My Inspiration***Swirlydoos So Chic June Kit***

 My Grandmother has been my inspiration since I was a small child. She was a seamstress, and I remember sitting at her side for hours while she was sewing at her machine. She is still with us, but I no longer able to sew. The picture was taken a couple of months ago on my last visit to see her. She always has a smile on her beautiful face. She also loves roses and had an incredible garden, so I surrounded her in roses.
 The Swirlydoos June kit has the most beautiful papers and embellies. The colors are incredibly beautiful. all of the add ons add so much more to the main kit and always coordinate beautifully.
You can visit the Swirlydoos Gallery to see more inspirational layouts from the kit. 

One of my new purchases is the leafy vine die from CottageCutz. It is wonderful!!! I diecut them from the kit paper and sprayed a little Glimmer Mist to give them a slight tint. Then wrinkle distressed them slightly for dimension.

 I created a butterfly file to match this specific paper in mind. You can grab your file HERE at Swirlydoos. I printed this size up on a 5 x 7 white piece of card stock.

Here is another closeup of the flowers. And I adore the Teresa Collins photo corner embellies. The detail is so beautiful on them.

The gorgeous  KaiserCraft paper that are in the add on flower kit are among my favorite. and the sweet lavender Prima flowers add a wonderful touch of color.

I created my own letter file in Photoshop, cut them apart, and inked them for my title.
