I created this layout of a favorite iPhone picture of me and my 4-year old Logan. The picture was little "exposed" on the left side, but I didn't mind it so much... I love this pic and how playful and silly my son can be. He's such a ham! LOL!

I used the new Contempo Cage Die-Namics and stamp set and Prima's Printery papers for this 9x9 layout. Here are some pics:



I distressed the papers using my Tim Holtz distresser and all the die-cuts are edged with Walnut Stain distress Ink. The picture is layered on top of torn corrugated cardboard. Under that, I have an Oval Decorative Doily, and the sentiment is stamped with Walnut Stain ink onto the new Oval Tab.



I created another double-layer Rolled Gardenia using the design paper and a black pearl and all the flowers from the Flower & Leaf Trio Die-namics are edged with Walnut Stain and adhered using a large black eyelet.


The birdcage is so amazing, I LOVE this die! I added a flower and some rosettes from my stash. I used some ball chain from my stash and applied it to the Layout using glossy accents.


The vintage lace that I used is from my stash.

Now be sure to head back to Kim's blog to get a full list of the designers showcasing projects today. You won't want to miss out, that's for sure!

hugs!
