Happily Ever After

Here’s a photo from when my son Nick and his fiance Aron were first engaged. There was supposed to be a professional photo shoot happening, but down by the water in Galveston, winds were gusting up to 60 mph. Not very good for hair and make-up so carefully done by professionals hired for the occasion. Aron decided to postpone the shoot, but she had her dad take photos anyway. Rich and I were invited to the beachfront hotel also, and of course I took as many photos as I could. Imagine all the emotions here with both families so thrilled about the kids finding someone wonderful, and settling down! There are just no words for that.

To make this page I took some 7 Gypsies paper and glued on some cheesecloth. I layered the cheerful Prima papers and put the photo on top. I used a couple layers of foam core board to add dimension. I surrounded the layers with lots of flowers I made. I used plain cardstock, water colors, and a flower die to make them.  I got the stamens in the cake decorating section at a local store.  I cut the flowers, and dunked them all in the watercolor, spread them on a craft sheet, and dried them using both a heat gun and just air drying.I glued the layers together, curled them with tiny round tipped jewelry pliers. and glued in the stamens.


I added a big felt flower, Thickers, Bohemian Crystals,fussy cut flowers, grey pearls, metal glitter, micro beads and a ribbon.

The blue on the ribbon is one of my favorite colors, and I dyed the paper for the flowers to match it.


The butterflies were fussy cut from a Hambly acetate overlay. It’s no coincidence that all the colors in the kit coordinate.

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great Bad Girl day!
