..:: december daily day 23 ::..

Hello friends! I am back today with another day in my December Daily Album. I am also up on the {a flair for buttons} blog with this one. Here is my day 23 spread:

This two page spread looks like this when you flip the tag:

Here is a look at the flair I used on this layout:

It's a cardinal, and meant to represent those missing from our celebration. This flair is available in the Watercolor Winter Flair 3 set. Here is a look at my journaling:

I noticed a typo after I had already finished -- but I'm going to live with it.  Here are a couple more  close ups:

I'm so close to finishing this project! I made a video of my process, if that's something that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you again soon!  XO o.g.

..:: maybe it's maybelline ::..

Hi friends! I am up on The Cut Shoppe blog today with this layout using the Floral Frames cut file designed by Ashley Horton. I chose papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee's Whimsical collection this is what I ended up with:

Here's a look at the cut file:

 So, once I cut the file and started playing with the papers and my photo, I decided that I didn't want the flowers in a frame, but I loved the flowers -- so I fussy cut them! Once I did that, it came together pretty quickly! Here are a few close ups:

I showed my One True Love the photo of our daughter and said, "Title please," and he immediately responded, "Maybe It's Maybelline", which was perfection!

I dug out an earlier Paige Evans collection (Oh My Heart) for the lipstick that I fussy cut from a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper.  That was the perfect touch!

I loved working with this cut file and I cannot wait to cut it again and use it as a frame!  I made a video of my process if that's something that suits your fancy!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!  XO o.g.
