Hi dear friends!  I'd like to share a special layout I created for an incredible person... Jennifer Hedger.  She is a woman of strength and a great inspiration to many. 

The inspiration for this layout came from CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.  This is an AMAZING new challenge site that has a unique theme and concept and it truly gets your creative juices flowing!!  I am honored to be their Guest Designer this month!

For this layout, I have used some of my favorite products.
The gorgeous papers, by Pion Design, are called Studio of Memories.  I ADORE this collection!  (Well, I adore ALL of their collections LOL.)
All of the chipboard elements, including this Typewriter ABC Set (DA0143), are manufactured by The Dusty Attic.  I used Helmar Zapdots (cut in half) to layer my title letters.
I love this Sweet Pea Border (DA0593)!  I painted it white, inked it a slight shade of lavender and decorated the flowers with Stickles.
I used the Dusty Attic chippie called Lacing Tash DA0631 (yes, that's ME!), to add tulle lacing to my layout.  You can find a tutorial for my Twisted Lacing HERE.  
The piece below the lacing was cut from the Wrought Iron Trim Set (DA0547).
 Doily #1 (DA0479)
I found this anonymous quote on the internet and I altered it slightly.  I think it describes sweet Jen well.  :o)
All of the stitching on this layout was done by hand.  To create the stitched flourish, I lightly sketched it out with a pencil, poked the holes and stitched.
I created this rose using my favorite flower dies, Rose Creations by Spellbinders.  You can find the tutorial for my cabbage flower HERE.  I used my favorite adhesive, Helmar 450 Quick Dry, because the name is very accurate... it dries quickly! 
I layer my flowers by using a variety of different adhesives such as Zapdots, 450 Quick Dry and Liquid Scrap Dots.
The butterfly is from Karla's Kreative Korner etsy.  She has a nice selection of beautiful flutterbies!
