It's Story Time!

The Heart 2 Heart  challenge for this week is a SCRAP BOOK LAYOUT!!! Woo hoo...just the motivation that I needed to see if I remembered how to scrapbook :) The "challenge" was to tell a story with your layout. I opted to tell of the night my daughter's fiance proposed...and how his plans were almost ruined by a FLASH FLOOD :(
You can click on the photos to enlarge for detail.
So...I really love the 3D flowers however, they don't seem very practical for scrapbook pages as they are way too bulky. I wonder how other scrapbookers deal with the bulk?  I'm glad the Art philosophy also has flat flower shapes :)

 I'll do my best to add the recipe, but it's a bit more challenging with a layout...lots of supplies were used for this! All products Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted.  Recipe: Paper pack: Roxie (including the black cardstock) , stamp sets: Moments in Time (retired) and the Roxie Workshop on the Go set., buttons (red assorted), Pretty Pink pin, Fouondry pin, Foundry ribbon slides, Filigree Charms (center of  flower),  Sparkles, Milepost shapes (corrugated starts), smoothie re-inker (I sprayed the stars, tage, part of the paper , letters and cream ric rac ribbn with glimmer mist/ re-inker using one of our wonderful spray pens.) There's a tutorial for glimmer mist on my "Tutorials and Such" page above) Designer Ribbon (red collection), bulk ric rac ribbon chipboard circles.




I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the flowers, tag, envelope, heart, large circles and letters!

Thanks for stopping by!
Marie with a :)
