Tickled Pink Layout And A Special Pen

Our two oldest granddaughters
 have both turned ten years old. Katie (in pink) last July and Penny just last week. Oh my, is time playing tricks on me? I really believe they were babies not more than a year ago!

I created this layout in honor
of Penny's special day and of the friendship that our two sweethearts share. May they always be this close is my prayer.

I used a mix of papers
from Prima's Delight collection along with a few odds and ends that seemed to blend quite well, like this button from Prima's Lyric collection. It's tied with some May Arts ivory burlap string. The Tickled Pink sentiment is Authentique's diction stickers. The postage stamp is from the My Mind's Eye Heirloom ephemera pack...

and the little heart was
cut from paper in the Heirloom 6 x 6 paper pad. The gems are Prima's Say It In Crystals. 

The French Lace doilies are
 from my stash. The large pink flowers are by Prima... I think they are from the Lyric collection.

I started with two layers
of the DP on top of a 12 x 12 sheet of cardboard (quite thick - I must have gotten it in an order of paper because of the size... I always save my packaging materials to recycle). Added some Golden molding paste using a Ronda Palazzari stencil from Crafters Workshop called Confetti (I especially love the tiny hearts that are in the mix). Gave it all a misting of Lindy's Stamp Gang in Salt Water Taffy Starburst and then some of Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

The larger light pink flower
is Prima Lyric collection. All the other ones are from Petaloo. The foliage here was made with Martha Stewart punches Oak Leaf and Medium Branch.

This flower cluster includes
foliage made with Sizzix Branch with Leaves. The Distress Ink I used is Frayed Burlap (again!!!)

The Penmaker created this
special pen for a friend of our sons. The pen kit is the mini bolt action bullet pen that he's done so many of lately.

The wood is Orange Osage...
you would think it would be more orange than yellow... but apparently not. We were both surprised at this color!

This is one pen I was able
to help with as he had me do the graphics for him. I understand that this is the family pet and I had three photos of the dog to work with... quite fun actually! I opted for black and white to blend better with the gun metal.

Thanks for stopping by!
