Daddy's Girl

I'm not sure where my post went.  ugh.  Blogger and I are not friends lately!

Let's try again...

I'm back from a house renovation hiatus with Hand Stamped Sentiments this week and I really like what I cooked up!  Here is the challenge:

Yum, right?!?!  I found a black and white photo sitting on my desk and went for it.  Take a look:

Kendall is a complete Daddy's girl and I love these moments!  It's a fairly simple layout, but I wanted to draw you to the photo.

I started by "flicking" my Crumb Cake paper with some White Craft refill.  I also added some of those tiny pearls to the specks.  (I don't know about you, but those tiny ones are always the ones I have left over, I'm glad to have come up with an idea how to use them!)

Once that was dry, I added a piece of Blushing Bride chevron DSP from the Subtles collection.  I roughed up and sponged the edges.  Next was a piece of the Core Soft Sky paper that I ran through with a non SU emboss folder, again sanding and sponging.  I added a doily that I inked up with Calypso Coral ink.  Then I created my arrow-a sucker stick, some Brushed Gold pieces from the Chevron punch (that I trimmed a bit) and the smallest heart framelit.  Love it!  Next I added a piece of Brushed gold banner and heat embossed the letters using the gold paper and White Emboss Powder.

Again, super simple, but I love saving these memories!  Now head over and check out the rest of the team's projects!  You have two weeks to play along!
