TCR #29

I've got a layout, for you all, today.
I started this layout by machine stitching, with light-green-threaded, straight stitches, eight-inch-squares of textured, Whisper White cardstock in the centers of the Certainly Celery, polka dot, patterned papers.  I, then, machine stitched, again, with light-green-threaded, straight stitches, hand cut, from pink paper, scallops, just above the rows of pictures.
The words love and sight, in the "LOVE @ first SIGHT" title, were stamped, in Certainly Celery ink, on Whisper White cardstock; and the former was hand cut and adhered, with dimensionals, tucked under a pearlized button, laced with hemp twine, in the center of a hand-cut, from text, patterned paper, heart, which was anchored with a few, pink, embroidery floss stitches.  I, then, cut the @, with my Cricut, from Baja Breeze cardstock...
and anchored the "first", alpha stickers on a length of hemp twine. A little glitter completed the title.
The dandelions were cut, with my Cricut, from Pretty in Pink cardstock and glittered, before being adhered to the page.
The poppies were cut, with my Cricut, from Pink Pirouette cardstock and inked up, at their centers, with Tea Dye & Antique Linen inks and, on their edges, with Pretty in Pink ink, before being glued, in place, amidst the Cricut-cut, from Certainly Celery, cardstock leaves, which had been inked, for dimension, with Certainly Celery ink.
The text, patterned, paper flowers were, also, cut with my Cricut; adhered, to the layout surface, some with dimensionals and others without; and embellished with pearls.  Finally, the roses were stamped, in Baja Breeze ink, on Whisper White cardstock; glittered; hand cut out; adhered, to the layout, some with dimensionals and others flat to its surface; and embellished with stamped, in Certainly Celery ink, leaves, which were hand cut out and adhered in the same way.
A few lengths of hemp twine, spurting out amongst the blossoms; a few, extra flowers in the top right corner of the right side of the layout...
and the Whisper White, cardstock, journal strips, which read, Ezekiel was, absolutely, giddy with excitement to see and hold you.  Nov. 1, 2008, complete the look.
My inspiration, for this layout, came from The Color Room's Palette #29 {Her Room}.
I've got about a hundred things to do to get us ready to leave for my daughter's birthday party, this weekend; so, I'm going to cut this short, but thanks so much for checking in.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!
