Special Moment, Layout #73

For this page I wanted to chronicle a special moment between my kids and my husband's uncle, whom they had just met for the first time about a month before. I used some papers and the stamp set from Close to My Heart's Felicity kit, a special edition kit that came out a while ago. I also used the Reflections page pattern (Front and Center-Blocks) that was illustrated in the brochure that came with the kit, and shamelessly scraplifted the swirls and flowers from the sample! The photo block was all my idea, though. The photo had a lot of distracting background stuff, so I just cut it out and made a living room scene with it. Doesn't the striped paper look like wallpaper? Then I stamped the Tim Holtz chandelier and swirl in the corner. I really like how it turned out!

Supplies (all CTMH): cardstock, patterned paper, and stamp set from Felicity kit, patterned paper from Grace Level 2 paper pack, Exclusive Inks stamp pads in Cocoa, Twilight, and Desert Sand, Exclusive Inks marker in Cocoa, Twinle Brads, Photo Hangers, Clear Sparkles

Other: Tim Holtz stamp set, Distress Ink, and Perfect Pearls, Tattered Angels Gimmer Mist, unknown ribbon

  1. What a beautiful layout Rox! I love the swirls and flowers (: I didn't even realize the background wasn't the picture until you pointed it out. That's a really neat idea!
