My most favorite LO in a while...

You know how every once in a while you complete one of those LOs that you just wanna frame and never put away? Well I finally got one of those... it's been a while! lol

(It's funny cuz this one had been in the LO planner for a looooooooooooong time.)

Sorry for the picture over load... I have lots of details I wanna point out! :o)

First off, the paper is from the Me & My Big Ideas "Fashion District" stack. I just love the vintage/shabby/thrown together look so tons of supplies were used on this... I'll try to list them all!

My favoite thing in the whole world right now is the spiral journal notepads from making memories and anything with old ledger like print on it! You'll find a few rub-ons and stamps on this piece tucked behind the pic. I also used the threading water punch and weaver ribbon through the top of the matted pic and then left it "unraveled" after coming around the top right corner. I added a flourish rub-on the the pic from Autumn Leaves.

For the left side, I simply used my craft knife to fussy cut along the flowers in the PP to create a "pocket" to slip the pic in. I added various flowers (all prima) and brads on top of the flowers in the PP.

ALong the bottom of the matted pic I used a flower ribbon I found at Michaels and put a sequin and brad in the center of each individual flower. I finally got to use an awesome felt decorative border I've had for quite a while from Autumn Leaves. The big flowers are also from Prima, but they have been treated with Tattered Angels' "Glimmer Mist" in Silver. If you have not yet tried this awesome product, I HIGHLY recommend it!

At the bottom right, I used Ranger distressed ink to stamp an awesome mega background stamp I got from Stampin' Up, then added letters: Rubons from Heidi Grace, glitter stickers from Memory Makers, and Felt Thickers.


  1. Yep, it's too pretty not to frame. And how does one look like that after a so-called long day? Lol~That's not what I looked like and I had an easy labor:-P
