I am so in awe!

Here are my kids on Easter Sunday! It seriously seems like it was just yesterday the girls wore matching polka-dot dresses and hats and Chase wore his brand new tie on Easter and ran around the yard looking for the plastic Easter eggs the Easter bunny hid for them. Now...they are grown! They have grown right before my eyes. Where does time go? My kids are such a blessing from God and I want to capture all these precious memories on

Creative Imaginations Real Wood Paper

I really have enjoyed playing around with the Real Wood papers and experimenting
with different looks. On this page, I used the Real Wood paper as an embellishment by masking the butterfly stencil, spraying with the glimmering mists, and then cutting them out as circles. I traced the butterfly with a white pen to bring out the stenciled image some and then made scalloped circles with two of my butterflies. I then cut out one of the butterflies for an added emblishment on my page. I also love how the Real Papers can be mixed with all of the Creative Imaginations collections. On this page, I mixed it with the IOD Loolah papers and embellishments. I just love how versatile these wood papers can be when you experiment with them.
