First things first, I used good ol' random.org and it picked # 3, so Kimberly Kett you are my Birthday Blog Hop winner!! Please send me your address and I will get your prize pack on it's way!!!
On to today... I used the Splendor collection on this layout for "Circle Week" over on the GCD Studios Blog. The photo is of my Mom and I on her first Mother's Day way back in 1964. The photo looks great with these papers, but I could have just as easily used photos from 2012 that would look perfect too.
To create this fun scallop look, I punched small scalloped circles, and glued them to the back of a larger circle. I did a little machine stitching to add a bit of dimension.
I added the "a sweet life" ribbon since I thought my Mom deserved a ribbon to honor her on her special day. I layered a few of the tags from the labels and tags paper and cut two pennant shapes to the ends to really make it look like a ribbon.
Supplies Used: patterned paper - GCD Studios Splendor line (1676) Candytuft, (1679) Labels & Tags, (1680) Letter Tiles, (1682) Pink Flora, (1683) Posies, (1684) Sunswept, (1685) Tiny Blossoms, (1687) Zig Zag, Twine - The Twinery
