Again the pattern paper and sticker were from the kit, I added some cardstock and ribbon. I borrowed the scallop punches from TSF's crop space and I am thinking I need to add them to my ever-growing wish list of tools!
For this 'Sisters' layout I added the BoBunny dot in blue ( I told you it was a fave!), the base cardstock, chipboard swirls, ribbon, fabric flowers and bling. It was my first time working with Glamour dust and I was really happy with the effect. I first painted Craft n' Craftin chipboard swirls with white paint then while the paint was still wet I sprinkled on the dust. I added a thin coat of Glossy Accents on top and voila, sparkly swirls! The frame was cut out on the Cricut.

One of my favourite things to do with the boys is go for hikes on the many nature trails in the area. It's always a great opportunity for photos like this one of Holden this past summer. I chose to use a black and white to make it work better with these colours. I do this often when I have a colour scheme in mind and the photo clashes with it.
I used some faux stitching rubons which is such an easy way to get the sewn look for us 'non-sewers' out there! I cut out the 'Happy Trails' circle on the Cricut and used a 'my Mind's eye' diecut circle phrase to emphasize the hiking theme. That little bling bug has been in my stash since they first arrived at TSF and I have been waiting for the right project to use it. The colours worked perfectly so it finally got to 'crawl' onto a layout! Pop dots under the hand cut flowers and 'where to?' diecut add dimension.
