My Creative Scrapbook - True Love LO

 I was such a cute baby!  Look at that hair-style.... I even continued this tradition with my own children, little mo-hawks.   This is my last layout/project for the My Creative Scrapbook, Limited Edition Kit for February.  What a wonderful feast of products I got to play with this month.  You can find all kit information 'HERE', and the Limited Edition Kit information 'HERE'. 

My Mother waited a long time for my arrival, she had many losses and often said to me, it was 'true love' when I arrived. 
 The background paper was just too pretty to cut into, so I opted to use it as my base, doing a little mixed media with paints and texture paste - a few splatters of Glimmer Mists, and ink to complete.
The trinket does have words inside, though very hard to photograph with the domed glass. 
 I used some small glass beads to highlight in 'trails' - almost resembling a bead spill, over the whole layout.  I absolutely love this 'look' and you'll no doubt be seeing it a lot more in my work in time to come.  My bead collection is calling my name!  LOL

 Fussy cut elements from other papers in the kit, became flowers - again filled with tiny glass beads.
 Corrugated board and me are best friends, and I adore teaming it with beautiful patterned papers - paint works wonderfully, ink just loves soaking into the edges giving an aged appearance without much effort.  I have more ideas for cardboard.....mmmm

Well that is it for me for this month in my projects/creations for My Creative Scrapbook.  Soon another month will be here, and another kit or two to highlight. 
Happy Creating
Sandie

Oh you were such a cute baby Sandie and I I am totally in love with the mohawk hair style.. it is so nice you continued the tradition.. I love the meaning behind the layout with your mom waiting for you for so long sadly after so many losses... Now as for your layout you blew my mind again!! I am loving the edges of the gorgeous background paper that I am so happy you didn't cover, yet cleverly you partially covered it with that beautiful array of textures... The bead idea is the cat's meow!!!! I am going to be finally using up mine, thank you for all your wonderful ideas.. can't wait to see what you will make with next months kit...I bet you can't either!!! OH! and I love love love the flowers in the torn edges of the paper, just brill!!! You make my day with your art!!! Big Fat hugs
