I Think You Are Amazing

This is a gidital Scrap I made using Photoshop Elements 9.0 and the Echo Park Graceful This & That collection that is now on sale at Jessica Sprague's site.  Digital Design is great when in a hurry. If you know how to use the effects feature in Photoshop Elements, you can make a mini album in no time at all.  These papers and elements can also be printed for more traditional scraps.  Jessica has Cosmo Cricket and a bit of Pink Paisley too.

I love the old building at Tharpe's Mill in our town. I took this picture of my daughter and Nate when they came to NC for Mother's Day Weekend.

The paper is from Bo Bunny.  I used Party Picks and Banner from the Cricut Craft Room to make the Banner Drop.  I made the medallion in a sewing class using the Cutwork Needles Set from Husqvarna. Lately, I am enjoying combining  the use of sewing and scrapbooking  It is made from faux leather.  The tile and vine are from Prima and he title was die cut from Tim Holtz Vintage Market Alphabet die by Sizzix.  I used the Zutter Distress it All to distress the mat and photo.  The background for the title was from the freebies, Prima is giving away on facebook this weekend. And the strip behind that was hand cut from paper printed from my Imagine using a Vintage Damask Pattern.

Beloved Sunshine

Prima is giving a way free chipboard elements on facebook that can be print and cut out. I used them to make this layout of Justin and Meagan at Tharpe's Mill. Thank you Prima!  I was struggling with the design,because I did not have yellow elements to go with the paper I wanted to use for the picture. 

I used Tim Holtz Sizzix dies fr the tag and side frame.  The flowers, vine  and elements, of course, are from Prima. I also used Zutter's Distress it all on the mat and picture to give it more dimension,  The bling is from Walmart and glued on with Eileen's glue (love that stuff).  I edged everything with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge and Sage Distress Inks.  I just printed and cut the words o the tag on my computer in green on white cardstock.
