First a little card to put you in the holiday spirit...are you feeling it yet? I am just getting into the mood after purchasing some of my family gifts...still have the hubby and DD to shop for but it's nice to get the majority of the family's stuff done.
Okay onto the Layouts I'm trying to catch up on posting these so I can get them into my albums.
This first one is DD playing in the park on a warm evening back in September...I love that her free spirit shows in these pictures! I pretty much followed the sketch on this one...it's from Book Six. I did however add some word stickers (that I love!) to it. I probably would have stitched that circle but it stood out pretty good do to the contrast. I may go back and do it anyway...a girl has a right to change her mind after all! I did add stitching to the Title and stickles too! There is journaling on the back of the tag telling DD how much fun Daddy and I had with her and the date.
Next up is DD in her Halloween costume ...entitled "Tinkerbell" :) I made the title and backed it with double sided tape and then put the back on and then applied glitter to the top and then rubbed it in. I further embellished with some Somerset 3D stickers. This Layout is from the August 2010 free downloadable sketch you can find on Ali's blog http://allisonrdavis.blogspot.com/ you can find it on the right hand side under downloads (Printable sketches)
I changed up the two smaller pics on the top left and the bottom right and put in a 5X3.5" pic in each of those two spots, I also left off the strips of paper on the left side of the LO and substituted them with a nice Zva rhinestones which might be hard to see in my pic (click on the picture of the LO to enlarge) but I wanted to add to the "Pixie Hollow" feel like a forest. I also added a little punched border to give it a more feminine feel. I took some perfect pearls and mixed them with water and then took a toothbrush and flicked on spots all over the black Background paper to give the look of fairy dust. I also added some large glitter chunks that fell off the Prima butterfly and some bling! Therefore I wrote my journaling in a metallic gel pen so as to add to and not cover up too much of the effect. I added a quote from her Tinkerbell book "Always follow your dreams" and layered it up a bit too. That is a long description for this LO but I hope you can appreciate all the added little details.
And one more LO using that same sketch...only this time I added a ton of handmade flowers that I made to look like Dandelions, DD picked them all summer long...every time she went out for a walk. And I added one other handmade flower for fun and for contrast.
And I will leave you with that today...I have more to come yet! Thanks for looking!
