And I will bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moths.

A little winter fun

I have hardly been scrappin lately, not that it's a scrappers block, just don't seem to make time for it here in the last month. But last night I was DETERMINED to create a layout. Here's my daughter Nicole playing in the snow in our front yard, photo was taken in January of this yr. School had been cancelled as a snow day, we only got about 3 inches, but you know what thats 3 inches to play in! She had a blast!

All the paper used on this layout are from the beautiful My Minds Eye 29th St. Market "Adorable" collection.

Did alittle sewing on the corners. Also I distressed and stickled all edges of the blue paper. Covered all chipboard snowflakes with baby blue loose glitter. Love that stuff!

I wanted the title to stand out, didn't want it to match perfectly, therefore I glimmer misted it w/ one of my faves, Graphite. So pretty and shimmery.

So, ever come across the problem that you don't have matching pearls? Use 3-d fabric paint! To get the rounded effect instead of pointy drops, once you have made your round "pearl", don't bring up your bottle, just circle your tip around your "pearl" and it'll round off the top!

Hope you all had a great day!
