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

Shh Baby--IOD

So we're back from our vacation to Georgia and Florida...and let me just ask.."Why in the world did I come back to Prescott, AZ?!" It's hideous here compared to there. HIDEOUS!!! No sugar coating it! We fell in love with St. Augustine, FL, so much beautiful history in that town and as well as newer developments within it. LOVED IT! ;)

So before we left, I created this layout, just didn't have time to post it with all the chaos of packing. So here I am now sharing it with you.

It features the IOD "Lullaby Boy" paper collection-absolutely stunning papers for baby projects..Love the greens/blues/creams in the line. Who is the little babyboy in the layout you may ask...well he is Elias, Sally Griswolds newest addition to her family. As soon as I saw this photo I knew it'd be perfect to use with her very own papers, as you all know she is one of the creators behind IOD.

Here are a few closeups for you. I've been playing with Dusty Attic quite some bit lately, as I have stocked up on it, their pieces are just so gorgeous! How can you but not fall in love with them. For this piece(Doily #3, DA0481) I painted it with cream acrylic than touched up the edges with olive green ink, then topped it off with some liquid pearls.

Well that is it for now, still need to do massive amounts of laundry and cleaning now that we r home. But I will have some goods to share with you this weekend. =)

Til then, hope everyone has a great night. ♥ Karen
