I finally got to make another layout! This time using a current picture! This is me and my sons, Sam (on the left) and Dan (recent high school graduate) on the right. The papers are from a new DCWV called The Primrose Stack and it is FULL of beautiful paper including lots of tags that can be cut out to use. The bird and flowers on the lower left I fussy cut out of another page from the stack. The aqua lace is from my stash of about 20-25 years. I used to order from a place called Home-Sew when I sewed and made a lot of crafts using trims and laces. They had really great prices. Not sure if they are even in business anymore.
The white lace under the picture is pretty special to me. I found it in my Mom's sewing machine cabinet, still in its original packaging and unbelievably, from J. C. Penney Co. for $.49!! I added Queen & Co. pearls in Baby Blue to the lace. The metal flowers to the left of the picture are from Momenta at Michael's. I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks to stain them (Pool and Rust).
The beautiful butterflies that I thought matched perfectly are from Reneabouquets on Etsy.com. Thank you Renea!
