"Stamped Background" Challenge

This is my page for Stamped Background Challenge at Scrapbook Sisters:

 I stamped leaves and stems on the pink background paper with the same green that is in the girls pink shirts. I cut out stamped flower images and placed them directly over the matching stamped flower image on the background paper to create the dimension.   I added a pre-made scrolled butterfly and bling to the flower centers.
The tag is vellum with a stamped image.

I had two of these pictures so I made one for each of the girl's scrapbooks. This time used my leaf/branch die along with the same stamped cut out flowers. I also stamped the upper left corner with a very pale pink. It was pretty simple as I didn't alter the leaf branches like it did in my last post's scrapbook page. I hope to inspire someone who would like to use their stamps more like I need to do.

Paper Flower Layers with Branches Scrapbook Page/Text and Tulle Challenge/Flowers Challenge

 Here is my favorite scrapbook lay-out from the crops I went to this spring.

I used my Sizzix Flower Layers and Sizzlits Branch w/Leaves dies in the BigKick to create this page. The flowers are layered with some lace backing the largest flower.

I then dotted the Glossy Accents to adhere the Twinklets Diamond Dust to give sparkle to the flowers and some branches.

I found a wonderful new blog with new challenges at Scrapbook Sisters:
The above project and the scrapbook page below  is linked to Scrap it Girl May Flowers challenge.
The 3 pinwheel flowers are made from pink lace then centered with layered, punched out flowers and a brad. The large flower is a 12inch piece of lace that I dyed with perfect pearls before making the flower.

Text and Tulle Challenge at City Crafter 

This is a special lay-out for me. I wore this flower girl dress for my Aunt's wedding when I was 4.  The tulle and flowers are part of the vail but this is the last of the tulle.   I made other pages of  my older daughter in this dress and 2 other projects. I guess I have really cherished the outfit and wanted it's story to be told.
