The Swirlydoos April kit is out. "Park Avenue". It is wonderful!!! I am not to good with keeping flowers "out" of my LO's, and when I decided to do a LO of my husband, I was stumped...No Flowers???!!! Noooooo..I had to, so there went my quest to develop Manly Flowers... Any such thing??? Well you be the judge. I did lots of sewing also and distressing to grunge it up a bit. I used my TH distresser wheel like a mad woman!! The papers are Robin's Nest Love is in the air - Embrace Life line, and some card stock from the add on card stock pack.
I have also been doing a lot of sewing on my LO's lately. Inspired by all of the baby LO's in the gallery lately, I had to do one also...The baby is precious Alex..His mommy didnt mind me sharing his picture for this LO. It was a newborn photoshoot I did a couple of months ago. The butterflies I shared with you over at Swirlydoos and the back round paper was hand cut from paper with a template I created using Basic Greys diecut shaped paper. Then with SCAL, I was able to create all different sizes. It will be sooo easy to cut with my Cricut Expression. This is my new favorite shape at the moment!! I cut the title with my Cricut and hand cut the vines I also shared over at Swirlydoos. My sewing machine has been working overtime lately. Inspired by Primas's stitched papers.
A bathroom self portrait!!! LOL...I did Glimmer misting to the flowers and butterflies,created their bodies of crystal beads and jewelry wire, hand cut the vines and did my own Faux swirls with 3D puffy paint. Used Gabriellep's paper ruffle technique. My 3 rules in life...Live, Laugh, and Love...
This page was done using Beggahuna's Park Avenue sketch for the April Kit kit. The photo is my sister Laurie who is a first time grandmother and loving every precious moment of it!! She loooves her little Nikki. Did some sewing on the page and the butterflies are some that I shared over at Swirlydoos. Dressed the Prima flowers with Stickles Rock Candy, Shimmerz paint and Martha Stewart micro beads.
