First, I want to say a big THANK YOU to Sheila and Cindy! You both are so sweet! And so creative!!! Dang, I just went to your blogs and wow! some amazing work that I need to come back and study closer! This weekend I will get that award up and do my assignment, I promise. :)
I've been so busy! I've been taking classes and teaching classes at my local store, Scrapaganza. Doing some commission work and trying to balance all that with spending time with the family. 3 year olds are amazingly wonderful and exhausting. I have so much fun with my son that I don't want to waste my opportunities to be with him. I've walked away from my scrap table a few times this week when he asked me to. (and the computer is at my table so that meant very little computer time too!)
Stuck on You Sketches. :) I also used one of my new ironwork files (see post below) for the circle border. The picture is from my husband's and my wedding. Our wedding was themed, since we both enjoy renaissance faires and such, and back then I was very involved in belly dancing, so we combined a lot of our favorite things into our wedding, and for me one of them was to have full "Bridal" henna applied to hands, arms, legs and feet! So you can see my hand has henna decorations on it. Here are the details of the layout:
Kaiser printed paper - Sakura Park "Ukon"
Making Memories - Vintage Pearl Love Notes
Reminisce - black glitter paper
Cardstock - French Vanilla
Vellum - silver
Perfect Pearls "Forever Red" and "Green Patina"
I used several Cricut cartridges:
Home Accents - part of the round border
Don Juan - part of the round border
Mother's Day 2010 - 6 petal flower, vine, title frame
Gypsy Font - hearts for butterfly and hearts
Gypsy Wanderings - title
The background fleur-de-lis circle border was created on my Gypsy with Home Accents and Don Juan, if you have the gypsy or Design Studio, you can download this cut file (see post below) to your own machine if you have the cartridges. The butterflies were also created on my Gypsy with Gypsy font by welding several ornate hearts together with an oval.
The roses were made by cutting out a 6 petaled flower 3 times and following the instructions from Tim Holtz' blog. I used Perfect Pearls and Perfect Medium and a water pen to color the petals and the vellum vine.
Thanks for looking! and thank you to everyone who has left comments, I really appreciate it!
