So Sad

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. My son and family arrived yesterday for a few days of visiting family and friends. I got lots of photos yesterday and this is one of them. The photo is my grand daughter and she is so sad that her left for a bit. I used papers from the girl’s paperie and this weeks palette from TCR. I also decided to use the sketch this week at Once Upon a  … Sketch. I so lack in journaling and definitely want to journal more often. This is the palette and the sketch.


This is my take on it. I did lots of distressing and lots of layers. I did machine stitching and did lots of masking and stamping.

In the top corner you can see the machine stitching and the stamping and masking under the layers. The cute little butterflies are from a MS punch then I just inked them and added some pearls to them.


Close up of the journaling section. It reads.
At this moment your lil heart is broken.
Your dad has gone into town without you.
You hope he is home soon.
You miss him already.

Close up of the flower cluster and layers of goodies and I tucked in a Dusty Attic scroll piece.


Close up of the masking that I did to match up to the color palette.

Ok well that is it for today. I love the masking on this layout with the soft colors, and the journaling was fun. I will have to try that again soon. I am off tomorrow for some fun activities with the grand kids….cant wait. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
