Hello Beautiful...

Butterfly Bush...

 Hi everyone,  Today I am sharing a layout, I made by using two different size flower stamps.  I first stamp the flowers using black ink, then colored the inside of the flowers using Peerless transparent watercolors. I love the results I got with this, and decide to make some butterflies. I stamp the butterflies out, color it in with the Peerless and use the Big Shot to cut it out. I used brads to anchor the butterflies in place. Add pattern paper in a vertical strips, with a circle on the opposite side. Around the circle I wrote the words Butterfly Bush, added my title and finish the page off with a phrase on the photo. Thanks for stopping by :)

                                       Here is a close-up of the Peerless Watercolor :)

Forever In My Heart...

Mother And Son....

Good Morning, Today I'm sharing a layout I made using a picture I found of my husband and his mom, who passed away in Aug. 2010.  My background paper was white with black polka dots, I wanted to bring some blue in from the shirt. So I got my Baby Blue Liquid Pearls and added some dots to the black circles, then I took a Copic sketch, and color the circle edges.  I used a few different cut file for this page. The rose cluster came from a freebie,  the frame came from Silhouette shop,and for the title I used Remember by
I did change the words in the cut file from (forever in your heart) to forever in my heart.  I back the rose cluster with three different pattern paper, added a few stickers and some butterflies.  Thanks for stopping by :)
