Caress and Create **Swirlydoos**

Ahhhhhhh…..what I would give to be where this photo is now….ahhhhh….daydreaming of sun and the beaches. Ok "snap" out of it Shona, it is winter, get used to it J

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. What better photo to go with the rich and bright papers from my Swirlydoos January Retro Tapestry kit than a beach photo. The photo is my daughter in law when she was pregnant. I love the silhouette look of her against the sun set and ocean. Look at that cute little belly . Caress and Create…..for the baby inside of her.
I distressed a lot of the layers in this layout. The butterflies I cut them out and added some liquid pears and distress stickles to them. The butterfly swirls are a Prima say it with pearls and the peach is liquid pearls. I actually painted on some swirls with smooch first but I did not like the look...so Prima pearls came to the rescue and saved me, hehe

The chippy scroll and chippys letters are from Dusty Attic. I inked them with a moss color first then added some distress stickles to them. The flowers came with the kit.
Below is a close up of the cute Prima vine that came with the kit and more DA chippys letters.

In the top corner I added a flower postcard that came with the kit and another butterfly. I added some liquid pearls in the corners of the card. Around the photo I tucked in some black tulle.
I am looking forward to receiving my new kits in the next couple of weeks. I anticipate a couple of heritage layouts from them. And one order is full of Dusty Attic and I am pretty excited about that. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week, be safe and stay warm. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
