some exciting news to share :)

I'm back to designing again!  And I couldn't be happier that after about a year of barely scrapping and just not being that into it, I am back at it and loving it again!

And I am the most happy to share that I am again designing for Michelle at A Million Memories!

To make it even more awesome- she sent me the amazing new Dear Lizzy stuff with some perfectly coordinated embellishments and her unique vintage trims and fabrics.  I've been in heaven!

Here are two of the layouts that I have made- more to come for sure!

The title of this layout and part of the journaling comes from the Jim Croce song, Time in a Bottle.  One of my very favorites.  This layout includes hand stitching, confetti punching and to get the ruffle along the bottom I wet and crumpled up the vellum until it looked like I wanted it to look.  I also added a doilie that I dyed.  Peeking out from the photos is some of the adorable trim that Michelle sent.

This next layout was inspired by the title and title work of THIS amazing layout that I pinned on interest.  The minute I saw it, I knew that I was too inspired to not create a similarly themed layout.  I believe the saying comes from a kids shirt.

Again, I hand stitched on this layout and included a lot of layering.  The little rosette trim is cut from the rosette fabric that Michelle sent me and watercolored to get the color that I wanted for my layout.

I used Dear Lizzy ruffle paper as a mat for my photo and base for my title.  I also included three doilies.  One straight from the package, a hand dyed one and a Martha Stewart shimmer die cut doilie.  Peeking out is more of that adorable trim.

I made the title from mixed fonts and added glossy accents to "dad's lucky" to emphasize it.  I reproduced a similar layered doily look with the cut out sentiment to balance the layout.

Thanks so much for peeking at my blog today and checking out my layouts!
