Be sure to also check out the details of our monthly DT challenge hosted by Sandi here: DT Challenge
Everyone is welcome to participate, all entries for both challenges due by February 20th.
Our Blog Hop features 9 fantastic blogs including our Design Team.
We have been scrapping away and are so excited to show you our  creations!

I'll start by sharing the layout I created with Amy's fabulous sketch. Our daughter, Elizabeth, became engaged to Andrew in May, with an October wedding. This is one of their engagement photos. 

"Dream Come True"
Main Kit

I used just the main kit for this page. There are so many options with this gorgeous paper collection by Prima, but if you have any engagement or wedding photos, this is a great kit to pull them out to scrap!! Look at all the wonderful goodies in this kit from the set of canvas and felt hearts to the sweet pink blossoms and twine. I added the Dusty Attic Chipboard from my stash. ScrapThat! takes Dusty Attic Orders every quarter so you can get exactly the pieces you want. Some time ago I found a package of little heart/key trinkets clearanced down to a mere 50 cents that I scattered around the page as well. I'll be giving you the details on how I created the stamped canvas hearts next month.

Here's a little tip for you. I always cut out the paper behind my larger mats to use for creating other embellishments. The back side of this paper is a lovely pink. I cut out behind the large black alpha photo mat and used this paper along with the Smooch included in the kit to create my larger focal flower. I'll be sharing a photo tutorial on how to create this "Full Bloom Rose" in February. 

"True Love Stories"
Main Kit, EAO, FAO

Another of Elizabeth and Andrew's engagement photos. A friend told me this looked like a photo from a fairy tail, so I couldn't resist using this sentiment on the page, "True love stories never have endings." Don't you just love it when you have stamps that work for a title? 

Not only is the main kit fabulous, the Flower Add on includes these amazing Prima beauties and the Embellishment add on has the lovely Prima cherubs and gorgeous KaiserCraft heart flourishes. I added another of the Dusty Attic flourishes purchased from ScrapThat!. I also had fun with some mixed media gesso and glimmer mist. Again, I cut about a two inch border for my layered edge and used the rest to create more embellishments ~ the small roses, leaves, butterfly, and heart flourish. 

I have entered this page in Prima's January BAP.

"A Perfect Day"
Main Kit, EAO, FAO

Just a couple weeks ago we finally got the wedding photos and it was well worth the wait. I had one page left to create with my kit, so you know it had to be a wedding photo. Don't they look happy? 

I used this fabulous sketch by The Scrapping Stamper, Shannon White for inspiration:
Her sketch and DT projects will be posted tomorrow (Saturday).
I hope you'll drop by and check out the projects and check out her sketches. 
She posts a new one each month. 

Can you believe these pages were all from the same kit? I love the variety of looks that you can get from this collection. More fabulous embellies from the main kit with the gorgeous Zva pearls, doily,  kraft tag, lovely selection of ribbons, and sweet pearl heart ribbon slide. The lovely Prima flowers are in the FAO kit and the sparkly red Green Tara hearts and wood heart flourish are in the EAO kit.

Have you noticed all the clustered ribbon banners lately? These ones were inspired by our former DT member, Marilyn Rivera. I love how she works her paper to look like fabric! Of course my DA chipboard piece came with my most recent ScrapThat! quarterly order.
