Just a quick post

cause we are getting company over.

It is Kelly her birthday today, so
busy busy!!!! She is already 20 years
old. mennn time goes by, in a blink.

I want to share my latest page.

I created this page for the
something old / something new
challenge, over at MCS.
And yes... I like that topic
since we are used too collect stuff
and buy in bulk. lol
here it is:

and some close ups:

The picture I used is an older picture
of Ashley. I guess she was about 14 years
old. She is 17 now. Gosh.. they grow
so fast!!! This picture is one of my
favourite pictures of her.

I had these 7 Gypsies paper laying
around for quit some time now, and
also the piece of canvas is an older
one from Prima. (got printed words on it)
I flipped it over and added a layer
Gesso to it, to create even more texture.
then I tore, my paper and I made some
cuts around the silhouette of the bird,
cause I wanted to stand out a little.
I placed pop dots underneath.
I rubbed that little birdie with
Rock Candy Distress stickles to alter
it a bit, and to add texture.
Cut some twine in pieces and colored it
with Distress ink. (walnut stain)
then glued it down as a branch.
In the lower left corner, I used
Rock Candy Distress stickles and
I even sprinkled some Diamond Dust over it.
Too bad it doesn't show very much in the picture.
I cut the little butterfly out of the paper
and added Rock Candy Distress stickles to
it wings. sprinkled a little glitter over it.
The flower in the bottom right corner
(it is an older one from Prima)
I cut it apart and cut the petals a little smaller.
Some of the stamens came of and I took 2 of them
to glue them down to the back of the butterfly,
as antenna. Gave the butterfly a body using some
string of pearls. The flower in the top left corner,
comes from a faux flower string, it originaly was
a white rose. I rubbed it with Rusty Hinge
Distress ink and spritzed it with water. Put
a little baby rose in the center.
The lace is (I believe) from an older line
of Prima Marketing. For the cluster at the left top
I inked the lace up with Rusty Hinge Distress ink.
The pearl strips on the sides is something I had for
a long time and is from KaiserCraft.
The tiny Alpha stickers ( I have them forever)
are from Making Memories. The bigger letters
were silver glittered letters. Don't know
which brand they are. I painted them with
brown acrylic paint and sanded them
just a little.

For the new stuff... hm let me think
I used my new hot glue gun... does that count??
Oh and also the my new TH tiny attacher.

Hope you all enjoy the weekend,

Sorry I haven't been by in a while hon, I saw this on facebook and didnt realise it had been linked from your blog - lol I am such a ditz sometimes !!! Beautiful colours, I love the little cluster of pretties in the corner, I love how you have made so much from scratch. The photo of Ashley is precious, I hardly recognised her, she has certainly grown up a lot in the last couple of years.

Love ya hon xxx
