Cute and Sweet

Hello everyone!!  The other day I was looking in my memory box and I found this photo of my son Alexander when he was 11 months old..awww  he looked so cute in this photo.  I can't believe he turned 20 years old last June...how times flies...right?
I worked this page with the beautiful Autumn Vintage Basics collection by Maja Design.

The flowers, cherub, wood pieces and the stripes bubbles stencil are from Prima.

I made a mask with different hole punches and I used it with molding paste in my background work here.

I added a zipper, lace and lots of pearls.  I made the leaves with a Stampin Up punch.

Travel the 7 Seas

Hello everyone!! Today I want to share with you this travel page that I made with the Dreamer collection.  Here are my hubby and I in our anniversary trip.  I love the design in this paper so I followed the stripes design and added lace, cheesecloth and burlap to give textures to my project.    Let's see more closer details...

I cut the paper along the lines and added fabrics: lace, burlap and laces.


My tittle is a sticker from the Natural Walk collection .

I decorated my page with some Element 6 x 12- Natural Walk from 7 Dots.  I also used Prima flowers and embellishments in my page.

supplies: 7 Dots- Natural Walk collection: Elements 6x12, Word stickers, Dreamer collection: Sweet Dream paper.  Prima Marketing: flowers, stamp, bulb.  Burlap, lace, cheesecloth, gesso, buttons.
