Enjoy The Journey - Heartfelt Creations

May 4, 2016

This year seems to be moving along as it is already May, it seemed like just yesterday we were on a cruise ship, sailing the Caribbean, So we are now in May.  Today I have an altered project to share with you using an older collection from 2014 from Heartfelt Creations called Celebrate the Journey.  Over the years, my style sure has changed, and I am thankful i have found what works for me, i suppose that is all part of being an artist.

So, onto my layout, the photo is of a friends family, and i have been waiting to scrapbook it for years and finally, i dug into my supplies.  Its been a while since i have done anything mixed media wise and happy to share this with you today.


I had so much fun playing with this collection again, 


the chipboard is from Creative Embellishments, love their stuff, and Nicolle has always been such a huge supporter of my workshops :D



Those roses look fab, i used the Botanical Rose stamp and die and followed Emma Lous Rose bud tutorial which you will be able to find in my details below


a look at the title detail, hard to believe i fit all of this on a 8x8 layout :D 


the colours were perfect for this photo, i love how it turned out,!
until next time

Happy Srapping!
