It's Bekah's Day & Clue #2

Wednesday, August 3, 2011


Happy Wednesday ya'll!

My blog post is serving two different purposes today. One is to show off my oldest daughter {Rebekah} while she's home from college. The second is to show off the {wonderful} August Kit that I received from Leeanne at Artful Delight. Thanks so much Leeanne!


Bekah performs a lot in plays and musicals. She comes alive on stage, but hates having her picture taken...{go figure}...{sigh}. I've had to literaly follow her around all summer {forcing her} to pose. 

 
Now...more about this gorgeous Artful Delight kit. {I used their August sketch}. Don'tcha just love the flower and the metal brad? I layered it with some paper flowers using my SU punch. A pack of glitter flourishes are also in the kit. Love it on the page.


I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch on the paper. I topped them with some Creative Charms gems and a metal butterfly. 


I also did a bit of {upcycling}. The raffia ribbon under the photo was actually wrapped around the pretty packaging that Leeanne sent me with the kit. It's always fun to use recycled items.

I'm off to do some packing and organizing. I'm actually getting to meet some friends out in blog land at a local crop in a couple of days. So exciting to actually meet the people behind the blog. :)

And don't forget about this...the suspense is building...

Gorgeous LO Angi!!! SO GLAD you like the kit. And that swirl is amazing on the LO. When I first got them in the mail I thought, wow those might not match. LOL! BUT it looks great together with the papers and embellishments. :-)

Hello Angi, Thanks for stopping by my site...I am super excited to meet you. Your daughter is absolutely gorgeous and your layout compliments her beautiful smile. I also have a daughter who is super shy in front of the camera but is in theatrical arts/drama/chorus. You have such a fun page and I am definitely grabbing me a button.
