Sorry I haven't posted in a while, time gets away from me before I know it. I just completed a LO using one of my favorite paper packs from CTMH it is called "Magnifique". I love all the blue tones. I also used The "Circle of love" stamp set the goes perfectly with it. It has this wonderful image of a peacock and peacock feathers. Here is the LO and I will explain some exciting sites that I also found to get awesome SVG files that you can use with your Cricket or other cutting devices.

This is pics of my DD. She and I have stuggled with her Bipolar for years. She has grown a lot with learning to deal with it better than when she was little. There were days we would both go to bed crying. But these days it is a lot better. I am so proud of her.. She has good grades and cares a  lot about them being good!!
I think this LO reflects the stormyness in her eyes that she often has. I also used florabella collection with PSE to enhance the pics still kinda new using the actions and textures. Here is a close up of the Left side.

Right side
I used Lisa's vintage seam binding technique. I also got some of the awesome seam binding that she mentions in her tute!! Its called Hug snug and it is wonderful! The Fence and Hinge that I used came from a really awsome site for SVGs here is the link to Dan's site sure you will find some goodies there as well. I don't wanna forget the free SVG site that I found and used to cut out the back ground as well here is the link to the free SVG blog that I have sumbled across.
The title that says "stormy" was CTMH "Irresitibles eclectic die cuts" they come in white with a already embossed back ground that you can color to your hearts content. I colored mine with Pacifica ink at the top and colonial white at the bottom. The colonial white dries slower so I put that down first. Then sponged in the Pacifica down into the white to blend them in together. I think it turned out pretty cool! Here is a close up of the title.
Pretty cool huh!! I also used that same idea on the "behind" in the title. They are sticker letters that was already white. I just sponged a little Pacifica at the top.
The Peacock was way fun to do as well!! It is in the "Circle of love" stamp set along with the feathers! Oh and by the way I am gonna issue my first challange to ya.. Try using Feathers in the place of leaves on your next LO using your flowers!! I have seen a lot of feathers appearing in differnet things and on my little shopping trip to Hobby Lobby got me some of them!!! Oh boy do they have all kinds of cool colors and designs on them!! I went nuts on them big time!! Here is a close up of the flower clusters and the beautiful peacock!!
After I loaded my stamp with the colors using a dobber, I added some cool glitter that my DD just had to have. I told her that it came with a condition.. That I could use it too!! I put a few color sparkles that we have at CTMH in various places on it as well. Can't forget the Prima bling also Love, Love, Love Prima!!
And of course my "Nurses Rose" just fit right in perfectly. Here is the link to the tute.

The eyes behind the word Beautiful is also My DD's. I used photo shop to cut that section out of a picture and also enhanced it to kinda look as though her eyes are coming out of clouds. Then made a tag to complete the title. I think it looks kinda cool!

Well thats it for now! Hope you like it!! Please leave me a comment and let me know what ya think!! See ya soon!!!!!
