I love Jenni Bolen's papers and bingo cards with Making Memories' Valentine's Day embellies.
I love details... on this layout I created some splatters here and there of fluffed snow.

Happiness...Home For Christmas 2009. My father-in-law took me out on a Jeep off-road experience. I love to find adventure in the simple pleasures of life. This afternoon spent with my Dad was a dream come true. I loved every minute of it!
This stamped wooden garden stake was given to me by Jen years ago - really! Years ago. I have had it sitting on my scrap desk, in my pencil holder, ever since. I've just been waiting to place it onto the perfect layout.
I hand stitched the swirl using a Bazzill chipboard as my guide.
The vintage glass buttons were also little treasures I had been holding onto.
Other fun techniques included:
Cuttlebug embossing folder on pattered paper as well as my chipboard title by Michael's Crafts (sweet $1 bargain). Spraying my Prima paper flower with multiple layers of Maya Road and Smooch paint sprays.
Adding a vintage silk leaf to the flower. Making Memories' Vintage line has the cutest plastic flowers which worked well along with clear beads. Recycled tissue from a Christmas present created the perfect border and so did some packaging for matting the photo.
Some news... I was so thrilled my card was chosen by Patter Cross to be featured in an article at Scrapbook.com. Please check it out!
