This is a picture of my DD when she was 4. I love this picture so much, it is one of the few that I have an 8x10 of. Too cute! I love how well Glitz and Kaisercraft get along in this kit.
This is for the sketch that came with the kit. This is a photo of my DD and her BFF. This is from 2010. We were at the state fair and it was the hottest day on record. Just my luck. I decided to try my hand at sewing. OY! I am determined to get better, so I have to keep working at it. I'm fairly happy with the result.
My DD's t-shirt says Friends Are Forever, Boys Are Whatever. I echoed that sentiment on my page. I painted the Kaisercraft chippie tower and then used some of the rub ons from the kit to embellish it. I added some more of the white eyelash trim to soften things up and stamped around the outer edge of the circle. Isn't that bird's nest the cutest!!
I have a set of new stamps that I have been dying to use and this was my opportunity. I bought some really whimsical stamps by Dylusions and felt that this striped, swoopy edge was perfect to help frame my picture.
I threw together that large pink flower by using some of the coordinating card stock. I used my newest favorite punch from Martha Stewart and punched out a small strip from the patterned paper for the center. Then I topped it off with a little velvet mini beauty from Petaloo. I created leaves by using a die and pattered paper. I then used a star shaped stamp I have to create the star. I folded it in some placed and then used a stylus to "puff" it up. I wanted a 3-d look to it. I used pop dots behind it to bring it off the page.
I used one of the stamps that came in the embellishment kit, the bird on the branch. I also used the Eiffel Tower and blue flower rub on from the kit. I added one of my own Tim Holtz stamps ad there you have it! I once again made the small leaves from scraps of patterned paper and cut off branches from the Prima branch we received. Love the Petaloo flowers!
