Celebrate Sweet Sisters!

This month I was a guest designer for Shannon Tidwell's "Products You Love Every Which Way" class over at Two Peas. The theme for this month was stamping and when I heard that I thought "Yikes!" I'm not exactly an experienced stamper (although I have plenty of them). I am very selective on what I buy these days and one of the stamp sets I recently picked up was a doily set by My Mind's Eye. I knew that was the set I wanted to work with and set about creating a subtle stamped doily border. 

Among the things I love these days is watching the relationship between my girls develop. They are pretty affectionate with each other but what I love most is when they give affection without being prompted by mom and dad.  :) 

On this layout, I started with a "starter" background by Sassafras Lass and went from there. 

The "Celebrate" part of my title is a stamp from the Jubilee collection by The Girls' Paperie. 

I stamped half of the doily to highlight one of the photos. 

To bring out the grid on the background, I cut out squares from various patterned papers in the Jubilee collection. 

Here's another peek at the stamped doily border. I heat embossed a couple of the doilies, stamped the larger ones on kraft cardstock and cut them out. I accented the border with brads by My Mind's Eye, The Girls' Paperie and Melissa Frances pearls. 

Thanks again for all the sweet words about my Pebbles Inc. news! We're having a rainy day here so I'm not exactly sure what's on the agenda today. 

Back soon! :)
