She Shines.....

Hello Lovely Friends and happy Friday!

We are lucky enough to have another beautiful paper company sponsor the Colour Room this month and the DT were all treated to some amazing paper from Pion Designs.  They really lend themselves to pretty, feminine and delicate pages... although I'm sure I could manage to grunge it up too if I tried!  :)  For this layout though, the photo of my Claire Bear from a few years ago, with wild hair streaming around her face, caught beautifully in the sunlight, I just had to go with pretty, with a dash of whimsy.

{she shines}


Fussy cutting (again)... I seem to be having a real run on that lately.  Dusty Attic (again) ... because I just love it!  Muslin, buttons, glimmermist and flowers.... because I can't help it!  :))

I heat embossed the DA ornate frame (DA0074) and the stamped with a script stamp while still molten.  I inked the stamp with brown ink first however it still didn't stand out enough for me, so I sprayed some latte glimmermist on my finger and just sort of rubbed it into the stamped impression as well.

The blue blossoms in amongst all that haberdashery is fussy cut from the Pion papers too

A bit quirky and lop sided, but I think that's my favourite part!  lol

Thanks for popping in... gotta run.  The kids have got a trillion things on this weekend, so I don't see much scrappy joy in my immediate future... and I've got soooo much to do!  Have a fantastic weekend lovelies!

Cheers,

Jules
