These Boots Were Made For Walking.....

This is a layout I did last night of my daughter on graduation night.  It was hot in Victoria, TX where graduation was held so she wore shorts under her graduation robe, AND her cowboy boots! I thought that was so cute, so I took pics!
The pink papers are both from K&Company and the lined paper as well as the small circle is Basic Grey from their Recess pack.  I used Walnut Stain distress ink from Tom Holtz to ink all the edges of the papers after I distressed them with Tim Holt sandpaper block.  The flourish is Prima as are the flowers. I used my Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch to make the butterflies.  The lace strips on the bottom of the photos are from K&Company (an older pack, Sweetheart I think is the name of it).  It was so much fun to work on this page! I love distressed paper! TFL!


This is a layout of me, my sister Dana, my cousin Tracey and my brother Todd when we were kids.  I laugh every time I see the haircut and my snaggle toothed mouth! LOL
I lifted a layout of Luzma's for a challenge on for this page. I used acrylic paint for the orange splotch and to paint the inside of the little wood frame.  I will definately be using that technique again! I love the boldness of the paint!  The flowers are from Prima. I used alcohol ink to color the bling circle to match the color pallette of the page and I also used the ink to color the wood bird and frame, then I stickled them too. I cut the butterfly out from a Melody Ross pp, folded it upwards to give it dimension. The tag at the top of the page is from Graphic 45 and the TOGETHER tag is from K&Company I think.  I enjoyed creating the page the picture! Thanks for looking!
