Searching for Vintage - Scrapbook Layout

!Out for publication   Here's a layout I made for Remember When Scrapbooking Store featuring paper from the Prima Shabby Chic Collection and Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist.

I used Glimmer Mist on a lot of the embellishments on this layout.  I took a doily that was left over from Valentine's Day and sprayed it with Arctic Blue Glimmer Mist.  I also sprayed shipping tags from the office supply store with Glimmer Mist, crinkled them up and inked the edges to give it an old warn look.  I even sprayed the lace to make it look old.

Yes, I did do some fussy cutting around the bird and some of the flowers so that I could tuck my photo in...I used my Fiskars Fingertip Craft Knife...I love that thing!  -Makes cutting SO much easier!!

Whirlwind Week

My brother & niece came out for a visit last week.  It was so great to see them both & to hang out together.  We took my niece to Disneyland for the first time...she was in awe!  Meeting the Princesses and Alice totally made her day.  Alice rode the carousel with her...which left her speechless...seriously...a speechless 3 yr old...girl!!  -That NEVER happens!





We also went to the Aquarium of the Pacific where we petted sharks and rays.  My niece also got to feed the lorikeets nectar, which she loved.  -So brave!!



New Blog Banner!

Blog button1  After almost 5 years of blogging I've finally gotten around to updating my blog banner!  I seriously can't believe it took me that long to get to it since I've been wanting to do it for forever now!!  -Well, at least that can get checked off the to-do list!  :)
