saturday...AWDML NSD Blog Hop!

Can you feel the excitement! All over the world, fellow paper crafters are creating today! So what are you doing today? Are you at a crop? Or enjoying the solitude of your own scrap space? Are you ready for a fun weekend with A Walk Down Memory? I know I am!

Here's the layout that I made for the Bloh Hop of those simple moments that I cherish with my hubby:

cardstock: Bazzill;
patterned paper: Basic Grey Hello Luscious (Blissful)Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden (Flower Gardens);
letter stickers: Basic Grey Micro Mono Alpha Stickers (Hello Luscious);
flowers: Prima Homespun Bitties Natural;
bling: Prima Say It In Crystals Swirls Clear Flourish, Ranger Stickles (Diamond), Ranger Liquid Pearls (White Opal ), Want 2 Scrap Pearls (Black);
pen: American Crafts Precision Pen 05 (Black);
ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo);
tools: Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page (Wild Flowers), Spellbinders Shapeabilities Labels 4, Spellbinders Rose Creations, Cuttlebug MachineTim Holtz Paper Distresser;
other: Photoshop CS4, Epson Printer, sewing machine

Now, I have to say that I loved working on this layout! I've had these pictures of my hubby and I for a few years now and was waiting for the right papers and design for them. The Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden collection is perfect for them and the Prima flowers accent my pictures beautifully.

Here's a close up of the flowers and leaves cluster. I also added a bling flourish to accent the right sid eof the picture.

I loved how the strip of smaller pictures compliment the larger one so I had to add them too!

I added a few scattered pink butterflies and added stickles to them to bling them up.

Finally, here's a close up of my journaling. It reads: I cherish these simple moments that we spend together. Tropical Park/July 26, 2009"
