Hiyeee!! 7 days, no see!! Lol. I missed you! Did you miss me? Never mind, don’t answer that.
So today, I have a layout to share with you. Do you know, I was checking this last night, and I realized that the ONLY layouts I’ve made in the last year have been the ones I’ve made for a blog post here. That makes me so sad. I still have millions of photos and double that of paper and embellishments. It’s just TIME I don’t have. And I love stamping and card making so much it tends to gobble up any creative time I do have.
Anyway. A layout. I printed a bunch of b&w photos for our family reunion this summer and this one just kept floating to the top of the pile after I cleaned up. It’s my mom and her sister taken back in the 50’s. Aren’t they so cute??
Lori knows that I’m not a real “theme paper” girl. I just don’t like to be dictated to like that. I much prefer really generic, indistinct patterns for background paper, but this Fabulous line by Authentique was impossible to deny. Those cat’s eye glasses! The 50’s motifs! And there’s one GORgeous piece of paper in the pack with roses and leaves that I’m hoarding for just a little while longer.
Also, check out that watercolor painted rose! I made that!! I recently attended my second Pinner’s Conference – two days of all kinds of classes for things you might pin on Pinterest. Making perfect pie crust. Painting a wooden barn quilt. Learning to braid hair. Calligraphy lettering. And so on. One of the classes I attended was painted watercolor roses and this one came from my practice sheet!
I haven’t attempted them again….I’m pretty sure that was the best water color painting day I’ll ever have in my life!
The vellum leaves are from Prima, the enamel hearts are Illustrated Faith by Bella Blvd, the pink gingham heart and “classy” stickers are from the same Fabulous paper pack as the patterned papers I’ve used here, and the puffy floral stickers are from Pink Paislee (Oh My Heart) and Pebbles. The two green card stock leaves are ones I cut out with the Silhouette. And the black foam title words are Thickers by Amy Tangerine.
Thanks for stopping by today!
