I Love Us...CR84FN69 Week 2 55

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 5, 2013 @ 10:00 PM | , , , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! The weather has been beautiful here, sunny blue skies and temps above 60 degree. Perfect for hiking and biking which Tina and I  did yesterday :) I'm back with another project I created for week 2 of CR84FN69 using the pretty color combo shown below:
 I made this layout featuring a sweet photo of Jerry and April that was taken on this past Mother's Day. I've been so sad, dreading the next few weeks because Jerry has accepted a job in San Francisco and is moving this coming Saturday :( I am really happy for him and know he is only a short distance away BUT those weekly lunch dates will be few and far between. He will be back to visit on his 25th birthday which is February 8th :)
I stamped one of the sweet sentiments from MFT LLD Document It - Off the Chart on a die cut strip made using Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon then layered on top of two die cut pieces made using Die-namics Layered Label Die. I framed the photo using a white washed Blue Fern Studios Leaf Frame.
I applied a combination of Distress ink and Rock Candy to three sprigs of foliage that are included with the Blue Fern Studios Leaf Frame then made various blossoms using the following Die-namics: Die-namics Winter Rose, Die-namics MINI Rolled Roses and Die-namics Royal Rose.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Stuck On U Sketches:
Shown below are the Die-namics that I used on my layout today included in the MFT January release. You can read all about it here: 

In this layout, I used the Blue Fern Studios Leaf Frame.
 Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to stop by the CR84FN blog to see additional beautiful samples from several of the DT members. Hope you join along!
Be Sweet ;)
