Be Real

When Basic Grey came out with the Porcelain line, I just had to have it! And yet I have hoarded it and used it very little! This LO called for it... and I'm thrilled with how it worked on here! This photo was taken on DD's first day of grade 2 in Sept 09. I just love the sincerity on her face...

This page is inspired by the sketch of the week from Capture these Sketches by Guylaine. I LOVED this sketch! You have to check it out!! Remember to send in your version using it for your chance to win as well! See details on the sketch blog!! We used die cuts from our April Sponsor which was Kustom Die Kuts. That is where the heart came from! Thanks Ally!
In creating this page I made my own flowers using more papers from the porcelain line! They
are so easy to make, and yet SO adorable!! As a base under the flowers, I used this chipboard shape from Magistical Memories... I inked it using green ink and added stickles to it to give it some shine! Adding the handmade flowers and some Prima leaves finished it off perfectly!!
As a final touch to my page, i just couldn't resist adding something to the top left of the page! i decided on using a seal stamp from the SEAL IT stamp set from myStampBOX. I stamped the CUTIE/Sweat pea seal (using the same green ink as on the chipboard) onto white cardstock and cut out using a circle punch. I layered that over a scalloped circle. Added a few other goodies to finish it off and voila!! My page was complete!!
