Officially my first LO

Scroll down for my giveaway

So this is my very first LO ever!!!  I have stayed away from making LO for long because I used to think they were a lot of work..and complicated ,but trust me I found making a LO quite ok. There is so much you can do on LO and you don't have to be 100% neat..a minor mistake here or there doesn't show as much as it shows on a card perhaps.I made this LO for the challenge at Lulupu.The DT have provided very nice tutes on how to get going for your LOs.
.Feb was my fav month of this year because I had gone to my hometown to meet my relatives.. all of my  cousins,aunts and uncles had gotten together to meet my daughter. The LO has a picture of one of my cousins liftin my daughter high up in the air...the weather was great as it was just the beginning of spring and we had this get-together at my aunt's farmhouse so that's why the LO has so many flowers and butterflies.
Coming to the details..I have used every possible method known to me for making my own embellies from PPs. So 95% of the embellies are handmade..all the flowers are handmade from Prima Zephyr collection using techniques I learnt from various blogs..The butterflies and flourish  and the tiny birds above the photo are embossed and fussy cut.I  used some die cuts.some punched embellies too. The two medallions/rossettes were handmade without a scoreboard and were really painfully difficult to make.The letters are hand drawn , fussy cut and then embossed them with clear embossing powder to give a faux epoxy look.I have left some space below and near the photo for journaling which I will do later.The picket fence is made from rolls of paper.Hope you like my attempt.

100 followers giveaway

Hi dearies..I have been thinking of a giveaway for a long time now..just didn't get around to doing it due to serious lack of time :-(  ..Haven't had time to take part in any challenges this month :-(
But first of all let me thankyou my dear followers (read cyber friends) for staying with me all along..and for your sweet comments too. As a small token of appreciation I am giving away this really small candy..I plan to giveaway some more stuff till my blogaversary happens but let's see how that goes..for now let the picture above show you what you will get if you comment on this post ..telling me what items would your ideal candy include..I will try to include atleast one item if possible in my next giveaway..(.and do link my candy in your sidebar if possible...not a necessity). In this candy I wanted the washi tapes,fabric tapes and mulberry flowers to be the center of attraction with a few ricrac and crochet trims too.  Have fun and good luck!!
