Well I should have posted this card a few weeks ago, but I have been working on so may projects that I haven't had time. Besides cards are never my first priority. I made this card for a challenge over at Swirlydoo's. It was the round robin challenge and I tied for first place. It's hard to take the credit when you are following others examples, but I was happy with the end result.
I hope you find inspiration in this for your own cards. Thanks for stopping by.
Hello again. I have finished another layout using the February kit from Swirlydoo's. I used a combination of Prima flowers with Dusty Attic flowers. The chain chipboard is from Blue Fern Studios. The leaves were made with the Spellbinders Foliage die set. I put green texturez paint from Shimmerz Paints on the leaves, and after that was dry I sprayed them with White Linen Dylusions mist. I thought they came out perfect for this layout. I also sprayed a few sides of the paper with the White Linen mist. I used the Martha Stewart Doily punch for a border near the top and bottom and only let a portion of it show. The heart was made using one of Martha Stewart's art clay and molds. I thought it was the perfect touch. I am having fun with the art clay. I think I need to find more molds. Here is my layout. I hope you enjoy it.
Hello, I am back again with a new layout to show you using Fab Scrap papers. These came in the wonderful kit I get from Swirlydoo's! It is another wedding layout and I just love this simple but yet touching picture! I am doing some of the wedding pics in black and white, and then will probably go back and do them again in color if I find the right papers that match. Basically for this layout I did a lot of distressing, layering, and spraying. Really quite simple because for me it's like doing a tag, and I find them easy. Filling up a page is more challenging to me, but to get caught up on pictures you may see me doing more of these.

I am back again with a new layout to share. I started getting my monthly kits from Swirlydoo's again and January's kit had some very pretty Fab Scrap papers. For this layout I chose the softer colors, because the picture I am using is from my youngest son's wedding. This is the first of many wedding photos you will see.
In the kit there was a package of tiny mirrors. Unfortunately, you don't get the full effect in the picture. The silver of the mirrors is so very pretty. I wrapped pearls around them because I did not like them plain.
Here is my layout:

I am finally back to scrapping after a very loooong break! Life was getting so hectic and I really needed to take a break. The most important thing that happened during that time was that my youngest son got married. I am so happy for him.
Anyway, I am finally ready to get back to scrapping. The layout I am about to share with you has been on my desk for months. I did attempt to scrap during my time off but really had no time to devote to it. I can stare at a layout for hours and get absolutely nowhere, but now I should have time to get back in the game.
For this layout I used Graphic 45's, A Ladies Diary collection. It's so pretty! I have plans for the rest of the paper that I hope will come to fruition! You will want to see if it does! Love this paper!!
To create this layout I cut most of my accents out of the paper. Such as the flowers and clocks. I added a few chippies, and did a lot of punching. I hope you enjoy it.
