This next LO is, again, my daughter at the beach. I love this picture because as we were sitting playing in the sand, my son said something and my daughter whipped around and smiled at him. I just so happened to have my camera trained on her anyway trying to get a good profile shot of her. I used my Martha Stewart shell punch. That's what I call it anyway, not sure of what the true name is. The small roses again are Recollections. The bigger flowers are Prima. The title I used out of Tim Holtz grungeboard and then used my alcohol ink with the silver additive to color them. The shell border came from my stash. I also used some bling.
A Grandmother's Love. A special LO to me. My MIL was in town for the month of August to visit with us and the kids. She had moved back to her hometown, which is over 1000 miles away, a little over a year ago. While she was in town she suggested us getting pictures made. So I called my photographer and got us an appointment. This shot is precious to both her and I. This LO I actually made for my MIL. I mailed it to her and she called crying telling me how much she loved it. She is going to hang it on her wall. :)
This is the first LO I ever did that I did water distressing on. I actually loved the process and the result of it. The red flower in the upper right corner is a flower that I made. I put the tutorial on my blog several months ago. I edited the photo to fade the sides in and add the word LOVE on it. Then I placed a clear overlay frame over top it. The green flower is Prima and the two smaller flowers I made. I also used some bling and I believe that butterfly is Prima too.
As always, I appreciate all comments and I truly thank you for taking the time to look and read my blog. I really does mean the world to me. Even though I can't always update it on time. With 2 small kids and many many many projects and now sports practices I hope you understand. :) Thanks again!!!!
