Hello Blogging Friends
Before I start, I would just like to say Congratulations to Prince William and Catherine on the safe delivery of a Baby Boy! I am sure his cute little face will be plastered all over the news very soon. I just hope the press will give them some space to be a family.
Right, onto today's post. I have used a kit which I bought many many years ago, but as per me I have "tweaked" it to my liking.
All the papers are My Minds Eye, Lost and Found, with a few Snippets added. These photos were taken in Rome in February 2011. We managed to tie the break in with Valentine's Day so were able to celebrate it in sunshine. The larger photo being at the Forum and the smaller one was taken at the Spanish Steps.
I added some music under the title, which was cut out of one of the sheets that were in the kit. I used a Snippet and then ribbed some Treasured Gold wax over. I also took a piece of C Snippets and punched some corners, again rubbing with wax.
On the edge of the brown paper stock I stamped my Tim Holtz flourish stamp and then embossed with gold embossing powder (see I told you I tweak things!). I cut a tag from Snippet left over from my C album and stamped it with a NBUS (Never Before Used Stash), a Wendy Vecchi stamp and embossed it with red embossing powder and then went around the edges using the same powder. I then decided to echo the TH stamping and went over the top with Brushed Corduroy DI (as I used on all my edges). I added a piece of ribbon and a small Snippet of hemp string that has been hanging around on my desk for ages.
In order to add a little journalling, I cut a TH label, inked the edge and drew around the edge before writing my journalling on there.
Simon Says Stamp are asking this week for Celebration projects, well we were celebrating Valentine's Day.
I am also taking this down to the Playground as there are Snippets included. I wonder if the Treehouse is still standing. There is a rumbling in the jungle that it was being removed and being replaced with a trampoline! How we are going to keep dry and warm when the cooler weather comes? That parrot isn't going to want to stay outside either!!
TTFN and thanks for calling by.
