat, leaving it raw like sprinkles of snow.

That's it for the update! Now that it's Saturday, I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend, especially if you're scrapping :)
