Growing in Unity Thursday - My Story...Happy Family

A few weeks ago, I started creating an album called My Story. An simple album that contained my story, what it is to be me, what steps I have taken in my life to get where I am, and what people I have loved and met along the way. This next installment into My Story is Happy Family. I was very excited when I found the Authentique Paper - Collection Blissful in my local scrapbook store. Then to read what the die cuts said on them, made me about cry in the store. "A {happy} family is but an earlier Heaven." - George Bernard Shaw. 

To create the flowers, I used the {ippity} stamp set Flowers + Friends = Priceless, and stamped them using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the yellow cardstock. Then with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, I sprayed the flowers to give them sparkle. And to finish off the flowers, I added a rhinestone to the center of each.

Close up to see Glimmer Mist.

Supplies Used to create this page: {ippity} stamps: Flowers + Friends = Priceless; Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black; Versa Magic Chalk Ink - Niagara Mist; EK Success - Scallop Border Punch; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Flower Power & Wheatfields
