Hold Fast to your Memories

Hello Everyone!  Misty Here with my very first posting as a Quick Quotes DT member!  Today, I am hoping to inspire you with another Tin Type  creation.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this line!  The colors are Fantabulous and the quotes are perfect!  Here is my layout:
I have had these photos of my son and I for quite a while.  I knew that I wanted to scrap this memory, but I was unsure of what to do until I saw the Tin Type collection.  It was GORGEOUS and just perfect! My son was 14 years old and had picked some flowers for me at the park.  Not only was it sweet that the flowers were from my SON...but my FOURTEEN YEAR OLD son was doing this!  This is something that I want to remember forever...a memory that I want to "Hold Fast" and never let go!

I started with Tin Type 200 as my base and stamped in some white flourishes and dabbled in a little bit of white mist.  The package backing from the Gears Vellum silhouette served as my center sheet.  It is already lined with the white edge and has a beautiful glossy look...so I couldn't just toss it! If my layout was going to be green in color, it may as well be ALL green, right!!?? I put it to good use in my layout!

 I used the quote strip from the Tin Type 500 cut outs sheet as my title to accent my photos.  I hand made my banner and my flower, and fussy cut the swirl from Tin Type 400

My favorite part of this layout is the laser cut butterflies that are situated right in between the photos of my son and myself.  They are from the Butterflies Bag O Chips and WOW are they gorgeous!  I inked them with 4 different Powder Puff chalks and even covered the wings with stickles. They completed my "dreamy" layout perfectly! 


Thank you for Stopping by and visiting me today.  Have a WONDERFUL weekend!

You are aware of I'd been in search of internet sites and articles with only that. Makes us sense somewhat guilty however -- what exactly is a guy expected to accomplish in the event the dilemma comes about ?
