We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !! 
Here is my first project using this month's sketch:


I will be sharing the details on how I created this page in "Anatomy of a Page"-look for it in the Forum! Here are some close-ups:



Next is a fun canvas created with the Julie Nutting die-cut and stamp set I snagged in the Swirlydoo store.


I chose this saying as a reminder to myself for everytime I tell myself the opposite!
Lots of fun with textures and incorporating the goodies from the kit such as the Prima wooden pieces,the elegant Blue Fern Chipboard and lovely yards of trim!



My last page for today features my daughter and her BFF getting ready for the 8th grade formal. I pulled in some black accents from my stash to complement the color schemes of their outfits.




I just adore the little resin Prima fairies in the kit-loove tucking them in everywhere!
I embossed the Blue Fern chippie in silver then added touches of blue and patina before adding touches of perfect pearls as accents. I embellished and tucked in a little Prima crown for my 2 princesses!
