The tiny vines are a Sizzix Sizzlets die.
I tore and folded back the corner, laced some eyelets and tucked some flowers in the corner.
The butterflies can be found at Swirlydoos. I create files for every kit. I will post a super fast tutorial on Friday on how I bling them out. I left the bird cage natural as I love the look of the wood.
I did a newborn photoshoot a couple of months ago and this is one of the photo's. Little Abigail was a dream to work with. She looks like a bug snug in a rug. I couldn't resist the title.
I used my Alterations Tattered Banners for the title and created a letter file in Photoshop for the tiny letters. You can download the letters at the end of this post. I printed them on a 3.5 x 5 inch piece of card stock to get the smaller letters.
Once again I left the birdcage natural. I layered some of the flowers from the main kit and the add on flower kit to create some of the flowers.
Just a closeup of the flowers.
Krissy accidentally switched the vines for the DT and subscribers kit last month, so this vine was in last months kit for the subscribers, and we got the vine that the subscribers are getting in this kit. No problems though, as both are beautiful, blue and match perfectly!!
My daughter will be graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Academy of Culinary Arts in a couple of months. Then she will start her 12 week externship. We are all very excited. She has had a worldwind life these last 2 years. From Portland Oregon, Vancouver Washington to landing a job at Disney World in Orlando Florida. Some ups and downs, some heartache and heartbreak, but she rose above it all. She works days at The Rose and Crown in Epcot, and goes to school afterward. She tells me she is always in uniform. The chef coat never comes off. Thus the title and theme of this next LO. And let me tell ya!! This girl can cook!!! There is always a gourmet dinner when she comes home to visit. She is only 2 hours away, and we love having her back in Florida!
This is my interpretation for February's SwirlyHues Challenge posted above.
The flowers are from my Swirly Hibiscus Tutorial. I added a Prima flower in the middle.
I adorned my Alterations dress form with lace and bling from the kit. Then I added the beautiful Melissa Frances resin wings to symbolize flight from the past. Gabrielle has really grown since she left home for college. She really did grow wings.
Once again I printed up the tiny letters on a piece of scrap patterned paper to create the title.
