A LO of my hunny and me

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. :)




Recipe:
Straight From The Nest - flower cuts at 2 1/4, 2, 1 3/4 three times each

Say It in Pearls (Hobby Lobby) - bling
Stickles - Icicle
Core'dinations - black cardstock
