I'm a Flower

Well, it was over due time for a Lucy layout!  
I wanted to have "real" fun and dig out some very old stash to create a simple Spring time, girly layout.  
Lucy really loved my birthday flowers (this was in February) so she would sit next to them, but I always tried to keep one eye on her (including behind my head-LOL) because she's very naughty.  She did accomplish shoving her nose in the middle of the flowers but luckily I stopped her before she could rip off the petals!   >^..^<

Bazzill's "Vibrant Blue" cardstock closely matches the color of Lucy's eyes : ).
A flower stencil was applied with white modeling paste.
I used a flower punch and added white pearls along both sides of the layout.  
Then I inked the edge of the whole layout with pretty Perfect Plumeria color.  

What better for a title than "I'm a Flower" - LOL!
The words are die cut using bright yellow cardstock from my paper scrap.
This cute wood flower with stem & leaves was perfect to use for the 'word' Flower in the title!
I simply heat embossed the flower in "Snow" and the stem/leaves with Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink color Grassy Knoll. I really love this color because it's got two shades of green in it!

The smaller of the two pieces from The Dusty Attic Paisley chipboard fit perfectly under the photo.
I emboss-painted it (same technique used on my Mardi Gras Paisley layout).
I used Blue Ferns Studios Imagine Ink EPs Frozen, Seven Seas & Grassy Knoll.  
The Plum & Snow colors are Michael's Recollections.
You can see a hint of pink on the white paisley and that's because I first used BFS Pink Peppermint.  
Gorgeous color, but it just seemed out of place, so I double heat embossed white over it.  
Also, dots of Ranger Liquid Pearls color Daffodil were added.

I have a LOT of bling in my stash.  I don't use it much anymore, 
but I did remember that I had these cute little blue rhinestone flowers.
Look at the ultra-cute Jolee's Boutique dragonfly!

I was happy to find cute little resin daisies in my stash that are just over 1/4" diameter
 (seen in the photo above & on the paisley chipboard). 
 Along with other older flowers, I added in newer mulberry paper ones from Wild Orchid Crafts.  
White textured cardstock was used for the die cut leaves. 

Thanks for taking a peek at my happy Springy Lucy layout!
Have a great week! Lisa : )

Unconditional Love

Hi everyone!  Today's layout is my ultra-sweet little 12 yr old dog, Pepper!  
Oh she can just melt my heart with her eyes!

I love all tones of purple and I love flowers, 
so the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios paper in the Timeless collection was perfect 
for my precious little Pepper.  Behind the photo & the definition tag below it, 
I used the deepest purple paper also from the Timeless collection. 
A piece of cardboard is glued to the back of the photo to give dimension.

Some areas of the main page are crackle stamped in Raisin colored pigment ink.

 A couple of pieces of drywall tape, also colored in Raisin ink, added some textured interest. 

The amethyst rhinestone jewelry strand added more 'girly' to the page.

The title was easy to come up with because Pepper's love for me and mine for her 
 are definitely unconditional by all definitions. 

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!  Lisa : )
