My favourite thing at the moment is using HEAPS of different textures, materials and mediums all thrown together on a LO. I am definitely a MORE is BETTER girl!!! ;) I also really like to use embellishments that add to the story I am trying to convey or hold some significant / symbolic meaning on the LO.
So... my challenge is: get a little bit of everything onto your next LO.
Include at least one example of each (and every one) of the following elements: plastic; metal; chippie; cardstock; patterned paper; stickers; journaling spots / cards / stamps / stickers; felt / fabric; string; lace; ink; paint; sanding; distressing; tearing; tape; staples; bling; buttons and brads! That's a lot of elements to include I know but it's easier than you might first imagine.
I know my "sunshine" sample here is of my littlest darling... but given that September is for Father's Day... I would love to see some LOs of YOUR Little Princess with her Daddy or Poppy or Uncle or even her Big Brother... just call it an optional EXTRA requirement.
Just in case you were wondering, for the background of my "sunshine" I have used core-dinations cardstock... folded into thirds and put through my Cuttlebug in an embossing folder (Floral Fantasy) one end at a time, then heavily sanded and distressed it. I thought I was rather clever working out how to do this and I love the end result. I wasn't a huge fan of the core-dinations cs before... but now I am HOOKED! ;) I also popped some acetate in the same Cuttlebug folder and then hand cut out the leaves I wanted. Then I put a precut cb flower through in the same folder, being sure it was positioned in just the right place to get the image I wanted. Finally, I also put the actual photo itself through (on a bit of angle) and sanded and inked it as well.
Have fun... hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I enjoyed setting it!

...a LO just comes together... I really love how this turned out. My DH works away... and sometimes I forget to tell him how much he means to me... so this one's for you my love... ok, ok... enough of the mushy shit... we don't DO mushy shit! ;) (and YES, I know it should be you're NOT your in my handwritten journalling... but I am in my "embracing imperfection" phase atm... yeah, right, you know I'll try and fix it and stuff it up worse for sure!)

I had a mad dash to the shops to find a mirror yesterday morning... 3 shops and 2 hours later I finally found this at Red Dot (and only $10)... so here is my IDOL Round #3 Entry. You can see everyone else's here. Just click on an image to see it bigger and it will take you to a slideshow. Don't look too close though because they are all seriously FABULOUS and I want you to vote for ME, ME, ME... BINXCAT1... not them! ME!!!! ;)
I am not normally a fan of OTP... actually I DETEST them with a vengeance... so thanks heaps for the kick in the pants with this challenge. In the end I actually had heaps of fun with this one and am pretty happy with how it turned out... but it was VERY hard to get a decent photo so excuse my ugly mug in the pic.
I chose these products / colours because they suit the decor in my house, especially my bedroom, as that's where I was going to hang it...
