In the pink

If you create a layout for one grand daughter, well you've got to create one for the other grand daughter as well. Our youngest grandchild is two and loves pink. Or maybe she loves pink because her older sister says she does? Whatever the case may be, she gets very excited when she sees something for her that is pink. She just giggles and exclaims "peeeeenk"! Since this is displayed with her older sister's layout, on small easels next to one another, I tried to keep some of the elements the same. Same big flower different color, buttons, pearls, wire spirals, and lace flowers. Click here to see the post with the blue page.

This year, instead of creating a layout and stuffing it in a page protector in an album, I have purchased a few easels on which to display the pages before they find their permanent home in an album. How much fun it is to see the pages. And the girls just love to come over to see which picture is on display.

The large pink flower is a QuicKutz die cut from white cardstock.
Stamp the flower with VersaMark Watermark stamp pad using your favorite background stamp. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder. Shake of excess powder and heat emboss. Using a sponge dauber, dab two colors of Ranger's Distress Inks (Fired Brick and Tattered Rose) sparingly on the flower. Spritz with a fine mist of water. This will blend the colors. Buff the ink off of the embossing. I then over-sprayed with a mixture of Walnut Ink Crystals, white perfect pearls and water. Once again, lightly remove the ink from the embossed areas. Adhere a paper flower with a button center to the center of the pink flower. Wrap gold wire around a Ranger mister, clipping as desired. Glue a pearl to one end and stick the other end between the two flowers. Hope you have fun creating a layout of your own...

Be Creative!
