Hope that everyone had a great Father's Day (even if you are mot a father!). My husband and I went to breakfast with my dad and brother and then we went to see his dad. We had a small get together at my husband's uncle's house and we went in the pool for about 3 hrs or so. It as a blast!

Anyway, now for the important things. I finished another layout today. I think this has to be a record or something because I've only been taking one day to finish a layout when it usually takes me at least 2 days. I entered this layout in 3 challenges:

Pages in Time
Scraplift Challenge. I scraplifted Lisa's If a Picture Say. I scraplifted the circle behind the picture, the greenery and the bling location.

Sketch Inspiration Sketch #129. I used the basic design but mirrored it to fit my picture better.

Color Combo Galore Inspiration Board #147 which is to use cream, green, brown and gold/yellow.

Here is my layout:

I cut the greenery, leaves and flowers with my Pazzles. For the circle, I used Craftysprinkles Easy water distressing technique. The other papers I just ran a pair of scissors through the edge to distress them. The wavy border is inspired by Gabi's layouts as well as the faux green stones in the bottom right corner. I actually made them in photoshop, print, cut, and added diamond glaze over them. A little different than Gabi's handmade technique. Love how they turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week! I'll leave you with some close ups of the page:


  1. Way to work those challenges---this layout is wonderful--love those flowers.
