Sometimes all the planning in the world doesn't prepare you for a 4 year old at a wedding! But, that's ok because the sentiment says it all! Life really doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful!
This page was inspired by a few challenges:
Color My Heart: White Daisy, Archival Black, Indian Corn Blue and Silver
Pile It On: Hearts and/or Flowers
Sentimental Sundays: Anything Goes opt New Beginnings (wedding)
613 Avenue: Anything Goes

The homemade stencil was cut from Pretty Pennants.
|I made my embellishments, printed the pics, and|
laid it out onto the card stocks.

stamping, and made adjustments. As you can see
from the final projects, I never stick to the

The blue flowers were actually used in the

my stash. The gem is also CTMH along with the silver

This layout had a couple of "new to me" techniques. The floral border on the blue was done by stenciling a tone on tone. I've done this before, but I've not done so much of it on one piece to achieve a border. I also did something a little different on the white page. I stamped the flowers from In the Background stamp with Daisy White Ink. Then I smudged over it with silver pigment ink. This is a technique I want to experiment with further. I liked parts of it, but other parts got a little darker than I may have originally intended. I'm always learning; that's what is so fun about this for me. Sometimes when crafting, I need to remember the sentiment on this page! ; )
Thanks for coming by today!
