It's Heartfelt Wednesday!

It's hump day and I'm so glad it is a short week for me!  Yippee!  And to make it that much sweeter I get to share a page I created with a brand new Heartfelt Creations collection and are these ever PRETTY!!

The Heartfelt Wedding Collection features 7 new PreCut Sets and a new exclusive Heartfelt Creations die, manufactured by Spellbinders. With this collection, you will achieve lovely cards for all the weddings you are attending this summer. You are not limited to just wedding, you can create sweetheart, friend, and all occasion cards, especially with the new vintage lace die and stamp in this collection, the sky's the limit! We are delighted that some of the images in this collection coordinate with the recently released Bella Rose Die, adding even more value to a die you might own already. Leave a comment on my blog or the Heartfelt Creations blog by May 14 and one lucky person will win the entire release valued at $129.99. The winner will be announced on the HC blog on June 15.

Here is the page I'm sharing this week!  This page came together so well... probably because it is based on a sketch by Rochelle Spears, her sketches are beyond fabulous!  I switched a few of the pictures up a little to accomodate what I had, the sketch called for 3 vertical pictures but I kept most of her elements!  Here is what I came up with.

These pictures where taken last week when we were heading out to a wedding.  I figured since we were all dressed up it was the perfect time to take a family photo... as you can see it isn't a very easy task to get a group of 3 looking happy and staring in the camera!  It took alot of shots to get to a usable picture so I decided to share 2 of the unusable ones as well!  LOL!  Of course this is me, my darling daughter and my sweet boyfriend!  The circle was punched using a corner punch and a technique that was shown by our very own Lisa Gregory, here is a link to the awesome video tutorial she made for the technique... I used a pan lid to draw and cut out my circle... nothing high tech here!  Here is a close up of the title block... unfortunatly I couldn't get it to photograph right but it turned out really pretty and shows up well in real life.

I filled in some of the blank space with a portion one of the bouquet stamp to get the little flower at the bottom, I colored  it with B00 which matched my ink perfectly!  I think this sentiment makes a perfect title!  Here is a closer look at the heart stamp that I colored in with copics... I glazed the flowers with stickles!  In my opinion every good page needs a little sparkle!

And of course no project ever seems complete without a flower cluster!  I love the look of the vellum mixed with the cardstock!  Such a pretty combo in my opinion!  The brads and the crystal swirls are also from HC!  I love that they carry all these little embellies to make each project extra special!

Here is where I am playing this week
Crafts and me for there Stamp something challenge as I have stamped alot of somethings on this page... flowers, leaves, lace, heart embelly, title sentiment, random patteren on cardstock... Definately somethingS! 

Scrap it forward.  There challenge right now is to scrap something that you are gratetful for... having George come into our family is something that I am truly grateful for... even if he drives me nuts from time to time... mabey even because he drives me nuts... serenity is highly overrated!... together we have a second chance at a family, check out there challenge and play along!

Fairytale Challenge is having a anything but a card challenge right now!  I just love the name of this challenge seems only fitting that I submit my fairytale family to a fairytale site... don't you think

Craft Your Passion is having an anything goes challenge (my favorite kind of challenge) well there is that catagory and my true favorite type of challenge is happening over at Diva's by Design - Florals!  I LOVE flowers use them on everything true challenge for me would be to make a page without flowers!

And last but NOT LEAST Make It Monday is having a link up party!  That is right you can link up any post that you want to share what a truly FABULOUS site!  I will be spending some time there for sure!  You should see that fabulous projects that have been linked up so far!!  GORGEOUS!
