The second page is the first one I did two nights ago. I used a Close to my Heart paper and embellishment kit that I got free awhile ago. I love how the softer colors work with the picture of me as a toddler. I believe the dress I'm wearing in the photo was one of two I wore for my Great Grandma's wedding. She choose one dressed and her Husband to be My great Grandpa Jake choose the other.
The last page is the one I did yesterday I used the new Grace collection from Close to my heart. I paired it with some prima flowers, making memories brads, and American Craft Thickers that I recolored with Close to my heart Twilight ink to match the pages. I had fun doing something a little different and I am happy with the out come. Pin It Now!
A women that I have only gotten to meet a couple of times Marilyn made me think today. She asked a simple question "What is an angel? What does that mean to you?" Her defination was spot on for me "To me, an angel, is someone who is kind to people, caring, and warm with a keen sense of humor. Someone we can trust, who has good character and a solid value system who treasures family and friends, loves animals, cares about the environment, enjoys helping people in need." and it got me thinking I don't say thank you to my friends/angels enough so today I want to public say thank you to my friends your are truely my angels you have such kind words for me, have give me confinence, and gave me a profound belief in myself and my own art. I have always wanted to create in some way and settled with scrapbook (which I LOVE), but didn't feel that I was an "Artist" until last year when I was pushed by a very special angel to the Vintage Room. So a big THANK YOU!!!
