Ever had one of those photos where you REALLY want to put it on a LO but haven't found the perfect paper for it? This picture has been taunting me for over a year now.
Last night I decided to finally finish it! As I was sadly saying I didn't have any beautiful Prima flowers to add to the layout, a good friend (thanks Liz!) suggested trying to do a few roses Tim Holtz style! A genius she is! :)
After watching a few tutorials, I felt brave enough to try it. I do not have the Sizzix die Tim Holtz uses, but I do have my Cricut! I used a flower from Straight From The Nest and this is the end result. I used Icicle Stickles and a paint brush to add to the flowers.
I'm also submitting this for Erin Lee Creative. Every Monday a new challenge for Music Monday will be posted! This week the song was "You Are The Best Thing" by Ray Lamontagne and all I could think about was our AAAA Ball picture! So here it is. :)
