Sisters Layout

Hello friends, thanks for stopping by.  Today I have a layout to share with you - using some of the adorable photos of my girls when they were little.  I have used a Want2Scrap 12 x 12 Overlay and before you say anything - yes I know the layout is pretty full on - but so were they!!! 

These gorgeous little things got all of their fathers Italian blood and lets just say they were passionate - I affectionately referred to them as the 'Mafia Girls'! LOL!

I have placed a 12x12 sheet of pink card stock underneath the These are the Days We Will Always Remember 12x12 Overlay  Next I have cut/embossed the photos using Spellbinders Dies and love the effect when the photo has been lightly sanded. The photo above has been cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and popped up using a layer of thin recycled cardboard and angled across 2 photo spaces using 3Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

The Sisters - Beautiful Script Chipboard Word has been ombre using 3 shades of pink ink and coated using Image irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer.  Once dry it has been glued across the lower portion of the photo with a sticker saying FOREVER below it.

This photo has also been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and lightly sanded.  It has been adhered in the top left opening and slighly tucked under the photo below.  Various sentiment stickers have been used to add a sentiment on the photo and Beautiful Bling Borders - Fancy That! have been adhered above the photo - a little bit like tiaras - but we won't go there! Wink:Wink!

The second photo has had the same process but instead of bling added a row of hearts has been stenciled below it using the Want2Scrap Hearts Stencil and Texture  Paste. Stickers have created the sentiment - I use them as a little 'faux' journaling and love to be eclectic with them.

The beautiful butterflies are from the Shapeabilities Wandering Butterflies Etched Dies Good Vibes Only Collection by Stephanie Low.  The top layers are cut using white card stock and a Little Birdie Crafts Beaded Flower added  to the centre of the butterflies body. Buttons - Round - 30 - Chipboard have been coloured using Imagine Memento Luxe Ink in  Rose Bud. 

Lots of details, lots of embellishments and lots of memories!
