My Valentine with Sweet Sentiments by Graphic 45

Did you think I had disappeared?  Busy is not even descriptive of what life has been lately.  Grandgirls, DIY remodel on my house, birthdays, etc. and so forth.  Basically I've been making a lot of fun memories.

I have looked back over the last of my layouts I have been creating and seeing where my heart is at this time.  My grandgirls, flowers, chipboard, and a bit of mix media.  It's a personal trend I love. 

The photo is of my my grandgirl Ali near her 1st birthday.

  • Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments paper collection; Prima flowers, bird nest, buttons; Blue Fern Studios chipboard "Sunshine," swirls, butterfly, and key plate; Tim Holtz's Alteration clock, Distress Glitter, Bookplate, Paint Dabber, Distress Ink Vintage Photo and Distress Stain.
  • I have fallen in love with my Gesso.  I painted my chipboard and I'm able to add just about anything to it with out worrying that it will lose the base.  Cool Beans!
  • Sorry about the shadows.  I had only a few minutes to get a photo of the layout and it was it was early in the morning and it cast a shadow. 
 Randomly added Distress Glitter to my butterfly.
 I added a bit of Distress Glitter to the chipboard swirls.
A bit of paint added to the bookplate gives it a aged look.

Well, the South looks like it is going to get hit again with snow and sleet.  Vegetable garden and flower garden will be on hold for a few more days. 

Thanks for visiting D's Paper Studio
