Angel Baby

Hello scrapbooking friends! I'm so excited to share this layout that I created for the CSI Design Team with you. One reason for my joy is the story behind the scrapbook page. 

As most of you know, I am a retired elementary teacher. One of the greatest joys of teaching is witnessing the positive outcome of a former student. In this case, my husband and I were able to spend a little time with my student Robert, his wife and baby daughter. What a beautiful family they are and I enjoy being kept in the loop through social media! Here, we were able to reconnect in real life!

Now, back to the scrapbooking....

No automatic alt text available.
Here is how I solved Case File 260:

Scheme: All five colors were used
Evidence: Floral pattern, Stripes, Tassel, 
         Flowers/leaves, Lace and Gold
Testimony: Inspiration word, "Bloom"

On the background paper I used modeling paste and a honeycomb stencil to represent the sweetness of parenting. 

It seemed perfectly natural to use gold seedlings to represent the sunshine this sweet baby girl brings to her parents and grandparents! 

Techniques used are three dimensional work, texturizing, paper tearing, painting, heat embossing, and stamping.
