A Perfect Day is…

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog J We are finally having just a gorgeous summer here, took long enough to arrive but it is here and in full force! I think I better head off to the beach today J Ok this layout is a rare one. You see I am not a fan of scrapping ME! But I love this photo of me and my daughter so here it is. I used the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch and the color palette from TCR. I did some stamping behind the vines and layers and tried to make it look like a trellis. The chippy is from Dusty attic and I made my own leaves and the orange flowers. I gotta say I LOVE those flowers! I will do a tutorial soon on how to make them, they were super easy! Here is the sketch and layout.




I had to start out with “A perfect day is…” so here is the title section. I added some liquid pearls and a couple of punched butterflies to the rub on.

Here are a couple of close ups of the stamping, and the flowers that I made.


I also made this card. I got the pattern from one of the DT at Pion Designs and I will make lots of these cards. It is a Tea Light Card…what a great gift for someone. I have already made two for my gf to give as gifts. She was over for a visit and grabbed them up as fast as she could..I had not even taken photos of them yet and had to run outside to get them fast!


As you can see it looks like a little book and when you open it up there is a little box with 6 tea light candles inside it. I just love it!!!



Ok well that is it for today. Don’t forget about the fabulous Blog Candy Giveaway at Scrap That! YUMMY…I want it, LOL. 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
