MISS SUNSHINE

This is a layout that I did of a photograph that was taken of my daughter in 1993, when she was nine.   
Liz is a ray of sunshine, so this PRIMA collection, called "Sun Kissed" seemed perfect here. 
Techniques used were hand stitching, inking, border punching, stamping, painting and paper curling.

SING YOUR OWN SONG

This is a creation for THE CRAFTY SCRAPPER DESIGN TEAM in Waxahachie, Texas. The photo is of my daughter, Elizabeth, who sings like a bird. 
Techniques used in this layout  were inspired by the flow of music, and curling paper seemed the perfect way to express this.  Also flowing are the SCRAP FX chipboard and the MAYA ROAD zipper flower.  
Other Techniques used were border punching, inking, hand stitching and machine stitching.
