Me and my DGD, Helen Grace in March 2008. The papers are BG Obscure. I cut a half-circle and then punched an edge strip with a Fiskars punch. I cut each scallop from the strip then placed them around the edge of the circle. The title letters are chipboard that I painted white and covered with crystal lacquer for a high gloss. I added pink and white 3D paint dots to the zigzag edge and doodled a stitched line. The pink scallop was cut with a 12" QK die and highlighted in white and then I added more 3D paint. The flowers are all made with the retro flower punches. I punched the blooms from vellum, added a little stickles to the edges, then curled the edges under. I added bling for my centers. The bling in the big flower was a clear crystal that I "painted" with my alcohol inks. Journaling is tucked behind the photos and reads:
Spending time with you is always fun. You have such a lively imagination. You could play with a tea set for hours! Sometimes, when it's just you and me, we do exactly that! You love to be my “waitress” and take my order, and you always ask, “Do you want sweet tea?” You are such a sweet little girl, and I love you very much. I hope when you get older that you remember the fun times we've had together.
