She's Baaaaaaack!!

Hello Everyone,

I am officially back from my hiatus...I hit a little scrapbook "plateau", I got lost in a foreign land where nothing I seemed to create was good enough or ever got finished. It was almost like that recurring dream where my layouts came to life and tried to eat me alive...

I have awakened from that dream, my creative cap is again firmly in place. My experimentation has prompted the firm placement of our sewing machine on my scrapping table. Almost every layout I do now, has some form of stitching (much less labor intensive than all the hand stitching I was doing) And I am now finally ready to unleash my pages for all of you...

This page is one of my latest was inspired by the amazing picture of my Mama. I thought she was beautiful in it, and in turn it inspired me to make a very girly page (something I usually avoid) I named in "Fleur de ma coeur" a.k.a "Flower of my heart".
In this page I wanted people to be aware the picture was of my mom so I included one of the alphabet cards from October Afternoon as shown above. The only thing I added to it was some stickles to punch up the M.

I stitched the flower below the picture "free hand" which is why it is uneven in places, I think it adds some character. The other flowers in this page are Prima. The semi circle of paper at the bottom is cut from Dear Lizzy - Spring flowering fields paper. The alphabet stickers are Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses.

Other than that I added some pearl accents and some journaling.....that's all she wrote!

It's good to be back ladies,

Happy Blogging!
