Remember the Moments

The inspiration for this layout is my great hubby Kevin & our sweet pooch Sami. The layout was done using the "My Creative Scrapbook" November kit. It is my first monthly kit from them & I was very happy with the amount & quality of the product in the kit. I still have much left over & will be doing at least 2 more layouts with the kit. The papers are Dream Street & Crate paper. I added Bazzill black card stock , Stickles & few jewels. Everything else was part of, or made from the kit. The lettering was Maya Road inked with StazOn black ink. I also altered the photo in Photoshop to go with the paper.

I did cut work with the patterned paper, distressing all raw edges with Tim Holtz Distress black soot ink. I then highlighted the paper with eucalyptus Stickles. Rub ons were added on the photo!

A stamped bird was distressed & added to fill an empty space! Rubber stamps make such good fillers!!! The small circles on the background were punched from the same paper used in cut work. I elevated them with small foam squares for dimension.I added some clear jewels that were colored with Tim Holtz Alcohol ink-latte. I have used this technique several times Its a great way to get different colors!

The flower was made using silks that were included in the kit. The paper layers & flourishes were made with my Big Shot, also using papers from the kit. All flower layers were distressed with black soot ink & then highlighted with eucalyptus Stickles. I think
I really enjoyed working with the kit!
