A Thing of Beauty (Layout #39)

We are so thankful for the rain that we've received but were thrilled to get some sunshine yesterday! The news coming out of Atlanta is so sad but we're fortunately up in the mountains on higher ground.

Now on to the layout: I've actually had this one for a long time. We created it at the Close To My Heart Atlanta Regional Celebration in '08, and I'm finally getting around to putting some pictures on it. I'm using it as the title page of my "teaching album."

This layout is based on the Reflections sketch, "Bottom Border- Title." I love how we accented the Silhouette paper pack, which is very neutral in Colonial White, White Daisy, Bamboo, and Black, with a Desert Sand background and Blush accents. We did a ton of direct-to-paper distressing and used the stamp set Joy Forever for the flowers and sentiment. Finally, the accents include Colonial White twill and a trio of black buttons.

The flower photos are from my yard. I love flowers!

Very pretty. I need to do 5 quick bday cards this weekend, and one thinking of you. I know you'll provide good inspiration in class!
