Magical Moment

Wow life has been so busy lately but hopefully with winter almost upon us things will slow down and there will be more time for activities like scrapbooking. I got my cross stitch out last night after over 8 months in storage. Some of the reason for digging it out was an inspiring crafting weekend last week with a group of amazingly talented ladies. It was a weekend for finishing off UFO's (unfinished objects) of all different crafts, knitting, quilting, embroidery and scrapbooking.  

Before attending the weekend I completed this layout which is my new favourite.

I used Gelatos to shade the background in Metallic Melon, Lemon, Guava and Raspberry. I then mixed some of the Raspberry with texture paste and used a stencil of splats and circles on the page. I also mixed some black ink with texture paint (which turned out grey) and used a word stencil. Then stamped a net randomly.

I added flowers and black embossed frames and twirls.

I think the bit I like the most is in the top left hand where I embossed some doily and added a butterfly and heart trinkets. I have since made this my screen saver on my cell phone as I liked it so much.
Hope you like it as much as I do and can see why its my favourite. Until next time (which I promise wont be as long as this one has been coming) I had promised myself weekly blogs but I'm not doing too good so far.
