Hi everyone and I hope you are having a great weekend! I decorated my house yesterday, pretty much finished my Christmas shopping today (the dogs bought me some really beautiful new slippers, hehe)….and now I just have to tackle wrapping them..not a favourite of mine. The first 2 gifts always get wrapped so gorgeous, bows and ribbons and then I get sick of it and they all start to look like a 2 year old wrapped them  hehe…actually they might do a better job of it!!!! LOL! Ok so on with my layout, I made this one using this weeks palette at The Color Room. I had a lot of problems with this weeks palette..but I do like the way this turned out in the end. I used just plain beige card stock and made my own back ground. I also made all of the flowers. The white ones I used my cricut to make them and the blue one is from some hand dyed silk and a glubber. LOVE GLUBBERS! If you have not seen them, google UTube for them, they are amazing for making fabric blooms. The photo is my grandson playing in some leaves and having a great time doing it.


I did lots of masking and inking on the background. Here is a close up of one of my flowers. I tucked some gauze and goodies in behind it.

Another close up of my flowers and leaves. In the background you can see the fence mask and I did some stamping on top of it. I used some Donna Salazar papers for the flowers and also on a background layer.

I love these Dusty Attic trees and finally got to use one. I did lots of misting and added some glimmer glam, glaze and stickles to it. The background here is a Prima mask and glimmer mists.

Ok well that is it for today.  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
