Halo's Last Page

Hello everyone, Today I am posting a scrapbook page it is the last page in my grandaughters first year scrapbook. I got it finished just in time for Mothers day for her Mom and she loved it. I really did not want to be working on it and she was graduating college. I am posting the last page because it was the favorite for most people, it also was so amazing how the photo came about. Halo was sitting with my sister playing with the camera, well it seems she had changed some of the settings which is why the photo is in sepia and not color. My sister did not know that halo had changed the settings and took her photo as Halo was longingly looking for her mom who had stepped out of the room for a moment. Although Halo is 18 months in the photo I had to include it in the album. The page has a transparency overlay that has a frame, I added the stickers hope wish and time along with the rhinestones. I also added the lyrics to If I could by Regina Bell to the background. Thanks for stopping by have a creative day Alicia

Amazing Paper Grace

I had the best weekend I was able to meet one of my favorite card makers and bloggers Becca from Amazing Paper Grace.Becca was at the Adventures in Stamping convention in Akron, Ohio. If you have never been to her blog you are missing a real treat and if you have stopped by you understand why I was so excited. I guess beautiful people make beautiful things because Becca was so Friendly and willing to share her card making knowledge I felt like I was talking to a old friend. I tried not to stalk her too much didn't want her think she needed to get a restraining order !!! To put it in perspective for my husband to understand I told him if I were a teenager she would be my Justin Beiber(Insert high pitch teenage scream) The whole convention was nice of course my wallet will take a couple of months to recover from the trauma.
I Guess I should sneak in a quick card . Yes I am hooked on making shutter cards this one used $1 store layered stickers . The base is glitter pattern cardstock.
Thanks Stopping by Alicia
