Here is another layout of my daughter Mandy who got married in October.  I used a beautiful chipboard which I painted two colors and then used embossing powder.  Afterwards I used stickles to give to a little sparkle.  I cut out small pieces of paper, inked them and then added crackle paint which gives it a rustic look.  I used a fine tip marker to make the sewing marks around the green paper and then added lots of flowers.  On the small flowers I added embossing powder to those as well.  

Thank you for looking!

This is my lovely daughter Mandy.  She got married October 5, 2013.  She married Steve Gray and they have built a new home in Fulshear, Texas.  In case you do not know where that is, it is by Katy just outside of Houston.  She has a 13 year old son, Logan, which is her pride and joy.  He is going into high school, 5'11" tall and a very handsome young man.  He is also extremely bright.  He is in the Gifted and Talented Program.  He qualified in the National Level.  I am not sure where he gets that from...certainly not from me!  LOL  Her two brothers asked if I could please put together a wedding album and here is one of the pages.  It is her second marriage and his as well.  He has no children and thinks of Logan as his own.

She wore a cream colored gown with a beautiful purple tie with crystals.  She looked so lovely.  The men wore brown suits and burnt orange accents.  Since it was fall the colors were orange, green, yellow, and brown.  Everything looked gorgeous!   They were married outside by a small lake.  

I used the colors of her wedding to make this album.  I will be showing all the pages that I create.

Thank you for looking and I hope each of you have a wonderful day!

Design Team Challenge

Design Team Challenge with Ginger

Good morning everyone!!
Today we have Ginger and her wonderful
project to show off. We have the most talented ladies
on our Design Team- I am so happy to be able 
to work with all of them!!
Here is what Ginger has to say about her project;
 Yes, when I was given all the items that we had to use it really took my breath away.  I could not imagine what I could come with and I thought for several days.  Finally...I thought...why not make a birdhouse.  You see, I collect birds and birdhouses and this just might work.
I first painted the birdhouse with white Gesso.  I had in my stash this cute paper which looks like old wood that had been painted.  I painted these cute little birds blue and used a fine tip marker to outline around each one.  I found pretty little blue stones to make their eyes.  I was given a clear square and added behind it Home Sweet Home on a white piece of cardstock and added light pink around the edges.  I went outside and got a little twig and moss so the little bird would have something to sit on.  I added a half circle of cardstock, flowers, buttons, butterfly, stick pins, and tickets to complete the look. 

I took the chipboard pieces and painted them a lime green and then added streaks of brown.  Once they dried I used Rock Candy Crackle paint.  Then added the pink and brown ribbon with another little bird.  I painted the word create and used a fine tip marker to outline around it.   Then added all the other little goodies like the heart, button, and flowers.  I was given the string of pearls so I decided to add that piece to the top which gives me a way to hang the birdhouse up!

 On the back I cut the doily and glued it on, added the half circle chipboard pieces, and then the little bird, flowers, and the cute little tree.
On this I added the chipboards, ribbons, buttons, ticket, heart, flower, and the word art.  

This challenge was a pleasure to complete.  It started off slow but I rather like the outcome!
