When the party is over.....

....and the cake has been eaten
The presents have all been opened....
....and the friends have all gone home
All you have left is a MEMORY!
Here is my latest memory...
on my nieces 10th Birthday!


I have been revisiting my creative roots
....creating layouts!
The Sugar Shoppe Collection by Doodlebug
was just perfect for my MEMORY!

To begin my creative process
I used the latest sketch at
Once Upon a Sketch!


I had lots of fun creating the background...
I began with The Crafter's Workshop Stencil ~ Quatrefoil Reversed
and Wendy Vecchi's/Studio 490 ~  Crackle Texture Paste
I applied Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze,
one I sprayed with water to facilitate it to run down the paper,
and the other I used a straw to blow the Glaze around.

......then I began on the flower cluster.

The colors of the Doodlebug paper
allowed for a wide variety of
Petaloo Blooms to be used...
Botanica Minis
Velvet Hydrangeas
Wild Mini Blossoms
all nestled around a
Botanica Bloom


I will cherish this MEMORY
for a very LONG TIME!
