Created with the new Sept. Scraps of Elegance Kit, Nostalgia. The features the wonderful Pion Design papers, Flourish with a Bling, and Renea Harrissons handcrafted butterfly embellishments. This is a gorgeous kit, dripping with softness and elegance for certain.
Recently my husband and I went on a boat tour of the Everglades. When we reached the tour site, no one else showed up for the tour. The guide said that he was happy to take just the two of us out since we had already paid and he was already there at the boat. These are the sweet romantic times that I will remember with my husband well into my old age (I hope).
So off we went - the destination was a small, very small island that had some great beachy shelling opportunities. I found a few large shells and was thrilled. My project has one of the shells on it. I loved the fact that this shell was really rather imperfect. My husband's only comment on my find..."It's missing a bit Jen. Like most of the shell".
hahahahahaha silly man. That's why I love it.
Now for the ratty frame. My mom had a yard sale a few years back and I saw the broken frame in her garbage can. This was a total garbage pick - yes, as in plucking from the garbage can and storing in my basement until further notice. I did have to hide it in my basement so that husband did not also determine this to be a ratty broken frame and toss in the out in our garbage.
So it's been hidden in our basement for a few years waiting...waiting.....waiting for these Pion papers to salvage and re-purpose it's ratty framed self.
I used the Pion Design papers and various elements from the kit to recreate my secluded beach scene from our wonderful and romantic vacation.
I also used the Dusty Attic Mini Scrolls DA0685 and covered with Stampendous Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel.
