Admire beauty

Scrap Around the World has just inspired me so this month.  I love fairy tales!  Proms bring out the fairy essence in every girls life.  I took this picture of my daughter as she prepared for the prom.

Instead of showing you her messy room I put her in a fairy glen filled with flowers, moss, feathers and leaves. 

Here I combine two pieces of Creative Embellishment chippies to create this corner piece.
Thank you for stopping by today to see what the papers are saying.  I always enjoy your visit.  Til next time have a fabulously magical weekend!

A Beautiful Day

                                 A Beautiful Day

 Earlier this week I was invited to join the Creative Embellishment    Design Team!  I was over the moon with excitement.  I am a huge fan of their product as you can see by this design.

 Scrap Around the World mood board this month is all about fairy tales.  As I pulled by the lace canopy from the bassinet I discovered a baby prince.  He is the prince of my heart, my first grandchild.
 The bassinet is nestled in a flower covered meadow protected by the fairies.
 At the tip of this floral grouping is a tooth pick. 
 Here are some close ups of the beautiful Creative Embellishment chipboard pieces.  Simply magical

Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.

Sunshine in Regent Park - Craft Hoarder's Anonymous

Sunshine in Regent Park - {Craft Hoarder's Anonymous Guest Design Team}

 Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be this month's Guest Designer for Craft Hoarder's Anonymous.  There is nothing more therapeutic than rummaging into those paper and embellie stashes to see what you can create.  This week's challenge #15 is all about flowers.  It is almost embarrassing to think how long I have have the base sunflower paper I used here.  lol!
This is a picture of my daughter during our recent trip to London this summer.  Regent Park is so fragrant from all the blooming flowers which made it a sure fit for this challenge.

The base paper is filled with sunflowers followed by a soft teal card stock paper which I used my lace punch on then topped with this lovely door paper with stamping, misting and inking.  I used a variety of flowers that have been vacationing in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today and I hope you will join in on the challenge over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous.

All of these are from my stash and did not have labels attached.  8(

For You

I am super excited to be a Special Investigator for this weeks CSI case file #138!

The Scheme:  Bookish blue, Busy brown, notebook beige, Think pink and Studios dark teal green were all used.
Evidence:  The ones I used were a ruler, damask in the paper, an envelope numbers and a map.  Wow!  and to think I only need to use two!! lol!
Testimony: Presentation: Tuck your journaling in an envelope.

 This was a wonderful way for me to finally create a layout of my son high school class picture.
I loved working with Creative Embellishment chippies.  The color combo I used to paint them includes pink.

Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  I hope you will join us over at CSI for this fun case file!

Creative Embellishments I used various sizes of chipboard gears.

Cherished moments for you

                        Cherished Moments for you!

Relaxing by the pond at Regent Park London England after a long flight!
 I just love this teal orange combo that is found in the SATW mood board.  Also, the way the feather hat seems to be blowing in the breeze made me feel out doorsy. And last but not least, the shoe inspired the birdcages.
Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  I had such fun putting this layout together.

Whisper a Dream

                W h i s p e r    a  Dream

 I had a grand time working with 7 Dots Studio Love is in the Air paper on this project!  Here it looks as if my son's puppy is whispering something funny into his ear thus things of which make dreams.

 With masking, spritzing of paints, tearing of cheese clothe, sprinkling of crushed glass, tucking of golden thread and stamping I have created the ethereal wisp of a summer breeze.
 At the bottom of the page is a cloud corner catching and saving the dreams.  Journaling of this day is found on the back of the page.
 I took this version of the layout in direct sunlight for a different view.
Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  And yes, I did alter the layout from the linkz pic you see on the challenge sites.  It just said what's with the boozo flower!  I'm telling you, the papers really do talk! And there always right!!  lol     Now it's time to go outside and play!
