Getting Ready ~~Imaginarium Designs~~

Hi My Friends,  This is a June project I did for Imaginarium Designs that I'm sharing with you today.  This is the Graphic 45 "Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection.  I'll tell you, I did a lot of fussy cutting for lots of butterflies on this layout, lol!!  This is a photo of my dd's best friend and her hubby.  They finally had a beautiful baby boy!

I altered the chippies by painted them with some Folk Art "Wicker White".  I wanted to keep them simple and clean to really pop on the page.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

You & Me ~~Scraps of Darkness~~

Hello Again, This is my last reveal day layout.  This is another project that I used the 7 Dots Studio Wonderland Collection for, just love those papers!!!  This is an amazing kit and you guys should grab one up while you can!!  For this design I made a lot of little banners for the bottom half along with a small banner of circles under the frame.  The chipboard is from the amazing Imaginarium Designs.  I altered them by painting them white with some Folk Art "Wicker White" and then used a fanned paint brush to lightly paint the frame with some Folk Art Brown.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your sweet blog hugs!!

Here's a couple of close-ups of the chipboard work and the little circle banner.

Country Charm ~~Scraps of Elegance~~

Good Evening My Friends,  This is another project using June's amazing kit "Country Charm".  I used the wonderful Donna Salazar "Botanique" Collection,  just beautiful by the way!!  This is my friend's youngest dd Lauren and the small photo of of her and her sister Amy, love these girls.  For this project I did some layering and used some of the amazing products that I've been hoarding from Melissa Frances, can't get enough of her beauties!!  I tried my hand at some texture paste and frosted the flowers from I Am Roses.  Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you enjoy our BLOG HOP starting tomorrow morning and going through the 4th.  We have a wonderful surprise guest and lots of prizes to win, so come on and join in on the fun!!!!

Here's a couple of close-ups of the Country Charm project.

Pretty Lady ~~Scraps of Elegance~~

Hello again my beautiful friends, this is my first layout with the June Kit "Country Charm".  This is my take on June's sketch challenge using a beautiful sketch from our ever-talented SuePup.  This is a photo of my Mom when she was pregnant with me at the Unknown Soldier in Washington D.C. in 1953.  I used the beautiful Donna Salazar "Botanique" Collection.  These papers are just beautiful with a real shabby country charm to them.   The little "tickets" are from Webster's Pages Fabric Tickets Collection.  The beautiful resin pieces are from Prima's Shabby Chic Treasures Collection.  The stamping in the corners are from Tim Holtz which I inked using the Prima's Ingvild Bolmee Rusty Bucket inker in the kit.  The gorgeous butterflies are from our very own Renea, thanks sista!  Thanks so much for stopping by, your sweet thoughts mean so much!!
