124 - My Sweet Princess - Sparkle

This is my sweet granddaughter Kenzie and yes she is wearing little wings.  I love angels and I thought this photo would be perfect for a challenge at CSI.  I have been looking at their challenges for over a year and finally decided I would give it a try.  


I used all five colors that they requested, plus as my evidence I used butterflies, glitter, and flowers.  The testimony is the word Sparkle.
I used so many details in this layout.  
Modeling Paste, spray ink, distress ink, gell beads, embossing, etc. etc on this layout.

Thank you so much for looking and I look forward to any comment.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Hello, it is Ginger here today with my sweet little layout! I thought the papers "Pebbles - Special Delivery Collection" would go perfectly with this photo.  I inked, misted, painted, and added lots of flowers.  

I decided to print up his photo in color and black/white.  You can see he was so tiny they placed in inside a crochet hat and then in another hat.  He was just a few weeks old.  Now he is almost 3!
How time does fly.  I just  love my grandkids!

These little stars were all white.  On the corner stars I used a distress spray by Tim Holtz.  On the other little stars I used distress ink by Tim Holtz and then added a small pearl and a crystal.  On the words I used letters and then took a fine tip pen to go around each letter.  On the corners I used an eyelet
 and curled up the paper and used string to tie it down.

I found in this kit a small balloon and bow!  I put clear little stones on the balloon and then took string and tied it to the balloon.  I also added a stone to the bow.  I was given all these beautiful little flowers as well!

I was given this beautiful flourish which I painted blue and after it was dry I took white stamp and placed it on several locations.

Thank you so much for taking a peek.  This was such a sweet layout to make.  Please stop by The Crafty Scrapper to see this layout!  It is the most wonderful scrapbook store in Texas!

Hello!  It is Ginger here today with my layout for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper!
I love this sweet photo of my granddaughter Paityn.  It goes so well with the lovely paper by Crate Paper -  Oh Darling Collection. 
I distressed, inked, added modeling paste, spray and then added color to the modeling paste.
I used modeling paste and then added green stickles and used a fine tip marker to make it stand out more.  I also outlined the word Cutie!
I used ink spray, inked the little girl, added flowers and leaves by Sizzix.
I used ribbon, flowers, made the little tags and secured them with cute brads.  Last but not least I painted this wooden piece and wrote Paityn!
Thank you for taking the time to look at this layout.  Please visit The Crafty Scrapper!

On The Farm

I love this photo of my son Chris with this wife Ashley, daughter Kenzie and their son Colby.  They have a miniature horse named Midnight.  They keep their little horse here at this stable.  It is within walking distance of my home.  Therefore if they are not able to feed the horse Pawpaw and I will make sure it is taken care of quickly.  There are alot of horses that stay there and such a great place for the kids to ride and just play with all the animals.

I loved the papers that was given to me for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.  The papers American Crafts - Autumn Crisp Collection and Fancy Pants - Timbergrove Collection are so perfect with this photo.

This layout was very easy to create.  I used the various papers and distressed, inked, and added flowers.  I also used a small bow and placed clock hands.
 I added these two clocks, wooden button with ties, flourishes which I painted and then added Glossy Accents.

I used from my stash the banner from BoBunny and added On The Farm then outlined it with a fine tip pen.  I also painted a flourish and used Glossy Accents.
