This LO was inpired by a BG kit-Sugar Rush using DCWV Linen Closet stack.
As always if you click on each picture you may view a larger picture. And if you leave a comment it will make my day! Thanks for looking at my blog.

Jolee's The Big Day and some Sandylion embellishments in addition to a couple of butterflies cut with MS butterfly punch. I also created a button with Imaginisce and added a few BG rub-ons.

Another Two-Page Layout for Yessie

I created this layout with Becky Fleck's Oct. 2008 Page Map inspiration and with DCWV Linen Closet paper.
For a closer look click on the picture.
I used my Gypsy and George and Basic Shapes cart to weld the letters/words.
The photo frame is from Colorbok transparency frames.
I used the white Signo pen for the journaling and I added some pearls to the journal block.
The dresses and the dress forms are Silohuette designs cut with the Puzzles Inspiration, I than Cuttlebug them using Cuttlebug folders Swiss Dot, Perfectly Paisley, Textile and Sizzix Flower-Large folder. One dress has a ribbon, the other a flower bling, the next one Stickles-Star Dust and the fourth one glass beads. The metal mini hangers are from Klutz.

Two-Page Layout

I have been working on layouts for an album for my niece/ahijada Yessie who is getting married in July. This layout is all created with DCWV paper using one of Becky Fleck's April 2010 map. It is the first LO of several to come. For this LO I have pictures since we already had a bridal shower, other layouts will not have pictures.  She can have fun with them after the wedding!

Her wedding colors are Tiffany blue? white and black.

The umbrella, big butterfly and the sentiment were cut using the Tie The Knot cart.  The smaller butterflies were cut with MS punch. I used Puffy Paint to add glitter and dimension to the butterflies.

The border to the left was cut using a flower EK punch. And the swirlys on the journaling were done with the white Signo pen and a template, and a bit of free hand. I also added a bit of Stickles to it.

The DCWV paper is already glittery. I also used a Signo white pen to journal. All pictures were inked with ColorBox chalk charcoal ink.
