Scraplift With Sun-Kissed!

Hi all! For this week's post I decided to scraplift fellow DT girlie, Diana! She created this adorable LO of her child's Lovie. I loved this idea the moment I saw it because my 13 year old son has a little stuffed green frog that he will NOT part with. He sleeps with it every night! It has been such an important part of his life that it was important to me to document it!

Here is Diana's FABULOUS LO! Love how she did the paint in the background and her use of the DP!
Since I am painting "challenged," I decided to play it safe and do a bit of spritzing with my Glimmer Mists. It added just the right amount of color! I loved Diana's use of white space and the I copied that! Everything here is from the Sun-Kissed kit except the buttons (American Crafts), the doily, and the Make Believe Fun (October Afternoon).
Here is "Froggy." My son was 2 when he named him.....hence the creative name! LOL! He is in pretty good shape....considering he has been washed and sewn many, many times!

I love how using someone else's LO as a starting point makes scrappin' easier! It takes some of the thinking out of it!
Thanks Diana for inspiring me!
