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,
I was in a very creative mood this week and created not 1 but layouts inspired by Pinterest.  Now for all who are not familiar, Pinterest is this crazy, addicting and fabulous website, where you can put all your favorite things in one spot.  I have often thought to myself I could create the creates layouts with some of these picures and sayings that I have collected.  Here it is I hope you enjoy.
For all that know and love me you are familiar with my love of pink pretty things. So of course I based the first page on PINK!  I added  alot of little favorites such as pieces from Primas new Romance Novel line.
                                                                Lace and butterflies............

And of course, lots and lots of beautiful flowers.
and flowers...............and
yes you guessed it................more flowers.  most handmade by me  but I also used some I am roses, Mon ami and of course Prima creations because they are so beautiful
Well my fearless followers, since this posting seems to be running long (because I have so much to share on it)   I have decided to post the details of the ""blue" layout in morning......So I hope you stay tuned and enjoy...............

God bless and good wishes, thanks for stopping by.
