My Beautiful Girl 52

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 1:50 AM | , , ,


 Hi there! We are still experiencing beautiful weather here in Phoenix so I've been out hiking and biking. I really don't care for the cold especially when it makes my toes and fingertips go numb when riding. Anyways, I had some time to play so I made a layout and a card to share. I've been having fun, playing with the new digital Pink Paislee Family Matters Paper Pack. For the layout, I kept the original 12" x 12" size and printed on 8 1/5" x 11" paper. That is my sweet sister Tina in the photo and the photo was taken about 52 years ago! Time sure flies! I am going to put this layout in a shadowbox type frame and give it to my sister as a gift :) She looks so sweet!
A crafty girl can NEVER have TOO many butterflies, right? I'm lovin' the Spellbinders Wonderful Wings set that comes with FIVE sets of gorgeous butterflies:
For sketch inspiration, I referred to a fun sketch from My Creative Sketches:
For those of you who prefer card making, I made a card using the same patterned paper EXCEPT, I reduced the size to 50% before printing.
Those beautiful stamped flower image on the left hand side is from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden ~ Impressions Clear Stamps and the sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse Blessed by You set:
Thank you very much for visiting today! I hope you may feel inspired to create! Be Sweet!
