Where I Live **TCR#44**

Wow it is Sunday already, where did this weekend go. I went to the 25th anniversary party last night and the altered box and layout in the shadow box frame gifts were a hit J  They loved them both. I love making gifts and I really put my heart into them. Todays layout is for The Color Room #44 palette. I did find the colors challenging this week, no blacks or browns were allowed. I used the sketch that went with this palette. The photo is taken from the golf course that is close to where I live. Mara Lake is in the back ground. This golf course is so gorgeous and the views from every hole are amazing.
I used distressing ink on the doily and added some chalk inks. I used a Martha Stewart punch under the photo and added one gem to the center flower. I distressed a lot of layers in this layout and added some ZVA gems and pearls in the corners. The title l cut out and added some inks and stickles to them.
The white swirl leaves are cut out with my cricut and I added some ink to them. The fern type leaves are fussy cut ones then I just kind of scrunched them for dimension. The small flowers are Prima and I added some distress stickles to them.
The three larger flowers and leaves I made. The large green flower is from a tutorial at Swirlydoos and the two white ones are my own, I still want to get a tutorial on here soon on how to make them, they are so easy to make.
Ok well that is the view from around where I live. Mountains everywhere you look. Although right now everything is white, yuck….hehe….I am ready for Spring soon. OH I almost forgot to tell...I submited 3 layouts to Scrapbook News and Review Magazine and they are going to publish all 3 of them in the Feb 13th issue. YIPPEE, that was on my scrappy bucket list..hehe. They are all on older posts on here but I have to remove them this week until after the publication.

Aslo here is a heads up...Swirlydoos has a great give away on their blog right now...but not for much longer so head on over to their blog for a chance at some brand new CHA goodies. 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
