Life Is Sweet

Well…I have to say I really love these papers which were given to me by The Crafty Scrapper Design Team.  Most of all I really love this sweet little photo of my
granddaughter Kenzie.  I think she looks so sweet and it makes me smile!
These papers are from BoBunny – Doubledot Collection; Pink Paislee – Hello Sunshine Collection; and Authentique – Faith Collection.They all work well together.
I distressed the papers and on one, I used a scalloped blade and inked.the edges.  I painted the chipboard piece with Gesso and then added green and brown.  I used
Perfect Pearls to make the buds.  I added lots of butterflies and used
all the beautiful flowers that were given to me.
Please enjoy the close ups below.

Good Times

Hello!  This is Ginger here with my newest layout “Good Times.  I loved this paper by Doodle Bug, Pebbles, and Authentique.  It was perfect for this photo of my oldest grandson Logan.  He had just finished up his normal baseball season and he was selected to play in the All Star Games!
I distressed the papers and then cut out my own banners and inked them with Tim Holtz distressed ink Vintage Photo.  I was also given this cute blue ribbon with stars.  I had in my stash the hinges and I used embossing power to turn these into a gold color.  I then added mini pearls to them.  I was also given the small squares and circles and I added alphabet to spell out Logan.  That was after I painted them.  I then took flowers from Petaloo and added them to the top right corner.  I was also given the pinwheels and a small chipboard piece that had an arrow on it which I painted it and then added wooden bats.  Last but not least was this cute frame that I found.  I painted it and then added stickles.
Please see below the close ups!
This was a very easy layout to make but I loved the way it turned out!

I love these two photos.  My Dad, Mom, and me in 1952 while we were vacationing in Galveston, Texas.  My dad passed away four years ago and my mom has Alzhiemer's Disease.

I found this lovely paper and away went my imagination.

I cut out the blue paper and added ink and little embellishments to the outside.  I took yellow paper and used a circle cutter by Martha Stewart.  I made the banners and then printed up the wording!

Please see close ups!

Here you can read the quote:
Family Ties are precious things, Woven through the years, 
Of memories of togetherness, of laughter, love and tears.

Here is a close up of the photo of me and mom!  Look at the car in the background!  Priceless!

The beautiful flowers with mesh and a cute bow.

Last but NOT least is me and my dad.  I miss him terribly!

Thanks again for looking!
