A "Lively" wedding layout.

 I am amazed at the versatility of the Authentique "Lively" collection! This set of papers, stickers and alphas was perfect for my nephew's wedding pictures. They had their reception at a lodge all decorated with tiny lights, paper chandeliers and candles. The bridesmaids and flower girl wore apple green. I used the sticker from the embellishment sheet that reads " Life itself is the most wonderful fairytale" isn't that the most perfect saying for a wedding!? I  backed the sticker with a small paper doily to accent the lace on the Camille's gown.
Tomorrow I will share a layout going a totally different direction!

November's DT work For The LOVE of Art

This week I am very happy to share the layouts and  other items I created with  the  Authentique "Lively" collection .  First let me give you links to the items in (fantastic) design team kit for November I received:
Petaloo Flowers and Pins, Freckled Fawn Washi Tape, Kaiser Craft pearl strips, Burlap sheet,
Maya Road Trim  and May Arts Mesh.
I loved the mix of supplies and since at first I was stumped as in how I was going to use the burlap I will start off with the card and tag I made from this months box of goodness.
  I took the following items...
 1st I took a can of "June Taylor's Basting Spray" and lightly misted a piece of cardstock and pressed a piece of burlap onto it. If you would like any of these pictures enlarge just click on them.

 Then I ran it through my "Vagabond" machine with the Tim Holtz sizzix butterfly mover and shaper die.
I liked the result so well I tried it again with a couple of more shapes.
Here is my finished card and tag.
I hope you enjoyed the little tutorial. I plan on making some more textured embellishments with the burlap.
Don't forget there is a fantastic sale in the For the Love of Art Store. Go there fast and check it out!
I will share on of my layouts tomorrow. I would love you to come back and take a look.

Carrie Underwood's cd "Blown Away" hit the stores and once Julie listen she had lots of ideas for photo shoots which of course lead to scrapbook layouts for me!
Carrie's "Goodby Shoes" song and video lent itself to a bit of fun..
