LOC You Make Me Smile

I have another Scrapbook page to share with you today.  I have really enjoyed doing a few pages lately and it sure feels good to see the albums filling up, creating memories for the family.  This layout is of my youngest DD who wakes up smiling - 'Life is for Living!!  My DH took some photos out of frames to update them so I thought I would not leave them lying around the place (as you do!) and this is the result.

I used Layers of Color images, these work with scrapbooking so well, I love the feel they can create.  I have used one of the images from the Garden Borders art stamp set, I love these thistles, they are a bit different from the normal flowers and make it interesting!

I am loving flowers and wings together and just had to use the Beloved Wings set with this gorgeous Prima, once again from Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz)  I have used a Kaiser sentiment instead of a button or embellishment in the centre of the flower.....and how about the gorgeous DP - it is flocked, Laura from Layers of Color sent it to me and I just have to use it on Layouts - I love it!!

Butterflies are a 'must' with feminine Layouts - especially when they are as goreous as this one from the Flutterescent art stamp set.  I have chalked it and popped it's wings up on foam dots, placing it on the Swirl that has been coloured with distressing ink and of course...BLING!!

In the lower corner I have added more Prima' colouring them lightly with Chalks.  The gorgeous silver filagree button has been sent to me by my Mum, it was part of a tin of buttons that belonged to my great-Grandmother, they were very special to Mum growing up and she sent me a few when I started Scrapbooking!!  I have saved them for special projects, like my layouts - I wish you could see it IRL - gorgeous!

You know how it goes, add a bit of this and that until you are happy with the end result! I am hoping that DD2 likes it....my aim is to get together an album each for my kids and then just build from there!

I have been busy with a few projects that I can't show you yet, rest assured that when I am able I will give you the first look!!  A little hint - shhh -Laura from  of Color has been working hard designing some New Releases and we will be ssing them very soon - they are GORGUSS!!  I will SHOUT about it when the time is near!! 

I am hoping for a reasonably early night, I have said enough for now and must pack up and get some much needed sleep!  Thank you for visiting with me, I love it that you come and appreciate each comment that is left for me!  You make my day! God bless you!
