Adorable Rhiannon

Ooh, I am so excited! I made a scrapbook page! It's been forever since I have had a chance to scrap, and the bug has officially bitten me again. Not that I don't always have the "itch," but now I really wanna play with my thousands of photos! I used one of my all time favorite photos of Rhiannon, the photo was taken in September of 2009, when she was almost 9 months old. And she's wearing one of my most favorite shirts that she's ever had.

Look at that face!!! It's that little smile that makes every little tantrum, late night, and unfinished dinners worth it. This little smile makes my heart melt. My 12x12 layout has a lot of fun little details. I had such a good time getting inky. It's been far too long...

See that pretty border? I made it using Clear Snap's Design Adhesive and glitter. The pretty Design Adhesive goes on like a dream...then you just shake on your glitter and voila! Easy as 1-2-3! I love this stuff! I also broke out my beloved Crafter's Workshop Mini Punchinella stencil and Dusty Plum ink (also from Clear Snap/Colorbox) and went to town. My edges are inked, distressed and stapled. And even though there is a ton of pink...I managed to get in some fabulous black glitter cardstock (Martha Stewart), so I kept the page very Alison.

Here's a close up of some of my details. Pretty stuff, right?

The title is from Tattered Angles and Heidi Swapp. I brushed on some Glimmer Mist because every single one of my mists that coordinated with this page are clogged! I am a bit miffed about this. But, I kept it quite brushy on the title, so at least you can see some of the original color.
Please feel free to click on any of the photos to see it bigger. You'll see more of the embellishments I've used! Hopefully, I will get to scrapbook a bit more soon. Like, within a week rather than within the next 6 months. Fingers crossed! I really need to fill up my albums! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

What a beautiful page! I love all of your details. I especially liked that you used staples on such a pretty page.:) And your little sweetie is just as cute as she can be!

She's adorable. Great photo. I also love the use of the Punchinella stencils and the way you layered the paper strips.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
