Cherish the Memories... 47

Mona Pendleton | Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 11:15 AM | , ,

Hi there! Sooo happy it is Friday ~ I'm looking forward to the weekend ~ how about you? I have a few projects to share today. I scrapped a layout using adorable photos of Meredith from quite a few years ago. While I was enjoying some retail therapy at my LSS, I came across some gorgeous Authentique patterned paper which I used to create both the layout and card shown in this post.
 For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Once Upon A Sketch Challenge:
 I was in need of a Birthday card for a dear blogging friend: Stella Schenkel whom many of you fellow bloggers may know. Stella is such a sweet and creative person. It is my only hope to meet her IRL one day. If you get a chance, please feel free click HERE to visit Stella and wish her a Happy Birthday! I combined    some more of the pretty patterned paper with a gorgeous image and sentiment from the JustRite Stampers Elegant Frames Set:
Just love the shimmer on that beautiful blossom:
That's all for today ~ thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back Sunday with an all new CR84FN Color Challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps for LO: JustRite Stampers Cherish the Memories Nested Sentiments for CARD: Elegant Frames Set
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™ for LO: Fancy TagsVintage Oval Labels Set, for CARD: Labels Ten, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Authentique

Mona, I don't know what I like more - the scrapbook page or the card. In the back of my mind I'm thinking, "is there anything Mona can't do?????" They are both just lovely. Meredith is a real cutie in her "Miss Thing" pose - at least that is what we call it here! Why can't they stay little forever? Sorry - I'm just trying to get through the "teenager" years and missing the old days....

Jen said...

Extraordinary! Mona your layout and card are par excellence! The colors and the flowers both crochet and not are so pretty. The DP just want me to go and find some for my coffers. The JR gorgeousness too! Sigh. Very inspiring indeed! :-)

Hi Mona! This is so so beautiful. I love the colours and your photos. Just fantastic yet again! Thank you for playing along with us. I always look forward to your creations.

P.S. just wanted to let you know that the link that OUAS doesnt link direct back here. When I click on your entry it just takes me to the OUAS blog rather than your blog. Just letting you know :o)
