Bloom and Grow and some peaks

I did this LO as a survival one for scrapfactor but didn't get to use it - thankfully.  Another mix of papers on here - the ledger piece is MME, and the others are a mix of MME Jack and Jill and echo park for the record - this is a real use up your stash with the strips of paper.  This is one of my favourite shots of my young man out and about - he's growing up so fast.  The flowers are die cut with the Tim Holtz tattered rose die and then I water distressed them, layered them up and stuck buttons threaded with yet more string through the middle.  The lace flowers are literally some lace that I stuck around a small 1inch circle that was covered in tape - you pleat it as you go around and they come out really well.  For the circles I used a collection of plates in various sizes from around the house.  I made the scalloped bit around the edge of the circle with  a one inch circle punch....you will notice that it goes up to the flowers as it wouldn't have worked to go all around the circle :) so the not quite joining up right bit is hidden away.  The leaves are cut out green cardstock inked and then wrapped around some flower stems and the alpha is a glittered American Crafts thickers set.  A few dots of paint and my martha stewart doily lace punch - still love that pattern, some doodling around the scallops.





Also here are some peaks of the September Scraprat kit which gets revealed tomorrow.  It's beautiful and full of lots of lovely goodies and beautiful papers.
