The Shortest Distance Between Two People Is A Smile

This is a layout I created using  pic of my hubby and me. I also used papers and embellies that came in my Swirlydoos KOTM. I painted some chippies, punched and distressed, and did some hand stitching. 
I also stamp embossed the tags and painted them with distress ink and glimmer mist spray.

Here are my projects created using the Swirlydoos' December kit. 

This first project is based on this month's sketch (using a pic of my hubby and I). 
I distressed the edges of the paper and tucked in some hidden lace here and there. I also lightly misted the background using a stencil. I added some metal brads around the page and added the TH metal word band that came in our kit. I painted the chippy with embossing powder and used lots of embellies.  

Here is the sketch provided by our lovely sketch artist Beggahuna. 

In this layout (I used a pic of my beautiful mother and handsome brother) I decided to use the lighter shades of white, yellow and green. I did some punching and  ink distressing. I also made the large yellow flower using TH's tattered poinsettia die. I fussy cut the ornaments and added some bling to make them look like they are hanging. The background paper has a stencil painted with starburst sprays and also some gold crackling color by viva. I added some resins and chippies and brads. 

This final layout I made (using a pic of my family) with two different shades. I did some hand stitching and of course, my paper distressing. The rub-on's and flowers came in our kit.

The title to this is: Wish You Were Here
In honor of my beloved doggy Cozmo..I thought I'd do a page with pictures of him when he was a puppy and when he was older with my husband.
