flourish page for kendall's album

Another page is done for Kendall's "secret album". The picture on this page was from her 10th birthday. Instead of a birthday party {which are very expensive these days!} we gave her a $225 visa gift card & I took her and a few friends to Myrtle Beach South Carolina. At the time we were living in Charleston so it was only a 90 minute drive. We stayed in a suite at one of the resorts on the beach. We had such a great time. Not all of my children's birthdays are this ellaborate, however she turned 10 and she was now in double digits. We were sitting on the couch in the suite & my son who was 4 or 5 at the time, took this picture.
The page is whisper white, the dp is from Afternoon Tea {SU occasions catalog avail. Mar 1st} I used Baroque Motifs, Always & Live your Dream {mini occasions} stamps sets. Here is a huge tip, If you order anything from the mini occasions catalog, save the piece of paper that you pull off when you are about to set the stamp on the wood block. Everything is die-cut so you can use the wax paper that you pull off to use it as a mask! I thought I was a genious when I needed a mask last night and I just put the stamp together...and the wax paper was on the table still there. Thats how the flourishes isn't going over the flowers. Everything is stamped in chocolate chip except the flowers and the butterflies. I stamped those with versamark and then went over the image with stampin pastels. The ribbon is groovy guava double stitched ribbon by SU. I used my nestabilities to cut out the picture & for all of the layering. I embossed the dp, however you don't get the same raised image you would get using a thicker cardstock. I love this new paper! Don't you just love how it matches perfectly to the stamp! Anyhow I better go we are watching a movie & I had my husband pause it so I could blog lol. Talk to you later >"<
