You Make the Grade

Hi all and happy Sunday! I just bought a bunch of different MME paper pads and I couldn't wait to cut into some of it....have to say, it was hard to decide on WHICH pack to start with...but I ended up picking patterns from "A Mother's Love."


The layout is Deconstructed Sketch #63 and I picked my "You Make the Grade" PI girl for this week's Paper Players Challenge.  The PI girl was stamped in Memento Tuxedo black, cut out with a Spellbinders Apple die, sponged with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass (with the apple die in place), and colored with Copics (0, W1, W3, W5, E00, E02, E11, E13, E31, E33, E35, E37, E51, YR65, G20, YG63, AND YG67).  The apple is up on foam tape and the A+ oval is up on a second layer of foam.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Sunday!
