Magical Moments ....

What do you think??? Not my usual style, huh? and I didn't use a sketch. I have found bucket loads of inspiration from Paulien van den Bosch's blog, if you haven't been do go, she is such an amazing crafter. I have wanted to do a page like this for ages, but was too afraid that it wouldn't look right, as in my pages there are usually very few embellishments. But with this page, because obviously Chloe is dressed as Tinkerbell I threw everything at it except the kitchen sink. I don't think my page is anywhere as good as Paulien's but I am quite proud of it as a first attempt. Oh and I added Stickles to Chloe's wings in the 3 photos, something I had never done, I usually leave the photos alone, some inking and maybe a little distressing on the edges but the actual photos I don't touch.

Chloe actually likes the final result, whoooo whooo

When I first started this page I started it at the Crop 4 U run by Tracey at her shop on Friday afternoons, the page was my usual style. Last night I started it again and the above layout just happened, lol, well it was about 2:00 am when I finished it. The ladies at the crop wanted to see the finished layout. LOL they are going to get some surprise.

For the story and some more photos of the story behind Chloe dressed as Tinkerbell go HERE!

And just a few close up shots of all the charms on the layout.

(there are 5 charms alone in this photo)

And of course a close up of Tinkerbell, the real one!

What I used: (where do I start, lol)

Cardstock: -Bazzill
Patterned Paper:- Making Memories
Flowers:- bucket full of flowers, mostly Prima and small flower buds from Tracey's shop, big flower buds from Michael's in Georgia, some from charity shop flowers stripped down and two of my very own crochet flowers (first time using them, probably because I could hid them, lol,
Tinkerbell Image and saying:- Disney
Stickles: - Crystal
Journaling pen:- Sakura green pen (Thanks Ruth),
Brads - Papermania Antique Pearls (Boyles)
Crystals - all are Mark Richards (Alpha letters, crystals and pearls)
Lettering - Cuttlebug die - used it at the crop - Combo Love Language
Ribbon - Green ribbon
Beads - Bought form all over the place and I have them forever

Charms:- These were all bought at Tracey's shop - Creative Charms - dragon fly, reach high, butterfly, glazed hearts and flowers. Princess crown, silver heart with circles underneath, made with love and princess and fairy images, these were bought at a Craft warehouse by Tracey and there is no makers name on them, a little tip for you, if you are lucky enough to live near Tracey's shop, look on the counter near the till, there is a box full of charms, mmmmhhhh

I think that's it, but if you spot something and I haven't it listed, please let me know and I will find out. Again all bought from Tracey's shop unless I have stated otherwise

OMGosh! This is lovely, gorgeous, beautiful! And Chloe - she is growing into a gorgeous young woman!

I'm so glad I found your blog. I was just browsing my 'friends' on sb.com and thought about you.

I have no time for photo a day anymore, but I sure do miss my friends from there.

If you get anytime, drop me a line and let me know what happened with grumpy jerome. is he still out there somewhere?
