Beautiful Dream

You know how you see a photo for the first time and you just fall in love with it, this was one of those for me. The sky is so blue (not even Photoshopped), her face so dreamy and the pumpkin a rich burnt orange color, the whole scene is so ethereal. Tried a little color blocking and created a faux envelope. Here are the results...very linear, even for me :)

Cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: Little Yellow Bicycle, My Little Shoebox, Sassafrass; stickers: K & Co., Little Yellow Bicycle; diecuts: Little Yellow bicycle,Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz; brads: K & Co., Making Memories, eyelets: Making Memories; punch: E K Success; circle cutter: Coluzzle, Provo Craft; ribbon: ink: Colorbox; American Craft; pen: Sakura; adhesive: 3L, Tombow; misc: twine.

My best friend of 28 years and I "did" lunch and caught up on kids, jobs and family matters :) Then this afternoon Matthew begged to go to the antique mall. Since I enjoy a good stroll around the mall myself, off we went! He came home with the Eagles album "Hotel California" and I nabbed an awesome Victorian flower frog. Perfect for displaying cards and such. It cracks me up that he loves the music that I grew up with and acts like it is all new for me. Here is a sample of our conversation..."Mom, do you know who sings this song?", "Yes" I reply. He turns and looks at me incredulously, "Really?" and " Yes really" is my answer :)

Happy surprise this afternoon, my layout "If I Could Turn Back Time" was highlighted on the Club Creating Keepsakes Blog along with several other very lovely cards and layouts. Pop on over and check out our creations!
