Red & Black

How are you doing on this fine Friday afternoon? Well, this is the end of spring break I am sad to see it go. Quite honestly I could really get used to this stay at home mom gig! But unfortunately I wouldn't be able to afford it! But, needless to say I have enjoyed spending time with my girls!

Here is another layout that I completed at Get Scrappy. Haley got into baking a few years ago and she is pretty good. We were getting ready to go to a family get together and she thought it would be nice to make some chocolate chip cookies for all the cousins. I was amazed at how she not only made the cookies all by herself but that she arranged them on the plate so nice! Now, on to the details of the layout...I got the idea from a magazine. The punched out heart paper is Bazzill cardstock that is actually meant for you to sew with. But I thought it would look great with the black cardstock behind it to bring out the hearts. I had the photo enlarged to a 5x7 as I wanted it as the only photo on the page. The black and white patterned paper is from Doodle Bug and ric rac is made of felt and it is from Creative Cafe. I didn't plan it but I love the way that the ric rac turned out because it looks like a stem to the flower!

Here is a close up of the flowers. The red and white flowers are from Making Memories and the black flowers underneath are Bazzill. Nikki had a great idea to spray the black flowers with
Pearl Glimmer Mist to give them a nice sheen so they would stand out just a bit.

Thanks for peekin' in. Hope you have a great weekend!

So much more fun when I was seeing it in person but again, I really like how this turned out!

Love this layout; the shimmer on the black flowers is so subtle but really makes them pop. Love the ric rac and you're right, it DOES look just like a stem to the flower. Great job!
