She is the Tweetest!

Happy Monday Ladies! 

I must admit I'm rather enjoying this girly layout much so that I have another one to share!

My my2angels stash doesn't seem to be getting any fact I thinks it's getting bigger......Darn you Tracy for getting in gorgeous new stock all the time!!! 

I've used the delightful Basic Grey - Kissing Booth range again.....I really love it! I made my own mist by mixing a few drops of Tea Dye Reinker & a little water in a Inkssentials Mini Mister. I used a doily as a mask and sprayed over it. All the stitching on the layout is done by separating the red from the white twine (Maraschino Bakers Twine), and stitching with the red twine.....I like the texture of it better than the usual old dmc thread! 

Now, because I like to do things the hard way.....I made the "rosette" by cutting strips of paper, punched strips with a border punch, took a century and a half to score lines on the strips, folded then stuck together, then inked around the edge with Tea Dye Distress Ink. To save yourself the effort (and you're sanity) you could also use a Tim Holtz Rosette Die. If you do not have a die machine, just ask Tracy to cut a couple of strips of whatever paper you've purchased and she will happily oblige.....honest!!! I've also Layered a Kraft Tag # 5 and a piece of a White Scalloped Edge Felt Frame.

I'm digging using lot's of flowers....good times......good times....
I've painted a Scrapware Doily Frame with a Paint Dabber - Snow Cap White, which I also swiped over the Self Adhesive Rhinestone Circle that I stuck to the frame. After that was dry I then went over it with Distress Stain - Peeled Paint.
I've altered a Silver Oval Frame with Bow Charm by painting it with my trusty Paint Dabber - Snow White, then painting over with Glimmer Glaze - Paradise pink then added some detail with a black pen. 

Here I've Layered a Red and White Spotted Acrylic Button, a Pink Rose & a Black Bird on a Swing Charm, which I've painted with my Paint Dabber - Snow White then painted again with Glimmer Glaze - Cowboy. I've tied the charm with some Green and White Baker's Twine

The Alphas I've used are Foam Thickers - Daiquiri Green & Webster's Pages Alpha Stickers.

Thankyou SO SO SO much for visiting my blog. Reading the comments makes me so happy and gives me a little spring in my step!

Love and Peace xox
