Happy - Celebr8

Hallo there.  Kobus and I recently had a photo shoot with all our grandchildren. The photographer is well known for being able to capture the mood in her photo really captured the relationship between and my love perfectly.  I wanted to scrap it as soon as possible and it really came together very quickly.  Here it is:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Celebr8 (Glamour collection); Cardstock:  American Craft; Chipboard:  Celebr8; Metal feather charms:  Celebr8; Flowers:  Prima:  Sequins: Celebr8; Ribbon and twine: Celebr8; Butterflies: Maggie Holmes (Chasing Dreams); Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (dusty concord, faded jeans, salty ocean); Stencil: Celebr8 (Glamour);  Stickles (Sea Glass)

I saw the quote on Valerie Thorpe's FB page and I knew that I wanted to use it on a page...this photo with all our twinkle wrinkles on show was just perfect for it.  

What if you’re wrinkles were signs of you feeling...                                                           feeling life and not running away.   
Signs of your bravery, of you continuing no matter what.                                   
Celebrate the ways in which you wear your story upon you.                              
Those times you laughed so hard,                                                                    
they are written on your cheeks forever.                                                              
It’s beautiful.  You’re beautiful and your eyes                                                      
have beauty dancing within them always.

                                                              Some close ups:

       I added a very thick layer of glossy accents and then scattered the sequins into the glossy accents.

 I dressed the chipboard with ink and then Sea Glass Stickles.

 I used the "Glamour" stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean.  I adore this quote.

I had some of this fussy cut butterflies on my desk and the colours were a perfect match.

Another little butterfly and a heart glittered with Stickles.
