The Blue project

I  would like to start todays post just saying thank you to all of our military personnel and their family members. What you do for our country  is priceless and appreciated.    And now onto this weeks project.  As you can see my previous blog entry was the first half of this project.  This page was really inspired by som Mon Ami roses.

As you can see the rich navy blue color is just gorgous and thought it would be a great way to challenge myself and come up with a layout using a blue color scheme. 
The other piece I used from Mon Ami was this beautiful lace that I bought at last years scrapbook expo.  This lace was just so intriquete and beautiful I knew this would be perfect for this layout.  I highlighted by adding a flat backed pearl to the center of each flower on the lace.
The paperline I used is from Fabscraps another of my most favorite things

I also had this beautiful feather that I thought would play into the earthiness that I wanted to bring out in this piece.
It also allows me to tie this other embelleshment into the layout.
finally I needed a picture that would be dramatic enough for this layout........and I think this photo I found on Pinterest is perfect.
Here is the finished piece.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.
God Bless,


  1. Wow Jenifer what an awesome layout the blue eye pics are captivating!! What a gorgeous layout. I totally love it!!!

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my layout. I agree with you.. its hard to step out but its good to step out too. I love pink, we sound very similar, I find I can scrap with easy when I scrap with colors I like... The colors in this challenge kit are picked for you and wow, I found it difficult as this kit color was very much out of my comfort zone. Green, red,yellow and orange are not my fav.. but yet its fun too, for someone to choose colors, because you never know what your going to get. When I got the kit I have to admit it sat spread out on my table for days, as I constantly walked past or sat and stared. lol Thank goodness we are given 25 days to complete if need be.

    Thanks again for stopping by Jennifer.

  3. Happy new year Jennifer! I hope the new year has started out well! Thanks for your wonderful comment on my Wedding anniversary layout. I'm really not sure where the 30 years went lol
