Hi everyone!! Looks like we may be seeing the end of this nasty weather down here in Texas... The only good thing about it is I didn't mind scrapping because the weather is so cold I don't want to be outside... And since today is Thursday, we have another fabulous sketch over at Sketches In Thyme and I hope you will join us!!! Here is the sketch...
While I was looking for photos to use for this layout. I came across these photos of my DD Amanda taken back in 1998, I've been waiting to scrap them because I wanted to do something different. So I looked through my ever ending paper stash and I came across the beautiful Creative Imaginations Signature Collection I got in Last Mays swirlydoos kit... When I got the kit I had no idea what photo(s) to use with this beautiful paper. But as I looked closer at the photos and paper,I think they would compliment each other nicely... Luckily I had 2 of each of the pages so I could cut the curtains and layer them, and put the photo and heart between the layers... I also added the fibers between the valance... I'm thinking the results are elegant but playful and Amanda loved it....
Here are a few close ups
Here is a Petaloo flower cluster which I tied with a black satin ribbon.. You can also see one of the curtains I cut and layered over a piece of Creative Imaginations Christine Adolph paper...
Here is a Dusty Attic chandelier that I added stickles just to add a little/lot of sparkle, and the music notes are another Dusty Attic piece that I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.. You can also see a portion of the heart I cut out of Creative Imaginations Marah Johnson Creme Music paper, to give that layout that kind of dreamy/romantic feel...
And finally, here is a close up of the fun beaded eyelash trim and beautiful beaded ribbon I added to the valance for some fun texture... You can see the Thickers also...
