Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Precious Memories (SOUS Challenge)

Hello everyone on this super saturday....I did another sketch at SOUS...I just love this challenges, so inspiring...when I saw this I thought this would be a cute layout with my dd on her 1st day of preschool..she was so precious with her new clothes, lunch box, and her new bookbag...she is only 4 but I just love these memories of her...come check out the blog at ....

I used George for the circle behind all the flowers (can't really see it but it is there...cut @ 7 1/4"...

The swirls are from Home Decor cut @ 3" and (1 swirl) from GS cart cut at 2"

I used WIMG for the flowers (daisies) cut once at 3 1/2", 3 1/4" and 3" (hot pink and light pink) layered them all..used sandy's technique...where you score each petal and then curl them with a pencil or your finger..I used my finger...pop dotted some of them and then used glue dots for the rest which gave a 3d this...Thanks to sandy for the inspiration and technique...keep them coming...always love to learn...

then I cut flowers again this time twice at 3", 2 3/4", and 2 1/2"... also in hot pink and light pink with brads that have sayings "Flowers" and "Happy"....

I used WIMG for the smaller flowers (blue and white) cut twice at 2 1/2", 2 3/4", 2 1/4" and then added a jeweled brad...

I used GS cart for the journaling tag...image10 = icon and blackout icon cut @ 3"

also used gs cart for the title PRECIOUS cut @ 2" doodled on it.

then Memories (jumbled) cut @ 1 1/4" and cut a piece of pink paper around it to make it stand out , doodled.

Used Home Decor for the butterflies cut @ 1 1/4", doodled on them, and also pop dotted to give 3d look...I used fiskars border punch for the 2 1/2" patterned paper on the side...I think that is all...Thanks again for this challenge...and Becky I just love what you come up with!
