DT page for Scraps of Elegance-October "Pretty Things" kit

Sharing my first layout as a designer for the lovely Scraps of Elegance kit club; so many gorgeous pieces to work with! I chose to create a heritage layout with this photo of my great-aunt which was taken (according to the writing on the back of the original) in July of 1915.

The kit features the Bo Bunny Madeleine collection as well as selections from the Never Grow Up line by Marion Smith designs. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Pawprints on my Heart for Gina's Designs

I created this layout as a tribute to our beloved tabby cat, Chester,
who went missing in the middle of August when a door was left open. We still hope he'll show up one day,(we once had a calico cat come home after two months)
but there's a good chance we won't see our sweet boy again.

The chipboard phrase was perfect for my title, and all I did was paint it with acrylic paint to match the paper.I love how easy it is to make pieces like this coordinate with any project!

The bridge signifies the possibility the Chester has crossed the Rainbow Bridge on his way to heaven...I wanted to give it a  pearly, dreamy feel so I painted it with pearlized acrylic paint then added a touch of white mist. I layered the pieces with dimensional tape and glue dots.
