"A day at the Detroit Zoo"

It's such a beautiful day today and it reminds me of a good day to visit the zoo. As I was speaking of the zoo, I remembered I never posted my layout of my daughter from the Detroit Zoo field trip a couple years ago.

This layout was created with the February kit from Swirlydoos. I love working with the beautiful Maja papers and all the embellishments from the kit and mediums add on. 

Just a quick post for today. Have a blessed day!

Another Tiffany layout!

Today I am posting another layout created with Swirlydoos Tiffany's Kit. I was inspired by the NSD activity posted by Tracey, Swirlydoos Design Team member. She given a recipe to use while creating our layout. Her recipe was the following:

1. 6 different papers (cardstock is ok)
2. Doily (paper or crochet)
3. Bling or pearls
4. Ribbon or lace
5. Some type of material (tulle,cheesecloth,burlap,etc.)
6. At least 7 flowers
7. A non-scrappy item
8. Gesso
9. Mist
10. Stamping
11. Ink
12. Alpha
13. Butterfly
14. Use a mask or emboss something
15. Chippie

I decided to use a black and white photo of my daughters preschool photos again. I used items from the main kit and the medium add on also. 

Here is how my recipe turned out. 

Have a blessed day!!

Tiffany's Butterfly layout - Swirlydoos

It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to blog due to my current medical conditions. But I am happy to start catching up with a few creations I was able to complete during this time. I would like to display the most recent layout that was created with April Swirlydoos Kit called "Tiffany's".

This kit includes the beautiful  Authentique's "Elegant"paper line, flowers and bling.  For some reason, I wanted the polka dot paper to stand out against the shades of blue. I've added modeling paste with the prima flourish mask to the background. I altered the chipboard with viva decor silver metallic paint and the embossing powder that came in the mediums add on. I've also added different flowers and embellies from previous kits. 

This is a photo of my daughter after the first day of preschool at age 3. 

Thank you for taking the time to review my post today!
