This month's Limited Edition kit features not only the beautiful, warm, rich tones of Basic Grey's Curio collection, but has several matching pages thrown in from DCWV Mariposa as well. This page featuring my niece Paige emphasizes the romance of the collection, but I also took it a more masculine direction with a photo of my two oldest sons in the page title "Brothers." The papers also lend themselves to lots of fussy cutting, like the bird and leaves on this page, although there are plenty of embellishments in this gorgeous kit, including the Prima flowers you see here.
The photo on this page is of my on my 40th birthday. The handkerchief is a family heirloom of sorts. My grandmother gave it to my mother to carry on her walk down the isle when she married my dad, and my mom gave it to me to carry on my wedding day. Since I don't have a daughter, I am saving this page to give to my oldest grand daughter on her wedding day.
The flowers are handmade using the water distress method and the butterfly is cut from the patterned paper.
This page features my beautiful future daughter-in-law, Astrid.
First tape your pattern onto the page where you want your swirl using originally repositionable adhesives.
Than poke holes in the page following the taped on pattern. Remove the pattern and apply the puffy glue.
