Etsy Inspired 39

Hello ladies! :) This weeks store is so so so adorable! I wish I could buy each piece in there for Raine! The shop is called Chicky Creations. They have the most adorable hair bows, headbands, etc. in this store! Please go check it out, especially if you have a little girl like me! :)

Here is a picture of this weeks prize from the shop:

Isn't it beautiful?? I love it! So awesome! :)

Here is a picture of my inspiration piece:

And here are 2 pictures of my layout that I came up with based on it:

Close up:

Sorry for the horrible pictures, I need to get outside to take them! Hopefully I can switch out the pics with better ones in the morning! :)

But anyways, I wanted a heart felt layout. I am not really sure why. I guess I am realizing my baby is growing up(she is begging to go to school) and I need to let her be more independent.

The journaling reads:
"Oh my sweet Raine. I would give you the world if it were possible. I cannot describe how much you mean to me. You are my reason for breathing every breath. You are my purpose in life. I feel God brought me to this world, so I could bring you into it. My love for you is never ending. I will love you every single day I live. Your sweet, caring personality is one of a kind. I love you around the world and back again, thousands and thousands of times. Always and forever, Mommy xoxoxoxo "

Now make sure you go to the Chicy Creations store and pick out a inspiration piece. Then go ahead, and make something fabulous, take a picture of it, and link it up to Ashley's blog! :) Then you are entered to win that fabulous red hair piece!

Now go check out the rest of the DT! :) A big welcome to Carole and Jenn, our guest DT's this month!


Thanks for stopping by! :)

Card and a layout

Hello ladies! :) I made a card and layout since yesterday! woo hoo!

The layout is monochromatic for the Unity Guest DT KOM challenge. I would love to make this spot as Unity is my DREAM TEAM, but everyone that has entered is so amazingly talented! :)

And a close up:

The picture of Raine and I was taken last spring when we went to Disney World. We were waiting for the night parade at the Magic Kingdom, so I took the picture. :)

I really used my stamp-a-majig for this layout. I use it for the swirls on the layout that are in a row, I used it for the I love you sentiment, and I used it for the lollipop trees at the bottom. I layed down my DP and hand sewed the zig zag at the top of it since I don't have a sewing machine. I added the pink layer and added the shine sentiment, and stamped the butterfly on vellum with versamark, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I layered my picture down, and added buttons. I added the lace, and stamped the lollipop trees on white cardstock, and the colored and cut them out, and adhered them down.

Supplies used:
Unity Stamps- April KOM
SU card stock, MME DP, and vellum
versamark, SU marker, white pigment ink, bic mark it
buttons, lace, clear embossing powder, paper studio pearls

I also got Birdie Inspiration in the mail from a very lovely lady, and wanted to use it right away! :) So I made this card!

Supplies Used:
Unity Stamps- Birdie Inspiration
MM Chloe's Closet DP, SU card stock
colorbox chalk chesnut roan
MM Chloe's Closet buttons

That is all for today! :) Thanks for stopping by!
