Garnet – Layout 5


I had an exceptional time working with today’s steal, Nantucket by Pink Paislee. I honestly couldn’t have handpicked a better collection to highlight this sweet photo that I took of my daughter, Sarah, and my part-time daughter Lizzie on New Years Day. I love how the subtle tones worked so perfectly with the photo taken of an otherwise drab winter day.

I was so inspired by last week’s guest sketcher that I got my “Charity Becker” on and did a little fussy cutting. I cut out a handful of flowers from two of the sheets of paper to use as an embellishment border along the side of my layout. I added a little Shimmeringz spray, some ink and finished off the centers with some glitter glue then adhered them to the layout using various levels of pop dots.

The trims that come in this collection are absolutely gorgeous. I couldn’t decide which to use, the brown or the yellow, so I decided to use both and stitched them onto my layout.

Even though this collection is a more nautical themed one, it worked great for my purposes. Even though I live hundreds of miles from any ocean, I plan on using this collection for many other things in my future!

Charity did such a great job last week providing us with two sketches that I thought it would be fun to pick a random winner for each sketch.

Congrats go out to Kathy Thisted as the winner of the Opal 4a sketch
