I am feeling very sad today. It is our last DT meeting tonight. BUMMER!!!!! I can not believe that this year has gone by so fast. I had such a wonderful time being on the DT. I feel like I have learned so much from the other ladies on the team and our wonderful teacher Melissa. I want to thank both Melissa and Janet for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this fabulous experience. The other ladies on the team are the best. We had so much fun at the meetings. Some of the groups nights were a real challenge because we had to finish a complete layout before leaving. I had never made a layout that fast, but we were paired up with another member and it all seemed to come together in the end. It was great.
Now on to my final DT layout. Our challenge this time was to actually use a sketch. I have never really used sketches in the past, but I must say I enjoyed it. We had 4 to choose from and the sketch was actually a one page layout that we had to make into a two page layout. We were given a few embellishments from Webster's Pages and told to use new paper.
Here is my layout:
This is my daughter when she was 16 months old(she is 27 now). When I received the blue cameo I know what picture I was going to use. I love the Webster's paper and all the new embellishments they have.
The gold backgound and blue/white paper is from the Webster's Pages, so is the fabric tag, lace and cameo. The flower paper is SEI, gold Bazzill cardstock, and Tattered Angel tile. I painted the tile with my Ink Pots.
All the flowers, leaves, gold scrolls, gold butterfly and blue bird are Prima. I have Jenny Bowlin buttons. Stick pins and ribbon for the tags. I inked the edges of all the papers & tags. Sewed one end of the lace to gather it and pop dotted a lot of the embellishments. I have to say I really like the way this layout came together.
Thanks for looking! Lisa
