"Lovely" - Published in the Summer 2017 Issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine!

Hello scrappy friends!  Well, it's certainly been an interesting 4+ months living through a horrific flood from Hurricane Harvey.  I've missed you guys, and I hope I can hop back on the papercrafting saddle more consistently now.  Our home is still not finished, but we are making progress.  All in due time, and we appreciate everyone's prayers and thoughts.  <3

I wanted to share my very favorite layout that was published this past June in the Summer Issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine.  I was truly beyond excited about it!  

I wanted to create a layout with my grandmother as the star.  She was the most beautiful ballerina, and she ended up owning and running her own dance studio that I practically grew up in.  I paired a black and white photo of her with the *stunning* Cocoa Vanilla Studio collection Wild at Heart.

The cut file is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio Colour Me Happy collection, and I also fussycut a lot of flowers to add in.  In addition to paper, enamel dots, and flowers from CVS, I used Thickers from American Crafts, a bow and gold heart from Crate Paper, and vellum and a fringed paper strip reminiscent of a ballerina's tutu.  Here are a few close ups.  

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year's's to a grand 2018!

Chocolate hugs,
