One Love

It's been so long since I did a layout, this one took forever. I like it though...

The great sketch is from Sketches in Thyme.....paper is DCWV 2009 Spring collection.....and the Cricut cuts are from Sweethearts and New Arrival. Rhinestones.....ribbons......and pictures of me and my sweetheart on vacation in Jamaica finish it off.

Splish Splash!

This week is the 1 year Anniversary at Practical Scrappers. I had the joy of serving 2 terms on their design team, and it was so much fun! That is a great group of girls, and the talent there is amazing. To celebrate, they asked all their former team members to create a special project based on "1". I chose a 1 photograph layout.

The picture is printed at 8 x 10, trimmed a little- kind of randomly. The paper is from DCWV Spring 2009 collection.......cut a rectangle 7 x 10, one 4 x 5, and one in embossed yellow cardstock(it's snow dots...but the flowers match the paper, and you don't notice the occasional flake) cut at 3 x 5. The bottom border is from that collection too....just cut and added some "blingy" red gems. The sharks are from Life's a Beach.....cut on border at 3 1/2"....I cut 2....backed the eyes with white paper....added silver metallic ink....added some white Jelly Roll details....and some black eyes. Layered the border up with pop dots. The sentiment is from H2O...cut twice (1 yellow, 1 red stripes) at 4 1/2" and glued them in an offset pattern after I doodled dots on the yellow. Added some Fiskars ZingZ splashes here and there....and finished it off with a pop dotted flower, cut from the DCWV paper.
