Little Miss Curious-Guest Dessigner Scraps of Elegance

Here is the last layout I did for Scraps of Elegance for July as Guest Designer.

This is my oldest grandaughter Lilly the day of my wedding peeking through the window into the room beside mine. This was actually her room but we were waiting for it to be cleaned. I loved the venue an old haunted Inn called Inn at The Falls in Bracebridge. Lilly was one of my flower girls. I used the both Bo Bunny and Pink Paislee papers for this layout.
I wanted to use up more of the gorgeous embellishments that came with this kit one of them being this lovely teal ribbon. Teal and purple were the colors for my wedding and I loved that it matched Lilly's dress. The large beige flower is from Prima (in the kit) and the blue one is Petaloo. Of course the little one is mine :)
The resin doors from Prima were also in the embellishment kit. I wanted them to look old to match the doors in the picture so I sprayed them with gold Shimmer Spritz and then when dried I added a coat of gloss to prevent any gold flakes from coming off.

This resin piece came from my stash. I colored it using my Tim Holtz markers.

I used a Prima mask and some modelling paste to add one of the flowers on the bottom and one on top. Then I used a Tim Holtz marker and my water pen and spread it around trying to bring out different shades of the teal color. Beside it I pencilled in the same image just smaller and cut it out of the paper so the patterned paper underneath would show through. I did the same on top.
I rolled my paper down and added some roses from the kit. They were white but I used the Vibez mist from the kit to turn them pink. The brad came from Bo Bunny brads in the main kit. I found a piece of teal lace that I loved and tucked it behind the flowers and added a piece of Dusty Attic (Swirly Vines #3 DA0751) for an extra flourish.
I added the birdhouse from my stash (DA Birdhouse DA0699)  and two small flowers the crochet one with the Bo Bunny brad is from the kit the other one is a little one I made. Well that's it for today. Sorry it's been so quiet here  we've had a run of bad luck the worst being a Tornado that hit us last Friday. We had a neighbor's tree come done and bounce off my roof before it landed in my yard taking out my gardens I worked ten years to build up. :( But after touring the town I know that we were very fortunate in that many people lost so much more and my heart goes out to them! Also have Lilly this week so it's been pretty hectic! My hat goes off to all you ladies who can scrap with young children around! lol All the best and be well! :)
