Outer Banks, NC 2008
*************PAGES IN TIME MAY KIT************
The paper, lace, bingo card and book flower (the one with text on it) are all from my May Kit from Pages In Time. It features the Basic Grey Capella line of papers. They are really very pretty. Thanks Karen for putting together such a nice kit!!
The picture is from 2008 when we went on a family reunion/vacation to the Outer Banks in NC. This is one of my favorite photos from this trip. My DD (in front) and her cousin from Florida couldn't wait to get to the beach and I snapped this while they were running toward the beach. We went in March and as you can see from the pic the weather was perfect for us and a little chilly for the family from Florida. When we left it was below zero with wind chill and snowing like mad. When we got to NC it was in the 60's and 70's and we were loving it!!!
This is one of my first attempts at layering paper. I mainly used "side B" of the papers to get the contrast to work well with the B&W photo. That really pretty chipboard frame is from Dusty Attic. These pieces are hard to get so you can imagine my excitement when a few of them came in the mail the other day. They are really beautiful and paired up with this paper, it is just stunning to look at in person.
I made the paper roses out of card stock using a flower punch. I have a tutorial link on my blog for Gabi's roses. You should check it out and try it for yourself. They are addictive. 3 of the flowers I cut out of gray card stock. I used distress inks and antique brass Glimmer Mist on them to give them a little bit of color. The other 3 I cut using paper from my Once Upon a Time stack. The leaves were cut using an SVG file and my Cricut using manila paper and I used distress ink to color them. Here are some close ups:
