This layout is one of my favorites!! I wanted to make it so feminine and sweet. The photo is my friend Suzan and I while we were at a wedding in Houston. We have been friends for 60 years. She is 3 months older than me and we lived next door to each other. We always had a great time playing in the neighborhood. Then one day my parents told me we were moving. How sad I was leaving all my friends. We, however, remained close and 39 years ago she married my cousin. So now we are family! How blessed I am!!!!
I love the Prima papers because they seem to have a very soft and dainty look. I used white bazzill cardstock and then I found my Martha Stewart punch and used around the edges of the paper. I then inked around it so it would stand out. I had a lamp post which I used white crackle paint and then I inked around the edges. I added little pink bows to each lamp as well. I had several Prima flowers and some other little flowers from my stash. I also added feathers to give the feel of something very soft. I could not find a banner so I went online and found what I needed and put it into PowerPoint and added friends. After I had the layout all together I added small pearls and then Star Dust stickles (little dots) all over the layout.
Thank you so much for looking!!
