This is a lo called "Always and Forever" I did this lo of my ex husband and his live in girl friend.
wanted to give her something nice. She helps my ex with the kids when they go see him. So I descided to do this page for her.
I used clear bling and pearls and bling from prima. I punched holes around the border so the rhine stones will sit in deep.
I used th all around punch here from Martha stewart double loop punch. placed the black card stock on top of the vita bellla paper collection
I placed a double strip of hearts using the Martha Stewart punch I also used Zva Creative - Self-Adhesive Crystals - Clear Dots, and Zva Creative - Self-Adhesive Crystals - Basic Lines - .2 cm
I also used the Tim holtz metal clock and a back ground of Making memories chip board clocks.
I also used Two diffrent Martha Stewart punches to layer the butterflies. and added some diamon stickles.
for the titleI used a rub on Always and Forever.
I started my frameing with card board then a layer of Vita bella paper. I then used a black card stock paper and did that border with a double loop all around punch from Martha Stewart. Then I used a diecut from Pink paisey and sprayed that with smooch spritz. I then I used another sheet of of Veta bella paper using The Crafter's Workshop - 12 x 12 Doodling Templates I punched holes around the border and then added a large circle using my cricut expression.
I made this beautiful flower arrangement using Prima leaves, Prima - Floret Collection - Flower Embellishments. I also used the Prima - Symphony Blend - Flower Embellishments - Cappella Blue and added some other leaves from a collection I had added some Diamond stickles and Pins from Making Memories - I Do Collection and Making Memories - Vintage Findings Collection - Gem Pins and the Prima template leaves.
