"Always Blessed" 8x8 Scrapbook Page

Hello blogging lovelies! I'm here again with quick project share for ya!

Last week I received my order from Bluemoon Scrapbooking (thanks Scott & Lisa!!) and I was so excited to start using the new Prima Engraver paper and metal embellishments that came in my order. I have this favorite picture of hubster and I that my son took of us on the wharf in San Francisco. The colors on the photo went perfectly with the Black/Kraft theme of Prima's Engraver.

Here are some photos of the scrapbook page I created...

I distressed the elements on this page using a mixture of black acrylic paint and water - a "black-wash" solution, if you will. ♥ I love the Prima screws and bolts and the Letterpress Alphabet blocks from Bottle Cap Inc.

 I used a sticker "sentiment" from the Prima Engraver sticker sheet and framed it in Graphic 45's Ornate Label holder. Love, love!

I used an array of flowers - Prima, Recollections and I Am Roses... my all time FAV flower companies (I love Petaloo too, but didn't use any this time hehe!)

Peeking out in different places are my favorite black doilies! I am seriously hoarding these babies cuz they are HARD to find!! But I have my Cheery Lynn designs doily dies & black card stock just in case my supply of these black doily babies run low. LOL!

Here is the video tutorial for this scrapbook page. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for letting me share my latest creation with you. I hope I was able to share a thing or two with you via this post or through my video tutorial. ♥

Have an AMAZING week!
