My LIttle Princess

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today for a Mother's Day inspiration project featuring Petaloo and Quick Quotes.  I don't know about all of you, but I tend to make projects for other people and never for myself.....that being said I wanted to created something for me for Mother's Day!!  I created a layout of my not so little girl!!  She will be off to college in the fall so I made a layout with one of her Senior pictures.  I don't have the shadow box yet, but i'm going to grab one and then place this in our living room!
Here is the completed layout (minus the shadow box). I'm loving this collection from Quick Quotes Gypsy Road.  This line goes perfect with the photo.  I love the brick pattern paper and cut it out around the edges for a different look

Now for a couple of close ups.

You can see in the picture below how the Petaloo Burlap Wild Sunflowers look amazing around all of the Quick Quotes embellishments and helps to bring out the color in the lined pattern paper I used as the base!

Journey Layout} Teaming up with Petaloo & Marion Smith

Hello everyone, Stacy here with you today!!  I'm totally loving the Marion Smith products that she shared with us to create that up with Petaloo goodies and you can't go wrong!
It's crunch time for me in trying to get my daughters high school book complete before the graduation party and Marion's Timekeeper collection was perfect for one of her Senior pictures.

Here are a couple of close ups of the amazing Petaloo flowers and trims. You can see that I did alot of cutting images from this collection out to use as embelishments on the layout and popped them up to add different dimension to the layout.  I added some of the Petaloo Cream trim along the bottom of the photo, and did a little punch action up the side of the cream paper under the photo. Since this was one of her Senior photos I actually saved the "Timekeeper" part from the pattern paper which was on the was a perfect word for this layout!!
