As you all know Down the Memory lane is celebrating its 1st birthday and showcasing artists from different walks of the world and their unique projects.
Here's presenting another artist in the list ,the immensely talented Mary".
Thanks a lot for being a part of Artist's week.
Keep your eyes open for a creative extravaganza from 15-30th MAY...
When Nupur asked if anyone would like to help her celebrate I jumped at the chance. Her work is so incredible and who wouldn't like to help her celebrate her first year of blogging? As a fellow Pinquette I also thought it was a great way to use some fabulous Pinque Peacock products. So, I decided what better way to help you see some great flowers, help Nupur celebrate and finish a layout of one of my grand daughters? I call that "winning"!!!!
I am so excited to be able to help Nupur Patel celebrate her 1st birthday in the world of blogs. Her blog: Down The Memory Lane, can be found HERE . There have been some wonderful projects so far from some very talented artists, literally from around the world! You read that correctly since this hop origins in India where you can find Nupur and her equally talented family. Don't you just love the internet?
So I wanted to join this celebration not only to help Nupur celebrate, but, also to push me to get some projects done. I decided it was time to scrap the Thank You card we received from my grand daughter over a year and a half ago. (Ok, so I am a slow scrapper, what can I say, lol). I also had some wonderful Pinque Peacock swirl flowers I had custom ordered and boy did they just make this layout! Let's take a look:
Mia is the prime example of a "girlie" girl. For her 5th birthday we had a baking party. I made over 25 aprons for both boys and girls. Each of the kids donned their aprons and set about decorating cookies, cupcakes etc. I have to explain that this was the end of August when we should have had beautiful weather. Instead, we had a tropical storm, the remnants of a Hurricane so the rain was torrential ! We did get through the party and safely home before the power went out, for days...... This theme party was perfect since all activities were indoors.
As usual, I digress, lol! I decided to journal around the black background to give a few details about the party. This added to bringing out the stitching on the black ribbon. I also embossed the filigree design on the bottom and went over the raised design with a white gel pen. I wanted to break it up a bit so I added a ribbon with a pink border and white polka dots on the black background.
Since Mia loves to bake, I used some mulberry heart dies I had and added a small heart pearl to the center.
I must admit that I save a lot of things, including this bow. It had been from a gift I received and I just thought this ribbon would come in handy some day and, it did. The beautiful pink, silver and black swirl flower is from Pinque Peacock which has wonderful flower embellishments.
I had special ordered these from Jessica @ Pinque Peacock's Shop and they were perfect for this layout. That is the great thing about this shop. Jess is so easy to work with and always can custom order exactly what you need. You can get some great embellishments for yourself @ the shop HERE.
I had the leaves hanging around for a long time and spritz them with a white sparkle. The other black and white flowers are also from my stash. Below is a picture of the lower corner:
Well that's it for now. I hope you will follow Nupur both on her blog and on her FB page HERE
join in for more fun.....:D
