Hello again, my crafty friends! Today I have a layout to share that was made using an older collection by Donna Salazar called Grandma's Garden.  I LURVE these gorgeous papers!

I used a sketch by Lydell Quin for this layout.  I adore her sketches!

(Sorry about the wonky photo of the layout.  The paper was a bit wrinkled and I had a hard time photographing it.  That's why it looks a little distorted.)
I cut out the floral images from a second sheet of the English Roses paper and layered them on top of the matching image using adhesive foam for dimension.  Beneath the layered image, I tucked in chipboard elements made by The Dusty Attic (Sweet Pea Border DA0593).
The bottom border was punched and hand-stitched with embroidery floss.
The ornate design you see beneath the heart is a stamped image that I embossed and fussy cut.  This stamp is called Swirly Doos by Art Gone Wild.
The pink, hand-made flower was cut with the Rose Creations dies by Spellbinders.  I followed a tutorial by Mistra Hoolahan.  You can view her flower tutorials HERE.
The vine is also an embossed image made with a DSD stamp.
...layers of hearts cut with Spellbinders dies.
The title is made up of chippie letters (Bookman ABC Set DA0666)
I outlined a few of the hearts with embroidery floss to add texture.
This photo of my hubby and I was taken a few years ago while we were still engaged.  :o)
If you look closely you can see how Donna Salazar's Bubble Wrap stamp adds an awesome texture to the background.  I used a pearl embossing powder so that the texture would appear subtle.  Love this stamp!!

That's all for today!  Thank you for stopping by!
