Cherished Moments

Flower Giveaway is Here

This Month at More Than Words we have an interesting challenge for you. The creative element is woodgrain and the word is Outdoors. So with that in mind I came up with this
My sweet granddaughter Emily enjoying a romp in the fall leaves. My background is a woodgrain paper which covers the creative element and the photo touches on being outdoors. My grandchildren and I share a love for the outdoors so it's never hard to find a photo of them in any weather!
This is the Mpodboard for November.
Now for some close-ups
Prima doily diecuts helped back my photo. I also used cheesecloth sprayed in Grab a Guy Gold from Lindy's Stamp gang and tucked it in various places around the photo to help pick up the color of those gorgeous yellow leaves. The chippies are from 2Crafty Chipboard.
I used Frank Garcia's gorgeous Amber Moon Collection from Prima that came in the Limited Edition Kit from My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club. The gorgeous flowers in this line are stunning! Also used a little ephemera heart. 
The kit included the chipboard elements and I couldn't help but use them. I used Prills to fill in some of the curves in the chipboard. 
More 2Crafty Chipboard heat embossed with Lindy's embossing powder. I did some stamping around the  photo with various Prima stamps. I used the following mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang for the background: Mission Bells Brown, Cowabanga Copper, Tangerine, Greased Lightening Green and Dark Chocolate Truffle. The cheesecloth was done with Grab a Guy Gold.
2Crafty Chipboard  embossed with Midnight Copper embossing powder from Lindy''s. You can also sea the masking work on the background. 
My adorable Emmy! It is so very hard when your grandchildren live far away! Every time you see them they have grown by feet! That is why every moment together is Cherished! I also used some Autumn glitter from Blue Fern Studios randomly to make it pop a bit more. 

I hope you give this challenge a try! Can't wait to see what you come up with. 
All the best! :)
