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!

Ounce Upon A Sketch

Scrap Around the World  From this mood board I took the colors of teal and gold, the wispy-ness of the hat and the threads and the gold shine of the last photo to inspire this creation.

Sea dreams

                             Sea Dreams

Greetings my fellow scrappers!  Today I thought we would go a bit nautical.  This was one of the last layouts I did for my son before leaving on vacation to London.  Awesome trip by the way!  Have you ever wonder about what you could do with all of those gorgeous tags you make?  Well, here is one I made and incorporated into this layout.   I hope you like it.

Here are a few close ups of each section.   Yes, I did a lot of fussy cutting for this one.

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