Tiny Dancer

So here goes for my second post. This photo of Tatym at her ballet lesson just begged to be scrapped. The background paper is from a wedding collection but worked well with the lilac in her tutu and gave a bit of a princess feel to the page. I made the lilac/blue flowers using a tutorial I found on Ideas for Scrapbooking. The artist is Vicky Alberto and she asked that anyone using her tutorials give her credit so this is acknowledgement of her design. I have also made some flowers based on tutorials I found at Such a Pretty Mess. The artist, Gabrielle Pollacco is very talented and I have taken inspiration from her work. Thanks Rita for sharing this site. I bought the little white flowers at Walmart. The silver bow is from some left over Christmas wrappings. I used a tutorial from Swirlydoos for the decorative circle. It's made with a MS punch. The butterfly is also a MS punch. I made a couple of them in different cardstock and then layered them. The pearls and blue bamboo paper is from Paper  Trails. They are very helpful there is anyone needs some advice, encouragement or ideas. I used Diamond Dust to glitter the page and flowers up a bit. I am a real sparkle fan an use a lot of stickles or other bling on my work. I have included some closeup pictures for the details. Thanks to Jenn & Dustin for inviting us to ballet lessons so I could take the pictures. A bit of the stand shows in the top picture so sorry about that. I will get better at this. Thanks for having a peek at my site. Enjoy!!

Our Little Strawberry

My daughter brought over her new baby and this great little baby strawberry outfit she bought on an etsy site. I didn't intend to share it when I first made it so I don't have the names of any of the products I used. The papers were quite popular so I am sure some people will recognize them. I made the strawberries with my cricut and some stickles glitter. The butterfly is a MS punch. I bought the vine at Walmart and the crystals and tiny red metal roses at Papertrails in Saskatoon. They are a very friendly and knowledgeable group and are probably responsible for my continuing with this hobby/art. This is my first post so I am sure I will get better at taking some pictures of my work so they are easier to see.
